Owner description: Southgate is a great course for those looking for an enjoyable round of golf as opposed to a brutal test of your skills. Southgate also features a game improvement center with award-winning PGA professionals and instruction programs.A great walking course, the front nine requires accuracy to sucessfully negotiate the waterways. Eight out of the nine holes on the front nine feature either a lake or the Santa Clara River as scenic challenges to par. The back 9, slightly longer than the front nine, adds the element of risk and reward which allows the player to recover shots lost on the front nine. Southgate Golf Club is a par-70 layout which is enjoyable for all levels of ability.

“Very enjoyable round”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

This is a municipal style course and it plays well. For the price, it's very nice ($25 on EZlinks.com). It helps to play with someone who has been there before because there are several holes that are pretty blind off the tee. We found the greens true and the fairways in good condition.

“Nice, Short Course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is a very nice course that will make you feel like a big hitter. Even though the yardage is short, the holes are tricky enough to make it a challenge. Most of the par 5's are reachable in 2, and if you've never had an eagle in your life, play the whites as you'll get two chances on 17 and 18.

“A fun day of golf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We visited St. George and were staying at a timeshare that was right off the 1st fairway. We walked to the clubhouse, got a cart and we were off. The front 9 is flat, built around the Virgin River and a few little lakes and requires relatively accurate shots. The back 9 is in the hills between houses and has great views.

I played with a low skilled partner and so we teed off from the white tees. What a great time I had. A few of the par 4s are short enough to reach, or at least come close and number 8 entices with a tee shot over a lake to the green. If you're capable, I'd say go for it.

On the back 9 there is a 374 yard par 5 (from the whites), a great opportunity for a shot at an eagle, although a twinge of guilt would accompany it.

The staff was very friendly, the price was right and the location, for me, was perfect.

“A nice challenge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

This is one of the most affordable, and also one of the least challenging, courses in the area. It's not too long and the hazards aren't terribly daunting. The view is beautiful, however, and it's a fun course to play.
