For the BYU at Entrada Classic, the college women will play the course at 6,154 yards, par 72.

Managed by Troon Golf, Entrada’s course offers a challenging round of golf that weaves through southern Utah’s majestic scenic beauty against a backdrop of red sandstone cliffs, rolling dunes and black lava beds.
