About Cascade Fairways Golf Course, CLOSED 2013

Cascade Fairways Public Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Orem, Utah.

Construction began on Cascade Fairways in the Spring of 1967. William H. Neff, a Salt Lake City golf course architect, designed the course. The course opened in May of 1968. Green fees were $1 for adults, $0.75 for seniors and $0.50 for juniors.

The first clubhouse and equipment shed consisted of a World War II POW barracks. In 1970, the present day clubhouse was opened to the public.

Front nine (Valley Course): par-35, 3,185 yards

Back nine (Mountain Course):par-36, 2,870 yards

18 Holes: par-71 6,055 yards

The course closed in 2013. The $800,000 clubhouse is scheduled to be demolished, and the giant poles that support the driving range nets will disappear. The course, located near the mouth of Provo canyon will become the site of city soccer fields and a gated residential community.

Cascade used to be a nice community par 35 nine-hole layout. When a school and housing development gobbled up much of the ninth hole and others, the owner decided to venture into the mountains north of the original 9 and expand to an 18 hole layout. It didn't work. The billy-goat back is ridiculous, featuring everything from blind tee shots to postage-stamp greeens to a drivable par five. With so many above-average championship 18 hole layouts now in the area for about the same price, Cascade is relegated to date-golf for students and old folks getting in their last few rounds before the big 19th hole in the sky. Avoid Cascade.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Worse than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
