The finest in golf course living
MONTANA'S FINEST HOMES — When it comes to golf course living, one course in Montana stands out above the rest.
Set among the forests and meadows near Glacier National Park, Meadow Lake Golf Community offers a relaxing golf lifestyle on a spectacular 18-hole course.
The lifestyle and living choices at Meadow Lake are as diverse as the golf course. Meadow Lake has many options for home ownership, from condominiums and townhomes, to single family residences.
One such custom home is a 6,700-square-foot custom home overlooking the fourth tee box at Meadow Lake Resort in Columbia Falls, Montana. Custom features abound in this home, from marble floors in the master bath, to a downstairs family area that provides comfort and special features including a 10-seat home theatre, billiards room and bar.
The home, built by Ski Construction, was designed with full home automation, from lighting and communications to custom sound.
Perhaps the best amenity of Meadow Lake is, of course, its golf. The 18-hole course, given a 4 1/2-star rating by Golf Digest, is notched out of a forest just on the outskirts of Columbia Falls, and the setting offers mountain fairways with views into Glacier National Park, which is only a 20-minute drive away. Nearly all the holes at Meadow Lake are separate from adjoining fairways, so privacy and quiet surround you during your round. And with its narrow, densely lined fairways and water hazards, it is one of the more challenging courses in the Flathead Valley.
“The course offers challenges for all skill levels,” says Barb Riley of Meadow Lake Real Estate. Meadow Lake Golf Community is open to the public, so memberships are not required to play golf there.
“I think what most people find is that the atmosphere is relaxed and family-oriented. It creates a feeling of a hide-away community, yet so close to everything that Northwest Montana has to offer,” Riley added. “You can walk in here and walk away from the rest of the world.” •
