MISSOULA, Mont. – There was a time not long ago when most golfers from the Spokane area blew through Missoula without so much as a sideward glance, on their way to the Old Works in Anaconda or the Flathead Valley, with its wonderful array of beautiful courses.

But the recent addition of a new public layout, Canyon River Golf Club, in East Missoula has added immensely to the golf image of the city. And by taking its place alongside The Ranch Club, a semi-private course just east of Frenchtown and one of the best tracks in the state, Canyon River is helping lure golfers from the Pacific Northwest in droves.

Myself and a couple of friends recently played both high-end courses and made a stop at Trestle Creek Golf Course, the popular nine-hole layout in St. Regis along the way.

We came away impressed with all three, which combined to offer a splendid golf experience.
