Montana's Longest Drive

“Between a Bar and an RV Park” at Buckwood Country Club

From the beginning of this trip, I was figuring I would find a golf course that perhaps I had missed during my research. That was just the case of Buckwood Country Club a par 3 course in Eureka, Montana. Located right behind the Silverado Motel & Bar and in front of an RV Park this par 3 was an easy way to spend an evening in Eureka.

With Scott Meissner and Mike and Landon Spencer, I ventured out to play Buckwood Country Club on a sunny Friday evening in Eureka.

The four of us began our round on the course that plays 1,278 yards from the back tees on the 100-yard down hill par 3 hole that plays alongside the access road to the RV park and back to a relatively flat green.

The 5th hole is a 135-yard par 3 that plays past a pumphouse on the right to an elevated green with a rock wall protecting the front of the putting surface.

The small course at Buckwood Country Club is an entertaining place for quick nine. The longest hole at Buckwood is the 260-yard par 4 9th hole that plays over the top of some small trees and back alongside the Silverado Motel & Bar to a slightly elevated green.

Playing the nine holes in about a hour, Scott, Mike, Landon, and I had more laughs than I could count. The short course proved challenging and exciting for the wager we had put on this round after we picked our partners.

If you’re looking for a fun little nine hole experience that won’t take you too long to play, Buckwood might just be the place for you.
