Wondering about a little golf while staying at Zion National Park. Well Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort has just announced the opening of a new and unique miniature golf course for summer 2010. See more info. here.
This miniature golf course will feature faux rock formations of a Zion National Park style slot canyon and a Bryce Canyon National Park style hoodoo. Hoodoos are the unique rock formations that fill Bryce Canyon National Park and slot canyons are the deep and narrow canyons carved by flash floods into the soft sandstone of the Zion National Park region.
These two rock formations will highlight the miniature golf course which will also offer two main water features. Each water feature will have a pond at the north end of the course and connected by a small stream that flows to a pond on the southern end of the course. Small bridges will cross the stream features at various points in the 18 hole miniature golf course.
The beautifully landscaped miniature golf course will play through the center island of the area just north of the main lodge and between the Cabin Suites on the west and east. The golf course will be open for much of the day, and even into the evening during summer months.
As with all Zion Ponderosa activities, the course is open to all visitors even if they are not staying at the resort. Golf enthusiasts will relish the opportunity to practice their putting game and to keep some friendly competition going amongst friends and family. This is the type of thing that brings young and old together for an activity that really can be enjoyed together by people of all ages (1 to 100).
