Promontory’s conservancy is committed to keeping open space so that all the species that call Park City Utah their home will continue to return each year. A number of birds can be seen on property during the spring season, adding to the beauty of the phrase “more country. more club”. A great time to see the variety of birds is in the mornings and in the early evening. A full listing of the species that make Promontory their home can be found on Promontory’s home page under conservancy.
Sandhills are the most common of all the world’s cranes. A fossil from the Miocene Epoch, some ten million years ago, was found to be structurally the same as the modern sandhill crane. Today, these large birds are found predominately in North America. They range south to Mexico and Cuba, and as far west as Siberia.
Migratory subspecies of sandhill cranes breed in the Northern U.S., Canada, Alaska, and Siberia. Each winter they undertake long southern journeys to wintering grounds in Florida, Texas, Utah, Mexico, and California. En route, more than three-fourths of all sandhill cranes use migratory staging areas in a single 75-mile (120-kilometer) stretch along Nebraska’s Platte River.
Most sandhill cranes live in freshwater wetlands. They are opportunistic eaters that enjoy plants, grains, mice, snakes, insects, or worms. -source. http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/birds/sandhill-crane/
The Salt Lake Tribune reported on the cranes as follows:
In the spring and fall, northern Utah is a great place to see cranes. They stage in many of the wetlands surrounding Great Salt Lake, preparing for migration to New Mexico’s Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.
Thanks to its long neck and stiltlike legs, a sandhill crane measures about 47 inches tall. It has a large heavy bill and a “bustle” of tertial feathers drooping over the tail. The head is set off by a red skin patch on the crown and lores around the eyes. It has a gray body with feathers often stained a reddish hue, the results of rubbing iron rich mud on itself.
Sandhill cranes breed and nest in Utah at higher elevation in meadows and wetlands. They require approximately 200 acres of unbroken land to establish a successful breeding territory. The Swaner Eco Center in Park City is such a haven with 1,200 acres of subalpine meadow available to them and many other birds and mammals. Similar to Swaner, property around Promontory is a open space where many foul nest.
Promontory has been lucky enough to have the right refuge for these beautiful sandhill cranes. You can see the cranes doing their spring dancing in the wetland area as you approach the West side of the Promontory property. Enjoy the view from afar.

Revive Life talks about why Golf is good for your Brain!
1) Increased Blood Flow To The Brain
Increased circulation promotes increased blood flow to the brain. Whenever your body is in motion, your brain benefits by the increased blood flow. Next time you hit the course, walk a few holes rather than driving them. The extra steps can go a long way towards stimulating your brain fitness and increasing your energy.
Exercise your creative side. You don’t have to be Tiger Woods to benefit from some simple visualization techniques. By imagining your swing, putt, or overall form, you’re exercising your right brain, which is responsible for creativity . Plus, visualization can have a positive effect on the end results of your game.
No matter how serious or fun your conversations are on the course, a 2008 study showed that simply socializing with others increased cognitive function. Whether your next round is intended to seal a business deal or relax over the weekend, make sure to chat it up just not during your buddy’s hole-winning putt.
4) Vision Work Out
When you golf, you not only have to focus on the ball while it’s at your feet, but also as it flies over the green. Therefore, you’re giving your eyes a visual workout and stimulating the tracking functions in your brain. Lose sight of the ball after your swing? No worries, you’ll still get a workout as you look for it in the grass or the ruff!
5) Positive Affirmations
Many golfers give themselves positive reinforcement during the round. Whether you say it to yourself (“I will make this putt”) or out loud as a bet amongst your friends, positive affirmations can lead to increased confidence and self esteem.
Golf is often referred to as a game that requires excellent coordination. Whether it’s hand-eye, repeated precision strokes, or balance as you complete your swing, all of these practices exercise your cerebellum – one of the areas of your brain responsible for coordination.
7) Sharpen Your Focus
By concentrating on the ball and imagining your swing, you are training your brain to focus. The golf course tends to be a fairly quiet place, but you still have to block out some surrounding noise and movement. The more you practice, the easier it becomes to control your attention and thought processing.
No matter where you hit the ball, you are going to have to strategize to get the ball into the hole. This not only requires the use of geometry, but also analysis of environmental conditions and strength. This problem solving practice is a great left brain workout.
9) Self Esteem boost
A 2003 study showed that the brains of people with a low sense of worth were more likely to shrink than those with high self esteem. Poor results on memory and learning tests were a result of the shrinkage. Finishing a tough round of golf gives you a sense of completion and a nice boost to your esteem – no matter how you scored (ok, sometimes it’s tied to the score).
Laughter releases good endorphins. Endorphins boost your brain! It’s that simple…
Next time you want to find a fun and physical way to boost your brain power, head over to the course. Grab some friends, your best imagination and problem-solving skills – and hit the green. Cart optional.
Promontory offers two award winning courses that are sure to be a great workout for your brain! With rolling hills, water and long stretches of green, coming to play as a golf member at Promontory proves to be a lifestyle many look forward to each spring. With the opening of the Promontory courses, you will find a healthy and happy experience on our courses!

