Forest Dale was built in 1905 as the Salt Lake Country Club and holds the distinction of being the oldest golf course in Utah. Forest Dale has undergone several phases of renovation since the City acquired the course in 1935. A major redesign in 1986 maintained the tradition while transporting the course into a contemporary test of golf. Today, it's a challenging course with several small, original table-top greens that place a premium on accuracy.
The Forest Dale clubhouse remains a landmark in Salt Lake City and has been placed on the Utah Historical Register. The clubhouse was renovated and restored in 1994, preserving the mission-style architecture of prominent Utahn Frederick Albert Hale. The clubhouse facility now serves as the home of Salt Lake City's Golf Division and includes a large public meeting room with the original Forest Dale fireplace.
