Any golf courses to recommend for Salt Lake City?
Posted by 0jersey on 8/17 at 5:21 pm
I'm thinking of going there for Labor Day weekend and want to play a nice course. I'm used to nice courses in Scottsdale. Price doesn't matter.

Any advice?

Salt Lake doesn't have too many good courses, but there are a ton within 30 minutes.

Soldier Hollow in Midway is nice. About 30 minutes from SLC.

If you drive to Park City, they have Promontory, a course designed by Pete Dye. Mountain Dell course on the way to Park City is also fairly nice.

Have also heard good things about Eaglewood, which is in North SLC.

My inlaws live there so I have played a lot of golf and there.

Try the Mountain course at Wasatch State Park and The Homestead (both in Midway) as well as Soldier Hollow (more of a links design). You will have a nice mountain drive, but worth it.

So I am thinking we may stay in park city. Is the park city golf course worth playing? How far are these other courses you mentioned and roughly how much are they?

My girlfriend may ride with me, so a scenic course would be better. Thanks for the tips!

As a side note I may stay at hotel park city. Any recs for hotels?

Park City Golf? Meh.

Stay at The Canyons. Or stay at The Marriott Park City. Both have evening outdoor entertainment.

If you have OT bucks and belong to an elite country club, have your pro call the pro at Promontory and set you up a tee time. AWESOME courses.

The one's I recommended are behind Park City on the other side of the mountain at Midway. At the Wasatch Mountain course, the turn at the top of the mountain offers you an opportunity to take in incredible views AND try to hit a 400+ yard drive.

If you like awesome trout fishing, the Provo River runs through here and has ome of the finest fishing in North America. It runs right throgh the middle of my inlaws ranch and is a short 200 yard walk behind the house to some sweet honey holes.

Sounds like I need to try the mountain course.

I have to play public courses. I'll check out those hotels. Thanks!

Do you think there are places that could do a guided fishing trip and provide all equipment?

Never needed a guide myself. The land has been in the family for over 120 years and my FIL knows right where to go.

However, for the novice and/or uninformed, there are numerous guide serices that provide everything. Just google, like with anything.
