Private Golf Courses Outside Park City Utah
In our last post, we talked about some of the best private golf courses within Park City limits. But there are so many other incredible options that aren’t far from the city! Besides, sometimes it’s good to branch out to see something new and work on your game. So here are three of the best private golf courses outside of—but still super close to—Park City.
The Red Ledges Golf Course is found within the amazing Red Ledges community estates in Heber. Though it is a little farther from Park City, Red Ledges has incredible golf options that will make it worth the trip. Their Jack Nicklaus signature golf course won Golfweek’s “Utah Best of State” seven years in a row! It is one of the most beautiful golf courses as it incorporates and accentuates the red rock and landscape. Nicklaus himself has said: “With the dramatic natural topography and views, the course we designed at Red Ledges is among the finest in the west.” The course offers four sets of tees, as well as fun possibilities for the whole family!
Red Ledges is also home to the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Park, which is a simple course with only 12 holes, making it more family friendly. The course design encourages balls to bounce toward the holes and makes it a little harder to lose a ball. It’s the perfect option for a casual activity with the kids! Moreover, the Red Ledges Club provides one of the finest golf schools in the country; the Jim McLean Golf School has both private and group lessons available—and it’s open to Red Ledges members and the general public! This school offers year round training with a summer facility and a winter indoor simulator.
The Victory Ranch golf course is nestled near the Jordanelle Reservoir in Kamas, Utah. The course was designed by Rees Jones and it has been among Golf Digest’s Best of Utah! Victory Ranch’s unique location offers incredible views of both the reservoir and the Uinta and Wasatch mountains. The course blends with the landscape, creating a very natural 400-foot elevation change throughout the course.
The club provides extensive practice facilities that include a double-sided driving range, short game area, and a large putting green. Victory Ranch also has an amazing Golf Clubhouse with men’s and women’s locker rooms, the Golf Shop with equipment and apparel, and a grill restaurant. The Clubhouse grill has a brand new dining patio that enhances your dining experience with panoramic views of the Utah landscape.
Tuhaye (Talisker Club)
Also in Kamas, the Tuhaye golf course is one of the locations for the Talisker Club and has been named the #3 Best Course in Utah by Golf Digest. This course designed by Mark O’Meara is only 15 minutes east of Park City and, like most golf courses is Utah, the Tuhaye course provides incredible views; however, the location of Tuhaye offers a unique view of the Jordanelle Reservoir, as well as the Deer Valley ski area. Five tees play from 5,100 to 7,800 yards to accommodate all skill levels and desired challenges.
This golf course has a clubhouse with a lounge, bar, and full dining service! The Golf Shop will have any equipment you need and the multiple pools give separate space to the kids in their resort pool while providing a lap pool and hot tub for adults. Tuhaye is an incredible place for other activities all year round: from hiking trails and tennis courts in the summer to cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice skating in the winter.
