Valley View Golf Course in Layton offers a fun and challenging championship course for an affordable price. The course's name refers of course to the Salt Lake Valley, which it offers nice views of, but there are also scenic vistas of the Wasatch Mountains. The large greens are rolling and fast and there are crosscut fairways. There are four sets of tees, many of which are elevated. In addition to the many water hazards and bunkers present on the course there are also several sidehill lies. Both the front and back nines have an interesting and varied mix of holes.

My favorite course around the Salt Lake area. Very challenging especially from the tips - hard to find some of the tee boxes (tips) if you haven't played before. No two holes alike, greens can have a lot of break - stay below the hole. As has been mentioned it can be slow - especially on weekend before noon (it's a tough track) and I agree the staff isn't always the most pleasant, but I over look that because the course is a great test, if you score well here you've played a great round of golf. Usually in very good condition. I think Golf (or Digest) magazine had this a one of the best courses under $50 years ago. Low handicap golfers will tell you this is one of the best muni courses in Salt Lake area.

Sincerely the worst customer experience I've ever had at a golf course. Terrible customer service, terrible attitude, shameful excuses and justifications for unacceptable golf etiquette. If I could give ZERO stars I would.

Played 9-holes in 3 hours and 20 minutes, waiting on EVERY. SINGLE. SHOT for the group in front of me. Called the clubhouse after 3 holes to alert them, and they DIDN'T DO A THING. When I finished, and asked for a refund based on the time it took to complete the round, the professional (I use the term as his status with the PGA, not his customer service skills) and assistant professional (again - status with the PGA) were very combative and disrespectful. At one point the assistant professional stated the group in front of me finished 40 MINUTES after the group in front of them. They played a 5 hour and 10 minute round of golf. Neither the professional or assistant professional acknowledged any kind of issue with a group of golfers playing in that amount of time, or finishing 40 minutes behind the group in front of them. I won't return to this golf course.

Difficult but beautiful course. Usually in great condition. Frequently see deer and other wildlife while playing. Very hilly - tiring to walk unless you're in very good physical condition.
