Red Ledges - Heber, Utah - Park City Real Estate
The Red Ledges community in Heber City, Utah is a master planned community designed around a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. The community covers over 2000 acres (it actually nearly doubled the size of Heber City when the area was annexed into the city). The master plan calls for nearly 1200 homes in a recreational focused community.
While the golf course is the current centerpiece of this community development (the full 18 hole course is open and there are future plans for a nine-hole short course, in time the focus will change. The golf courses will provide a beautiful backdrop nestled in the red rock somewhat desert like terrain. The village center portion of the Red Ledges community is designed to be the centerpiece of the development.
Excavation work has begun for the swim club and fitness facilities with hopes that this portion of the community will be open in 2011. The village center will be walking distance to the planned Cliff Drysdale tennis academy. It is slated to be the first if its kind in the western United States. The tennis center will feature hard courts and clay courts indoors and outdoors.
The Red Ledges community already has many public equestrian trails running around the community's boundaries and throughout the 400 acres of open space. There are plans for a full equestrian center to be located on the south eastern end of Red Ledges. The equestrian center will feature indoor and outdoor riding arenas as well as horse boarding for club members.
A private ski chalet at Deer Valley Resort is also in the works for the Red Ledges community owners. Deer Valley, the number one rates ski resort in North America is only 10 minutes from Red Ledges. Snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross country skiing will also be available to Red Ledges owners during the winter months.
There is a (Jim) McLean Golf Academy also slated for the Red Ledges community. This teaching academy should draw students to the area from around the world. The driving range and short game facility are already in and ready for use. From the looks of it, it will provide a great working space for the teaching academy.
All owners at Red Ledges will have a lifestyle membershipť providing access to club amenities other than golf including: tennis, swim club & fitness facilities, spa, ski lodge, adventure cabin, kids™ camp, and clubhouse dining. There will be only 400 golf memberships. So while there may be 1200 residences when the development is complete, only a minority of owners will have golf memberships. The overall community will provide a much broader four season focus.
The build out of a community of this size could take as much as 20 years to complete, so Red Ledges is truly in its infancy at this time.
