Blue Mountain – 18 Baskets
The walker’s course. This location spreads out across a big stretch on the face of Blue Mountain located simply south of Missoula. The very first fifty percent of the program is primarily open with periodic tree obstacles that can obstruct the view of the basket, followed by the 2nd fifty percent of the program which dives down right into the woody gorges of Blue Mountain. The 2nd half can require a skilled hand at tree-dodging; though the fairways themselves are relatively clear if you can avoid playing in the rough. Generally, a “big-arm” course that needs lots of long shots.

Pattee Canyon – 18 Baskets
This is a technical course embedded in the Pattee Canyon recreation area that will find the player in amongst the trees after the first couple of openings. Often over-crowded after the 5:00 pm job hr has been gotten to, this course is likely the most prominent course in the valley and also around Missoula with a waiting line gathering at the very first opening.

The included reward of this program is that it flaunts a restaurant as well as bar at the base of the lift near the parking area.
