If you’re looking to experience the best golf courses in Montana, look no further! We’ve researched all the courses and selected the 4 can’t-be-missed options throughout the state. Keep reading to learn more!
1) Old Works Golf Club
Old Works Golf Club has a long and storied history, but it didn’t start as a golf course…it used to be an old smelting factory! Operating since 1884, the factory was soon outnumbered by its competition and lay idle for years until 1989, when the community came together to turn it into a world-class golf course.
The course was designed by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus and has been up and running since the mid-nineties. As you play, you’ll be treated to views of the gorgeous rolling hills and mountains of Montana, as well as some subtle nods to the course’s history. Looking for a bite to eat? You’ll find all sorts of classic American dishes, like the award-winning chili burger at Jack’s Grill.
📍1318 Old Works Drive, Anaconda, MT 59711
