I vividly remember the first time I drove through Salt Lake City.  I was on my way to see my sister in Denver.  While the traffic was gridlock on the way through the valley, the vistas of the Wasatch Mountains were otherworldly.  Truth be told, I didn’t mind sitting in traffic.That was my first ...

Davis Park Golf Course is one of the most underrated tracks in the SLC area.  That’s what the locals say at least, and I couldn’t agree more.While there’s nothing fancy about this facility, the layout is top-notch.  No surprises, but you’re asked to hit a variety of shots to precise targets. The ...

Soldier Hollow Golf Course

The Gold and Silver Courses at Soldier Hollow in the town of Midway are unbelievable.  That’s the consensus amongst our readers and I couldn’t agree more. As part of Wasatch Mountain State Park, the views here are yet again, to die for (seems to be a theme in SLC).  If you get a chance to play ...

Nicklaus Painted Valley Course at Promontory

I’ve been fortunate to play the Nicklaus Painted Valley Course.  To this day, it’s my favorite course in the entire state. In true Nicklaus fashion, the features are big and there’s a premium on good ball striking. With that being said, there are opportunities to score.You’ll want to take a cart ...

Dye Canyon Course at Promontory

Ask anyone in the SLC area what the most challenging course is, and they’ll likely say the Dye Canyon Course at Promontory. Elevation changes and holes that run across plateaus and through canyons present a challenge for even the best players.  Truly a shot maker’s design, you’d best pick the ...
