My Wife and I just got back from our 30th Anniversary trip to St. George. What an awesome area. We spent a week at Entrada and played five rounds of golf. We spent a day at Zion National Park also. I can't speak highly enough of the area and people. Everyone was so nice. We played The Ledges with WRX member RSinSG, it was a very nice course and it was great to meet Ron. We played Entrada the next day, highly recommend, but I think you have to be staying there to play the course. We also spent some time at the range at Entrada through the week. We splurged and stayed in a Casita, and it was an awesome place to stay. Even played a little Pickle ball. We went to Zion the first evening and drove through the tunnel and hiked the Overlook Trail. Then we spent most of another day at Zion and hiked Angels Landing. It was awesome and scary at the same time. We took a day off after that to recover from Angels Landing. The next day we headed down to Mesquite, NV and played Wolf Creek and Conestoga. Wolf Creek was a neat experience and would recommend playing at least once. Too expensive to play more than that. We were not too impressed Conestoga, too many blind tee shots and just not as nice as the other courses. The last course we played was Sand Hollow and it was super nice also. Sand Hollow State Park looked like a lot of fun, for ATV/UTV riding also. We wanted to play Sky Mountain, but couldn't fit it in. Ron (RSinSG) gave us lots of tips on eating places and things to do while we were there, he was a wealth of great information and just a super nice guy. The whole area is clean with lots of new construction going on. The roads were excellent and seemed to handle the traffic well. We liked the town of Hurricane well also, its out by Sand Hollow on the way to Zion. We will definitely be going back to the area. The weather was great the whole time, I think it can get windy, but it wasn't while we were there. Next time we will skip Mesquite and just play the rest of the courses around St. George. If I had to rate the course, I would pick : 1. Entrada 2. Sand Hollow 3. The Ledges 4. Wolf Creek and a distant 5. Conestoga. Food wise, you have to hit up Bella Marie's Pizza, Anasazi Steak House, and Anglica's Mex Grill. A person could spend a week just visiting Zion National Park if he wanted.

Glad you had a good time Mitch. The weather was not at its best when you were here, but probably much better than home for you. It's been funny this year and it was still cold (for us) with some rain the other day which is unusual. I'm glad we were able to get a round in. We had a great time playing with you and the missus. Hopefully the area impressed you enough to make the short list for your retirement considerations. It truly is an amazing place to live. It has something for everyone here.

I hope you’re successful Shooter because other than Arches NP and trail riding Moab is pretty desolate.

I'd been planning a trip to Wolf Creek on my next Vegas trip which was supposed to be a conference in September, but now cancelled. Noticed that you ranked it lower than sand hollow and ledges in St George where I'll be next week with my family at Sand Hollow for a spur of the moment summer Zion road trip. Will be at Sand Hollow from 7/18-7/23

Was it worth the drive from St George would you say?

If you've never played Wolf Creek I feel it's worth the trip. Its a unique course, some holes are unrealistic but every tee box is picture worthy. I played it two years ago on a golf trip to Vegas. It was a bucket list course for me. Would I play it again? Yes if people in my group wanted to or never played there. Couple of things to think about, the course tends to get windy in the afternoon so make a morning tee time. Also their driving range is maybe 220 yards so they don't allow any more than an iron on the range.
