There are those who say Red Lodge is at its best in the summer. They're usually golfers. With a mid-high slope of 126 spread across a generous 160 acres, Red Lodge Mountain Golf Course has enough challenging terrain to keep you on your toes. Add to that several lakes, lots of creek crossings, the occasional July snowstorm, and a neighborhood moose or deer wandering across your fairway, and a day out on the Red Lodge links never feels like the same old thing.
The course opens to the public as soon as the spring snow melts, usually mid-May through Mid-October. Call ahead or just come up to the clubhouse--impromptu tee times rarely require a wait.
Red Lodge Mountain Golf Course hosts several tournaments and special events throughout the year. To get involved, check out our calendar or "like" us on Facebook.
Red Lodge Golf Course MapExpect the unexpected on this beautiful and friendly course. Lots of creeks, lakes, hills, and our “signature” island green on the back 9 make the Red Lodge Mountain Golf Course an experience you’ll long remember.
Trees and water hazards challenge you right from the start as you head out on Hole #1. Next you’ve got two par 3 holes with substantial lakes that separate the tee from the green. Holes #4 through #9 play alongside two streams, crossing them continually.
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 & #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. Hole #15 is everybody's favorite, a unique and fun-to-play “island green”. 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 back toward the clubhouse.
Getting to the Course
Need help getting to where the ball flies as far as the veiws? The Red Lodge Golf Course is located off Highway 78 at 828 Upper Continental Drive. Simply turn off of Highway 212 onto Highway 78 at the Fire Department when you arrive in Red Lodge. Head up the hill, past the Rodeo Grounds andyou will start to see the back nine holes to your right. Turn onto Continental Drive and you'll find the club house and driving range.
