Spectacular high desert scenery makes for enjoyable golf at Cherokee Springs Golf Course near Hatch, Utah. If you are a sea-level golfer, you might find yourself overestimating the wind force. At about 7,200 feet elevation, your golf game could become a study in physics as you figure out what it takes to hit into the wind. Great view from Hole #6 Tee. Here is where the course turns around and now it's all the way back into the wind. Look for the water hazard near the green.
