Golf Course · Outdoor Activity
Considered by many the best player of all time and one of the worlds leading course designers; his firm Nicklaus Design has over 310 courses opened to date, while Jack has over 255 courses to his credit worldwide. In addition Nicklaus has six designs included in Golf Digest's America's 100 Greatest Courses.

As one of the largest Superfund waste areas in America, the site was also one of the most challenging to design. Nicklaus, first signature design in Montana incorporated many historic relics of the copper smelter, from the flue and oven remains, to fairways that border and wind their way between black slag. The slag a by product of the copper smelting process is also featured in all of the bunkers on the course providing a stunning contrast to white bunker sand found on other courses.

The Old Works features generous fairway landing areas bordered by native grasses with large undulating greens. Warm Springs Creek, once utilized by the smelting operation and now hosting a healthy population of trout, is negotiated a number of times during the round and adds character to the layout. Nicklaus also incorporated multiple tees each hole allowing the course to measure from 5,290 to over 7,700 yards offering a challenge to players of all skill levels.

  • I played this course on July 19, 2020. The fairways were in terrible shape. I play this course twice a year since it opened. This is the worst shape I have ever seen it.  more »
  • We loved the history of this Jack Nicklaus course. The sand traps are black sand, and the views are spectacular too. We had a great time.  more »
