Bountiful: A par 71 municipal course of majestic wide open beauty, Bountiful rests atop the mountains surrounding Salt Lake City. It is not a normal stop on the tour, but its wild setting, large tantalizing fairways and challenging greens provide an unaccustomed treat for the Pros. Scoring here can be low, but if the greens are dry and hard, golfers beware. The sharp breaks and unusual elevations are treacherous. A poorly judged putt can cause misery and embarrassment as well as a ruined round. All three par-5's are reachable in two and several of the par-4's are short. The Fourth and Eleventh though, are exceptionally difficult. The 422 yard Fourth is a sharp dogleg left where judging the flight of the ball around the sharp corner, uphill and in the wind, to a shallow fairway demands perfect execution. The 449 yard Eleventh offers another uphill drive to a dogleg right. If the drive is short or too far right reaching the green over the shaggy cedars in two is almost impossible. The finishing hole, a Par-5 at 485 yards can be easily reached, but the approach is all carry over a deep ravine gully in the fairway and two deep grassy depressions. The two-tiered green is demonically tricky. Any putt from above the hole is in danger of rolling all the way off the green. There have been some dramatic finishes there. Mountain goats, deer and rabbits are frequently seen roaming about, and with majestic views of the Great Salt Lake, this picturesque little course is a welcome diversion from the tight formality of the regular tour.
