Golf Among Iconic Red Rock and Lofty Rocky Mountain Peaks

Sportwriter Bob Ryan calls golf, "A passion, an obsession, a romance, a nice acquaintanceship with trees, sand and water." Utah's roughly 120 courses will help get you closer to some of the earth's most varied and spectacular landscapes. And thanks to the proximity of Utah's Wasatch Mountains to the Wasatch Front metropolitan areas, spring trips to Utah can easily combine a morning of skiing with an afternoon of golf, especially in the spring (Read: Ski and Golf Same Day in Utah).

From lush, high altitude teeing grounds of the Wasatch Back to the stunning fairways of Southern Utah's red rock country, you'll find quality links with professional staffs and top accommodations. View the Utah Golf Association's course directory.

Where to Play

Northern Utah/Wasatch Front

The Wasatch Front, the state's urban core, is home to dozens of courses — all framed by the majestic Wasatch Mountains and paired with Salt Lake City amenities.

The entire area from north to south, from Brigham City and Ogden to Payson, is dotted with inviting courses. Utah Valley, 45 minutes from the SLC airport and served by a regional airport in Provo, is home to eleven courses, including the Johnny Miller-designed golf course at Thanksgiving Point. 

Wasatch Back 

Heber Valley has several clubs, including two fantastic public courses in Wasatch Mountain State Park and Soldier Hollow. Park City is about skiing in the winter, but after the snow melts you can catch visitors at the Park City Golf Club, adjacent to Historic Main Street. 

Southern Utah

Southwestern Utah is gaining recognition as a premier golf destination in the West, combining spectacular red rock scenery with top-rated courses. Many of the golf courses in St. George are bucket-list courses.

Rural areas of Southern Utah are all about hidden gems. Moab's golf courses are the perfect complement to a vacation spent hiking, backpacking or biking. If you are into beating the crowds, quality greens and inspirational scenery, maybe Monticello's Hideout Golf Course is for you.

Utah Weather and Climate

Worried about the weather in Utah? While we can't control it, we are fortunate enough to have a varied climate across three distinct physiographic regions, so there is almost always perfect golf weather someplace in the state, all year-round.
