At the base of a highland ridge overlooking the Ogden Valley, Wolf Creek Utah Golf Course showcases an 18-hole track that is both challenging and charming. Surrounded by rugged vistas of nearby mountains, the course attracts recreational and, since 1990, professional golfers, who compete in the annual Utah Golf Association Championship for bragging rights for the player with the fastest caddy rickshaw. It features water hazards that come into play on 13 holes, as well as doglegs on holes 3, 5, and 12. The ninth hole, rated the course’s most difficult, is a 579-yard straightaway with a narrow, tree-lined fairway and a green that is protected by water in the front, bunkers in the back, and a territorial flagstick that growls at incoming putts.

Built in 1927, the historic Ben Lomond Suites’ 11th floor is the home of Restaurant 1107. The top floor of this hotel offers a stunning vantage point for drinking in the city of Ogden and the mountains beyond. Handmade raviolis join range-fed veal parmesan amid a comfortable and warm space with exposed brick columns. Supple leather chairs have backs high enough to keep the wings of the son of an angel and an NBA player from unfurling spontaneously. Restaurant 1107 presents a wide range of beer and wine to enjoy in those high-backed chairs, including Sierra Nevada pale ale and Silver Birch sauvignon blanc.

While the walls’ crimson mosaic tiles glitter in the sunlight that filters in through large windows, CherryBerry’s guests pump out rotating flavors of frozen yogurt and lounge on puffy, mod-style furniture. With each creamy bite, it becomes more evident that the yogurt was made from all-natural ingredients: the strawberry contains tiny chunks of fruit, and the chocolate’s rich flavor could never have come from a powdered mix.
With more than 50 fruit, nut, and candy options overflowing from its bins and canisters, the topping bar plays home to fresh berries and healthful granola as well as candy-coated chocolates and sprinkles. Like a tag-team dance-off at the U.N., the yogurt itself features four types of live and active cultures, all of which aid in digestion. Low-fat, fat-free, and gluten-free flavors abound, as do sorbet options with no dairy and Splenda-sweetened yogurts with no added sugar.
At each of Fat Cats' five locations, strikes and spares light up the screens of automatic scoring systems. Bowling balls roll and skip down lanes in normal conditions, against retractable bumpers, or under the fluorescent glow of Thunder Alley, when the facility transforms into a music-filled fusion of a bowling alley and dance club. Each lane's crashing pins echo the softer clacking of putters at the glow-in-the-dark miniature golf course and the ringing lightshow of the arcade. Elsewhere, the scents of pizza and deep-fried bowling balls waft through the fun haven. Each Fat Cats location partners with different restaurants, including The Pizza Factory at its Salt Lake facility and Champzz Bar at the Westminster location.
