Victory Ranch is a golf, fishing, and ski country club community just outside Kamas, Utah, along the Upper Provo River. Sitting on 6,700 acres, the spirit of the development is a quiet recreational escape: 4,000 acres of backcountry, 18-hold Rees Jones golf course, fly fishing on the famous Provo River, mountain bike trails, shooting facility, fishing and swimming ponds, restaurant, and ski lounge on Main Street. Thursday I’ll be touring the facilities on-site, but in the meantime, let me take you on a quick tour of the owners’ lounge at the base of the Town Lift plaza at Park City Mountain Resort.
The key to Park City’s golf clubs is if they can really specialize with their amenities. Yes, you’re there for the lovely location, nice clubhouse, and great golf. But what else? What if somebody in the family isn’t a golfer? What if you just aren’t in the mood? Are you looking for anything else, such as tennis (Red Ledges), skiing (Talisker), family amenities (Promontory)? Victory Ranch is great at fishing, obviously, but their owners’ lounge right on Main Street at the base of Park City Mountain Resort’s Town Lift really ups their ski game.
Just how close to skiing is it?
