There are a number of surprise golf destinations, great for your golf group, which offer outstanding golf and many choices for play but have yet to be popularized by TV coverage and pro tour events.
One such surprise destination is Utah, where there are over 100 golf courses. Two prime destinations for vacation golf are in Park City where there are five courses and St. George with 10 courses.
Park City has a great summer golf season with mild temperatures and offering stunning course vistas. All locations have 18 or more holes of play, are par 72 and have distances ranging from 6,322 yards to 7,390 yards.
St. George is best known for its winter golf, though many courses offer an enjoyable challenge at all times of the year. The vistas include the red hued canyon walls and overviews of the region's National Parks. Most courses offer 18 holes, a par range from 70 to 72 and most are less than 7,000 yards.
