Golf Course Renovation

What will happen?

Wasatch Educational, owner of Rocky Mountain School for Health Professionals is currently preparing to build the new Noorda Osteopathic Medical School along with a new mixed use housing property. The school will occupy the land that holes 10, 11, 12 currently sit on and the mixed use housing will occupy the vacant lot to the north of #12 tee box. As part of the project, the entire East Bay Golf Course will be renovated. This includes, refreshed bank edges, all new bunkers, tees and several other updates to the facility.

Where will the golf course relocate the 3 holes?

The golf course will build three new championship holes to the east of current hole #5. Two par 4’s and one par 3. Included in the design will be an island green. As you can see below, the Executive Course will be rebuilt and re-branded, as well as lighted.

What is the timeline for the entire project?

  • Mid-June 2019- Work will begin on the 3 new holes and the entire golf course.
  • First Snowfall of 2019- Wasatch Educational will begin construction on the Natures Sunshine parcel and holes 10, 11, 12.
  • Opening day of 2020- The 3 new holes and all 18 holes along with the par 3 course will will be open for play.
  • Summer 2020- The entire renovated East Bay Golf Course, new Short Course and Lighted Driving Range will be open.
  • Fall 2020- The new Starting New At Golf Course will open

Frequently asked questions:

  • Will 18 holes always be open? YES! 18 holes will always be open. There will be occasional days that holes will be closed but nothing major.
  • Are we losing the par 3 short course? No, East Bay will always have  a short course after the loss of 10, 11 & 12. As part of the renovation the short course will be rebuilt and renovated for new experience for all ages and skill levels.
  • Are the new holes going to be as good? Kevin Atkinson of Atkinson/Phelps Design will be the course architect. We have no doubt they will be just as good, if not better.
  • How will the golf course be effected? Obviously, with any renovation there will be disruption. We hope you are understanding and enjoy seeing the new changes!
  • Will the routing change? Yes! But, as most of you know… the current East Bay routing is not exactly a dream layout. The new routing will be something that everyone will enjoy! Shorter walks between holes, better directional signage and a much better golf experience!
