By Brian Weis

The phrase that gets me excited about a golf course is "elevation changes." When Todd King, Head Golf Professional, invited me out to preview Deer Valley G.C. he didn't have to say too much more after that phrase. He had me shortly after "rolling terrain" and "amazing views."

I booked a tee time a few weeks out and from that moment, I started counting down the days. My excitement grew as I recalled seeing the course numerous times from the freeway and it appeared to be a roller coaster thrill ride.

As I pulled into the parking lot, the hills appeared even bigger from what I witnessed from the freeway. I admit I was giddy before stepping foot on the property. At that moment, I thought I died and went to heaven. What I didn't realize was how much closure I would be after climbing the first hole.

While checking in, I received a four page "Tips from The Proshop" pamphlet that shared local knowledge on how to play each hole. My only advice, grab it and read it twice before playing each hole.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the following slide show will tell the whole story.
