Big Sky Christmas

The first snow has fallen on Mount Currie and the pumpkins are invading our fields. The holidays are coming my friends. And with the arrival of the holidays comes the arrival of Christmas party season. Two of the more popular locations to throw a holiday soirée in Pemberton include the local golf courses, Big Sky Golf and The Meadows at Pemberton. Each course has a large indoor restaurant and entertaining area, along with a fully staffed kitchen and bar! You can book your holiday party at either course starting early November till late December.

The Fescues Restaurant at Big Sky Golf

Big Sky Golf 2015Starting in November the entire Big Sky facility from the gate to the clubhouse will be decorated in holiday decor. The course will be taking bookings for holiday parties from November 13 to December 19. When you book your party at Big Sky you will have access to the entire restaurant, dining area and undercover patio. Big Sky's log cabin clubhouse screams Christmas charm, offering a terrific backdrop, holiday ambiance and picture-taking setting. When you book the facility for your event, the entire area is yours, there is only one booking allowed per day.

The restaurant can be set up in accordance with any particular style. If you would like food during your event options include fully plated dinners, buffet style eating, appetizers and snacks and access to a fully licensed and operational bar. Plated dinners can range from $25 and up, depending on the food choices. The kitchen is open to most requests regarding food, just be sure to plan ahead.

For additional fees, live music or DJ's can be booked for entertainment. Big Sky has a list of live entertainers they can contact, or you can choose to book your own.

Holiday for Paws

Big Sky will be hosting the annual Holiday for Paws fundraiser sometime in late November (official date will be released soon). Guests are encouraged to bring their dogs for a fun night of socializing and tail wagging. Tickets for the event are $10 with all proceeds going towards the Pemberton PAWS chapter. During the event guests can enjoy appetizers and refreshments while puppies can chow down on an assortment of doggy treats.

The event will also feature an appearance from Ol' Saint Nick himself. A dedicated area will be available for Santa Clause pictures for kids and pets. Parents are encouraged to bring their children out for a picture with Santa even if they don't have a pet - we just ask you please give a $10 donation to PAWS.
