The Club at Spanish Peaks was designed by Tom Weiskopf, and is located a short distance from his Yellowstone Club course also in the Big Sky region of Montana. This is similarly attractive mountain golf, with lots of dramatic views and scenic outlooks and golf holes that are arranged to be playable to a wide range of abilities.
Like Yellowstone, however, the Club at Spanish Peaks provides little genuine challenge to good golfers and fails to quite reach the same standards as Weiskopf best courses elsewhere. The par five 2nd hole is a cracking par five that falls steeply from the tee and then bends around a wetland area, but otherwise most of the front nine is fairly tame. On the back nine the holes get a little harder, and the stretch from 12 to 14 is very good, but the reminder lack real strategic arrangement and were it not for the impressive turf standards and surrounding scenery would probably struggle to hold golfers attention.
Tom Weiskopf is a talented architect, and while his work in Montana is not from the absolute top shelf, these were steep and difficult properties and the golf here at Spanish Peaks is good enough for most looking to invest in the Big Sky lifestyle.
