AJGA’s First Tournament in Utah Starts Off on Right Foot
Glenwild Golf Club and Spa—Utah’s No. 1 golf course—to play host to AJGA event

Located in the Rocky Mountains outside of Park City, Utah, Glenwild Golf Club & Spa is a wonderful addition to the list of outstanding venues the American Junior Golf Association has inked in on its 2004 schedule. Not only will the AJGA run the inagural AJGA Glenwild Junior at this outstanding facility—the state’s No. 1 course—but it is also the first time the Beehive State has been included on the Association’s tournament schedule in its 26-year history.

The tournament will feature a field of 84-top junior boys and girls ages 12-18 from around the country. With the AJGA Glenwild Junior being the first event the AJGA has hosted in the state of Utah, Tournament Director Derrick Farnham hopes to bring the state nothing but the best that Utah has seen for junior golf.

“Bringing an AJGA tournament to this area of the country is great for junior golf,” Farnham said. “The western region of the United States has some of the top juniors in the country, and I think Glenwild will really give them a challenge.”

Noteworthy: Glenwild Golf Club & Spa was rated as the top golf course in Utah by Golf Digest magazine.

Glenwild was built in August 2001, but due to Utah’s severe weather conditions, the course has been open for play for only 15 months.

“We are very excited to team up with the AJGA,” Glenwild head professional, Mark Aulrich said. “It’s nice to see a national golf event come to the Park City area.”

The venue is located on a 900-acre property development area situated in a mountain environment amongst wild flowers and 9,000 freshly planted trees. Considering course designer Tom Fazio has produced almost 20 percent of Golfweek Magazines current list of America’s Best 100 Modern courses, it is no surprise that Glenwild was ranked by Golf Digest as the No. 1 course in Utah.

“Glenwild is an extremely challenging but fun course,” Aulrich said. “A par-71, 7,600 yard course appears to be a lot of golf, but players should also remember Glenwild is 6,600 feet above sea level.”

Therefore a player’s drive off the tee will carry far, which will make for an exciting tournament. A waterfall, winding stream and a series of lakes will provide another set of challenges for the junior golfers. With these obstacles, it is no wonder why Glenwild has an intimidating course slope and rating of 75.7 and 186, respectively.

“The finishing holes are the strongest consecutive holes on the course,” Aulrich said. “It will be fun to see how the juniors fair not only on the course as a whole, but also on the final two holes.”

The par-4, 456-yard No. 18 begins with a scenic tee shot looking out at the Wasatch Range. On the left side of the fairway is a lake that extends from the start of the fairway to the green with the right side having two bunkers and numerous trees.

Park City is not only well known for its fabulous winter sports and beautiful golf courses, but also for its open-air activities. Nearly five miles from Glenwild, families can find activities such as hiking through the Wasatch Range or a mountain bike trail that takes you through fields of wildflowers and a beautiful view of Park City. Historic downtown Park City features specialty shops and restaurants along with many health clubs and spas.
