Canyon at Mountain Dell Golf Course
The Canyon at Mountain Dell Golf Course features 13 of the original 18 holes at Mountain Dell and five new holes rolling up the eastern canyon, carved out of the natural oak brush and rose thickets.
Considered by many to be the most beautiful public golf course in Salt Lake City, Mountain Dell is nestled in Parley's Canyon. It offers two challenging 18-hole courses, the Lake Course and the Canyon Course, both of which traverse mountainous terrain.
Players on the Canyon Course with early-morning or early-evening tee times may see deer, elk, moose, eagles, hawks, badgers, squirrels, and an occasional cougar. The Canyon course stretches up the eastern mountain from the clubhouse about four miles before looping back, so motorized golf cars are recommended.
Canyon, designed by William Bell Jr. and opened in 1962, measures 6.787 yards from the black tees. Par is 72 for men and 73 for women.

Great Muni with views and challenge for all level players
the Lake course at Mt Dell provides great scenery, on well maintained fairways and greens on the rolling hills of Parleys Canyon. Great signature holes over lakes and gulches, elevated tee boxes, make this a fun course to play. Nice compliment to the tighter Canyon course.
Bring A LOT Of Golf Balls With You!
This course was tough from the start - the first hole is headed downhill and there are huge bushes and trees lining the sides. If you mishit, your ball is good as gone on quite a few holes.
Lots of downhill play which means you have to rethink your clubs A LOT. It was definitely challenging - I haven't gone running back to play Mountain Dell because this course whipped me. I definitely need to brush up on some of my skills.
The views are stunning and it's fun to be up in the mountains playing golf, though.
If you're lucky, you might even catch a moose or two walking around in the distance.
I'd say definitely worth playing if you want to golf the mountains and don't want to pay too much!
It's too bad they won't fix this course up. The cart paths are in need of repair, the clubhouse looks like it's going to fall over. It could be a great course if they'd take care of it better
