Oquirrh Hills Golf Course

  4 Reviews

We played from the Black tees measuring 6,581 yards; slope is 70.3/124.

The front nine of the course is the old muni in this town. Lots of trees, small overgrown greens, wide fairways. Greens were hard the day we played, tough to hold an approach shot. Typical city muni course.

The back nine is newer and is built immediately east of the front nine through a gully that originates in what is called Middle Canyon in the Oquirrh Mountains. It is wide open with few mature trees and it surprisingly plays shorter than the front nine. There are two signature holes on this nine. #13 is played over water to a green that is backed by a rock wall/dam feature. #14 tee box is on top of the rock wall/dam (see pictures) and provides a stunning view of the Tooele Valley looking north to the Great Salt Lake.

Pace of play was great through 12 holes. Then we ran into a local foursome of "members" with both personal and course golf carts. Speed of play was not a question for them. They took their time, gave dirty looks, and caused the last six holes to be played over two hours. Frustrating but expected in a rural town muni.

This course is popular with locals as it is a relatively easy course compared to others in the vicinity. Course is maintained decently. A renovation is needed on the front nine greens.

He would play this course again.

Course is ok, the staff especially the golf pro are the most unprofessional egotistical golf staff I have ever encountered. Save your money go elsewhere

The review is two fold. First off I have called for lessons about a half a dozen times and the gentlemen there that offers lessons does NOT return phone calls. I have left messages at the front desk and on his cell phone. Finally got someone else to give me a lesson from the local paper. During my lesson the grass was great it wasn't very pitted and was well taken care of. We spent all our time on the driving range and putting range. Today I went back to practice my new love for golfing on the driving range and I think the rain softened the grass because it was pretty beat up. Then again maybe I was just being more sentsative based on the fact I didn't have any instruction this time. The woman at the counter was extremely helpful and pleasent and she went and found my husband clubs to pratice with so he didn't just have to stand there and wait for me. It was only $4.00 for a small bucket of balls (72) and there was no other charge to use the driving range. Inexpensive and fun Saturday mornings!
