The Crater Springs golf course at Homestead Resort was designed by PGA Senior Tour Professional Bruce Summerhays.
The spectacular course winds through the surrounding Snake Creek Valley and the Wasatch Mountains. The par 72 course
measures 7,040 yards from the back tees and plays 5,091 yards from the forward tees. Blue tees measure 6,524 yards and
the White tees measure 6,057 yards. The golf course slopes 146 from the back tees and 128 from the forward tees. Weather
permitting, Crater Springs is open in mid April through mid October.
Crater Springs has hosted the Utah Section PGA Championship and the Utah State Seniors Championship. In 2014 Crater
Springs will host the Utah State Women’s Senior Championship and the Utah State Amateur Qualifying site.
In an effort to be environmentally sensitive the Crater Springs golf course has taken many steps. We have taken inventory
of all wildlife and developed a general plan to provide space, food, cover, and water for them. We have modified our chemical
applications and left a buffer between fairways and waterways to make sure water is kept clean. We have protected any native
habitat in out of play areas such as prarie grasses and tree snags. We have also expanded our natural areas to enhance habitat
for wildlife and to conserve water and fuel.
We are looking to expand our natural areas even more. Areas in front of tees or on borders can be extended into natural areas.
We have engaged golfers in this program over the years by including bird watching comment cards. We feel strongly that getting
outdoors and reconnecting with nature are among the top reasons why people play golf.
