Green Spring Golf Course in Washington UtahThere is such a thing as a real oasis in the desert.  And, you’re about to golf the oasis.

Green Spring sits in a natural oasis of springs that surfaced in the red desert foothills at the base of 10,000 foot Pine Mountain. This stunning course utilizes the natural springs, hills, gorges, and ravines to create an entertaining and challenging test for golfers. You’ll marvel at the breathtaking shots over deep canyons, and thrill as your ball soars into a beautiful horizon from the elevated tees.

Green Spring Golf Course opened to excellent reviews in 1989, including being named as one of Golf Digest’s top five new golf courses in the country. Since that time, Green Spring has continued to earn high rankings and in 2002, it was given a four-star rating in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play.”

Golfers on this championship course will enjoy several scenic features at close range. The ten-thousand foot Pine Valley Mountain towers in Green Spring’s foreground and is typically laced with snow until late spring. From the reflection of early morning’s changing lights, to cloudscapes snagged on her jagged peaks, Pine Valley offers spectacular sky scenes throughout the day. Players can absorb the height of Pine Valley’s daily drama from hole number five which hits directly toward the mountain.

Another environmental feature found at Green Spring provided the inspiration for the course’s name. A natural spring bubbles up between holes fifteen and sixteen and creates ponds on holes ten, eleven, and fifteen. When the warm water coming up from the naturally heated spring meets up with a winter morning’s cool air, a maze of mists provide the course with an extra layer of beauty and golfers with an extra layer of challenge.

This course, designed by golf architect Gene Bates, offers what Green Springs PGA Pro Nick Neeley describes as some of the toughest stretches of holes in the country. Green Spring is 18 Green Spring Golf Course Water Hazzardholes, par 72 course, says Neeley, “requires players to use every club in the bag.”

Overall, this is a Great course in a beautiful setting. The two holes that are played over the big gorge are challenging, especially the second one. Bring a lot of extra balls, if you are not on target you will need them. Plenty of wildlife, and diversity to the course. Takes you from the desert, to the wetlands, to the red rock cliffs.

    This is just an alright golf course. Not bad, but not top southern Utah material. It’s a little short, but still has its share of trouble spots and certainly offers enough of a challenge. Unfortunately, this course has a reputation for slow play. Perhaps it’s because too many people try to play from the longer tees when they shouldn’t. Or it may be that I’ve never seen a marshall here to help speed up the slow golfers.

    Its biggest asset is the price for an 18-hole round, which, by the standards for this area, is relatively inexpensive. Give this course a try, if for no other reason but to warm up to some of the other more expensive courses in the area. But, don’t have an appointment post your golf time – you’ll miss it.

    For the value this is one of the best in St. George. Just like the top courses: Entrada, Sunbrook, Valderra, this course offers amazing views. Deep red-rock canyon, Pine Valley Mountain and the pink spires from Red Cliffs State Park. Green Spring’s hole number 6 is breathtaking. Great staple course in Southern Utah.

    Greatest golf course in southern Utah. Head Pro and staff very courteous and professional. Green fees very reasonable especially considering the quality of the course.

    Usually has a good twilight rate and is one of the more challenging courses in the area, less of a resort course than Sand Hollow or Coral Canyon.

    Green spring is a nice course, beautiful vista’s and a good value. great public course not much of a club house, but you love the scenic course.The greens are quick and roll true. I would recommend for all levels of play. Just wish it was in a little better shape, but that may be due to my round was in November.

    This is a nice course worth playing, but it’s not in the top tier for the area. Sometimes the rates are pretty good so call and see what they are before you go.
