The Club at Spanish Peaks is a big hit in Big Sky, Montana

BIG SKY, Mont. -- Perched on the edge of the Yellowstone National Park ecosystem less than hour from Bozeman, The Club at Spanish Peaks , a private golf course that offers resort packages to the public, is a true escape from the everyday hustle and bustle of life.

Designer Tom Weiskopf got to pick the best part of this 5,700-acre expanse that's set among Yellowstone, the Gallatin National Forest, the Lee Metcalf Wilderness and the Spanish Peaks. It could be argued that this 7,200-yard, par-72 course, which opened in 2007, has 18 signature holes. Almost any of them would have worked on the front of the scorecard, but they chose the beautiful downhill par-3 15th, which provides a 40-mile view from the tee box.
