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

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.

Great course

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.

Solid Golf Course

I think the course is over-hyped but it was still a great course and a lot of fun to play.

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.
