The BHS Senior, Max Thackeray, turned in a 66 at Bonneville Golf Course today. Bonneville Golf Course is renowned for its hilly terrain and challenging greens. It is one of the most popular 18-hole golf courses in Utah. Situated on the East Bench of Salt Lake City, just five minutes away from the heart of downtown, the golf course offers awe-inspiring views of both the surrounding mountains and the entire Salt Lake Valley.
The most difficult hole is the fifth. The 457-yard monster goes uphill and requires nearly a 300-yard drive for a clear shot at the green. The signature hole, and next most difficult, is the ninth, a 470-yard par 4. A tee shot to a downhill landing area is followed by a second shot, usually from a downhill lie, that requires a carry across a wide ravine to the green.
For those in the know, 6 under par is a respectable score at Bonneville Golf Course. Congratulations, Mr. Thackeray.
