Oquirrh Hills Now An 18-hole Championship Golf Course
On June 18 in 2007, Tooele City announced a new era of golf at the Oquirrh Hills golf course. A grand opening ceremony ushered in the new, long awaited, back nine holes, which made Oquirrh Hills an 18-hole championship facility.
Tooele City Mayor Patrick H. Dunlavy, Head Professional Christian Scott, Superintendent Brian Roth, Course Architect Andy Johnson and the Tooele City Council unveiled the new back nine at 8:30 a.m. on June 18th. The celebration was be held on the tenth tee box for the opening ceremony with a few words from VIPs.
Many city dignitaries, past course champions, past high school state champions and even a few of the "originals" from the front nine's construction were on hand to celebrate this big event in Tooele City golf history.
Home of the historic Western Amateur and many legendary Utah club professionals, Oquirrh Hills golf course has a celebrated significance within the Utah golf scene. The new addition was designed to blend seamlessly into the old course.
"My goal (for the back nine) ... was to create an old-school course with modern-day challenges," said architect Andy Johnson.
Oquirrh Hills became the home of Tooele High School's first golf team in the early 1960s and nurtured two state championship teams in 1977 and 1998. Rob Jensen, the coach of the 1998 team, was a member of the first White Buffaloes squad. Paul Griffith, who played for the 1977 team, died the year before his son, Brock, helped Tooele win the 1998 title.
"It is so much fun playing a golfer-friendly layout like the original nine at Oquirrh Hills that I wanted to continue that fun throughout the back nine," said Johnson, an award-winning architect based in the upscale Colorado mountain town of Edwards.
While the new nine, sitting under the "T" on the mountain, seems to have a links look, that's only temporary. With the planting of 425 trees, the new nine "will age gracefully," according to Johnson, as the trees "grow to match the feel and strategy of the original nine."
Many folks deserve credit for their role in the new nine's development, but as City Council member John Hansen said, "Nothing happens unless the mayor starts the ball rolling. Finally, things seemed to come together."
