Sunshine & Bluebird Skies: A Telling Sign of Golf Rounds to Come

Written by Kipp Proctor on  at


The beautiful spring weather of recent is a telling sign of summer golf rounds to come and a wait that is almost over.

With the course scheduled to open this Friday May 24th, it’s time to bust out the clubs, give them a good cleaning, and brush up on your swing. But if you’re feeling a little rusty, look no further than Big Sky Resort’s PGA Golf Professional, Mark Wehrman. Coming into his 2nd year with Big Sky, Mark is eager to get things underway and with his expert instruction, he’ll get your swing back on plane.

Don’t go worrying if you’re just visiting though, Mark has got you covered. With a brand new line up of Nike rental clubs you’ll be stroking the ball just like Tiger in the Players Championship (or at least we hope so).

But since the snow has melted, we locals have been left drooling as we hanker for an opportunity to tee off on the plush green carpet that offers one of the most beautiful backdrops in golf: Lone Mountain and the surrounding Spanish Peaks. If the scenic views from the course aren’t enough, the extra carry you receive off the tee at 6,500 ft. will surely have you strutting up to your second shot. But be sure to keep that in mind when stepping up to the ball, I’d hate for you to sail one over the green.

With sunshine and blue bird skies in the forecast, it looks like we’re in store for another phenomenal start to golf season up here in gorgeous Big Sky.
