Surrounded by red sandstone cliffs, the Entrada course at Snow Canyon Country Club was unveiled in the mid 1990s. It’s an exciting layout that weaves around a desert landscape with fairways skirting black lava beds and rugged arroyos.
Most of the fairways wind through a residential development and water hazards come into play at several holes, but the signature feature of the course is the black lava flow known as “The Devil’s Triangle” from the 15th to the 17th.
Other noteworthy holes include the 410-yard downhill 2nd, which plays to a peninsula green; the 613-yard 9th, where desert scrub flanks either side of the fairway; and the 229-yard 14th, requiring a forced carry over a sea of sagebrush to reach the green.
The club is private, but guests of the Inn at Entrada have playing privileges, allowing golfers to stay and play if they book a package at a first class facility featuring beautifully appointed villas, indoor and outdoor pools as well as tennis, basketball and beach volleyball courts.
