Scottsdale, Ariz. – Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce that Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club in St. George, Utah, will transition from a semi-private golf facility to a private club as of October 1, 2006. Located about two hours north of Las Vegas, Nevada, Entrada has recently been rated the #2 Best Course in Utah by the editors of Golf Digest.
Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club features a championship-level Johnny Miller designed golf course playing to a par 72 covering 7,280 yards. The terrain at Entrada covers 710 acres of beautiful southern Utah desert, and the golf course winds through large arroyos, lava beds and rolling dunes at the foot of the jagged Navajo and Kayenta sandstone cliffs marking the ancient history of this Native American landscape.
“Interest and demand for the Entrada experience is at an all time high,” stated Club General Manager Rob DeMore. “The transition to a private club makes Entrada at Snow Canyon St. George’s only private, gated country club and elevates the facility to one of the premier and most exclusive golf clubs in the West.”
In the heart of Southern Utah’s red rock country, Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club has made its mark with a unique blend of elegant homes and leisure activities centered around a world-class golf course. Entrada features the amenities and lifestyle that have earned accolades from members and visitors alike. The dramatic 22,000 square foot main clubhouse that opened for member use in May 2005 is the focal point of Club activities. The clubhouse includes a restaurant and lounge, large outdoor dining patio, a private dining room, and golf locker rooms. The lower level of the clubhouse includes a golf shop, banquet and meeting rooms, and a snack bar and cart storage area.
While public daily-fee play will cease as of October 1, guests staying at the Inn at Entrada will have access to the course. The Inn features two and three bedroom luxury villa-style accommodations overlooking the ninth fairway of Entrada and offers golf packages as well as nightly, weekly or monthly rentals.
