What to Expect: Valley View is widely regarded as the best value, fairest challenge, and most aesthetically pleasing public course in Utah. The terrain is hilly and offers a challenging, but not overbearing, walk. The course lacks any homes on site and features a few water hazards and several bunkers. The fairways are lined with a variety of species of trees and the conditioning for a municipal course is very good. The opening tee shot is a dramatic downhill par four where the player can cut the corner over the water if they are willing to risk the result. With four sets of tees, great greens, variety within the layout, and a good location, Valley View is a must-play for any golfer and the affordable green fees will keep you coming back.
