Real estate entrepreneur Jeanne Rizzotto has a penchant for unusual projects, and creating the Of Course RV Resort LLC, the first of many motorcoach resorts in the nation to include a designer golf course, is her most unusual endeavor to date.
Located just north of the historic mountain town of Red Lodge and an hour away from Billings, Montana’s largest city, the first in a series of resorts is scheduled to open in the fall, according to a news release.
The 190-acre resort will feature a private nine-hole golf course with many lakes designed by Robert Trent Jones II, the world-renowned golf design firm. “I begged,” Rizzotto lsaid, “and when the firm’s CEO, John Strawn, visited and saw the vision in full, the firm was in.”
Of Course is designed for high-end motorcoaches and will offer an array of lots that can accommodate park models, a recreational vehicle, or both the park model and the RV. The resort will have more than 500 lots that will line the private golf course or offer scenic views of the area’s mountains.
The resort will feature a clubhouse with shops, a market, a fitness center and a practice area. Rizzotto also plans for a valet service for golf carts and a beverage cart that will make its way around each guest’s lot. In addition, guests will have access to all the amenities of the surrounding area, such as skiing, horseback riding and hiking.
Rizzotto, who runs an area real estate company, CENTURY 21, The Summit Inc., has already attracted more than 200 interested buyers for the resort lot leases.
She also has similar resorts in various stages of development in New Mexico and Arizona.
