The Ranch Club in Missoula, Montana. A beautiful Golf Course no matter what time of year…….. if it’s open to play life is beautiful!!! Of course, it’s early yet and everything is just starting to green up and grow so finding your ball is much easier if you happen to hit it in the rough or if you hit it into the water you may have a chance to find it as the water levels are low (I lose less golf balls this time of year)!!
Not the best picture but I was glad to be out in the fresh air even though it wasn’t shorts and tank top weather just yet……..upper 50’s with an occasional chilly wind off and on that included the clouds hiding the warm beautiful bright sunshine!!
I even took a couple of photos of my husband and his work partner as proof that they usually DO work while out on the course!!!! They took a conference call while playing and this is NOT the first time and I’m sure that it will NOT be the last!!! My husband does it more often than not…..why ruin the chance to be outside enjoying life?!? I’m just lucky enough that most of what he does can be done from anywhere in the world!!!!
The next few pictures are of ones of our dear friend Gordon “Gordy” who has now golfed twice in 3 months!!! It has been 7+ years since he last golfed and he is loving it and hating it at the same time as he is very rusty but is starting to get the feel of it once again!!! He was with us in Mesquite, NV when we golfed Wolf Creek Golf Club this past February (beautiful course and highly recommend if in the area). Gordy swears he is going to be practicing back home in Billings, MT so he can be better once again like he use to be and more confident and relaxed on the course.
Hitting onto the green and rolling towards the pin……
Looking back at the guys to make sure they saw his shot that ended up about 3 ft. from the hole and the closest one of us all!!!
It was WONDERFUL to see him so happy and excited at his great shot!!! Good job Gordy……..I was lucky enough to be capturing it for him to share with his family that is still in shock that he is golfing again at 63 years young!!!!!
Oh Yeah……FIST PUMP!!!!!!!!!
Happy Face…..Happy Strut!!!!
If any of you find yourselves in or near Missoula, Montana I highly suggest The Ranch Club Golf Course!!!! It is a public course so anyone can golf it…….it is challenging for most and a few holes can be easy if your on your “A Game” otherwise you will be with the rest of us and just enjoying the course regardless of your score!!!!!
The Food is wonderful regardless of what you like…..the Chef brings fresh new ideas that are always yummy and the menu is always updated with new exciting dishes so we never get bored with the same old food!! Very Fresh and tantalizing on the taste buds………everything has always been good!!!!
The Beverages are as simple or intricate as you like……..huckleberry lemonade (with or without alcohol but with real huckleberries is one of my favorites), they have seasonal specials, beer, wine and a fully stocked bar as well as many non-alcoholic options as well for adults or the kids!!!
This course is VERY kid and family friendly as they host and have several events throughout the year from Holidays to just because……..kids are often seen practicing, golfing and eating here as well as enjoying their other amenities!!!
The Staff at The Ranch Club have always been courteous, accommodating, friendly and a pure pleasure to be around!!!
Happy Golfing and Thank you for reading my thoughts…….Robin Robinson
