Owner description: Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, the Old Works has been reborn on the site of Anaconda's historic century old copper smelter. The first course ever built on a Federal EPA Superfund site, Nicklaus incorporated many historic relics in his design. With its affordability, course conditioning and friendly service, Old Works is quickly building a reputation as one of the premiere, daily fee golf experiences in the Northwest region.

I count my blessings at the courses throughout the world that I have had the privilege of visiting and continue to think of Old Works as one of my favorites. My opinion is the Golden Bear did it right when he looked over this former copper refinery and used its history as an integral part of the course design. He... More

I was nervous about playing this course because I'm not that good at golf. I loved it. This is a world class course.

This is one of my favorite courses to play. We make a semi-annual pilgrimage to Anaconda to play Old Works in the spring and again in the late fall. Five sets of tee boxes allow for the player to determine how difficult they want their round to be. I have never played from the tips as the next set of... More

Another great Jack Nicklaus designed course. Built on what was a super-fund site, the surrounding landscape is dotted with the ruins of smelters that once spoiled the area. Green Fees are reasonable and you can book tee times on-line well in advance. Several of the holes look simple enough (such as hole number 2) but the design of the fairways... More

Old Works is a combination of beautiful landscaping and mining history. It is a well run course that was pleasant and challenging to play. We are already talking of making another trip next year.

My husband played all 18 holes on a brisk sunny day in mid-October and loved every minute of it. The course is huge, challenging, beautiful, and well-designed. The black slag sand pits are stunning. Staff were most friendly and helpful. The price can't be beat at $35 for a round of golf ($45 if you get a cart) and $35... More

Very interesting design on waste area. We booked a discounted time on Ez Links. Unfortunately, we were past the cancellation window and had to play the front nine in 60 degrees and drizzle. The staff gave us the option of playing at another time but we had a hotel reservation we needed to get to later in the day. Still... More

The golf course is beautiful, the black sand traps adding wonderfully to the experience. Reasonably priced, even. The restaurant is a must as well, great food, friendly servers.

An exceptional course. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The course is challenging and I finally played a decent round! Kept my score under a 100 for the first time ever. The black sand traps make it easy to find your balls :) The gallery of rock chucks throughout the course offers a bit a humor in sometimes a... More

An excellent Jack Nicholas course developed on a massive, Superfund Cleanup Site. The course winds among remains of copper smelters offering close-up look at historical ruins while playing a beautiful course a mile high in the Rocky Mountains of Montana.
