Montana Pitch & Putt!
Pros: The course is set in a small wooded area next to a river and a small community park. It reminds me of what you would build if you owned 8 acres and wanted your own course to play. You wouldn't neccessarily be worried about putting up signs for others, etc. After the first four holes, the course is easy to follow playing mostly short, (I think 14 holes are less than 200') through the trees. Almost every hole on the course is an ace run. I think most were pretty well thought out and designed. The teepads worked just fine for these short throws. Most of the baskets have a nice bright orange numbers welded on top. These would be beneficial to so many other courses.
Cons: The first four holes are difficult to find and follow. Luckily, we had a local 9 year old, whose father and uncle designed the course, show us the first four. # 14 is not a well designed safe hole. It's the longest hole on the course, 291', the basket is hidden, and the fairway is along the railroad tracks. It would be quite easy to land your tee off on the tracks and play from there. Unfortunately, these tracks are high useage. Three trains went by during my two short rounds the day I played. Maybe Montana doesn't have lawyers and liability laws!
Other Thoughts: It's a fun little throw. Lots of ace opportunities. Watch out for the trains on # 14. If you happen to be driving by, you're probably lost, hunting or fishing. But then you might as well stop and play a quick round or two.
