One of Victory Ranch’s greatest and most coveted attributes is its 7,600 yards of high country, complete with bent grass greens and fairways, rough bluegrass and tall fescue grass lining its boundaries. Here, the Rees Jones Golf Course is both a spectacle to the eye and a challenge to one’s skills, residing in a setting that nearly rivals the game itself.
In a recent interview with Robb Report, acclaimed golf course architect Rees Jones chats about his newest project, Danzante Bay—located in Loreto, Mexico—and his process of creating the world’s most sought-after courses. As expected, a resort course in Mexico is rather disparate from one in Utah, yet Rees Jones’ design philosophy remains the same. “You need to build something that will challenge the best players in the world but be playable for the average golfer,” he told the lifestyle magazine. As such, it must be demanding yet feasible; beautiful yet architecturally precise. Rees Jones never fails to deliver, which is why he prevails as one of the most preeminent American architects.
Just as Danzante Bay features panoramic ocean and mountain vistas, the Rees Jones Golf Course at Victory Ranch captivates with its astounding environment. “I consider its course to be one of the more spectacular in the West,” says Jones. “Its rugged topography created an opportunity for me to design a golf course that is dramatic in every respect. Whether you look up or down, the scenery is stunning. From the picturesque views of Deer Valley to the calming waters of the Jordanelle Reservoir in the valley below, you know you are in a special place.”
All of us at Victory Ranch want to congratulate Rees Jones on his latest triumph, and we feel honored to boast one of his most renowned products.
