Promontory, Utah
Promontory in Box Elder County, Utah, United States is an area of high ground 32 mi (51 km) west of Brigham City, Utah and 66 mi (106 km) northwest of Salt Lake City. Rising to an elevation of 4,902 feet (1,494 m) above sea level, it lies to the north of the Promontory Mountains and the Great Salt Lake. It is notable as the location of Promontory Summit where the First Transcontinental Railroad in the United States was officially completed on May 10, 1869.
By the summer of 1868, Central Pacific had completed the first rail route through the Sierra Nevada and was now moving down towards the Interior Plains and the line of the Union Pacific. More than 4,000 workers, of whom two thirds were Chinese, had laid more than 100 mi (160 km) of track at altitudes above 7,000 ft (2,100 m). In May 1869, the railheads of the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific railroads finally met at Promontory Summit, Utah Territory. A specially-chosen Chinese and Irish crew had taken only 12 hours to lay the final 10 miles (16 km) of track in time for the ceremony.

On June 21, the Park City, Utah club celebrated the summer solstice and the longest day of the year by extending its Jack Nicklaus-designed Painted Valley golf course to 8,357 yards for a one-day event. Pin locations were tucked to the back of the greens and the tee boxes were moved back as far as possible to add 300 yards to the course, making it the longest course in the U.S. for a single day.
