Southern Utah has a new gem for the golfing community, and it does not disappoint. Located just outside the city of Hurricane, UT, this course provides a breath of fresh air for avid golfers in Southern Utah. A brand new golf course is always a welcomed sight, but Copper Rock brings not only something new but something worthwhile. As challenging as it is beautiful, this golf course stretches through desert landscapes and rugged mountains. It provides golfers with great views to soak in while they play and also great opportunities to hit an array of different types of golf shots.
Copper Rock Golf Course is a 6,823-yard course (Par 72) designed by local golf architect, Dale Beddo. The course merges several different course styles into its design. It has a few flatter holes, that play almost links-style with the rolling hills and bold bunkers that line the fairways before heading into several holes that bring elevation and water into the mix. This course design will visually leave you in awe and simultaneously test your golf game. The greens have a healthy mix of large and small sizes, adding in plenty of hills and slopes to give you some interesting reads as you play.
Stay and Play
Copper Rock Golf Course was designed to be more than just a golf course, it’s a vacation-worthy destination for friends and families to enjoy. With plans for a future clubhouse, this course will soon be able to be enjoyed by golfers and non-golfers alike. At Freedom Village, our vacation homes are just a short 20-minute drive to the course. This makes it an easy and well worth it trip for locals and travelers alike. Another perk is Copper Rock’s proximity to Zion National Park, which is less than 30 minutes away and a mere 20 minutes away from Sand Hollow Reservoir and Resort. This property can check every box for your family getaway or for your friends’ annual golf trip.
Risk vs. Reward
Golfers have called this course “tough, but fair”. After playing it myself, I can see exactly what they mean. There are plenty of shots out there that are the definition of risk versus reward. Whether it is laying up shy of some water on a short par 4, or a big par 5 that stretches downhill offering your ball a considerable amount of roll if located correctly off the tee. Copper Rock has plenty of blind shots into the green or off the tee, which requires accuracy and tough decision making at times. This course is really what golf is all about, a challenge that is as satisfying as it is maddening.
Yes, this course gives and takes away all at the same time and offers players, no matter their skill level, a chance at greatness or defeat. Either way, Copper Rock Golf Course is here to stay in Southern Utah and grants everyone who plays here a chance to enjoy a pure, quality golf experience.
