Sunbrook features three distinct nines. The Pointe nine meanders through the foothills of the west side of St. George, offering tremendous views of the surrounding landscape. The Wood Bridge nine features two of the most recognizable golf holes in southern Utah. The 4th hole is a par 3 with an elevated tee shot to an island green.
