In the opinion of the Utah Golf Authority, Mount Ogden is the epitome of a Wasatch Mountain golf course: heavely tree-lined fairways, major elevation changes, waste areas, beautiful views, wildlife, dog legs that can be cut and cold mountian streams.
It is a demanding but fun course. Accuracy is a must and local knowledge is a big benefit. The first time you play you probably won't choose the right tee shot on every hole. Once you learn them you can start being brave and cutting corners.
Fairways and greens are cut out of the trees and buck brush on the side of the mountains. Bring lots of balls if you're not a straight shooter. Your group will feel alone on each hole. Most holes offer a great view of the city and valley below.
There are several tees that are elevated what seems like hundreds of feet from the fairway below. This is the only course that I have never walked because of the elevation changes and the distance between greens and tees.
When putting always remember that the greens break hard away from the mountain.
The course has a reputation among the locals as a ball eater - some have even gone as far as to call the course unfair (mostly 5 handicappers who can only break 90 on an easy course with liberal numbers of mulligans). For this reason you can almost always get a tee time for any weekend.
Don't expect to score well your first time playing - come for the beauty and the challenge.
