Golf

Golf Season: The golf course opens the first week in May and is open daily through October 15.
Practice Facility: The practice facility is open year-round.

Ours is a golf course that brings our members back, season after season, and for good reason: our Tom Fazio-designed layout is one-of-a-kind in the West. An 18-hole experience that is unrivaled for sheer scenic beauty, imaginative risk-and-reward play, and an emotional connection with our Rocky Mountain setting that forges a fierce loyalty among players. The golf course stretches to 7,028 yards from the championship tees or 4,795 yards from the front tees. Our Par 71 course features five tee boxes per hole, ensuring a playable yet challenging course for golfers of all abilities.

It’s more than our bluegrass fairways winding and weaving through lush forests, or our bentgrass greens with wide-horizon views of Whitefish Lake and the Montana Rockies. It’s more than the wildlife that makes its home here and the direct connection with nature experienced on the course, where you’re far more likely to see deer, elk, moose, or the occasional bear than a house or even another golfer. It’s more than a class-leading practice facility and a team of professionals that are ready with informed instruction, helpful hints, or even your favorite beverage in our Clubhouse bar.

Golf here is a shared experience, a community of camaraderie on and off the course that is enjoyed by a welcoming group of diverse members who adore this spectacular mountainside golf retreat.
