Glacier View Golf Club
Montana shows off wildly beautiful scenery at Glacier View Golf Course
Playing Glacier View Golf Course is a unique experience and appeals to golfers in a variety of ways, said Andrew Lettrich, head professional and general manager.
“Most importantly,” he said, “we border Glacier National Park, which offers great views and a unique atmosphere.”
Glacier View Golf Course is located on the southern edge of the park in northwest Montana, and the scenery at this course truly is a sight to behold. You will witness a combination of both the natural beauty of the area as well as the immaculately-maintained fairways and greens of the course.
“Our signature hole is the 17th,” said Lettrich. “It is an average-length par 4 with a slight dogleg to the right. Trees on the left and water down the right. The fairway is fairly tight and the green is the most difficult to navigate because it is very undulated, falling off on all sides and difficult to read.”
Glacier View is a fantastic place to get the family together. Not only does it have excellent customer service, affordable rates and exceptional food and beverage services, but the course is also very sympathetic to players of all ages and skill levels.
“We feel we are one of the most family-friendly golf clubs in the Flathead Valley,” Lettrich said. “Our total yardage and layout is challenging for the advanced player but manageable for the novice player.”
The club also plays host to a variety of special events throughout the year.
“We are starting a senior open tournament this year on July 13 and 14,” said Lettrich, “which we think will be great.”
Another big event for Glacier View is the Flathead International, a two-person scramble using the Stableford scoring system. Held on August 17, this tournament is one of the club’s most popular events.
“Our Night Golf events have gained traction and are a big hit,” said Lettrich. “We hold them on the last Friday of June, July and August.”
The course this year sports a new addition: another tee box on Hole 7. It adds 50 yards to the blue tee and certainly amps up the challenge for those who are ambitious enough to try it out.
