The Takeaway:  The best public course and value in Northern Utah, Valley View is a gem that locals know how good it is but few others do. The natural movement in the terrain, mountain views, and variety in hole designs is exceptional for a municipal course and a must play if you are in the Salt Lake City area.  Grade B-

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.
