Rating 77.6

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

One of best courses around

Fairways-grass super great shape. Kudos to Superintendent.
Major concern was putting us out at 230 pm Oct. First 9 over 2 1/2 hours but when lost people in front it was a race to dark and finished 1 1/2 hours, barely able to see last hole or two.
Challenging but fun different holes… get money worth. A got to play course.

Great Value

Great value for the money. $69 I believe. This is about an $80-$100 course back home. Rentals were a nice set of Callaway clubs and came with balls. Course used to host the korn ferry tour. Has a fun layout. In good shape. Greens were fast and had a ton of undulation. Even 8-10' putts that look like they don't have much break have pretty severe break. Didn't make any putts and didn't play very well but a fun day. Course record is 62 by Patton Kizzire on the PGA tour. Plays around 7700 yards from the tips. We played it around 6400 yards and it was a lot of fun at that distance. Would love to come back.

Great value

Few rough spots in a couple fairways but the best value I’ve seen for a course. $50 riding. Greens and views were immaculate. Great layout with challenging holes as well

Frost delay

One hour frost delay. Clubhouse employee worked with me to go back 9 / front 9 to get in the 18 holes I paid for.
As with many courses, golfers don’t play total yardage here, they play certain tees and therefore get destroyed in the process. Many golfers unwilling to challenge their manhood and skip up a few tees and appeared to be shooting about 120.

Beautiful scenic course and well maintained. Good pace of play and well worth the price! Very challenging with lots of bunkers and longer holes to make things interesting for even the most experienced players

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.

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.
