The Tuhaye golf course sits within the massive 10,000-acre Talisker Club residential development close to the Jordanelle Reservoir and its eighteen Mark O’Meara-designed holes extend to an incredible 7,800 yards from the back markers.
At an elevation of 7,000 feet above sea level, your golf ball will fly far in the thinner air so don’t be put off by the gargantuan overall length of this place, even with four of the par fours on the card measuring in excess of 500 yards.
As you might expect when playing mountain golf, there are elevation changes to be encountered throughout the round but they’re not as severe as you might think. The back nine holes are more challenging than the front nine, with the finishing four holes all climbing uphill.
Highlight holes include the 225-yard 2nd, played uphill to a green that’s angled from front right to back left; the 602-yard 6th, played downhill towards a couple of ponds, either of which must be crossed with the second shot from the fairway; and the 518-yard 12th, featuring a split fairway that offers three separate routes to the green.
