About Preston Golf and Country Club
Preston Golf and Country Club is located at the north end of Cache Valley. PGCC is located about 12 miles north of the Utah Border and is surrounded by mountains on the east and west. Preston is a gateway to many outdoor recreational activities, with many lakes, streams, mountain trails, snow machine, and utv trails located just minutes away. Preston is a quiet community with a population of approximately 6500 people but is growing rapidly in the last several years. This quiet community is an excellent place to raise a family or a great place to retire. The golf course typically closes due to snow around Thanksgiving and will reopen between the last week of February and the last week of March depending on the winter.
