Not a hiker? How about enjoying some scenic wonders from the green instead? With breathtaking views of Southern Utah’s famous red rock formations including the majestic peaks of Zion National Park on the horizon, Coral Canyon is a golfer’s dream and an oasis in the desert. 

Coral Canyon Golf Club is all about the colors. You will be amazed at how green the fairways are in this rustic desert setting. Here, sunshine and blue skies underscore vibrant greens and sparkling lakes providing a golfer’s paradise. The fairways are wide and nicely forgiving – so go ahead, flex your muscles and “let the big dog eat.”

The most common refrain from golfers playing Coral Canyon is “this is a fun golf course!” Golf, fun? Hmmm, now there’s an idea. If we haven’t painted an adequate picture for you yet, believe us when we say, this is an incredible layout. 

Suitable for golfers of all abilities, Coral Canyon is a 7,029-yard, par-72 layout with a seriously epic backdrop. Located in what many call “Color Country” near St. George, Utah’s golfing capitol, Coral Canyon offers a beautiful challenge and is a “must-play” in this epic golf destination.

Coral Canyon Director of Golf Mark Whetzel says, “Golfers love playing our Par 3, 6th hole. The hole features an island green, surrounded by red rock and sand. The tee shot is intimidating but beautiful and will reward you with a birdie – with a good swing. The key to this hole is to just get it on the putting surface. Take a half club more to ensure clearing the red rock cliff. Short is not an option, but long will put you on the back of the green or at worst in a back bunker. This is just one of the many spectacular holes at Coral Canyon.”

Designed by renowned golf course architect Keith Foster, Coral Canyon is a public course that provides the rare opportunity of enjoying a private club feel. Enjoy a luxurious tee time at the gateway of the world’s most incredible wonders. It’s the best way to see nature – without so much as getting your shoes dirty.
