What to Expect:  Located 20 miles northeast of St. George at the tip of the Red Rock Golf Trail, Sky Mountain is a scenic course with a layout more focused on fun then a championship challenge. Tipping out under 6400 yards, this par 72 layout features a scenic front nine free of distractions and a back nine that plays its way around the perimeter of a housing development. The course averages less than two bunkers per hole and features two water hazards that come into play on four holes. Given the distances between some of the holes, you'll find most patrons electing to ride a cart which also helps conquer some of the elevation changes. The course is maintained in good shape and the range of pricing options varying upon on the time of day, week, and year offer something for virtually everyone.
