Big Sky, Montana: Best mountain golf courses: The Club at Spanish PeaksBig Sky Resort Golf CourseReserve at Moonlight Basin.

Comment: Avid skiers/travelers say Big Sky – while booming – still has that small-town mountain feel like Aspen, Colo., or Jackson Hole 25 years ago. I got my first taste of Big Sky golf last fall, playing both Spanish Peaks and Moonlight Basin – two private clubs purchased by the same owner during the recession. There is limited access to both by renting a home within their high-end communities. High-end resort hotel projects (a Montage at Spanish Peaks and One&Only at Moonlight Basin) are in the works. The resort course, while relatively flat near the burgeoning town, does have a unique hook. It is Arnold Palmer’s first-ever design, dating back to 1973.
