Yellowstone Country Club is an 18 hole private golf course that sits below the sandstone rimrocks of Billings Montana. Robert Trent Jones laid out a fair, fun and challenging golf course many of the design features that would become Trent Jones hallmarks: large, undulating greens that offer a host of pin positions, expansive tees that permit numerous setups, unobtrusive hazards and a fanatical devotion to preserving the land’s natural beauty. Outstanding vistas surround the course providing an inspiring backdrop for the game of golf. Trees which appeared nonexistent in 1958 now complete the course challenging golfers, framing the landscape, and shading and protecting the course. Robert Trent Jones philosophy of design includes holes of “difficult par” and “easy bogey.” The course judiciously punishes bad shots and rewards good shots. While providing a stiff test for the expert, it does not break the spirit of the average golfer.
