Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Reviewed 9 August 2013

Everything about this course is amazing...beautifully manicured...the "black sand" is is so unique and stunning! The course it's self is challenging but all levels of golfers can play it! The food and service from pro shop to club house was excellent ! The town it's self is very quaint and cute! We will go back!

“Don't miss this”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

My husband and I have golfed here twice. The course sits on a Superfund site (which sounds scary, I know) but the view, the course, the incorporation of the old mine works, and did I mention the course? are FABULOUS. The greens are fast. The slag in the bunkers is a deep, shimmery black. The old slews are still there, along with some huge ore carts. Old brick is scattered all over. You cross a fast moving stream (to both the front & back 9) with the clearest water running through it.

Greens fees include a cart & range balls. The staff is super friendly. "Jack's Grill" in the clubhouse serves fresh, delicious food and cold drinks (including Adult Beverages). They send out the beverage cart, too.

If you go in the summer be prepared for thunderstorms. Big, Biblical style thunderstorms with bolts of lightning - and WIND. We were in the tee box on #14 when the siren went off and everyone scurried to the clubhouse. We got there with a few minutes to spare before the heavens opened up. It rained heavily for a good 40 mins before we decided to call it a day. Since we were out of town, we got a credit to use in the pro shop.

The course is a short drive from Butte. Go make a day of it!

We loved this course - booked out tee time direct with the course about a month before we traveled. Black sand and lots of variety for all golfers..

“Nice Course”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

Nice course in a very interesting setting. A good use of the Superfund money. Mr. Nichlaus always gives you a driver with big greens and this is no exception. Very picturesque front nine and nice back nine. I found the greens quite easy to read but my playing companions had troubles as there is a general flow to the 'stack'
