Thanksgiving Point Golf Club
At more than 200 acres, the Golf Course at Thanksgiving Park is one of the largest and lengthiest courses in the state. Since its opening, the golf course has received many accolades from publications like Golf Digest, Links Magazine and TravelGolf.com, calling it the best public golf club in Utah and one of 15 "hidden gems" in the country. The golf course was built on mountainous terrain with a desert landscape and the Jordan River meandering through it. To add even more to the scenery, there are also flower gardens and pine trees sprinkled throughout the course. There are many elevation changes and a good amount of undulation on Thanksgiving Park's greens. The mounded fairways are lined with trees. Water hazards come into play on some holes and there are also over 100 bunkers present

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Utah
A Traveling Golfer
Enjoyed playing on a warm Friday afternoon as I was traveling through Utah. Course was in really good condition but played long and difficult for this bogey golfer. Challenging shot making opportunities even though the fairways were generous on most holes. Many well placed traps along fairways and around the greens. Keep it in the fairways. Managing elevations and winds added to the challenge. Large greens putted slow, but provided many undulations and levels. All of this in a beautiful setting along the Jordan River. Three of the Par 3s offer picturesque and challenging shots from elevated tee boxes. Many beautiful holes looking from the tee boxes. If you are looking for a challenge, this is the course for you.
Great Public Course
Very nice course. Great layout, good condition. Some pretty holes.
Today was a great round of golf. Friendly staff and very professional
You Can't Go Wrong
The course is a very solid design and as a professional caddie,I can tell you that the greens are more nuanced and difficult than meets the eye. They are LEGIT! Young Brett in the pro shop is always a pleasure to deal with.
Solid Golf Course
I think the course is over-hyped but it was still a great course and a lot of fun to play.
Absolutely beautiful. Best course I've played. I will definitely play it next time I visit Utah.
I will be back!
As a member of a Private club in the area, I've not played any of the public courses. This one has me second guessing my choice. A fantastic layout, great views and a ton of fun to play. With some TLC this course would be a lot higher ranked.
Wouldn’t play again in early spring again
I understand it’s only March but greens were slow and tee boxes weren’t even marked. We had to estimate which tee box was which caused some confusion. For those who hate cart path only, cart path only rule applied today even though the course wasn’t wet.
In my opinion the course didn’t look like it was ready to be opened up for the season. I’m sure the course will be in great shape in a couple months but until then I won’t be back.
Glad I played.
I was told about this course by a co-worker who said I should play it and that I would like this course.
So glad I played it. It is challenging and beautiful. The greens were quick and true. I recommend this course with high grades.
Best Condition in years
Just played Thanksgiving point today, and the condition wasn’t really good, especially the purity and speed of the greens. I also like the few changes made to the course, it feels more open now, at least visually. I’m a member at a private club, but I’m considering getting a membership at TP to get tested on another level. The wind is the only thing that really bothers me about playing there, so dealing with it everyday might be tough...but the wind cant be controlled. What Troon can control, they’ve done a grest job, since taking over from Vanguard.
Great Course - Long Course - Pretty Views
Very fun and challenging course in good condition.
Lots of bunkers in strategic locations both in the fairway as well as near the greens. The are a few holes which requires a forced carries, and water comes into play on several holes. The rough was very lush, thick and was on long side. Due to that, hitting fairways was at a premium.
The bunkers need some help and attention. MANY of the bunkers had zero to little sand in them. Also, there were many ares were a little on the soggy side
The greens rolled true and were very quick with lots of humps, ridges and undulations which added to the challenge of the course. The worst part of the greens was there there are tons of non-repaired ball marks all over the greens. I fixed at least three or four ball marks on every green and it did not make a difference at all due to so many ball marks all over the greens.
Having said that, I would definitely play again due to the course being a great layout, many beautiful views, lots of elevation changes and lots of wind which adds to the challenge.
