Russ Stout  › People Pursuing the Growth of New DG Courses   September 6, 2013 at 12:27pm

So there are apparently two new courses that are opening up or have opened up in Utah county. Beacon Hills Park, a new 28 hole course in Highland, Utah. This course is apparently a combo of baskets and pole holes. Course designer wants feedback to make it awesome. And apparently there is a course in Cedar Hills in Heritage Park. Just letting the peeps know.

More info on these would be great as they are (I think) just a short drive away

So I went out and found the Beacon Hills Park. You can find the location here: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=40.453229,-111.801259&hl=en&sll=40.45311,-111.801018&sspn=0.002422,0.002411&t=h&z=17 It looks like this location had some great potential for an 18 hole course however there are a few thin ... more

What are the hole distances like?? How is the terrain?? Wide open?? Somewhat wooded?? Wooded??

For Beacon Hills I can't say for sure on the whole course. I only looked at the first couple holes which were wide open other than some houses to the far right. As for some of the back end holes, they currently are lined out in some thick scrub oak that in my opinion would need to be cleared out a b ... more

As for Heritage Park, this is a very short course and could be played with a putter. It does play in and around through some mature trees and across a small stream a couple times. There are some elevation changes here as well, but in my opinion the course could be laid out much better for the size ... more

I don't see a map for Heritage Park and have a hard time wanting to try a park w/o one. Even if it is a tentative map, can someone can post it? There is a picture of the Beacon Hills map that looks like it'll work for playing a round that I'm hoping to get to playing on Saturday!

I played the front 9 at Beacon Hills yesterday and it seemed pretty well laid out to start with. I will probably recommend some minor changes to the layout for holes 4,5,6, but otherwise, the course map there seems good. I have not seen a course map for Heritage Park. Also note that there are no ... more
