The Wasatch Mountain Golf Course facility lies immediately to the north west of Midway, where two 18-hole layouts are open for public play. The Lake course opened in 1967 but the out and back Mountain course took a further three decades before debuting.
Wasatch Mountain has two excellent golf courses. Mountain and Lake. We will be reviewing Mountain. Unfortunately, it is a riding only course.
The first hole is a short welcoming par 4. It lists right so favor left of center off the tee. The first par 3 is relatively short and what you see is what you get, bunker right and left. The 3rd hole is more demanding than it appears. The hole tilts right and the fairway ends about 125 yards out. Favor the left off the tee as the contour also goes right and right of the cart path is bogey at best. Four thru eight are your scoring holes. Four is a short par four, favor the left off the tee to set up your attack wedge. The 5th is another relatively short par 3 with the only challenge front bunker right. I was forewarned about the 6th being tough and that is probably true if you are not in play off the tee. (of course, that applies to just about every hole.) It is straight and uphill with woods left and right, however, the contours on either side of the fairway are much like bowling gutter bumpers. If you are slightly off kilter, the bumper will kick you back. The 7this another short par three and at least this one has a nice view. The 8th is a 591 yard par 5 and it is reachable as it is downhill. Favor left of center to give you the best greenlight. The 9th is also a par 5, this time straight up the hill.
The back starts with the shortest hole on the course and is followed by the shortest par 4. While the 11th is uphill, a monster drive can get there. The hole lists to the right and you need to get your drive up quickly to clear the trees. There are front greenside bunkers right and left. Also, this is a crowned green front/back. The 12th is the longest hole, bends right, but left is death. Favor left of center off the tee, the left fairway bunker is a good alignment point and play it as a 3 shotter. The 13th is a long par 3 with a bunker front left. The 14th is a reachable par 5, favor the right off the tee and take at least ½ an extra club on the approach to the elevated green. The 15th should be an easy hole, but I mucked it up. Do not hit a duck hook off the tee, you will be in jail. The shortest par four on the back, pay attention to pin location. There is a natural backstop about 2/3 of the way back. The 16th is another reachable par five. Favor the right off the tee. There are a couple of bunkers front left, but this green has a ledge running across it about halfway deep. The 17th is a tight downhill long par 3 with a stream in front. The 18th requires a little finesse. A driver will probably go thru the fairway. The hole goes left and even a high draw may end up in the hazard. Best to lay up on this hole.
A good course with nice views and a great value.
