It is not necessarily a fair statement, but nonetheless it is true: players navigate Sand Hollow’s Championship course’s front nine as a means to merely get to the star of the show - the inward half.

The par-3 11th hole and the par-3 15th hole bookend a breathtaking stretch that can only be fully appreciated after playing it in the last light of the afternoon. A setting sun reflecting pink light off the canyon rock is something to behold. Nos. 11, 12 and 13 are as fine a three-hole stretch as I can recall. They are especially memorable because the are not next to a body of water.

The front nine holes aren’t bad, they just pale in comparison to the grandeur of the back nine. The par 5s are short and it is possible to stockpile a few birdies on the front in preparation for hanging on later in the round.

There is GPS on the cart to assist, but beware the ball flies a little further in this dry desert air.

The bunkers are deep and are designed to play as true hazards. Loose impediments abound.

The clubhouse is a modest, yet beautiful structure that is in the style of this region. Full range.

Watch out for the rabbits! They are everywhere.

This course allowed a fivesome to play backing up the whole course. There where times we had three groups backed up on one hole. After we were done we went in for lunch and were completely ignored by the waitress who only had one other table. So we left and went somewhere else

This course is a Five Star course for views and layout.

The shape of the course was not good but that may be due to the time of year.

The amenities on the course were not what one would expect from a expensive course. The washrooms were plastic portable toilets and four coolers of water were the only refreshments available other than club house.

The course vistas are 360 degrees of beauty. The course itself is pretty straight forward and flat.. Holes 11-15 along the canyon edge are spectacular. It’s unfortunate there weren’t more holes such as this.

I found the course to be in need of water. The fairways were very hard. Taking a divot was next to impossible. The greens were equally firm and in need of water. I’m not sure why the course was like this.

The water buckets for towels around the course were great.

I’d certainly play it again.

This course was excellent. Great layout and condition. Only problem was that we booked it through GolfNow a week in advance and were locked in to that date. The weather took an unexpected change and was forecast for cool temperatures in low 60's with very high winds of 35-45 MPH and gusts up to 60. Since we could not reschedule, we had to play in these conditions. We saw rain and snow in the nearby mountains. The wind was as forecast and affected everything. Wind affected every putt over 2 feet. The wind moved my ball 3 times as I addressed my putts. The weather ruined my chance to truly enjoy this fantastic course. Took a lot of pictures though. So will you if you play this course!

Huge fairways making if difficult to miss them wide. Very large green complexes but they were contured to a degree that reading them was tough but fair. Did not like the bunkers because of the use of red sandstone and not real sand. The sandstone plays more like dirt and there were large pebbles in it. This is the only reason I did not give the course 5 stars. The back 9 was spectacular in terms of views of the surroundings

Red Sand! So cool. Really a stunning looking course. The setting is wonderful and the staff was very welcoming.

We had about an hour frost delay, but staff did a great job getting things moving afterward.

Like other courses in the area, I found the greens to be very difficult. Fast and slippery. Very different than the greens in TX.

I enjoyed this layout. The par 3s were all fantastic. Really enjoyed the round, despite playing terrible. The scenery alone is worth the price of admission.

Check it out!
