645 W 1250 N | St. George | golf.sgcity.org
Want to go to the very first golf course developed by the city of St. George? Introducing Dixie Red Hills Golf Course! From a desert gas station pump to the absolutely gorgeous rolling greens og a golf course surrounded by red rock formations so close you can go up and touch them!
A shorter course than the others we’ve talked about on our list today, coming in at 9 holes at a 34 par, this course is quite literally in nature, you can see the picture above that if you take your swing a certain way, well you might see your ball bounce off those rocks!
Now every hole at Dixie Red Hills Golf Club is one to remember, but the team highlights holes 1, 3, and 6 as especially special due to the environment and tricky uphill battles ahead…(you’ll get that joke when you play at Dixie we promise).
“Pleasantly surprised on the condition of this course during February! Fairways were well kept and greens were firm. The red rock surrounding the course is beautiful! If you’re in St. George, be sure to stop by!” -Google Review

Green Spring Golf Course is a favorite amongst both visitors and locals for offering a top tee-ier experience at affordable pricing. Gene Bates, an award winning golf course designer, took Green Spring Golf Course to a new level with his expertise back in 1989 when this place first opened. Ranked as one of the best in the state by Golf Digest, this course continues to draw people in who are new to the game or seasoned pros.
Ever have the dream of putting across the red rock formations? Well you will absolutely love holes 5 and 6 of this course as you will be swinging over a red-rock canyon. Green Spring Golf Course offers views of Pine Valley Mountain and Red Cliffs State Park Recreation Area while playing. (We do have to say though, this course is notably difficult, hole 6 was once ranked the hardest hole in all of Utah, but now resides on a list of one of the hardest holes in Utah, so if you’re in for a challenge, Green Spring Golf Course may be the place for you).
“One of my favorite courses to play in Southern Utah. The views are amazing and there are a few holes (#5, #6, #11) that will test your mental and physical skills. Of course the payoff is bragging rights to your buddies when you walk away with the skins on those holes.” -Google Review
