Golf Ball and ClubWhat’s the first thing to come to mind when you think of Park City, Utah? What? Skiing and not golf? Although this world-class ski resort is known best for its fine winter sports, Park City is home to some excellent golf courses too.

Golfing on the Wasatch Back is a great experience because the ambiance is like none other. One of the best reasons to come down from the slopes is to get onto area golf courses. There’s something about that mountain air that helps your whole body breath easier.

There are some excellent opportunities right now for those looking to purchase Park City vacation homes and Deer Valley investment property. They’re located on the back of the fabulous Rocky Mountain Wasatch Range. Locals call it the Wasatch Back. Ski, hike, hunt, fish, play and mountain bike – but if you’re an avid golfer, do not miss your chance to play these courses.

According to an article published on, “Park City, Utah and the Nearby Heber Valley area officially joined the national golf boom trend leading up to the 2002 Winter Olympics. The well-publicized games brought a ton of new opportunities to the once quaint little resort towns in Summit and Wasatch counties, located about 25 miles east of downtown Salt Lake City. The area now boasts 14 superb golf courses, all within 30 minutes of one of the finest mountain resort towns in the country.”

Big-name architects seized the opportunity to create original signatures on Utah’s mountain mecca landscape. Park City is home to private and public golf facilities and the area is quickly becoming a major golf destination.

If you purchase a Park City luxury home, you will appreciate the cool mountain temperatures here. All of the other amenities that make the Wasatch Back great during the winter are right here in the spring, summer and fall!
