In 1997, Golf Digest wrote that "There's still one uncharted mecca on the map that offers everything you could ask for in a golf vacation destination: terrific courses, excellent weather, welcoming locals, unparalleled natural beauty and prices that seem to good to be true. That is exactly what you will find amidst the low-altitude mountain glory of beautiful Flathead Valley in Northwest Montana. Long known as the Gateway to Glacier National Park, Montana's Flathead Valley might very well be the last best frontier of undiscovered golf in the continental U.S."

If that alone isn't enough reason to consider Meadow Lake, then the Dick Phelps-designed course should seal the deal. A fantastic resort course that is a pleasure to walk, many fine holes, such as the 18th, dot this well-maintained layout.
