As an avid golfer, I'm always on the lookout for new golf courses to try. My newest discovery is a recently opened golf community in Heber City that I'm excited to visit!

Red Ledges is a private, four-season recreational development in the beautiful Heber Valley. Not only is it just 10 minutes from the Jordanelle Reservoir, which offers a wide variety of activities, but it's also just a short drive from both the Deer Valley and Park City Mountain resorts. It includes an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, which provides spectacular views of the Wasatch Mountain range. And, in the future, it will also have a nine-hole Nicklaus Design short course. Budding golfers can also visit the Jim McLean Golf School.

Todd Cates, vice-president and project manager, tells me the community will also have plenty of activities for those not interested in golf, such as a Cliff Drysdale Tennis Academy, an equestrian center and a vibrant village center with heated pools, a spa/fitness center, a kid's club, adventure cabin and more. The Provo River near Red Ledges also offers blue-ribbon fly fishing.

Todd says Red Ledges came about gradually. The two owners, Tony Burns and Nolan Archibald, met while in college. Over the years, Tony and Nolan collected nearly 2,000 acres in the Heber Valley that eventually became Red Ledges. Tony developed a long-standing, close relationship with Jack Nicklaus, who designed the golf course. They broke ground in 2007 and the grand opening was held in July 2009.

The development also includes a collection of luxury residential sites for those who would like to call Red Ledges home. Although the rough economy has made selling the properties more challenging, Todd says the owners have taken a proactive approach that has helped the business weather the storm better than most.
