Rock Creek Cattle Company ranked #15 in 2011 Golfweek’s Best Modern Courses.
A rare occurrence has come to pass at Rock Creek Cattle Company. An owner with means and a keen vision – Bill Foley, has engaged an architect – Tom Doak, who is one of the recognized leaders of the new golden age of golf course architecture. This course is arguably the best new private built in the last few years. While it is confusing how years and ratings are compiled, Golfweek says it is #1, Golf Digest #2, and Golf Magazine #4.

Something Old School, Something New

America’s Best New Courses of 2009 are all about old school.
The Best New Private winner is tightly forested, lay-of-the-land Pikewood National Golf Club in Morgantown, W.Va., designed (in the tradition of old-school architecture) by a couple of amateur architects, John R. Raese and J. Robert Gwynne. That was something of an upset over early favorite Rock Creek Cattle Company in western Montana, a textbook of natural design by the headmaster of minimalism, Tom Doak.

“Despite the down market in golf course construction recently, there has been plenty of turnover and interesting new developments on our Golfweek’s Best lists of the top 100 Residential Courses, the top 100 Resort Courses and the top 50 Courses of the Caribbean & Mexico.
The newcomers start with the country’s premier real estate property, Rock Creek Cattle Company in Deer Lodge, Mont., where innovative traditionalist – no, that’s not an oxymoron – Tom Doak has honed a down-to-earth design out of scrub land and turned it into desirable ground for folks looking to get away to the American West.”

Bill Garrels, publisher of American Cowboy Magazine, recently informed us that Bill Foley had been named to that publication’s list of 15 Westerners To Watch in 2009. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“Some believe the best thing to do in troubled times is nothing—hunker down, wait and see, hide and watch. That’s hardly the Cowboy Way.
Bold ideas and decisive action are more likely to bootstrap us out of these, or any, difficult days. And that’s what the 15 people profiled here have in common: a willingness to believe and the
gumption to act on those beliefs.
They come from a variety of walks of life, from entertainment to academia to business. They come from the city and the country, but they are all Westerners that bear watching in the year—and years—ahead. Whether building on past accomplishments or laying the foundation for something new, these individuals share the kind of can-do, no-quit attitude that typifies the Cowboy Way.”
