If you thought it impossible for one place to have it all, you haven’t considered Missoula. This vibrant college town is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream that embodies the best of the New West, a study in contrasts where sophistication, education and culture meld with a relaxed, hip vibe that draws an eclectic mix of single professionals, active retirees and young families alike.

Missoula’s location, where five mountain valleys merge, mean quick and easy access to hiking and mountain biking trails, ski hills, and rivers ideal for kayaking and fly fishing. In fact, the Clark Fork, Blackfoot, and Bitterroot rivers converge around Missoula. Western Montana features the bulk of the state”s wilderness areas, including the 1.5-million-acre Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, which is comprised of the Bob Marshall, Scapegoat and Great Bear wilderness areas.

In town, Missoula is a community that thrives on its local culture. The heart of this movement lies in downtown Missoula. Locally run shops sell locally produced goods. Restaurants cook with organic vegetables and meat grown and raised within a few miles of Missoula. Caras Park, located downtown next to the Clark Fork River, hosts festivals, international events, concerts, and other community gatherings. On Saturday mornings during the summer, the streets downtown are clogged with pedestrians and cyclists navigating the Farmers Market. Missoula is also famous for its microbreweries: Kettlehouse, Bayern and Big Sky.

When it comes to looking for a residence in Missoula, The Ranch Club offers high-end homes in a private Missoula golf community just outside of town. Prices here range from $300,000 to $700,000. Called “Club Lodges,” these homes feature views of the mountains and the links-style golf course at The Ranch Club. The modern-yet-rustic architecture of these spacious, luxury lodges reflects Montana’s landscape using recycled wood and stone construction. The Ranch Club also has Missoula land for sale, with home sites available for anywhere from $80,000 to $200,000.

The Ranch Club is a golf community that sits on a 340-acre scenic swath of land in the Clark Fork River Valley. Conveniently located just six miles northwest of Missoula’s city center and the main campus of the University of Montana, The Ranch Club offers easy access to the considerable events and culture of Missoula while still enjoying the calm of the countryside. At the center of The Ranch Club is a championship 18-hole, links-style golf course designed by Les Furber. Missoula Montana Real Estate options at The Ranch Club include custom homesites and Club Lodges. Club amenities include a Clubhouse with a fine-dining restaurant featuring newly expanded indoor, outdoor and private dining areas, golf shop, four-pool complex, fitness center, and members’ locker rooms. To learn more about membership and living options call 406-532-1000 or visit
