Golfing is in full swing!

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Last weekend the weather cooperated with us as we were able to complete the golf course, which opened for guests on Saturday.  By the afternoon we had quite a few groups of children, families, and adults playing 18 holes.  Our course has it all – a creek, bridges, inclines, a waterfall, and lots of twists and turns.  You’ll also see both smiles and serious faces.

The girls are cousins and here on a kick-off to summer vacation.  Part of a larger group playing, they kept their own pace, enjoying the game, yet were still competitive with the rest of the group.  The young man crouched on the green was serious about his game.  Concentrating on the integrity of his score, he was double checking his numbers by adding with his fingers, all to make sure that he was the winner in his group of three.

Come and tee off with us this summer – membership not required!  It’s a great way to end a day after hiking in Zion National Park, an ATV ride, or canyoneering.

Summer Adventures Begin at Zion Ponderosa!

It’s Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial kickoff to summer vacation, and things are in full-swing at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort.  Early arrivals for this sold-out weekend include a KIPP – AMP (Knowledge is Power – Always Mentally Prepared) school group from Brooklyn, New York and some families from California and Florida.

Although Ziplining and Paintball games were the favorite activities yesterday, everything was going on this afternoon, from the Bungee Trampoline to the ATV rides to the Zip Line.  Giovanna, a mighty 5 year old was the star of the Zip Line as she pushed her way through the line to ride the line without fear.  Her mother, camera in hand and smile on her face, watched and laughed as her daughter zoomed down the line, dismounted with help, and announced that she was ready to go again.

This weekend is full of excitement with the opening of the much awaited 18 hole miniature golf course, the resort’s on-site gourmet patio dining at the Blue Belly Restaurant, and the Night Owl Cafe, which will serve burgers and beer until 10 pm.

With over 500 guests staying at the Zion Ponderosa each night, the fact that the weather is forecasted to be sunny, clear, and in the 70′s, will make it for a memorable Memorial Day weekend!
