When the original
18-hole layout at Mountain Dell was expanded and a 36-hole facility opened in
1991, the Lake Course incorporated the majority of the new holes sculpted out of
the Wasatch Mountains by golf architect William H. Neff and PGA Tour
consultant Mike Reid.
The Lake Course at Mountain Dell features narrow, rolling fairways and
dramatic tee shots over deep ravines and water, which place a premium on
precision and accuracy. Using the natural terrain, many holes on the Lake Course
are carved out of the scrub oak and native bushes while providing breathtaking
views and strategic challenges.
The Lake Course is situated at 6,000 feet above sea level, so long hitters can
go for the par-4 fourth green, which measures 371 yards from the blue tees and
310 yards from the whites. It is a picturesque, dramatic, risk-reward
opportunity that ranks as one of the most memorable holes on the golf course.
