What to Expect:  Length, great par 3s, extraordinary design variety, and wind. At over 7700 yards from the tips, Johnny Miller set up his magnum opus as a track capable of hosting the world's best. A 250 yard par 3, a 495 yard par 4, and brutal 678 yard par 5 all demand the capable use of every long stick in your bag. Dogleg lefts and dogleg rights, elevated greens and elevated tees, and an artisan's use of Utah's Jordan River provide an experience devoid of duplicate holes and perpetual curiosity of what the next hole will bring. Positioned at the narrow transition point between Utah Valley and the Salt Lake Valley, wind is a nearly constant factor but adds to the distinctive personality of an extraordinary course.

Individual Hole Analysis

Signature Hole:  17th Hole – 250 Yard Par 3 – Thanksgiving Point's 17th would take this honor at most courses, and does so here as well. An absolute masterpiece, #17 makes strategic use of a tight 180 degree bend in the Jordan River to locate its wide, shallow-appearing, peninsular green. Tee boxes concurrently step from highest to lowest and longest to shortest, but all give ample view of the trouble that exists as the water awaits an occasion to baptize your ball for any shot hit short, left, or long.
