hole-1

Hole 1

Par 4 / 307 • 337 • 357 • 389 yds

With the hole bending to the left for your second shot, and all the trouble being to the right of the green, make sure you are aligned correctly. The approach is also slightly uphill so take an extra half-club.

Hole-2

Hole 2

Par 4 / 301 • 369 • 415 • 455 yds

You can either play your tee shot left-to-right over the large waste area to the left of the fairway, or you turn it over right-to-left to conform to the natural shape of the hole. Envision your preferred shot shape and commit.

The Wilderness Club

Hole 3

Par 5 / 434 • 472 • 486 • 529 yds

A par-5 with a generous fairway but trouble runs all along the right side of the hole. Going for it in two is not as risky here because the green is long and will accept a low trajectory approach.

Hole #4 new-2

Hole 4

Par 4 / 308 • 327 • 357 • 403 yds

A straight drive will keep you out of trouble and give you a fairly easy approach. If the flag is back-right, consider taking more club and swinging easy, to allow the ball to spin less and release gently to the back of this severely two-tiered green.

Hole-5

Hole 5

Par 3 / 122 • 125 • 144 • 161 yds

This picturesque hole usually provides a birdie opportunity if you know your distances and select the right iron. A large troublesome bunker lurks behind the green if you hit it too far. There is a bailout area to the right.

Hole-6

Hole 6

Par 4 / 297 • 349 • 367 • 401 yds

There is really no point in challenging the large waste area that runs along the left side of this par 4. A drive to the right side of the fairway will leave a mid-iron approach. The undulated green generally moves right-to-left.

7

Hole 7

Par 3 / 131 • 168 • 184 • 235 yds

A long and difficult par 3. Take enough club and finish the swing as you do not want to be right of the green here. The bailout area to the left still affords an opportunity to save par.

hole-8

Hole 8

Par 5 / 369 • 484 • 506 • 541 yds

This par 5 is a birdie opportunity if you stay right of the water off the tee. There is a generous landing area for your second shot. Some longer hitters will be able to reach in two. The large green has two tiers, low front and high back.

Hole-9

Hole 9

Par 5 / 341 • 367 • 438 • 503 yds

This par 4 is difficult because it plays long and bunkers on the right protect the smallish green. If you don’t get off the tee well, you may want to consider laying up to avoid a high number.

hole-10

Hole 10

Par 4 / 240 • 267 • 300 • 320 yds

This beautiful short par 4 offers strategic options. A short iron tee shot to the left takes the dead tree out of play and defers the water to the approach shot. A more aggressive tee shot puts the dead tree and water in play but if successful, provides a much easier approach shot.

11

Hole 11

Par 4 / 300 • 345 • 361 • 395 yds

This dogleg right par 4 requires a decent tee shot to the left-center of the fairway. The large, deep green is protected by a slew of bunkers in front. The deep bunkers to the left of the green are particularly troublesome. An uphill putt here will move right-to-left.

Hole-12

Hole 12

Par 5 / 466 • 517 • 537 • 557 yds

This par 5 plays downhill. A very long tee shot might get down to the bottom of the hill, but most play it as a three-shot hole. Keep the tee shot slightly left and the second shot right, away from the water.

The Wilderness Club #13

Hole 13

Par 3 / 129 • 132 • 144 • 153 yds

Fairly easy par 3 that plays slightly uphill. A solid strike with enough club will keep you away from the bunker trouble front and right.

14

Hole 14

Par 4 / 393 • 424 • 443 • 491 yds

A dogleg right par 4 that plays long. Only the longest hitters will avoid having a fairway metal or long iron second shot. A low trajectory approach to the left of the front right bunkers will often carry up and onto the green.

hole-15

Hole 15

Par 4 / 357 • 393 • 414 • 450 yds

A solid drive will give you a mid-iron approach shot to a long narrow green that is heavily bunkered on the right side.

Hole-16

Hole 16

Par 4 / 367 • 403 • 434 • 456 yds

A long, straight or slightly right-to-left drive is required here. Don’t hook it though as there is trouble all along the left side. Next is a difficult, mid-iron approach to a narrow, heavily bunkered green that looks very small from the fairway. A bogie 5 is not a bad score here.

Hole-17

Hole 17

Par 3 / 131 • 143 • 157 • 175 yds

This green has a depression around the right and back, leaving a small, flat terrace where the flag can often be found. Missing the green left will result in a high score. Variable winds off the lake can make club selection difficult.

Hole-18

Hole 18

Par 5 / 438 • 497 • 506 • 593 yds

The obvious trouble here is the lake that borders the entire hole on the left side. Two straight shots will leave a short-iron approach to this large green. Aim a little right as the ball will move right-to-left once on the green.

“Played the Wilderness Club for my second time and was just as impressed as the first time. Beautifully maintained course just outside of Eureka, Montana. Nick Faldo design. Lovely setting with big ponderosa pines and fir trees. Several ponds and just a very peaceful setting.”
