Bountiful is home to a visually stunning Mormon temple that sits on the hills of the city. This large temple of more than 100,000 square feet has the distinction of being only the eighth temple built in Utah. Its large size means that it possesses plentiful room for worship services. In addition, the building offers numerous daily endowments, baptisms, a clothing ministry, and other services of the Mormon religion. As a result, the building, which was dedicated in 1995, provides a seat of religious reverence and nurturing for the many Mormons who live in and around the city.
Bountiful Ridge Golf
Bountiful is also home to a well-regarded golf club. Golf Digest calls the 18-hole Bountiful Ridge Golf Club a best value. While the club's course is high quality, perhaps its most distinguishing feature is the beautiful view of Salt Lake that it provides. The club offers a wide variety of services to satisfy almost any golfer. These services include tee times, golf associations for men, women, and youth, golf lessons for beginners, tournaments, and a restaurant where golfers can relax and refuel with friends. The course is an upscale recreational facility for any Bountiful golf-loving resident.
Bountiful embraces its history with its annual Handcart Days. This heavily attended, two-day festival draws in participants from all around the area to honor the memory of the Mormons who settled the Salt Lake area. Perhaps the biggest event of Bountiful's entire year, the festival's central activities are a large parade and fireworks. In addition, the two days are chock full of other activities, from historical tours of landmark houses to musical and dance performances. Anyone in the Bountiful area can learn more about the history, people, and events that shaped the city and surrounding towns while enjoying fun, relaxing events.
