First review of "The Shaft"
Pros: Free to play.
Parking by course.
5 min walk off Broadway for visitors
The course is Beginner friendly on calm wind days with plenty of opportunities for advanced players to separate themselves.
Constantly changing wind conditions make every round unique (some days anything under a 10 over on 9 holes is something to be proud of).
3 Long wide open fairways on several holes offer good opportunities to to work towards 325'-390' drives on any flight path desired.
The course is next to the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary and you can often see the cute recovering animals with a short walk off hole 1.
Great course developing control in the wind.
Cons: On a calm day a good player can easily birdie every hole.
on a really windy day only 2-3 holes will be reasonably birdieable
course does not often force players to make a specific throw-- hole 1 is throwing N-S across a big E-W down sloping hill, hole 4 has a tree in front of the pad and an uphill shot, and hole 9 is a long dog leg left around some tall trees but that's pretty much it beyond figuring out how to throw with that day's unique wind.
Other Thoughts: This is a wonderful little course just on the north side of town. It was built by locals, and is mostly only played by locals. It has well cemented metal baskets that do not change
