Old Works, Anaconda
(4.6/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Excellent course with geneous fairways. The greens were fast but fair and the fairways in great shape. Would definitely play again.
  • 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.
  • Great course in top condition. It's a long course and has some very challenging holes. Fairways are lush and greens are fast. The cafe has some good food.
  • A must play if you are in southwest Montana. This Nicklaus designed course offers black-sand bunkers and waste areas and beautiful mountain views. An absolutely stunning golf course through and through!!
  • Nice palace
