In Volume 3 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“Touted as an environmental success story for golf, the Old Works course was created as part of the Superfund clean-up of the smelting plant that was the center of Anacdonda’s economy. Mining relics are highlighted as features on several holes, and the black sand in the bunkers gives the course a unique look; the front nine is inspired, but they must have brought in a shaper from Florida to work on the back nine which is more of a yawner. Unfortunately, the Superfund agreement did not include an endowment to maintain the course indefinitely, and a lack of golfer traffic in this part of Montana has placed the future of the course in jeopardy. See it while you can – your tax dollars paid for it!“
Old Works Golf Club received a score of 5 out of 10 from Tom Doak.
