Black Desert Resort Golf Course

Championship Golf Among Lava Fields

Emerging at the convergence of St. George, Ivins and Santa Clara, is the newest golf course in Greater Zion … Black Desert Resort Golf Course. As construction continues on the surrounding resort and amenities, tee times are available now.

The 19-hole, 7,200-yard golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf, a legendary pro golfer and course architect, was chosen for his iconic work among Hawaii’s lava fields. The seamless integration with the land, accessibility, and fun is at the core of all that Black Desert Resort stands for. The Black Desert Resort Golf Course entices expert and novice golfers alike. Designed to make playability a priority, golf here is all about fun for everyone with fair greens, forgiving fairways, and 70- to 100-yard landing areas for beginners, yet plenty of risk and reward elements for challenging the most die-hard golfers at the back tees. In addition to the 19-hole Weiskopf-designed golf course, guests of Black Desert will enjoy a 36-hole illuminated putting course for playing on day or night, as well as a unique driving range named The YardTM.

Golf in the Midst of Luxury Without Pretense

The 19th Hole is the perfect spot for folks who’d rather kick back and relax than hone their game. This amphitheater-style gathering spot will boast stunning lakeside views that will make you never want to leave. 

Surrounded by the storied landscape of Greater Zion from towering cliffs, jet-black lava beds, and a breathtaking 600+ acre backdrop, Black Desert Resort is soon to be the premier destination in Southern Utah. Slated to be the largest resort in all of Utah, this marvel is at the heart of three significant geographical convergences: the Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin, and the Mojave Desert. This leads to some of the most breathtaking views and immersive experiences due to natural vegetation, incredible hikes, and marvelous adventures. It is also why more state parks surround the resort and Southern Utah than anywhere else in the nation.

It will be an all-season resort surrounded by Zion National Park wilderness areas and Snow Canyon State Park, among the many attractions. Accessible yet off the beaten path, Black Desert Resort will offer its guests world-class accommodations and service in an inclusive setting, overlooking the beautiful display of copper rocks and a sea of black lava.
