Nibley Park Golf Course is the oldest public golf course in Utah. Not just in Salt Lake City. All of Utah. I probably drive by this course 10 times per week. Always wanted to play it because it always looks like it’s in really good shape. In a lot of ways, however, it is just a typical Municipal Golf Course with Nine holes.
Most people just play once around, and the Price is Right to walk at $14.00 per 9 holes.
In some ways the course is very easy to play. Opens with a nice dogleg left par-4. From the blue tees, it has some honest par fours. It has a nice interesting mix of par threes. The final hole, number 9, plays over a beautiful little lake. The suggested time to finish 9 holes his two hours and 15 minutes. Which is exactly where we finished, but it felt quite slow.  It was a very leisurely outing. People like to take their time out there because it’s such an enjoyable little course. It’s interesting, see how this is Utah, how many empty beer cans there were in all of the trash receptacles. Like I said, people prefer to have a good time on this course.
Even though we had a lot of snow and even some recent rain, the greens were very hard and did not hold very well, but they we’re very easy to putt on. The fairways were recently plugged and drilled so there were a lot of trunks of dirt scattered around. There aren’t very many tricky brakes to these greens, and they roll true. The putts seem to break away from the Wasatch Mountains. I guess the best thing I can say about Nibley Park is that I will be back. Often. Really good for your game. And by the way, I had my first eagle in very many years today!
