Description

Welcome to the Anaconda coutry club!

Anaconda Country Club is nestled just outside of Anaconda, Montana and features 3,020 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 35. The 18-hole yardage for the course is 6223 yards, par 71 for men, and 5500 yards, par 73 for women.

The 9 hole golf course offers an 18 hole feel with differing tee boxes set for your ‘front’ nine and ‘back’ nine giving each hole a new twist for your second time around. Mill Creek comes into direct play on several holes besides the 3 man-made ponds that make this course unique and challenging. League play is available to members in the Men’s League, Women’s League, Senior League and Couple’s League.

The club also includes a driving range, a chipping & putting green, event facilities, pro shop, and the friendliest 19th hole in the state. So, if you are in the mood for practicing your swing, planning your party, or just taking in the beautiful scenery with some friendly locals, the Anaconda Country Club is the place to be.

History

The dream to build the Anaconda Country Club came to fruition in 1915 as an 18 hole,
sand green facility. It took 3 years to build and contour fairways and greens. It
officially opened in 1917 and hosted it’s first state tournament in 1922. The Anaconda
Company owned a copper smelter in Anaconda, Montana and built the course for it’s
employees. The club house consisted of a dining room, kitchen, bar, pro shop and
apartment. In 1954, members decided to plant grass greens and reduce the number
of holes to nine to keep costs in check. Within 30 days of the idea, the money was
raised, the greens were built, and seeding started. The new green opened for play
on August 29, 1954. The Anaconda Company maintained the course and the club house
until the company closed in 1981 and turned the club over to it’s membership in
1982. Before the club was transferred, local county residents were allowed to golf
a maximum of 3 times as non-members. In approximately 1990, the club went semi-private
and allowed non-members of Deer Lodge County to unlimited golf when paying green
fees.

Over the years, the amenities of the course have matured with over 50 cottonwoods,
willow and pine trees not to mention the ponds and creek running through the course.
Since it became a semi-private club, the club’s operation has been overseen by a
board of directors. Several golf pros have served their time in making the Anaconda
Country Club a great place to golf. Ken Blume has served as the Course Superintendent
for the past 11 years. Mark Torney, current PGA professional, has been with the
club for 20 years. Through their ability and leadership, they have helped make the
Anaconda Country Club a repeat destination and has made the ’19th’ Hole a fun place
to be.
