When Patrick Manning moved to Utah in 2004 while developing Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club, he was naturally impressed with the breathtaking beauty of the state’s St. George region. But he also recognized a need for a ‘there’ there, too. “With 5-6 million annual visitors to the area visiting the national parks, there wasn’t that spot you come to congregate in, that place of community with shops and restaurants,” he said. “And there certainly was not a destination resort in the area.” Now he’s making sure that’s no longer the case.
How fitting was it that Carlota Ciganda of Spain played a key role in Europe narrowly retaining the Solheim Cup this past September? Her clutch play in her home country was on full display, as was the beauty of Finca Cortesin, the host course designed by American Cabell Robinson at one of the continent’s finest resorts.

Rio Verde Country Club’s motto is “Living the Life We Imagined,” and if you’re looking for a community that boasts all the amenities you want for an active lifestyle, along with stellar views and a welcoming membership, Rio Verde might be right for you. Notwithstanding all the changes at Rio Verde over the past two decades — golf course renovations, a recent $3.75-million clubhouse overhaul, new fitness facilities, and several new members — that idyllic lifestyle remains the same.
A pioneer in the California Chardonnay movement, Randy Ullom is entering his 31st harvest spearheading the winemaking efforts at Kendall-Jackson, part of Jackson Family Wines, which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year. Another reason to celebrate in 2022 was Ullom being honored as the “American Wine Legend” by Wine Enthusiast’s 23rd Annual Wine Star Awards. Why? Primarily because of his signature Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay, the No. 1-selling Chardonnay in America for the past 31 years.
