Utah’s newest golf course is certainly one of its most interesting! I just checked out the 19 hole (yes, 19) Black Desert Golf Resort, designed by Tom Weiskopf. It’s a 9-iron away from Entrada at Snow Canyon, in Ivins, Utah. Ivins is a suburb of St. George, Utah. The “cool” holes at Entrada are the few holes that are in the lava, which covers quite a bit of the area. Well most if not all of the holes at Black Desert are cool then, since they all are in lava.

HOG World Tour Visits Forest Dunes Weiskopf Course

Forest Dunes is a golf resort in northern Michigan you should definitely put on your golf bucket list. There are four courses on the property, if you count The Loop, which is a reversible course by Tom Doak. Yesterday morning I had the thill of taking on the Forest Dunes Weiskopf course and oh what a beauty she is. I would have made a blog post about this Tour stop sooner, but the resort is quite remote and there’s not much connectivity there. Plus, I spent most of my time there golfing, eating, and sleeping in between.

I can’t quite recall if I’ve played a Weiskopf course before this one, but I must take my HOG hat off and salute Tom for such a fantastic design. Tired and a bit jet lagged I still managed it around in 80 without losing a ball, and there are massive forest areas everywhere one can do that.

The greens were spectacular and terrifyingly fast. It took quite a bit of skill, patience and green reading to navigate them.

I’ll be posting a full review of the Forest Dunes Weiskopf course here in the near future. I’m still in northern Michigan on a golf press trip which will last another five days or so which isn’t giving me much time to write or process images. Stay tuned. Until then enjoy some Forest Dunes photos.
