The Park City Utah golf scene, and nearby Heber Valley officially joined the national golf boom leading up to and following the 2002 Winter Olympics. The highly publicized winter games brought a mass of attention to the once quiet in the summertime resort ski towns, located only 25 miles east of Salt Lake City International Airport. With Park City’s truly unbeatable location, combined with the worldwide exposure garnered from the Olympic games, its no wonder the biggest names in golf course architecture were called upon to build new layouts in Park City.
Legends of the game, like Jack Nicklaus at Red Ledges, Pete Dye and Nicklaus at Promotory, Tom Fazio at Glenwild, Rees Jones at Victory Ranch, and Gene Bates at Soldier Hollow and the new Canyons Resort! Each world-class architect were offered great pieces of land to let loose their imaginations, and stamp their creative golf signature designs on and propel Park City into a mountain golf mecca.
“The Park City area now boasts 15 superb golf courses, all within minutes of one of the finest and most popular mountain resort towns in the world. These fabulous new golf courses, private and public facilities alike, have propelled this now world-famous Olympic town, into a desirable summertime golf destination.”
