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 get to the course you drive along the area known as Brewery Flats, and Big Spring Creek meanders through that. There are hiking trails, parking areas and fishing access sites all along here. So, after that golf game you could test your flycasting skills or pick up some more exercise on the trail.
Local golfer Scott Irvin met us at Pine Meadows and our first order of business was to apologize for running late. We packed a lot of golf and quite a few miles into our itinerary to be able to play as much golf as possible and this time we were behind schedule.
It was mid afternoon and Pine Meadows was fairly busy. Scott had adjusted our tee time and everyone was ready to hit the links. It was a perfect weather day and we were excited to test our skills on this 9 hole course.
My golf buddies were very impressed with Pine Meadows Golf Course.
This mature course was challenging and it was in excellent shape. By time you toss in a fall temp of about 75 degrees and pure sunshine in Montana’s Big Sky – it just doesn’t get much better than that.
Pine Meadows Golf Course also holds a special place in my mind because I had another perfect putt! Perhaps all that coaching and practice has paid off. Or, it could have been luck or maybe it was just an easy shot. I’ll choose to remember that my skills were progressing.
I’ll share some more photos of Pine Meadows in a future blog post so keep watching!
