If this Golf Digest list doesn’t convince you that Park City is the mecca for golf in the state of Utah, then the architects themselves should be enough to draw the attention of any golf obsessionist, or weekend warrior. Names like Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Pete Dye, and Mark O’Meara are responsible for all five course designs around Park City in Golf Digest’s top 10 list.
If you are looking for more affordable options, but still wanting to find yourself putting to the backdrop of breathtaking mountain panoramas, meander down Parley’s Canyon and choose between the two courses at Mountain Dell. Or, drive 30 minutes south to Midway where three courses sit at the base of the towering Mount Timpanogos.
Did we mention mountain golf is played at altitude? Come inflate your ego a little. Many of our golf courses average around 7,000 feet above sea level or even higher. For most of us, that’s a one to two club difference! Watch your ball soar into the distance as the grandeur of the peaks attempts to steal your breath away.
Whether you want to hit the links at the bustling Park City Golf Club or take advantage of our golf summer package that gets you tee times at Promontory Club’s Pete Dye Canyon Course, there are options for you and your family or friends. It’s no wonder Park City has been revered as a burgeoning mountain golf destination
If it’s memorable golf you’re looking for, come stay at The Chateaux Deer Valley in Park City this summer and get into the swing of things.
