Golf and other thrills at Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah
Park City, Utah, recently named as “The Best Town Ever” by Outside Magazine, has no shortage of golf-centric thrills. These go beyond the Park City Golf Course, which is the busiest in the state. Or the superbly conditioned, modestly priced daily-fee facilities such as Mountain Dell, Soldier Hollow and Wasatch Mountain State Park, each of which boast 36 holes, each of which is within 30 minutes of the city limits.
Canyons Resort, the brawny and sweeping ski hill on the north end of town, will unveil their long-awaited golf course in 2014, adding yet another jewel in the gem-studded Park City Crown. But if its thrills you want today, and cannot wait through another long and hopefully snowy winter, head to Canyons asap, and check out their amazing zip-line complex.
The beginner line at resort base is fine for grandma. The medium zip up the hill is a pulse-pounder for dad. But the real attraction is 200 feet above the treetops, a 2,000 foot zip that traverses, well, a canyon, and is one of the most thrilling zip lines in the West. Your next par-3 shot over water won’t be nearly as nerve wracking once you unclip from this exhilarating zip. Visit www.canyonsresort.com for more information.
