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.

    Love this course! We played on 7/30/17. Course was in excellent condition except for #3 which was shortened to a par 4 due to some water damage (I think?) They gave us a discount because of this, $65 ...  more »

    Extremely interesting golf course. Each hole is unique. The fairways are lush. The greens are fast and very challenging. The sand traps are filled with black fine sand. A great experience all around. ...  more »

    Golfed here in June. The reason I gave it a 4 is because the greens had been punched and sanded. It had been a couple of days so the greens putted not too bad. Otherwise this course is a 5. And they g...  more »

    Incredible course. Well worth the trek from wherever you may be. Wide fairways that reward proper placement and interesting greens. A course that would reward replay. Sand is... Odd. Doesn't react like normal sand and changes as the day goes on, it dries out, and heats up.

    Wide fairways and a plethora of tee boxes to choose from, great place to play.

    I have a great friend whose company did most if not all the work that Jack Nicklaus company designed. And what a great challenging course for most golfers. Once you play the traps and try to get the ball on the green you may wonder who the black stuff. Not only a great course, but the management and personnel are great and willing to go the mile for all the visitors and golfers. Don't ever pass it up. While in Anaconda have a great stake dinner --- you'll never find one any better.

    Excellent course with geneous fairways. The greens were fast but fair and the fairways in great shape. Would definitely play again.
