Featuring wonderful links-like topography within a spectacular setting, the 27-hole Sand Hollow resort facility – with its fabulous 18-hole Championship course complemented by a delightful 9-hole Links layout – was constructed entirely out of native red sand by architect John Fought.
The Championship layout extends to almost 7,300 yards, with golfers afforded amazing views of the surrounding landscape from the red rock outcrops that proliferate the front nine. Pronounced elevation changes across a dramatic ridge line dominate proceedings on the back nine, prompting immediate repeat play requests from many of the players who tee it up here for the first time.
Visiting golfers should note that the use of a cart is compulsory on the Championship course.
Head Professional Adam Jasperson kindly provided us with the following comments:
“Our scorecard is rated by the USGA and shows that hole 6 is the most difficult but, in my opinion, hole 18 is the toughest for a few reasons. It’s typically the last hole of the day and it can be after a long four-hour grind that you address your final tee shot at this uphill par four. The fairway is spotted with bunkers at 230-260 yards and 250-280 yards, located at the landing areas for an array of players. The green is protected by another four bunkers and the putting surface isn’t visible from the fairway so this hole will test both your physical and mental ability.
Hole 15 is without a doubt our signature hole, known as “Devil’s Throat”. It features no fewer than eleven tee boxes, allowing shots of between 160 yards and 245 yards downhill to the two-tier green. The right side of the green is protected with knee-high grasses and bunkers whilst a cliff skirts the left side and has been known to consume errant tee shots with ease. Coming so late in the round, a big number taken at this dangerous hole will ruin a good medal score or swing a tight match play game in favour of your opponent.”
