Canyons Golf Course has a scenic location surrounded by both the Wasatch and Uinta mountain ranges. The course sits at the center of Canyons Resort, which serves as a ski resort in the winter. The course takes advantage of the dramatic landscape with six holes that are intermingled with skiable terrain. From each of the course's elevated tees you'll enjoy stunning mountain views to accompany the challenging design. The hilly golf course features more than 550 feet of elevation change. The most intimidating height comes on the 10th hole, which has a 297-foot elevation change from tee to green. Strategically placed bunkers complement the contours of the layout and there are also water hazards coming into play on several holes. Canyons Golf Course's 18th is the most memorable water hole with an island green encircled by the Willow Draw Stream.

Beautiful Scenery

The scenery is outstanding. The layout of the course is above average, fitting well into the natural terrain. The greens kept my rating from being 4 stars. The greens were very hard, not holding approach shots well. Wedges struck well would roll 15 to 20 feet after landing. The undulations and multi-tiers of the greens were too difficult for the average golfer.
Marshaling would assist in making the play and pace of play more enjoyable. The foursome of men in front of us had a clear hole ahead of them multiple times, but refused to allow us to play through or made not attempt to pick up pace of play. One member of the foursome, even though two foursomes were waiting on the tee box insisted upon practice putting if he missed a putt. (Breach of Rule 5.6)

Absolutely beautiful

Beautiful course with a challenging layout. We were immediately met with a cart in the parking lot. Then we were given tips about the course and layout since it was our first time there. Beautiful scenery throughout the entire course. Only hiccup we had was the sprinklers were turned on when we got to the 10th hole.

Construction

So much construction going on surrounding the course. Very tricky/tight layout with many blind shots. Wet complicated green complexes. Decent views but feel the course is a couple years away.

Spectacular Views - Challenging Layout

Canyons has two holes where the mountain top view is so dramatic - 350 ft. drop from the black tees. Don't let the 6000 yd black tee fool you. Plenty long - and impossible to finish round with same ball you started with. Fabulous conditions, strategic bunkers, and this course cannot be walked!

Views and setting are best in Park City

The course is narrow since it's competing with valuable ski real estate. The dramatic vistas and tee box views are some of the best in the State. Course lacks a range or chipping area, otherwise an amazing experience. Weather changed quickly, so only completed 9 holes. Staff was great.

Really challenging

Awsome elevated tees. Especially on the front side, as well as hole #10. Greens putt true. If you hit the greens on the top shelf and your going down hill, its impossible to keep ball on the green.

Quirky

I had high expectations going into this course and it was somewhat underwhelming. The conditions were very good with the greens rolling smooth but, for the money there are better courses in the area. The views are amazing though of the holes are on mountian sides or ski slopes. The design is compact, and course very quirky and odd. A decent course but a little to out there for me.

Mountain goats will love it

No clubhouse, many dirt and gravel cart paths, front nine on ski mountain,, poor refreshments,, beautiful vistas make up for much and it’s inexpensive.

Tricked Up

The course was in good shape but an unusual (not in a good way) golfing experience. Parking is a ways away. No practice range and the course (front side especially) was tricked up. No towels, no water available until the 5th hole. Mud cart paths. Many of the greens were severve and somewhat ridiculous. Beautiful seenery. Probably will not be back.
