Links Living: Spanish Peaks

Set amid the Montana wilderness, this private golf and ski community is adding to an already impressive slate of four-season amenities

At Spanish Peaks Mountain Club in Big Sky, Mont., they say the adventures are as endless as the landscape. That’s not hyperbole. With the namesake range towering in the background, Yellowstone National Park less than an hour away, and the surrounding Big Sky country a four-season wonderland of activity, the club is a haven for adventure seekers, outdoor enthusiasts, and anyone dreaming of a life well lived in wide-open spaces.

In addition to all this the rugged region offers blue-ribbon trout streams; miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding; and thousands of acres of world-class skiing and snowboarding. The 3,530-acre Spanish Peaks community offers ski-in, ski-out access to Big Sky Resort’s nearly 6,000 acres of skiable terrain; a members-only clubhouse with dining room, bar, full-service spa and fitness center, and swimming pool; a riverside outpost for fly-fishing; a mid-mountain winter dining venue; tennis and pickleball courts; a snow-tubing hill; and a year-round calendar of member-only events and experiences.

During golf season, the Tom Weiskopf course, which sits at 7,000 feet, thrills on 300 acres of gently rolling terrain. The layout fits seamlessly in the Montana wilderness, with no two fairways bordering each other. When you play the 7,193-yard course, it comes as no surprise to learn that Weiskopf designed it on horseback. But golfers enjoy the 40-mile views of Spanish Peaks and Gallatin Range, as well as Yellowstone’s Absaroka and Beartooth peaks, from golf carts, not saddles. This fall, the golf experience will expand to include a 10-hole Par-3 course designed after 10 of the late Weiskopf’s favorite holes from around the world.

Located less than an hour from the Bozeman Yellowstone International airport, Spanish Peaks offers a wide range of real estate options. You can build a home in Highlands West, buy a five-bedroom townhome next to the new Par-3 course, or go as big as the Montana sky with a five- or six-bedroom Montage Mountain Home. Or opt for one of the new, fully furnished, three- and four-bedroom offerings at The Inn Residences at Montage Big Sky. Now under construction, The Inn Residences are available in deeded, one-quarter-ownership interests and include membership at Spanish Peaks. If you’re looking to maximize time with family seasonally and enjoy Spanish Peak’s signature amenities, The Inn Residences may be the perfect opportunity.
