Golf courses to play in SLC
There are a couple of options when choosing public golf courses in the city. There are two groups: Salt Lake County golf courses and Salt Lake City golf courses. Info for the courses can be found on their respective websites and are a great resource for tee times, course info and other amenities offered at each location. Try playing at Rose Park, Forest Dale or Mick Riley for
a good introduction. Also when starting to play, it’s best to start off with 9 holes. You can get tired pretty quickly when getting back into playing or just starting out. You don’t want to be tired starting the 10th tee and then have a tough back 9. You will likely not enjoy the rest of the course!
If you are wanting to adventure out of Salt Lake, take a look around the Park City area. Park city offers awesome views and cooler temperatures when it comes to hot days in the summer. Check out Mountain Dell, Canyons and Soldier Hollow Golf courses, but they may be more difficult than some courses in Salt Lake County.
