America's #42 Best Golf Course and #1 Family Resort in Montana!
"Montana. The last best place"
The beautiful wilderness of Montana beckons. Over 100 mountain ranges, big sky vistas, thousands of crystal clear rivers and streams, stunning freshwater lakes, and myriad trails provide the ultimate setting for this incomparable place. Whether number one ranked golf is your game, a weekend away in one of our luxury cabins, or an opportunity to own a rustic lakeside cottage or custom dream home, this is the relaxed vacation lifestyle you’ve been longing for.
This is the Wilderness Club, in spectacular Montana.
Adventurers Lewis and Clark remarked on the spectacular natural beauty of Montana back in 1805, and it hasn’t changed much over time. Relaxed and easy-going, Montana offers Incredible Rocky Mountain vistas, verdant river valleys. Classic western landscapes punctuated by horseback riders, and irresistible old fashioned charm.
This is where the Ehlert family decided to put down roots and nurture the Wilderness Club into more than just a championship golf course, all the while maintaining the sensitive character of the wilderness environment. The stunning Sir Nick Faldo signature golf course was the first major amenity and the focal point of the community set against 550 acres of private wilderness. Soon after, rustic but refined luxury cabins graced the village center, the wilderness meadow, and the Wilderness Lake. Furthering their vision for a sustainable multi-generational resort community, the Ehlerts added a natural waterpark integrated into the village center landscape, and a family-oriented wilderness park complete with an amphitheater, playing field, and state of the art ball court.
In 2018, a new fitness centre will open, along with a fully equipped equestrian center and direct beach access to the amazing 90 mile long Lake Koocanusa, only 500 yards away. The soon to be developed Village Center with spa, fine dining, bakery and general store will connect to miles of walking trails, and 2019 will mark the beginning of our own organic farm.
Wherever you go in Montana you can still experience good old-fashioned mid-west charm, villages rich with heritage, excellent shopping, great restaurants, award-winning craft breweries, and almost every four-season amenity imaginable.
Hiking, Biking, and Exploring
Located under two hours from the Wilderness Club, spectacular Glacier National Park offers a scenic drive or bike route through the rugged Rockies. Hiking the meadows along the lake, or up to the peaks at sunrise, is a “must-do” with an opportunity to see Montana’s famous longhaired sheep, elk, or even moose.
Cross Country Skiing, Sledding, Skating, and Horse Riding!
Wilderness Club is the perfect base camp to visit the nearby world-class ski resorts in Whitefish, MT and Fernie in nearby British Columbia. Or grab a pair of snowshoes, or cross country skis and explore the National Forest Reserve lands at our doorstep!
Shopping & Sightseeing
Old town character meets new age convenience. Eureka and nearby Whitefish offer myriad restaurants, cafes, boutiques, heritage sites, and gallery hopping. Eureka’s own Front Porch restaurant's Bubba Burger received the honor of Best Burger in the USA! The adjacent Kootenai Forest also provided the Christmas tree for the 2017 White House tree lighting ceremony.
Fly Fishing Paradise
Montana is blessed with thousands of pristine streams, rivers, and lakes, offering some of the best fly fishing in the world and North America's highest density of blue ribbon designated wild trout waters. In fact, the iconic movie, “A River Runs Through It,” was filmed in Montana. Head out on your own or book a memorable guided trip with our Wilderness Club Outfitter.
Four Seasons of Fun
Every season in Montana brings a new adventure. From romantic sleigh rides and skiing in winter, rodeos and boating in summer, to hiking, hunting, wildlife viewing, and trail riding just about any time of year. Wild Montana is fun for the whole family, with an outdoor adventure around every corner.
Wilderness Club is just a few miles south of the Canadian border between British Columbia and USA, and is an easy drive from Idaho, Washington, Wyoming, British Columbia and Alberta. One hour south is the popular resort town of Whitefish Montana, and the Kalispell International Airport with direct flights to many major cities in the U.S.
