When golfers look at moving to Montana they naturally concentrate on Billings. That’s because of the state’s more than 120 golf course, the very best are located right here.
Last week we took a look at life around Billings’ private golf country clubs. This week, we shine the light on our public courses and the amazing Billings homes for sale around them.
Lake Hills Golf
Is it a golf course or a nature preserve? You may be asking yourself that as you tee off to an audience of waterfowl inhabiting the ponds and lakes and grazing antelope on the fairways. Designed in 1957, the 18-hole, championship Lake Hills course features 6,802 yards of golf from the longest tees, with a par of 72.
If you have your heart set on living on a golf course when you move to or within Billings, you may just find what you’re looking for near Lake Hills. The course is not only surrounded, but bisected by residential areas. East of the clubhouse, for instance, you’ll find large homes, typically built in the early 2000s, along Eastlake Cir. and Wentworth Dr. South of the clubhouse, homes sit along Tamoshanter Rd., Glenhaven Pl. and Sylvan Ln. We’re happy to show you any of the homes for sale on or near Lake Hills Golf.
By the way, Lake Hills offers online tee time scheduling or you can reserve by phone at (406) 252-9244.
Yegen Golf Club
After the brutal winter we experienced here in Billings, it’s nice to know that golfers can still practice their swings even in the worst of it. Yegen Golf Club’s Swing Lab facility offers indoor hitting stalls for not only golf, but baseball and softball as well.
Open in 1992, Yegen’s 18-hole course features 6,617 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. A somewhat easy track, it’s the ideal course for the beginning Billings golfer. They also offer leagues for men, women, seniors and couples, lessons for adult golfers and a golf camp for kids.
Located at 1390 Zimmerman Trail in Billings, the nearest homes to the fairways are across Broadwater Ave., south of the course.
Ask most local Billings golfers which of our public courses is the most fun and you’ll hear a chorus of approval for the par-3 Exchange City course. Sure, a lot of folks like the course for its affordability (only $20 for 18 holes), but this sharp muni track is challenging as well. Located at the junction of 19th Street West and Central Ave., the closest homes to the course are located across S 19th St. W, along S. Crestwood Dr.
Eagle Rock Golf Course
If you’re looking for a course that offers amazing scenery, play a round at Eagle Rock Golf Course. The 18-hole track is challenging, yet fun and the layout takes full advantage of Billings’ beauty. The sunsets over the lake are worth playing a late round or relaxing in the clubhouse over a Montana-handcrafted brew.
Open to the public in 2003, Eagle Rock features 7,152 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. It’s located just minutes from downtown Billings
When we decided to write about golf courses in Billings we hoped to feature the amazing communities situated along their fairways. There are no homes, however, along Eagle Rock Golf Course. But it is a favorite of many in Billings, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t include it.
