This is a scenic, wooded course with views of Salt Lake valley. It is hilly, tight with a number of elevation changes and well-maintained. Views are of Salt Lake Valley.
Bountiful Ridge Golf Course is one of the best known and popular courses on the Wasatch Front. The course is well known for two reasons. It is a very good and cheap local municipal course and many people come to play it from all over Northern Utah. It is also in an upper-middle class neighborhood and the locals treat it like their own country club.
The only changes the Utah Golf Authority has noticed are new water hazards on 8, 9 and 18. The hazard on the 18th can be blind so remember there's now a pond in the right half side of the fairway in the valley before the green.
The course is on the side of the foothills and all holes have a commanding view of the Great Salt Lake and Bountiful City below. To get to the course exit I-15 in Bountiful or Woods Cross. Find 1800 South Street and start climbing the mountain. make a right on Bountiful Boulevard and you'll run right into it.
The course is not overly long but it is demanding. Conservative play is in order as most fairways are flanked by thick strands of trees and waste areas. The front nine is easy to walk but the back nine requires a long up and downhill climb to the east side of the street bisecting the course..
Make tee times on Thursday morning at 7:00 AM for the weekend. Wake up early and just keep hitting the redial button. Don't give up even if one hour has passed. If you know anyone who is a local, ask them to stop by and get you a time (rumor is they get special treatment).
The Pro Shop and the snack bar are ok. Like Valley View Golf Course there is a "community center" feel about the place. There is NOT a driving range and you have to get a map to the putting green.
Besides the golf course the best thing is sitting on the outside balcony after the round watching the approach shots to the 18th green.
