What people say about us
CVGC has played an instrumental role in the lives of my family members for 60+ years. Starting with my dad's design and development of the original green on hole #8, we have eagerly anticipated playing the course multiple times each summer. Several of us also played many years in the Invitational tournament that used to take place on Father's Day weekend. We consider CVGC a safe and enjoyable haven for hours of fun each summer, but we, too, cursed our dad when we four-putted on the old 8th green.
There are several unique features about Cabinet View Golf Course and one is The Name. "The View" is a treat you do not get at many other golf courses. It is a rural setting with beautiful views of the Cabinet Mountains. In addition to that you have probably the best kept greens in NW Montana. The fairways and rough are nicely manicured also. Add to this a friendly staff along with a reasonable price. I do not think you can beat Cabinet View!
I always enjoy playing Cabinet View. The course has two different styles of golf. 9 holes around the clubhouse and 9 holes out in the trees. It’s usually in good playing condition before the Flathead Valley courses. I love the way the community supports their course in Libby. It really has a friendly atmosphere.
