Course was in very good condition considering it's early spring golf in Montana. Extended distance between several holes makesit a difficult walking course - but still worth it.

Played on a very hot 35C . Cold water every 3 holes or so. Course has a very nice layout with very good conditions. Some really beautiful holes. No one was in front of me and finished in under 2.5 hrs walking. I would recommend carts to anyone that doesn't like walking a lot - long distances between holes,

Stephen at the pro shop was top notch. Extremely friendly, courteous and attentive to every detail. He really loves his job and dealing with people. Made my day. Hope your knee is better soon.

Was first time playing the course, but not for my playing partners. They were disappointed at having to play sanded greens (was not mentioned at time of tee booking). Anyway, course was fun to play and the practice facilities and clubhouse were nice. Would recommend a cart as there is some distance between some of the holes, but did see plenty of people walking.

Great day of golf in a beautiful setting. It is a long and winding course and should not be walked unless you are really looking for a workout.

I found it to be very challenging and enjoyable. It plays in and out of a golf community with great views of Mt. Sentinel. The 4 sided tee box signs posting the yardage was a nice touch so you could see the yardage at any angle. GPS was a plus in the carts.<br/> The greens are tough and undulating but in beautiful shape. Fairways and rough were also looking good. Some tee boxes were chewed up but still fine. Some holes had a decent amount of distance between green and tee box making carts a must.<br/> Definitely play Canyon River if you're Missoula, I feel its a better bargain than The Ranch Club.

Really liked this course. The greens were fast and smooth. The fairways were great. Some of the par 4s were long. It is a challenging course. If you are in the area you need to play this course.The mountains around the course make for some great views.I would recommend riding there are some long stretches between holes.
