Game Improvement is a gift for everyone.  For this reason, the Ranch Club welcomes both member and non-member golfers for all of our lesson, coaching and game improvement programs for adults and children.

We are very proud to be the home of the Mike Barnett Golf Academy, one of the finest golf instruction academies in the State of Montana. Mike is synonymous with Missoula golf.  Barnett was a golfing wunderkind, winning three state high school championships for Missoula Sentinel.  He was the Montana State Amateur runner-up in 1967, at the young age of 15, and captured back-to-back State Amateur titles in 1974 and 1975 while playing for Arizona State.  In addition to his teaching experience in Montana, Mike worked for more than a decade with the John Jacobs golf schools in Michigan, Alabama and Arizona.

Mike Barnett Golf Academy offers program options including half-hour individual lessons, one-hour individual lessons, semi-private small group instruction, and even larger group clinics.

In addition to the player development info listed above, The Ranch Club offers the forever memorable, SNAG Golf Program.  SNAG contains all the elements of golf but in a modified form and falls somewhere between miniature golf and regulation golf.  SNAG allows for full shots, pitching, chipping, and putting, while using Velcro targets and user friendly equipment.

The Ranch Club is also excited to be launching a customized Operation 36 beginner golf program. This program starts the golfer closer to the green and challenges each player to accomplish the 9-hole score of 36 from their particular program level, which could be as close to the green as 25 yards. Accomplish 36...and earn points, prizes as well as bragging rights, while also moving back a level, which is a little farther distance from the green. Participants from all ages track their progress through points, levels and divisions, with a trend setting new social networking software.
