What to Expect: Coral Canyon burst onto the Red Rock scenary of Southern Utah in 2001 and instantly became a favorite of many patrons leaving the cold north during the winter and spring months. The course is located 10 miles north of St. George and close to I-15 for easy access. While some of the holes are found along a residential development, much of the course is isloated from outisde distractions. Mountain views, arroyos, and rocky terrain are found throughout Coral Canyon where very few golfers will elect to walk the undulated and challenging terrain. The course features an interesting routing by starting with back-to-back par 5s and then incorporating a combination of three par 3s, three par 4s, and three par 5s on the back nine. The course averages about three bunkers per hole and water is not a factor players have to contend with. Conditioning in recent years has suffered compared to when the course first opened, but that layout is one of the best in the region.
