South Mountain is what I'd call a "mountain side links" course. The holes are designed links style with rolling hills and undulations like you'd see in Scotland but the course sits on the side of a mountain. So unlike a Scottish links course, this course has some very big elevation changes. The views of the Salt Lake valley from South Mountain are fantastic. You can see for miles.
The course has five sets of tees for players of all levels. The tips measure out at 7,080 yards but the course can play to what seems to be a much longer yardage than that. If the wind kicks up, the course can become extremely difficult.
Hit your driver straight and long. If you don't, you'll need to bring extra balls. Errant shots which miss the hillsides ouside the fairway will find native areas which seem to gobble up golf balls.
