    Willow Creek CC

    Course Par Value: 71 • Course Yardage: 7104
    The Willow Creek Country Club in Salt Lake County is nestled at the base of the Wasatch Mountains. The 7,104 yard layout has hosted the Utah Open for over 15 years.

    The club was founded in 1957 when 25 Salt Lakers purchased 166 acres of ground in suburban Sandy for $150,000. Today that might buy a modest housing lot in the Willow Creek area. The club members have never been self satisfied. The philosophy has always been keep improving. As a result the club house is one of the largest and best appointed of any private club in Utah and indeed the Intermountain area. Continual upgrades and improvements to the course have not only enhanced its beauty and condition, they have increased its difficulty.

    Currently overseeing operations are General Manager Alex Nicolaidis, Golf Professional Eric Nielsen and Grounds Superintendent Troy VanDenBerghe.
