Eagle Mountain Golf Course, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Brigham City, Utah.
Eagle Mountain Golf Course first opened for play in 1989. The course was designed by William Neff.
Eagle Mountain has four sets of tee boxes to accomodate and challange all levels of golfers. The distances, ratings and slopes for the tee boxes are: gold, 6,781 yards (72.0/119); blue, 6,133 (68.1/113); middle, 5,518 (65.4/108); and forward 4,767 (104/64.3).
The front nine is very hilly; the back nine is less sloped and longer. The course has some of the largest greens in the state. At Eagle Mountain, you will enjoy great golf and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. You're also going to see some old Army buildings along the way through the course. These are leftover structures from a World War II-era hospital that used to stand in the area.
No. 6 is considered by some to be the most difficult. It's a par-4 (387 yards from the back and 363 from the front). Your tee shot is critical. You need to lay up in front of a ravine or gamble and go over it. If you can cross the ravine with your drive, then you only have a short shot into the green. Lay up and, you have a long iron on your approach shot. Of course land in the ravine and call it unplayable. tee up again, hitting three with the same decision and and ravine facing you.
No. 7, is their famous â€œwater-tank hole.â€ The tank is painted with a golfing mural. This par-4 measures 426 yards from the back and 409 from the front. Be careful of the out of bounds area to the left. If you go down the hill to the right, you could end up in a water hazard. The green is guarded on the right by two bunkers. Also on the right is a steep embankment. The green is also the biggest on the golf course, 52 yards deep. So you could choose from any of three different irons, depending on the pin location.
No. 8 is a picturesque par-3, measuring 200 yards from the back and 150 from the forward tees. You'll be hitting back toward the pro shop with a beautiful view of the mountains,â€ Marx said. Water comes into play. The green is almost entirely surrounded by a U-shaped pond, so the water is in play for all golfers.
No. 12 is a par-4 that plays at 448 yards from the back and 397 yards from the front. This hole has a dramatic drop in elevation with a slope below the tee boxes that really makes your tee shot fly. If you get a good tee shot, it's a great place to score, to get ahead or catch up,. If you slice, there are trees and uneven ground to the right. The green has two grass bunkers surrounding it, but they're east to avoid. The tough part of the hole is reading the green. Parts of it slope toward the mountains.
No. 13 is a medium-long par-5 (568 yards from the back and 506 from the front) but the long hitters do find the green reachable in two because this is a downhill hole.
No. 16, a par-4 dogleg left, measuring 415 yards from the back and 378 from the forward tees. There are four ponds to contend with. The green is partly surrounded â€“ in the back and on the left â€“ by a pond. The green is deep â€“ 40 yards. So it's a must to know where the pin is before taking your approach shot. A big pine tree on the front right also guards the green against errant shots. Yes, pond on left, tree on right,
No. 18, a par-3 that measures 223 yards from the back and 183 from the front. It is considered to be one of the toughest finishing holes in Utah. There's a bunker in front of the green that's 90 yards long and three grass bunkers around the green.
Eagle Mountain sits at the mouth of Sardine Canyon just twenty minutes north of Ogden in Brigham City, Utah.

Layout has some hazards crossing the fairway on 2-3 holes. Need local knowledge to avoid some hidden water hazards.

This course is nice. Layout can get tight around houses. A few blind shots. It doesn't seem to play as long as it's listed. No drink cart. A little more $, it's hard to justify golfing this course when Bountiful Ridge is down the road, in better shape and cheaper.
