Golf Tee Up in Glacier Country

Tee Up in Glacier Country

Watching your golf ball sail through the air against a backdrop like ours is pure delight. Here in Montana's Glacier Country, golfing comes with a rare combination of stunning scenery, renowned courses and affordability. Plus, with a perfectly mild shoulder season, our courses are open longer than some of our counterparts. From public to semi-private and leisurely to challenging, Montana is home to a handful of the most undeniably beautiful golf courses in the United States, perfect for golf vacations or an afternoon on the green. Wondering where to golf in Montana? Courses in the Missoula area typically open before courses in the Flathead Valley. The Flathead Valley has been named a "Top 50 Golf Course Destination" by Golf Digest. To play as many rounds as possible, pre-schedule tee times (for a small fee) through the Northwest Montana Golf Association.
