The Railroad in Provo played a large part in the origins of Timpanogos Golf Club. The new Timp Golf Club pays homage to that history. Hundreds of ties dot the course with only a few marked by the S Iron.
WHY THE S IRON?
In 1927 the Union Pacific Railroad hosted their annual Athletic Carnival in Provo. The national athletic event brought people by rail from all over the country. The First Ward Pasture site hosted the first championship golf event in Provo and one of the first in Utah.
An S Iron bands a splitting railroad tie together. As East Bay began to split over time, the citizens of Provo banded together to show their support of their course. Eventually, Timpanogos was reborn with the help of the original Union Pacific ties. The alternate S Iron logo represents all those who have supported and continue to support golf in Provo for nearly 100 years.
