|The Mountain Dell Canyon course features 13 of the original 18 holes at Mountain Dell and five new holes rolling up the eastern canyon carved out of the natural oak brush and rose thickets. At an altitude of 6,000 feet, Mountain Dell is near exit 134 on Interstate 80, 12 miles east of Salt Lake City and 13 miles west from Park City. Mountain Dell is about eight degrees cooler in the summer than the Salt Lake Valley. Players on the Canyon Course in the morning or early evening may see deer, elk, moose, eagles, hawks, badgers, squirrels, and an occasional cougar. The Canyon course stretches up the eastern mountain from the clubhouse about four miles before looping back, so motorized golf cars are recommended.
Considered by many to be the most beautiful public golf course in Salt Lake City, Mountain Dell is nestled in Parley`s Canyon. It offers two challenging 18-hole courses, the Lake Course and the Canyon Course, both of which traverse mountainous terrain. Truly enjoy the ambience of these delightful courses by taking a drink of fresh water tapped directly from a natural spring; look around the hills and lakes for moose; and take a deep breath of mountain air.
