Anyone who says this course is acceptable in any way simply has never played a decent track.
Where to start? The course itself is jammed into an area the is not large enough to fit 18 holes. 2, 9 and 16 are gimmics. Much of the front 9 has a number of holes running back and forth so you always worried that the hacks who play this dog track might be hitting you with their balls. If they're not hitting your head they're hitting your ball. The greens are slow and poorly maintained.
The driving range is pitiful. I once tried to give a lesson there. NEVER AGAIN! The tee is elevated so you have no idea of your ball's true tragectory. They make you hit of mats. How can anyone learn to hit a golf ball or practice striking irons if you can't see your divot. To hit a driver (which is not allowed) you have to tee it on one of those rubber tee things so basically they feel they know how high to tee your ball. When I incredulously asked the punk of a pro about the mats and if I could hit some balls of the turf, he said, "We've always had mats," as if that made it OK.
I live right next to this course and play it no more than once a year and every time I play it, I hate every minute of it. Every time I come of if, I vow I'll NEVER PLAY IT AGAIN! This time I mean it. If you like it, play it, but when you play a decent course, you'll see what I mean.
I have never known a decent player who likes this pit and most simply refuse to set foot on this cruel trick on an uninformed public.
Sorry, but after today's round (8 AM t-time), I would suggest calling for course conditions! Many t-box, fairways and greens in terrible shape. Divots, ball marks not repaired to the point that we wondered if maintenance is not routine at all on this course. This place is really taking a beating!
Today my thinking is that they should close this course for a month to let it recover. There are many courses that are played to death - but very few of them are in this condition. The integrity of the golfers also play a part. Fix your damn ball marks and divots!! What the hell, you morons born in barn??!!
I play golf 3-4 times a week so know my way around courses and I am proud to say I'm friends with a couple great pros in the valley that manage their courses well... This course....Horrible management. Father's Day tee time was 45 minutes late and had to wait for carts.. Instead of marshal, pro shop and cart guy doing their job they stood around not saying anything which made it more confusing for 10 golfers waiting for carts... Sorry guys this was poorly handled by management. Get your act together and I would recommend to others. As far as the course condition in June, It was decent.
It was a great course. The salt lake areas public courses have all been really nice so far. About 35-40 bucks for 18 holes and a ride. The views were rally nice and the greens were in pretty good shape for September. I'll play here again
Played today with my son, who is in college in the area. Although the season is coming to and end, and the greens were a bit raggedy, we had a great time. The course has a nice mix of holes, is wide open in some parts and butt clenchingly tight in others, and has great views of the greater SLC valley from its hillside location. We'd come again.
