1 | Park City Golf Course | One of the best golf courses in Park City is the Park City Golf Course. This 18-hole golf course, designed by William Neff, is open to the public with eight driving ranges, two practice greens and a putting green. It is very popular among visitors and locals alike because the green fees are affordable since it is municipally owned, and the golf course is in perfect playing condition once all the snow melts and the golf season begins.
The Park City Golf Course takes reservations up to seven days in advance. It also offers demos for its rental clubs. The Park City Golf Club also offers lessons to help you with the fundamentals or to improve your game. It is a beautiful course in the summer, but it might be at its finest in the fall when the fall leaves are out and the mountains are filled with red, gold and orange hues. The location of the course in the mountains is nice for the cooler temperatures, and the higher elevation adds a few yards of distance to your shot.
