What to Expect: The perennial number one ranked course in the Beehive State. Despite several new courses that have opened in Utah since Glenwild did in 2001, this Park City club continues to be the standard by which all others are judged. Representing Tom Fazio's only design in Utah, Glenwild features numerous elevation changes, beautiful conditioning, majestic mountain views, and championship length. The playing corridors are generous and the greens well protected, but not overbunkered. Wild tee shots will find their way to the fescue/weed combination bordering the grass that in some cases also houses young evergreen trees. The course is part of a residential development but the homes are located well off the course on the hills surrounding the links. Moutain views are available in every direction with ski slopes being cut into the most prominent peaks. Amenities at the club are absolutely top notch with an extensive men's locker room which has attracted members such as Mike Weir and Michael Jordan.

Individual Hole Analysis
Signature Hole: 17th Hole – 245 Yard Par 3 – In classic Fazio fashion, the final par three of the round is a stunning display of challenge and beauty. Nearly 250 yards from the back tee, this one-shotter requires a heroic carry over fescue and water before finding the putting surface. If the pin is tucked in the back left portion of the green then you'll also have a bunker to carry before finding the shallowest part of the green. It is a jaw dropping, downhill hole that will surely get your blood pumping!
