The Takeaway: One of the best values in the country and a model by which other municipal courses should follow, Bountiful Ridge is a mountainside layout that should not be missed when in the Salt Lake City area. Highlights include expansive views across the valley, great conditioning, and excellent variety. The closing hole is one of the most memorable in the state. Grade C+

What to Expect: Bountiful Ridge grew in popularity largely due to its debut on the Links golf game when the developer infused his home course into the game. The course isn't very long but features the quickest and most well maintained greens I've ever seen at a true municipal course. Residents of Bountiful tout it as their country club even though it is fully public. The winds through a myriad of scrub oak bushes and features thick rough that is tough to advance the ball out of. Gorgeous views across the Salt Lake valley and The Great Salt Lake are the call of the day on this track that is built on the side of a mountain. A handful of water features are found on the course with the dramatic 18th hole boasting a cascading waterfall behind the green that flows down the right side of the fairway. The course is an unbelievable value and an excellent track that can be enjoyed by all.
