New Provo East Bay Golf Course design gets a tweak, 'ticks all the boxes'

It appears the commotion over hole alterations to the East Bay Golf Course have been smoothed out with a newly released design that Provo hopes satisfies the golfing community’s needs to a tee.

After a rough beginning, which included negotiations, public protests and alarmed golfers and City Council members, the golf course and the proposed Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine are now on a win-win course.

“After weeks of alterations we are finally ready to show it off,” according to comments on the East Bay Facebook page. “We feel these changes will enhance the facility and your experience with a smoother routing,
better variety of holes and a short course/practice facility unseen in Utah.”


Scott Henderson, director of the Provo parks and recreation, said there has been some small tweaking to the original design, and that helps with flow of playing from golf hole to another.

Henderson said there is everything from newly-lit areas for more night play to several other amenities added to the course.

“This is the most exciting project this golf course will ever see,” Henderson said. “It ticks all the boxes.”

Henderson said the design team included a citizen’s committee for people who use the facility and gave a lot of input.

“They came up with better flow,” Henderson said.

The golf course is being reconfigured and will be completed in spring 2020. That will signal the beginning of construction on the Noorda College.

The college is set on 21 acres on the northwestern portion of the golf course. In order for the school to locate at the golf course, the three-hole redesign was needed...

I like it. As a golfer I have to say that #6 looks like it's going to be loads of fun. I got my first and only hole-in-one on #3 there last year. #3 will now be #16.

New Latter-day Saint temple to be built in Orem

A new temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be built in Orem, the church announced Saturday night.

I am hoping it will be built on the old Cascade golf course on the foothills of Timpanogos at the mouth of Provo Canyon

Agree Danske, there are a number of excellent locations that would be stunning along that eastern bench of Orem. I'm anxious to see what design they choose for this particular Temple. Very happy with both designs of the Saratoga Springs and Layton structures. The Orem Temple could go either way or maybe something more along the line of Payson. It seems though that the decision-makers are now going with less interpretive designs and more of literal historic. I think I like it when a design doesn't straddle historic and contemporary, but embraces either or.
