There are many high profile bucket list courses in the world, the obvious big time ones like Augusta, Cypress, National Golf Links, Shinnecock or Marion and those are truly prized courses atop many golfer’s bucket lists. But for most of us, many of these courses are a pipe dream, and some nearly unattainable in our lifetimes. But….fortunately there are many epic courses that are accessible for us mortals!
Recently CNN.com and @CNNSport Instagram compiled a list of 19 Golf Courses You Must Play Before You Die, and a St. George, Utah Golf Course landed in the list!
Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club with its incredibly unique location in St. George, Utah is worthy of this title. Nestled at the foothills of the staggeringly beautiful Snow Canyon State Park, replete with towering red and white sandstone cliffs providing the backdrop for this fantastic golf experience. If the surrounding landscape doesn’t get your “wow” going then surely the closing holes aptly named “The Devil’s Cauldron” will grab your full attention.
Pictured here, is the beginning of a 3 hole stretch of golf holes completely surrounded by ancient lava rock. I mean completely surrounded, just grass and sharp, jagged lava rock! This closing crecendo of holes will make or break your round, and prove to be some of the most memorable golf holes anywhere in the world.
