St. George Golf Club is the golf course formally known as Bloomington Hills Golf Course.  The original course owners had a hard time keeping up with the costs of golf course maintenance.  Most likely they used the golf course, which opened in 1976, as a way to sell home building lots in the then new St. George neighborhood of Bloomington Hills.  After struggling for a while, a deal was reached with the City of St. George, who formally took over the golf course in the late 1990’s.

The move was a winner for the city, the surrounding homeowners, and golfers.  St. George City has proven it knows how to economically take care of golf courses.  The city has done more than just act as a caretaker for the former Bloomington Hills Golf Course.  The St. George Golf Club has literally blossomed in the hands of expert city planners who did an amazing job utilizing the surrounding Ft. Pierce Wash terrain.   The congruency that has developed between man made course and nature is due to the excellent integration of the original, natural desert terrain, which act as informal bunkers.

Many a golfer has mentioned that St. George Golf Club reminds them of the best golf courses in Scottsdale, Arizona that are also characterized by fairways cut right into the natural desert terrain.  St. George Golf Club is also known for having great putting greens which is consistent with a lot of older golf courses.

If you like a long course, you’ll love St. George Golf Course.  This is the Longest course in Utah with 7,217 yards of golf for a par of 73.  So grip it and rip it from the tee box.  We dare you to try and overshot the greens. The course rating is 73.7 with a slope rating of 126.

    I like playing this course when I’m in the mood to pull out my longest driver and try to crush the ball. Both nines are relatively tight, but there’s only water on two holes on the front and four on the back. Fairway and greenside bunkers are very strategically located on all eighteen holes, so accuracy is a premium here.

    This is one of the older courses in St. George but still in good condition. This course is run the city of St. George who run 3 or 4 courses and do it very well. There is nothing spectacular about this course – a basic good course and great value. Like a lot of Southern Utah courses, it has great views. It’s tough to walk because of the very steep hill to get the holes.

    It was ok, but not exciting – nothing special. We tried this as our first course to play in St. George.

    Greens were fast. Need to keep the ball in the fairway. You will pay a price in the deep rough.
    Because of the time of year the course is not green around the fairways. Just have to deal with it.
