Golf, Utah, Dixie, Red Rock

Golf in Utah's Dixie

Golf courses are found in all areas of the state, from high elevation tracks along foothills, staid parkland courses more than a century old, stunning lakeside courses, and famed desert courses.

Golf Among Iconic Red Rock and Lofty Rocky Mountain Peaks

Sportwriter Bob Ryan calls golf, "A passion, an obsession, a romance, a nice acquaintanceship with trees, sand and water." Utah's roughly 120 courses will help get you closer to some of the earth's most varied and spectacular landscapes that define Utah: Life Elevated®.

If you're a golfer, any trip to Utah must include at least a day on one of our renowned courses.

From lush, high altitude teeing grounds of the Wasatch Back to the stunning fairways of Southern Utah's red rock country, you'll find quality links with professional staffs, top accommodations and very competitive green fees.

Northern Utah/Wasatch Front

The Wasatch Front, the state's urban core, is home to not only some of the state's best courses, but also unbelievable values. Just minutes from the gateway to Utah and the Intermountain West, Salt Lake City International Airport, you can find dozens of courses — all framed by the majestic Wasatch Mountains. Downtown Salt Lake itself is a five-minute drive from the airport, or a fifteen-minute ride on the TRAX light rail line

It doesn't end there, however, as the entire area north to south, from Brigham City and Ogden to Payson, is dotted with inviting courses. Utah Valley, for instance, just 30 minutes from the SLC airport and served by a regional airport in Provo, is home to eleven courses, including the Johnny Miller-designed golf course at Thanksgiving Point. 

Wasatch Back 

Some of Utah's most iconic courses are on the Wasatch Back. Heber Valley has several clubs, including two fantastic public courses in Wasatch Mountain State Park and Soldier Hollow. Park City is about skiing in the winter, but after the snow melts you can catch visitors at the Park City Golf Club, adjacent to Historic Main Street

Slopes to Greens

Thanks to the proximity of Utah's Wasatch Mountains to the Wasatch Front metropolitan areas, trips to Utah can easily combine a morning of skiing with an afternoon of golf, especially in the spring.

Slopes to Slickrock to Greens

Of course, with Salt Lake City as your international gateway city, you could ski The Greatest Snow on Earth® at one of 14 statewide resorts and hit Utah's Mighty 5® national parks in one choose-your-own-adventure itinerary. The iconic red rock of Southern Utah is roughly three hours from Salt Lake City, and includes five spectacular national parks with dozens of beautiful golf courses to be found at nearby gateway towns.

Southern Utah

Southwestern Utah is gaining recognition as a premier golf destination in the West, combining spectacular red rock scenery with top-rated courses. The golf courses in St. George are bucket-list courses.

Rural areas of Southern Utah are all about hidden gems. Moab's golf courses are the perfect complement to a vacation spent hiking, backpacking or biking. If you are into beating the crowds, quality greens, and inspirational scenery, maybe Monticello's Hideout Golf Course is for you. 

Utah Weather and Climate 

Worried about the weather in Utah? While we can't control it, we are fortunate enough to have a varied climate across three distinct physiographic regions, so there is almost always perfect golf weather someplace in the state, all year-round.
