The Sunnybrow Heights Hotel can be found in the beautiful Pine Creek lowlands of South Central Utah, USA.
Built 10 years after the nearby Cache Valley earthquake of 1962, it is overlooked by the surrounding snow capped Tushar Mountains of which the stunning Delano Peak stands tallest at over 12,000 feet. The hotels main attraction is the specially commissioned 18 hole golf course moulded into the surrounding landscape and with holes including Devils Pass, Heavens Gap & Sam's Plateau to name but three it's not difficult to understand why it's a popular destination for those wanting a little “extra” something with their round.
Sunnybrow's 6900 yard, par 72 trail has medium soft fairways coupled with medium speed greens. There are many risk, reward opportunities and several holes have more than one path from tee to pin. Add to that the sand traps, natural hazards and elevation changes and you have a demanding track to challenge even the seasoned pro.
- Use of elevation helps create some nice views of the golf course, coming down 7 was nice seeing clubhouse
- Greens play very fair and aren't unrealistic
- Course plays well and runs smooth
- The elevation changes need smoothing
- To many blind tee shots over doglegs
- fairways narrow and bushes to close lining the hole on a few holes
- Bunkers lack depth and need blending
- To many irons of the tee

Canuck's Course Critiques
Pretty Views, But Rough Around the Edges
-A very unique fantasy design with some hole design ideas I have never seen before.
- Very nice contouring around the course..really gives it a true "alpine" feel.
-Clubhouse and Hotel area was top notch.
-Very narrow fairways.
-Bunkering and blending of bunkers and rough was inconsistent and a bit awkward looking.
- Some extreme elevation changes take away from the experience. I caught myself wondering, how could anyone even attempt to play this course in real life?
Verdict- This course is like a high school prom queen...attractive, but very awkward. Worth a play if you are looking for something a bit different! Average 3/5
