One of the rare Golden Age designs in Utah, Salt Lake Country Club was pegged out by William Watson (of Olympic Club and Interlachen fame) and Harold Lamb back in 1920. More recently, architect John Harbottle carried out an 18-month renovation of the course in 2006.

The club actually dates back to 1899 but it has relocated twice since then, first to Forest Dale in 1905 then to its current site in 1920, with the new course formally opened on 12th May the following year.

The front nine is laid out on markedly sloped terrain, featuring holes that play directly uphill, straight downhill, and some along the slope before arriving at one of the best holes in the state: the downhill 554-yard 9th, with a split fairway perched along the edge of a canyon.

The back nine holes then plunge dramatically down to lower ground, with fairways routed around Parleys Creek before climbing back up towards the clubhouse.

Best holes on the inward half include the 254-yard 10th, where the tee shot drops 100 feet from tee to green; the 187-yard 12th, featuring an all-carry tee shot over water; and the 461-yard 18th, with a hidden water hazard in play off the tee before an uphill approach shot is then required to reach a heavily bunkered home green.

William Watson

William Watson began designing golf courses during a time period when most people in the United States knew nothing about the game of golf, much less how to play or gain access to golf clubs.
