We’ll depart by motorcoach to Southgate Golf Club that will be the location for all golf instruction during the week. Red Rock Golf Instruction at the Southgate Golf Club is one of the best practice facilities in the area operated by the City of St. George. It has an outdoor practice facility with natural grass teeing areas as well as all-weather artificial turf for year-round usage. There are two practice putting greens, a chipping/pitching green, greenside bunker, full-length practice range, and 18 holes designed for all skill levels. Most importantly, the staff are all PGA teaching professionals. After an overview by the golf pros, we’ll have two sessions of group instruction in small groups, walking from one station to another. During the first session, Group A will go to Station 1 and focus on irons and hybrids (75-175 yards); Group B will go to Station 2 to work on tee shots and fairway metals; Group C to will go to Station 3 for putting; and Group D will go to Station 4 and work on chipping. Switching, Group A will go to Station 4, chipping; Group B to Station 3, putting; Group C to Station 2, tee shots and fairway metals; Group D to Station 1, irons and hybrids (75-175 yards). At the end of our morning of instruction, we’ll transfer by motorcoach to lunch.
At a local restaurant, we’ll have a plated lunch with soft drinks, tea, coffee and water included.
We’ll put what we learned this morning into practice and play nine holes with a cart at Dixie Red Hills Golf Course, the first developed by the city of St. George in the 1960s. It is notable for the beautiful red rock setting and playability for different levels. The par 34 layout weaves around sandstone cliffs through cottonwoods, pines, and mesquite. Each hole is distinctive. The Group Leader will play with us.
At a local restaurant, enjoy a buffet offering fresh salads, soups, a variety of hot food choices, side dishes, bakery items, desserts, coffee, soda, tea and water.
Returning to the University Inn, we’ll gather in the lobby classroom for a presentation by a expert on local area history.
