Arnold Palmer designed the course in 1981 around East Canyon Creek. I drive past the course every day and it is truly beautiful with its gently rolling hills and meandering creek and bridges. But I’m not a golfer and for the first 12 years I lived in Jeremy Ranch, I never set foot in the Club.
Then we found out about the Social Membership. Our family has had golf memberships at both Promontory and Glenwild. I will be the first to tell you that the Jeremy Ranch Golf and Country Club’s (JRGCC) restaurant does not have the ambiance of either facility or the panoramic views found at Park Meadows Golf Club. But what it does have is a $100/year Social Membership. Yep, that’s not a typo.
If you live on the north side of Park City (Summit Park, Jeremy Ranch, Pinebrook, or Kimball Junction), or if your commute takes you past the Jeremy Ranch exit, you owe it to yourself to check out the Club. The restaurant, “Palmers” is open year round. You can order a $14 Waygu burger or get fancy and try the fish or steak. There is often live entertainment on weekends and specials during the week like Thursday night Prime Rib. Club dining is also available at lunch year round.
In the summer, the “Pier Bar” can’t be beat. The view overlooking Arnold Palmer’s course is one of the prettiest in all of Park City. And JRGCC has year round activities for the whole family, like Santa Claus, Easter Egg Hunt, Mother’s Day Brunch, Trivia, and summer concerts. The golf course is groomed for Nordic Skiing in the winter. Sometimes during snow storms or the Sundance Film Festival, I’ll run in and grab food to go.
One thing is certain, it’s almost impossible for me to set foot in the Club and not run into someone I know. While that drives my family nuts, I love that part about the Club.
If you haven’t checked out the JRGCC in awhile (or ever), I highly recommend it. It is truly a neighborhood gem.
