Talisker golf course earns top ranking

The O’Meara Signature Course at Tuhaye, part of Talisker Club, has been rated as one of the top 10 best new private golf courses in America in the January 2007 issue of "Golf Digest" magazine. To date, Tuhaye is the only course in Utah to ever be rated as one of America’s best new private courses. "Golf Digest," considered the number one golf magazine with a circulation of 1.6 million, has chosen top new courses annually since 1983.

Winners are determined by a panel of more than 800 low-handicap golfers who judge courses in five categories: shot values, design variety, resistance to scoring, memorability, and aesthetics. Tuhaye was one of only two courses in the Rocky Mountains to be designated as a top new golf course.
