Soldier Hollow/Wasatch Mountain Golf Courses provide some of the most beautiful vistas you’ll find during a round of golf throughout both 36-hole complexes. Soldier Hollow was a major venue during the 2002 Winter Olympics. The Gold Course, host of the National Pub Links Championship, is a mountain or foothills course with significant elevation change throughout the course and dramatic elevation changes within each hole. Wasatch Mountain’s Mountain Course is a classic mountain-style layout. Golfers enjoy occasional sightings of roaming deer, elk, wild turkeys, moose, and other wildlife.
Zermatt Utah is an all-seasons beauty in 8,000-12,000 foot mountains on the Wasatch Back.
