    Golf in Ogden!

    Ogden is a Great Place for Golfers

    There are an incredible number of golf courses in the Ogden area for players of all levels. The best part is that you can play 9 holes on most of them for less than $15. I am not much of a golfer, but I have been to most of the courses in the area and this page will give you my take on them. This page does not list all of them, but you can follow the links at the bottom of this page for more complete lists.

    The Challenging Courses

    Mount Ogden Golf Course is located in the foothills of Ogden at the top of 30th Street. The address is 1787 Constitution Way. It is one of two Ogden City owned Golf Course and its 18 holes are are difficult to play. The view is beautiful, but narrow fairways lined with thick oak brush means that you will lose lot's of balls if you cannot hit straight. Plan on using a cart if you are not in shape because the course has lots of ups and downs.
