A good sport helps you relax while still providing you with a timely jolt of adrenaline. You can try BASE jumping or white-water rafting, but why not get your thrills from a sport that’s a little more laid back? Golf is a sport that is much more than a good walk spoiled – it provides exercise for the body while still stimulating the mind. This is a sport of passion, and one that can turn from a hobby to a lifestyle.

If you’ve ever desired a few moments on the links, you might want to visit the Clarion Suites St. George Golf Courses. These are the finest courses in all of Utah, courses that will not only help you play better but bring you back to the essence of the game. These are the courses on which you can enjoy a tranquil beauty while improving your long and short game.
Nature and Golf
While golf certainly provides a chance to compete, it also provides you with a chance to enjoy nature. When you hit the links, you’ll be in the midst of tranquil surroundings. Before you know it, you’ll be improving your body with each swing. You’ll stretch and bend without realizing what’s going on, putting muscles to use that might otherwise stay dormant. You’ll get your body back to the way nature intended it to function.
Of course, that time in nature can heal more than just your body. Regulars often feel like a few hours on the course can make them feel like they’ve taken a whole weekend off. There’s something about immersing yourself in the game that takes you away from real life and lets you focus on what’s going on in front of you. A great golf course removes you from the hustle and bustle and places your mind squarely where it belongs – on the game.
Of course, it’s not all about relaxation. Golf is a sport about self-improvement and, yes, competition. This is a game that makes you want to get better to beat not only your opponents, but to prove something to yourself. This is a game where you make goals to beat and then shatter them after spending years of practice. This is a sport that features competition at its highest levels, but that never shies away from offering a new challenge even for amateurs.
Golf is more than just a sport. It’s therapy, competition, and socialization all at once. You can hit the links, then come back to relax with a glass of your favorite beverage while you talk about the day’s game. At St. George, you can embrace the game of golf the way it was meant to be played.
