The 7,300 yard, 72 par 18-hole Championship Course is a balance of link style golf in the Utah desert. Holes 12 through 15 back are cliff hanging golf at its finest, with dramatic elevation changes and breath taking views of Pine Valley Mountain. The signature par 3 15th hole might be the most visual intimidating holes in the area. A long iron or wood is needed to reach the pin 230 yards away. The undulating green is guarded with sand in front and back. Stay right, as anything to the left will plummet to its death a few hundred feet below. Take a moment after playing the hole to look back at the amazing rock formations.
Five Tees: 7315, 6893, 6462, 6060, 5306 yards

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
