This golf course is built in the area where the old smelter works were located, so take the time to... read more

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.

This golf course is built in the area where the old smelter works were located, so take the time to read the little informational signs as your play a round and enjoy the history of the area. As I understand it, Jack Nicklaus designed the...More

This Nicklaus course's claim to fame is its black slag bunkers. The site was mined for copper for decades leaving mountains of the stuff. The designers decided to use it. The grain is heavy but slick, making it easy to get out of a bunker...More

This golf course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is not only beautiful, it is a great example of environmental management. Built on the site of a large, but shutdown copper mine and smelting operation, the land has been reclaimed and beautified in a very creative way....More

As a Phoenix resident, I spend part of the summer in Anaconda, MT - visiting friends wanted to play golf so I took them over to Old Works. I had never been to the course and we found a lovely 18-hole course. For me, as...More

Played here for the first time in 15 years. The designs of the greens are great, plus the rough makes for a demanding Tee shot. The bunkers around the greens are very playable. Well-maintained golf course, if you haven't played here I think you'll like...More

It was a great course with stunning vistas but we've played better courses. Price was a little exorbitant for 2 retirees but we felt like getting to play a course designed by Jack Nicklaus was worth the cost. All in all, we enjoyed the day...More
