More Golf in Great Falls

We’re back in Great Falls and we decided to play the two municipal courses again – Anaconda Hills Golf Course and Eagle Falls Golf Course. Connie Caouette, golf pro at the two courses, played with us this time. This is a great photo of her teeing off on the back nine at Anaconda Hills. When […]

Second 9 Holes at Judith Shadows

It’s time for round two at Judith Shadows Golf Course in Lewistown. This time we played the back 9 holes, the day before we played the front 9. Oh, wait a minute. It appears we are playing OFF the golf course! We really learned the “OB” term during this 9 holes. Our morning round of golf […]

Lewistown Has Two Golf Courses

We are at our third golf course of the day – Judith Shadows Golf Course near Lewistown. When I started planning this extensive golf tour of north central Montana I had a perfect plan to golf 27 holes a day – one 9 hole course and one 18 hole course. Well, by time you work around […]

Two More Photos of Pine Meadows

The problem with shooting so many photos is that I want to share them! This photo taken on Pine Meadows Golf Course in Lewistown is a nod to major league pitcher Jim Perry and the celebrity charity golf tournament held annually at Pine Meadows. The sign on the bridge says “Jim Perry Crossing”. It’s a […]

Great Golf at Pine Meadows

Pine Meadows Golf Course in Lewistown has some interesting challenges. First of all, there are pine trees, plenty of them, and I know the sound a golf ball makes when it hits one! I liked the surrounding geographic features you could see from the course though. I kept asking our local golfer Scott Irvin which mountain range we were looking at […]

Lewistown’s Pine Meadows Golf Course

It’s a pretty drive just getting to Pine Meadows Golf Course near Lewistown and the course was a treat for the eyes too. This area of central Montana was almost overwhelmed by moisture this spring. As a result, even in September things were still looking lush and green. Pine Meadows, formerly the Elks Club Golf course, sits up on a hillside. To […]

Food Worth Going To Jail For

That’s what the sign in front of Jail house Pizza says – Food Worth Going To Jail For! With a marquee like that we decided it was worth a stop. This little restaurant in Harlowton, MT is called Jailhouse Pizza but the menu offers much more than pizza. The business opened the end of December 2010 so they […]

Are We Bird Hunting Or Golfing?

One thing that has amazed me on our golf journey through north central Montana is how much time people spend searching for their golf ball. One of the guys hit a ball OB (out of bounds…yes, I’ve learned the lingo!) and we all went looking for it. In what looked like an empty field next to the Jawbone […]

I’ll Explain The Jawbone Name

Our next stop on our golf journey is the Jawbone Creek Golf Course in Harlowton, MT. That’s a unique name for the course. The story I heard was that the developer of the short-lived Jawbone Railroad was good at flapping his jaws but not that great on paying his bills. He may not have left […]

A Perfect Putt and a Soothing Soak

At Arrowhead Meadows Golf Course in White Sulphur Springs we had to absorb some pretty strong and chilly wind. I was bundled for the weather and I wondered how it would affect my putting. Well, based on some of my putts it wouldn’t make much difference but I do want to hit the ball in […]
