Golfing

It’s no surprise that Golf Digest listed the Flathead among its top 50 golf destinations, and one of the 10 best golf retirement locations. The area around Kalispell has some of the finest public and semi-private courses in the Northwest — from links style to mountain courses to traditional championship layouts. The Flathead Valley offers nine championship courses which are high quality, offer remarkable views and friendly staff and surprisingly low rates.

Buffalo Hill Golf Course — The beauty and charm of the championship 18, along with the scenic splendor and panoramic views make Buffalo Hill the most popular course in the Flathead Valley and consistently on Golf Digest’s top courses and places to play.

Features: 27 holes, PGA Golf Shop, Golf Lessons, Driving Range, Practice Greens, Restaurant.

Northern Pines Golf Club — Two time US Open Champion Andy North course that encompasses two distinctly different types of land journeying from rolling Scottish on the front nine to the elevation changes in the back nine. At 100 yards from the tips to 5800 yards from the front tees, this course changes personalities in many different ways.

Village Greens Golf Club — Spectacular fairway mounding, crystal clear lakes and beautiful white sand and a great value for golfers of all abilities.
