Maybe it’s the August heat, and maybe it’s the reality that even if you do have time to escape to the beach, it’s still pretty hot there. And that got us to thinking: Where can you go to beat the heat and score some affordable golf?
Few places offer a more temperate summer climate and better golf deals than Montana. Start with Old Works Golf Course, the top-ranked Golfweek’s Best Course You Can Play in Montana. You can tackle this Jack Nicklaus design for less than $50 any day of the week.
And just 90 minutes up the road in Missoula, you can tee it up at second-ranked Canyon River for a top rate of $43.
With prices like that, you might want to bypass the 19th hole when you come off the course and spend a little time looking for a good deal on a log cabin.
