Homestead Resort Offers Free Day of Golf


The Homestead, Utah’s only resort with an on-property, 18-hole championship golf course, is offering a free day of golf on April 20, 2009 in celebration of its 20th anniversary this year. Tee times will be available to the public starting on April 13 and will be offered on a first come first serve basis. The cart fee will not be included. Tee times can be booked by calling 866-348-8993. 

To further celebrate this significant milestone and as a thank you to customers, the Homestead will offer 9-holes of golf with cart for $20 or 18-holes for $40, for the entire 2009 golf season. The course has already opened for the year. The special rates apply to golfers who book tee times seven days in advance, excluding groups.   

The Homestead’s 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Bruce Summerhayes, has been recognized by the Best of State award organization as the best golf course for three of the past four years as well as the best golf shop in Utah for a total of four years. The Homestead’s 7,000-yard, par-72 course has incorporated a state-of-the-art GPS system for golfers. This high-tech system calculates exact yardages, allows golfers to keep track of their scores electronically, communicates real-time to the leader board for tournaments and includes a food and beverage ordering capability and a help button for staff assistance.  

“Over the past 20 years, the Homestead golf course has experienced tremendous growth and has become a Utah favorite for golf enthusiasts across the state and throughout the region,” said Chris Briscoe, Director of Golf at the Homestead. “We enjoy serving the many individuals and businesses who have participated in the 220,000 tournament rounds of golf and 3,000 tournaments that we have hosted throughout the years.” 

The Homestead 18-hole championship golf course, which winds through the surrounding Snake Creek Valley and Wasatch Mountains, continues to offer tremendous value with special offers and competitive rates. The Homestead is known for providing the lowest rate to seniors for $25 from Monday through Thursday after noon.  

The Homestead Resort’s championship golf course is a 20 year charter member of the Audobon Sanctuary Program for golf courses. This program promotes ecologically sound land management and the conservation of natural resources. The positive impact that results from these practices extends beyond the golf course and helps benefit the broader community.
