Riverside Country Club in beautiful Bozeman, MT is a lush and friendly member owned club with year round recreation options and a classy clubhouse ideal for entertaining or simply relaxing.
The golf course is very walker friendly. Conditions were excellent when I walked 18 in early August, 2010. Although the fairways appear to be wide and forgiving the thick bluegrass and numerous pines lining these fairways will gobble wayward shots.
The greens are large and generally flat. The speed of the greens was fairly fast.
Although Riverside is private they welcome visitors that are members of other clubs on a reciprocal rate of $90- including cart and range. The same rate is available when hosted by a member.
I was able to play with two friendly members that routinely enjoy walking their early morning round here. They showed real pride in their club. The membership rates they quoted seemed very reasonable for such a fine club.
For a nice, walker friendly 18 holes in fresh Montana air and sunshine contact Riverside Country Club. You'll enjoy your day and some great food and refreshments on their open air patio.

Brandon, Head Golf Professional, and Chuck, GM, and their team do a great job of operating a very clean, friendly and well manicured golf course and complete country club. This would be a great club to join for residents of the Bozeman area. It's also a refreshing club to play for travelers of Southwest Montana.
Here's How Texas Outside Determines the Scorecard Rating
The Texas Outside rating scale ranges from 1 to 10 – a perfect 10 course would be something like this: links along a cliff overlooking the Pacific ocean and bordered by tall trees; lush fairways on rolling hills with lots of natural hazards; water (which is crystal clear) on most of the holes; immaculate greens (but they are undulating and tough); lots of variety and character (each hole is completely different and includes blind shots, elevation changes, doglegs, and significant challenges); perfectly manicured traps with the whitest and prettiest sand you’ve ever seen; a nice club house with great food and a 19th hole; a GPS; plenty of beverage carts or your own cooler and ice; and it only costs $40 bucks! What this means is that you probably won’t find any 10s in Texas – try Cabo San Lucas, Pebble Beach, or some of the Hawaii courses!
All of the above determines the overall score for the golf course. In other words, we like courses that are pretty, fun, very challenging with a lot of variety, and fairways and greens in excellent condition – all for $40. We also tend to play the courses that are affordable for the masses, which means in the $30 to $80 range. We rate hard and we haven’t found a 10 in Texas yet – don’t worry we haven’t given up and we’re still looking.
