Scenic golf courses are to be found in practically every corner of the western state of Utah, making this a prime destination for enthusiasts of the sport. And whilst there are many excellent courses to choose from, the Glenwild Golf Club is consistently regarded as the best in the Beehive State – and the standard against which all others are judged.
The course is loosely attached to a beautiful residential development, with private homes set on the hilltops surrounding the links. One such property is the majestic Glenwild Mountain Estate, located on an elevated lot with 180-degree golf course and Park City views. The open plan design means the surrounding scenery is visible from most rooms of the house, as well as from the spacious patio, which comes with its own built-in BBQ. Five bedrooms include a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, while the gourmet chef’s kitchen and theatre room are equipped with state-of-the-art appliances.
The prestigious Glenwild Golf Club is located almost on the property’s doorstep, nestled within the idyllic Snyderville Valley. It has the distinction of being the only course in Utah designed by celebrated architect Tom Fazio, and features a meandering creek and a series of lakes. At 7,541 yards, Glenwild is a par-71 championship course, with views of the Wasatch Mountains at every turn. Dining at the clubhouse offers a refreshing mixture of gourmet dishes and more casual barbecue fare from the Patio Grill Menu. A spa, gym and tennis court complete the facilities on offer at the elegant, 39,000-square-foot private club.
There are also plenty of golfing opportunities outside Glenwild, with the Park City area boasting no less than 15 excellent courses. The private Promontory Golf Club offers two courses: the 11-hole Painted Valley Course (designed by Jack Nicklaus) and the 18-hole Canyon Course, masterminded by Pete Dye. Renowned architect Rees Jones designed the championship golf course at Victory Ranch, whilst the equally celebrated Gene Bates produced the Gold Course at Soldier Hollow, along with the par-70 course at the Canyons ski resort.
Golf isn’t the only attraction, though, as the Glenwild Mountain Estate property is also just a short drive away from Park City’s historic Main Street. The street has been the mountain town’s main shopping locale since the 1800s, and today features over 70 independent retailers, from the fashion-forward Farasha Boutique to the luxury Baranof Jewelers. There are also more than 50 one-of-a-kind dining options available, including refined American Western restaurant Purple Sage, which is located within the original Rocky Mountain Bell telephone building on the Main Street.
