Plans Unveiled For New Southern Utah Destination Golf Resort

LEHI, Utah, Aug. 29, 2006 … Vowing to provide an unparalleled resort experience for its resort guests and residents, amidst breathtaking red rock mountain views, the visionaries behind Hurricane-based Sand Hollow Resort today unveiled plans for Southern Utah’s newest destination golf resort.

Located 15 minutes from St. George in the state’s southwestern region, one of the country’s fastest growing second-home markets, Sand Hollow Resort will feature more than 1,700 private residences, vacation villas, 27 holes of golf at Sand Hollow Golf Club, spa and fitness center, pools and water features. A water park, spanning 15 acres, will be created around the natural landscape of Sand Hollow Resort and will include a modified lazy river, stair-stepping through a series of pools stretching from the top of the park, through the Villas, and to the resort entrance. Groundbreaking for the project is scheduled to take place later this year.

The resort was introduced at a news conference held at Thanksgiving Point Golf Club, site of the Nokia Champions Challenge, hosted by Johnny Miller, a two-day golf tournament featuring prominent PGA and LPGA Tour players, including Mike Weir and Annika Sorenstam. Sand Hollow Golf Club will be a “sister course” to highly acclaimed Thanksgiving Point, as both golf courses will managed by Vanguard Golf Management Group.

“Today is a significant stepping stone in Sand Hollow Resort’s shift from dream to reality,” said Thomas R. Seneca, president of Sand Hollow Resort and one of the project visionaries. “We are genuinely excited about what we’re going to bring to the Southern Utah region, and invite people to come join us in what will be a wonderful resort experience.”

The two golf courses will be designed by John Fought, a noted architect with a number of award-winning layouts to his resume. Fought, a collegiate golf star at Brigham Young University, will design 27 holes for Sand Hollow Golf Club – the Championship Course, an 18-hole layout, and a separate nine-hole walking course. The layouts will incorporate ridgeline, canyon and elevation variations to create a challenging, yet memorable, golf experience.

The resort sits in close proximity to Sand Hollow State Park and Zion National Park. Whether hiking through Zion, jet skiing on the reservoir, or riding ATV’s across incredible sand dunes, Sand Hollow Resort is sure to deliver unprecedented recreational freedom.

Access to Sand Hollow Resort is via direct flights to St. George from Los Angeles or Salt Lake City, or a 90-minute drive from McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.
