At The Ranch Club, we feel that growth within the great game of golf is a key component to the long term success of the business. For this reason, The Ranch Club welcomes both member and guest golfers to our lesson programming which includes; private lessons, semi-private lessons, clinics, and camps.

The Ranch Club is honored to be the home of The Mike Barnett Golf Academy. Mike Barnett name is synonymous with Montana golf. As a junior golfer, he was a wunderkind, winning three state championships for Missoula Sentinel High School. At the age of 15, Mike was the Montana State Amateur runner-up. The following years, he captured back-to-back Montana State Amateur titles while playing for Arizona State. In addition to his 30 plus years teaching experience in Montana, Mike also worked for more than a decade with the John Jacobs golf schools in Michigan, Alabama and Arizona.

In addition to the player development info listed above, The Ranch Club offers the forever memorable, SNAG Golf Program. SNAG, stands for starting new at golf, 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 Operation 36 golf programming. New for 2019, the founder of Montana Golf in Schools, PGA professional Joey Esh will lead junior golf Op 36 at the ranch. 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. When the 36 score is accomplished...points, prizes and bragging rights are earned, while also moving the player back a level, which is then 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.
