Lewistown Elks Lodge #456
The Elks Lodge brings much more than a golf course to Lewistown. It’s a place for families to gather, community functions to be held, and programs administered to benefit area youth, veterans, and local charities. We have existed and invested in our community for over 100 years and are proud of our commitment to Lewistown and Central Montana.
Lewistown Elks Lodge#456 Originated in 1899. In 1936, the Elks purchased and restored a defunct golf course one mile south of Lewistown. In 1964 the Lodge, moved from downtown to its now present site, when a new clubhouse was built. In addition to the 9-Hole golf course, the property includes a restaurant and full-service bar. The location and nature of our facilities and organizational mission allow the Elks to be a major host, contributor and facilitator of charitable fundraising and social functions in the area. The Elks provide services that build a stronger community
