Alan Ashton co-founded the word processing application Wordperfect in 1979 and then sold the multi-million dollar business to another software company in 1994, allowing his wife Karen and himself to establish Thanksgiving Point shortly after the sale was completed.

Located in Lehi, to the south of Salt Lake City, this garden and museum complex – featuring the Museum of Natural Curiosity and the Museum of Ancient Life – includes a Johnny Miller-designed course which weaves its way around several of the attractions on the property.

Measuring 7,714 yards from the back tees and occupying an area of two hundred acres, the course at Thanksgiving Point comprises the largest public golf facility in the state of Utah, with fairways laid out on either side of the Jordan River as it flows towards Great Salt Lake.

Highlight holes include the 495-yard 6th, where the fairway is flanked by gated gardens to the left and the river on the right; the 678-yard 11th, requiring an intimidating long carry over water off the tee; and the 250-yard 17th, where a tight bend in the river forms a peninsula green site for this par three.
