In 2002, Pete Dye’s Canyon course became the first of two 18-hole layouts to open for play at the Promontory Club. Another five years would pass before the Jack Nicklaus-designed Painted Valley layout completed the 36-hole complex.
Up to five 18-hole courses have been ear-marked for The Promontory Club property and there are firm plans in place for a third course – a Tom Weiskopf design – to make an appearance but that particular venture’s been on hold for a while.
The front nine holes on the Dye are laid out on open terrain overlooking Park City and Deer Valley whilst the shorter back nine climbs into more undulating territory, with holes playing through a number of protected canyons."I have never worked on a property of this nature," said Dye, when the course first opened. "This is the highest elevation I have ever worked on, and it is a totally unique experience. And, the surroundings are so great, they're so big. It looks to me like the fairways are just flowing down these valleys."
