At an elevation of 7,000 feet above sea level, your golf ball will fly far in the thinner air so don’t be put off by the gargantuan overall length of this place, even with four of the par fours on the card measuring in excess of 500 yards.

Marcella Club by Tiger Woods

Marcella is honored to partner with 82-time PGA TOUR winner, Tiger Woods, and his golf course design firm, TGR Design, for their first mountain course design. The championship course will feature generous landing areas helping players to keep the ball in play while still challenging players with strategic choices and angles off the tee for the best opportunities to score. The greens will vary in size and contouring to reinforce the tee shot strategy, but with green surrounds mowed tight, players missing the green will be able to use their creativity to make interesting recoveries.

The partnership between Marcella Club and Tiger will be the premier golf experience in the Mountain West resulting in a championship course that will fully take advantage of the stunning Utah setting and be strategically designed to be playable for all.
