Located in Sterling, UT, the Palisade State Park Golf Course measures 6,360 yards from the back tee markers but plays longer because all the par 5s play uphill. However, the 18-hole golf course will challenge even the most advanced player because of the difficulties encountered around the greens. The classic mountain layout has an elevation change of 230 feet from 5,885 feet at the base to 6,115 at the top. Though its expansive undulating greens are truly a test, the greatest challenge may be signature hole number 4. This 179-yard par 3 has an elevation drop of 70 feet and requires golfers to carry the ball over a canyon, and land it precisely on the green. A ball hit too long will hit into the mountain behind the green and ricochet anywhere. On the other hand, a ball hit too short will certainly come to rest in the canyon below. The Salt Lake Tribune has likened this hole to the famous 12th at Augusta National and the Deseret News had it on its “Best Holes” list. This is a Salt Lake City must-play.
