Sand Hollow Leavitt Group Open

Sand Hollow Resort hosted the three day long 5th Annual Sand Hollow Leavitt Group Open.

Last week, Sand Hollow Resort hosted the three day long 5th Annual Sand Hollow Leavitt Group Open. The tournament players teed off on September 21st and the final round was played on the 23rd. The Sand Hollow Open event has become one of the region’s most important golf tournaments and is played on a spectacular, award-winning Championship Golf Course found on the Sand Hollow Resort property.

Each year the talent at the tournament seems to climb featuring players from all over North America and throughout the world. The tournament has consistently featured up and coming professional golfers boasting an impressive pay-out of nearly $100,000. The caliber of play is undoubtedly reflective of the tournaments reputation and the potential payout.

To commence the 5th annual open tournament, Sand Hollow hosted the Governor’s Charity Cup. Utah Governor Gary Herbert, former Governor Mike Leavitt, and political, media, and business leaders from both Utah and Nevada participated in the event, playing on behalf of an array of charities. The Governor’s Charity Cup pits four teams of 12 (two teams from Utah, and two from Nevada) against each other in a Ryder Cup-style format. One hundred percent of the tournament proceeds are donated to the aforementioned charities.

The Sand Hollow Leavitt Group Open is generously supported by the Utah Sports Commission, The Leavitt Group, WCF Insurance, Gilbert Development, Zion Bank and over a dozen other companies. Sand Hollow proudly hosts the Governor’s Charity Cup and The Sand Hollow Open.
