Southgate Golf Club is a local favorite for St. George golfers for a reason. The staff is friendly, the course is always in great condition and the holes are not cookie-cutter holes.
The front nine has water that comes into play on 8 holes. Holes 5-8 are relatively new to the course. When the city put in the new Dixie Dr exit to I-15, about 2012 I think, Southgate had to move 4 holes across the road. These are perhaps three of the most difficult holes. Par 5 #9 crosses the Santa Clara River twice, # 1 handicap hole on the front.
The back nine has only two holes with water but lots of elevation change. Hole # 15 is an especially challenging uphill par 5 with a terraced green. Don't get above the hole here. Just sayin'. The back nine finishes with two par 5's. If you put your tee shot where you need to, par is not too difficult.
6 par 3's on the course make playing here fun. Par for this course is 71.
The greens are in great shape, some are difficult if the grounds grew woke up that day with a bad attitude.
Come play. Bring your short game.
And remember: fill your divots and repair your ball marks.
