Ski and Golf
The snow is gone from valley locations around Utah and many of our golf courses have opened. Our friend, Ray Grass, wrote this interesting article about wrapping ski and golf into one action-packed adventure. Here are excerpts:
There are, for example, more than 40 public golf courses in less than an hour's drive of seven ski areas — Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, Solitude, Canyons, Deer Valley and Park City. Many of those courses are less than 30 minutes and some less than 10 minutes away from the slopes.

 "I don't know of another place in the country, and even in Canada, where people have such flexibility. We are unique in that we have the mountains so close to the valleys. When I talk with other people about the variety and convenience we have they're surprised,'' said Scott Whitaker, executive director of the Utah Section Professional Golf Association.
