The Takeaway: This Arnold Palmer layout used to be the toast of Utah but now stands as the lowest ranked private club in Park City. It isn’t because Jeremy isn’t a good course, because it is solid, but Park City has seen a quick influx of top level courses that has simply dropped Jeremy off the radar. Worth playing, but there are better options in this ski town. Grade C+

What to Expect: This Arnold Palmer design instantly shot up to the top of Utah’s most revered clubs after opening in 1981. Some of that was due to the exposure and hype surrounding the course while it hosted a Champions Tour event from 1982-1992. During that 11-year stint, the event saw winners ranging from inaugural winner Billy Casper to two-time winner Miller Barber. The routing begins benign enough and then, like Emeril, kicks it up a notch with the exhilarating downhill par three 4th hole. From there the course cascades down a canyon before opening up to a large meadow-like area prior to climbing back uphill to the clubhouse location. The course is rather hilly in portions and features some long distances between some greens and tees which results in a difficult walk if you are opposed to riding in the provided cart. Conditioning is average for a country club and the driving range is a bit short since the use of drivers is discouraged. With all of the new courses Utah has seen get built over the last 20 years, The Jeremy has fallen out of Utah’s Top 10 but remains a fine facility that isn’t facing the same financial woes many of the new courses have contended with.
