Nibley Park golf course was dedicated on May 20, 1922 on the site of the former Wandamere Amusement Park. Charles W. Nibley purchased the resort in the early 1900s and presented the land to Salt Lake City to be used to create the first public golf course in the state.
On the day of Nibley Park’s dedication Nibley said:
“When I think that this generation and the generations of men and women yet to come shall find healthful enjoyment and rare pleasure here in playing that splendid outdoor Scotch game known as golf, that thought gives me the highest satisfaction and most genuine pleasure.”
The property has been the “gateway to golf” for thousands of players over the last 100 years, with many of Utah’s best players growing up playing the nine-hole track before moving on to professional careers.
The monument installed by the Daughters of Utah Pioneers placed near the practice chipping green along 700 E reads:
“In the early 1860s George and Mary B. Calder built one of the first amusement parks on this spot. They cleared the land with oxen, planted grass and trees and converted a natural spring of water into a lake for boating. It was spanned by a picturesque bridge. A dance pavilion, racetrack, ball park, merry go round and other attractions were built. In the year 1909 it was improved and the name changed to Wandamere. After changing hands several times, Charles W. Nibley purchased the resort and presented it to Salt Lake City for recreational purposes.”
