This Scottish links-style course is famous because of its scenic location that is highlighted by views of humongous glaciers. Even though the fairways are wide open because there aren't many trees, you still must contend with the standard cut of rough defining their borders. In addition, the Matanuska River flows alongside the course and comes into play on seven holes. The signature hole is #6, a 350-yard, par 4, because it offers a breathtaking view of the Knik Glacier from off its green. Another aspect that makes this course a great place to visit is the nearby airport that accommodates small aircraft. Many people from all around the world enjoy flying over and playing this well-maintained course. If you call the pro shop in advance, they will be happy to send someone over to pick you up from the airport and deliver you to the course. "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 4th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996.

Fairly nice course with great views, Aug 04, 2004
from Anchorage, AK
|A relatively straight and flat 18 hole course. The only true hazards are the Matanuska River, whose valley forms a lateral hazard along a few of the holes, a fence line for the local airport on a few holes, and some seasonal ponds. By midsummer, the ponds have dried up and you are left with grassy depressions. Still a place to avoid, but not nearly as imposing without the water. Several of the greens are guarded by bunkers, but they are not very deep. The course tends to be well kept, but expect a few bare spots early in the season.|
