THE COURSE: Park Meadows is a Jack Nicklaus links-style design in downtown Park City. Ski slopes surround the golf course and offer spectacular views from any spot on the property.
FAVORITE HOLE: Right now, I think it’s the 12th.
It’s a mid-length, downhill par 3 with a picture perfect view of the ski resorts. It’s a hole where you can take advantage of the high-altitude ball flight conditions and watch your ball soar for an extra second or two before it hits the green. I’ve made a couple of birdies there, so maybe that’s part of the reason I like it.
WHY IS PARK CITY GREAT FOR GOLF? There’s an expression here that says, “People come to Park City for the winters and they stay for the summers.” I thought I grew up in the Mecca of summertime conditions in Orange County, California, but now I know it’s all about the high desert conditions we have here in PC. There’s nothing else like it in my experience. Thin air at high altitude gives you as much as 10% more distance on some shots and the combination of a cool breeze and the warm-but-not-hot temperatures is perfect for golf.
