The Draper Valley Golf Club features an open and challenging golf course. A player will be able to hit every club in their bag. The fairways are well groomed, and the greens are undulating. Water hazards (lakes or branches) come into play on seven holes. The Signature Hole is #9, a 511-yard, par 5, requiring a second (and maybe third) approach shot over both a marsh and water hazard to the green.
