Golf is considered a gentleman's game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition.

Mountain Vista Golf Course sprawls from the banks of Box Elder Creek, challenging golfers with a full-length nine-hole course. Compare big swings at the driving range, which has year-round grass and where an extra-large bucket of balls warms up arms more effectively than freshly microwaved sleeves. Once prepped, golfers meander through nine holes on the picturesque course, which positions fairways and greens amid a maze of marshes, a large pond, and mature trees that keep their analysis of Russian literature to a polite whisper.
Although not included in the cost of the Groupon, golfers can fuel their games with refreshments from the grill or the full-service beverage cart with beer, wine, and mixed drinks. Two covered patios house noshers and protect food from being blown away by epic drives down the fairway.

The nine holes of Mountain Vista Golf Course present a charming, 3,500-yard challenge set against a dramatic backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. Box Elder Creek weaves through the middle of the course and into play, and mature pine trees frame spacious fairways.

At Bentley’s, the grill located just off the course, two covered patios welcome those looking to grab a bite to eat as they transition from a round of golf to a round of beer or a round of boxing against a disgruntled caddie.
