Golf Digest has specifically pointed out Sunbrook as the only golf club in southern Utah to feature 27 championship holes. Each nine has its own unique personality and challenges.
The Point Nine
The first four holes on this nine are fairly run-of-the-mill. However, on the number five hole things get tricky. It is a short par-four hole that borders a desert cliff; if your shot hangs too far to the left, it’ll end up 100 feet down on the second hole.
The Woodbridge Nine
You’ll also meet your match on the number five hole on this nine. The Sunbrook website puts it best: “Golfers must carry a lake featuring a gorgeous country-style wooden bridge. This is one hole so beautiful you won’t mind having to record a bogey on your scorecard.”
The Black Rock Nine
Keep an eye out for the challenging and unique par-four seventh hole. You must carry a treacherous landscape of lava rock as well as a small lake to the right of the green.
Apart from boasting a majestic golf course, The Ledges offers a wide array of luxurious vacation rentals, as well as hosting weddings and other events. But you’re here for the golf.
