Thanksgiving PointThis Johnny Miller designed layout is in the heroic tradition and at 7728 yards from the tips, is one of the longest.  Located south of Salt Lake City, the course is routed along the Jordan River where elevation changes are frequent and several distinct geological areas add variety and drama to the landscape.  The Third is the shortest of the par 4's at 325 yards, but to go for the green is dangerous because the fairway narrows severely near the green.  The par 4 Sixth is all of 495 yards with a demanding uphill tee shot.  All the par 3's are fairly long (195 to 250) and two, including the longest are over water.  Fortunately they are aided by downhill tee shots.  Only one par 5 is less than 600 yards, the Second at 583.  The Eleventh is a whopping 678 yards!  Several holes on the back offer tantalizing opportunities to cut off distance with long carries from the tee, but the penalty for a missed shot can be severe.  This is a physically challenging course, but for those that like to be challenged mentally it is disappointing.
