Escape to the base of the Beartooths and play golf where rushing mountain streams, lakes, and groves of trees will influence your shot selection on most holes. A few holes will remind you of golf in Scotland with tall grasses lining generous fairways. Accuracy is the name of the game at Red Lodge where 100 mile views can make it difficult to keep your eye on the ball!
Trees and water hazards pose a threat on the front nine as you head out from the clubhouse on Hole #1. There are two par 3 holes with substantial lakes that separate the tee from the green. Holes #4 through #9 play alongside two streams and continually cross over them. As you play down Hole #9 you get the full view of the beautiful clubhouse as do the people inside as they watch the action on the course.
The back nine begins with a promising birdie opportunity on Hole #10, but Hole #11 has several water hazards and a well-bunkered green. Holes #12, 13, and 14 are three Scottish style holes with tall grass in the rough and wide, long fairways. Holes #15 through #18 start by dropping 80 feet off the bench down into the Rock Creek valley. A long par 5 plays deceptively uphill along the valley floor. Stopping halfway back up the bench is a short par 3, while Hole #18 finishes on top of the bench playing toward the clubhouse.
