Dixie Red Hills was the first golf course developed by the City of St. George. Red Hills opened for play in the mid-1960s and, because of its spectacular red rock setting and playability, has been the favorite of recreational golfers ever since. Red Hills is a 9-hole par-34 layout that meanders around the sandstone cliffs of “Utah’s Dixie.” This golfer-friendly course also features hundreds of mature Cottonwoods, Mondale Pines, Mesquite, and other trees that provide ample shade during St. George’s warmer months. Each hole is quite distinct and will leave a lasting memory in the minds of golfers. Three holes that will stand out most are #1, #3, and #6. The first hole at Red Hills is a short, up-hill par four. From the tee it appears quite innocuous. But if you are lucky enough to get past the huge red rock sentry located in the fairway adjacent to the green, your worries have just begun. The first green features three tiers separated by three-foot slopes just waiting to frustrate even the best of players. The third hole is the only par-five at Red Hills. It is basically a semi-circle around imposing sand stone cliffs. If you could tee off directly toward the green, the hole would be no more than a par three. This hole finishes with a huge two-tiered green bordered on each side by hungry bunkers. Hole number six is the last of Red Hills’ three par-three holes. Although less than 150 yards, the forced carry over an inviting crystal-blue lake provides more than enough challenge. This is one of the most picturesque holes in the region. Golfers often talk about being addicted to the game. once you play Dixie Red Hills, you to will understand the game’s allure!

Southgate is a favorite among retired players because of its laid back feel. This 6,100-yard par-70 layout features two distinctly different nines. The front side is relatively flat and cris-crosses the lazy Santa Clara river.
Although not a long course, with eight of the nine holes requiring shots over or around water, golfers must bring their “straight-shooting” clubs. Five holes on the front nine have been redesigned over the past two years. The favorite hole here is the newly remodeled par-four seventh. After a tee shot that must avoid the river on the right and out-of-bounds on the left, players must hit an approach shot over a lake to an undulating green with water right and two deep grass bunkers behind. The new seventh hole epitomizes Southgate’s demand for accuracy.

Multiple signature holes await you on any of the three nines, perhaps the most memorable hole is located on the Woodbridge nine. The par 3 fourth is not only daunting but one of the most spectacular holes in all of Southern Utah. A beautiful par three with elevated tees to a completely surrounded island green. Always a challenging, but favorite of players at Sunbrook Golf Club.
Each layout has many arguable signature holes, like The Point’s par four 5th, breathtaking views of Snow Canyon. Or the Black Rock’s par 5 second hole. This challenging par five is not long but the approach shot is demanding as any hole on the course. A thin, tree-lined fairway narrows to a ravine guarding the green surrounded by large trees. A difficult shot, but more importantly a beautiful golf hole!