Four-Season Mountain Communities Where You Can Have it All
Luxurious Alternatives to Ski-In, Ski-Out
CONTACT: Alan Rosenberg – 541-778-8949
Summary: With some of the most luxurious mountain lifestyle communities providing convenient slope-side lodges and “Easy-Button” transportation to and fro, second-home owners are enjoying the best of both worlds.
But when the Orlando, Florida couple, who enjoy golf and tennis, decided to add summer weeks to their vacation schedule the slope-side locale no longer made sense.
“It’s nice in winter, but why should we live high on the side of a mountain at other times of the year and have to travel a half hour to enjoy an activity?” How, they wondered, how could they have it all?
They found an answer at Promontory, a luxury vacation home club and community 20 minutes from slopes, a few thousand feet lower in elevation, where it’s easier to breathe and sleep, and on the “sunny side of the valley” with panoramic views of all three ski resorts.
“That’s when it started clicking for us,” says Mark. “It made so much sense. At Promontory, we’re two minutes from both of the golf courses, the tennis courts, the clubhouses and the health club.
“What sealed the deal for us” was the club’s Alpine Lodge, with its lockers and plush living-room-like setting—it also serves food and drink—steps from the Silver Lake lift at Deer Valley, one of the country’s top-rated resorts. A concierge is on hand to serve members’ needs. And the club’s private shuttle, a restored antique “Jammer” bus that once toured visitors through Yellowstone Park, chauffeurs them to and fro. “It’s not quite ski-in, ski-out, but it’s charming and convenient. We can’t imagine a more satisfying compromise,” says Mark.
“Marcy even started calling the arrangement her ‘Easy Button.” For the couple—he’s 61 and she’s 60—it made so much sense that Mark recently sold his business so they could retire to Park City full time.
At Promontory, the ski lodge concept was no afterthought, says managing director Rich Sonntag. “It was integral to our plans,” he says.
In fact, the lodge, designed to match the club’s contemporary mountain ranch theme, was the first Promontory Club amenity constructed in 2001, before the Pete Dye-designed golf course was opened and before any homes were built on the 11-square-mile property. (A Jack Nicklaus course was added a few years ago.)
“Our concept called for a real four-season lifestyle experience for Promontory’s second homeowners, and it was important to demonstrate how it would work,” says Sonntag.
While marketing focus groups clarified the need for the facility—parents, for instance, expressed a desire for a comfortable place to spend time while the kids were taking extra runs—Sonntag didn’t have to go that far to know Promontory was on the right track.
“My wife Janice would tell me she imagined a cozy living room where she could have a personal locker and a clean restroom, a place where she could leave her glasses and her New York Times and know they wouldn’t walk away.”
Just as the Casp and Sonntag families have found Promontory, Park City Utah to be their luxurious mountain lifestyle, you can as well when you tour our 4,000 acres of private mountain property. Visit our sales office by calling us: 1-888-458-6600 or 1-435-333-4600

The Arts through Youth theater teaches empathy, team work, creativity and self expression. Promontory’s Art camps are all about fun with the natural outcome of social change and a new awareness from our young people. Coordinating with Park City’s Egyptian Theater, the kids at Promontory participate in Improv and Production camps. Youth Director, Olivia Najafi will introduce the children to a fun twist of Cinderella at the premier camp of the summer called Broadway Bound. Children always love movie maker’s camp and this year will prove to be another year filled with chills and thrills as they produce, direct and edit their own Promontory movie.
An article in the Huffington Post, written by Lauren Gunderson, explains why Youth Theater can change the world. She writes, “We don’t understand each other, and we don’t want to. But theater invites us — no, forces us — to empathize. As my friend Bill English of San Francisco’s SF Playhouse says, theater is like a gym for empathy. It’s where we can go to build up the muscles of compassion, to practice listening and understanding and engaging with people that are not just like ourselves. We practice sitting down, paying attention and learning from other people’s actions. We practice caring.”
Promontory believes that creativity comes out of play and the Arts is one way that youth can enjoy their community as they learn expression, creativity and most of all empathy.
