Red Ledges breaks ground on course

Red Ledges, a planned recreational community in the Heber Valley, broke ground last week on its 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Jack Nicklaus, who is the first founding member of Red Ledges, officially announced the course. Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr., Heber City Mayor David Phillips, M. Anthony Burns, managing owner of Red Ledges and former Ryder System CEO, and project manager Todd R. Cates joined Nicklaus in the groundbreaking ceremony.

"Numerous factors are evaluated before selecting a site for a Signature Course, with every detail from topography to scenery considered," said Nicklaus. "Red Ledges provides the opportunity to combine our team’s vision with dramatic terrain to create what we hope will be a challenging yet playable course and a memorable golf experience for everyone. We are confident Red Ledges could be one of the finest courses in the West."

The 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course will be located at the proposed Red Ledges development, along with a Nicklaus design nine-hole short course. Red Ledges will encompass more than 1,200 homes across nearly 2,000 acres in the gated community.
