Love Golf? This 128-Acre Montana Course Could Be Yours for $2.4M
I'd play more if I owned a golf course.
My co-worker Mark typically plays golf at least a couple of times per week in the summer. I think he's given up on inviting me to join him because I always seem to have an excuse for why I can't go. Work, family obligations, and my budget are the most common reasons for passing on the invite. But what if I owned a course? Surely I would play more. Would my score finally drop below triple digits?
Central Montana's only 18-hole course is on the market.
Two hours north of Billings, near the geographical center of Montana is where you'll find Judith Shadows Golf Course. Located on the outskirts of Lewistown, the 128-acre, 18-hole golf course appears to be a turnkey operation and is offered at $2.4 million.
Everything you need to take over operations.
According to the listing, 52 gas-powered Yamaha golf carts come with the course, along with 6 golf boards, mowers, various groundskeeping equipment, and a full beverage Montana liquor license (with an option for gaming). The liquor license alone is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Plenty of water to keep the greens... green.
Water is always a concern in a typically dry state like Montana, but you shouldn't have to worry much if you purchase the course. Three wells are on the property, providing plenty of irrigation to keep things green from the tee to the green.
An event center is on-property.
Another revenue stream for the golf course is a 5,000-square-foot event center named the Cart House. It's ADA-compliant and is used for weddings and other special events in the community. The restaurant/bar on the course currently serves homemade pizzas and an assortment of bar food.
One of the most charming towns in Central Montana.
I love visiting Lewistown. It's full of history, surrounded by mountains and recreational opportunities. The community is large enough to provide most daily amenities, yet the small-town Montana vibe remains. Want to buy the golf course?
