Pros: -This course is just a short drive from Anchorage.

-It offers 18 holes in what was once a campground within a birch tree forest.

-This is also one of the cleanest courses in the State as all 18 have a garbage can.

-This course will force/teach you to throw straight.

-Tee boxes were put in just a couple of years ago. It was much needed.

-Alternate pins will be completed in the summer of '16.

-On rainy/sunny/windy days you'll be glad to be there.
-Because it's secluded, a lot of the Yahoo's like to play there.

-Parking can be a problem during summer days.

-The bugs/mosquitos are a problem but who can you blame for that?
Other Thoughts: If there was one course I could put in my back yard it would be Peter's Creek. This course taught me how to throw straight and I will forever be thankful for this course as it taught me the sport.

Pros: Excellent technical course shooting through the woods for the entire time.
Cons: They must have just changed holes are because when you get between holes 6-10 there are very few signs and the numbers are off.
Other Thoughts: Definitely one of the better courses.

The "other" Anchorage course

Pros: There are only two non paying courses worth checking out in the Anchorage area, this is one of them. It's a course that you don't have to bring a lot of discs for and hard to lose the ones you do bring. The holes are challenging for their length with good flow. There is lots of shade from the sun on hot days and it's relatively quiet with few distractions. It's also a great place to just pop in for a quick game because of the hole lengths, low usage, and its proximity to the highway. This course is the perfect place to learn how to control your shots. Wind isn't usually a factor in these woods. Since I last played this course concrete teepads were added and the layout changed a little, likely for the better overall. I especially liked the new hole 7
Cons: Bugs, it's bad. Worse than any course I have played before. It gets pretty muddy after a rain, which happens far too much in the summer unfortunately. These fairways are covered in tree roots that sometimes make approaches unpredictable and become big tripping/slipping hazards when wet. I found it hard to get a good stance or footing for throws because of it too. The directional signs aren't that bad, but the tee signs are a mix of permanent and laminated paper. Some baskets were a dangerously close the the teepad of the next hole. Hole 8 has no line or fairway. The fairways are tight and short with a lot of trees on either side, which isn't a con, but there aren't necessarily lines or fairways on some holes either.
Other Thoughts: Sometimes you have to be thankful for what you got. It's not Kincaid, but it does do a decent job as a short technical course. This is the type of course demands accuracy and patients. The course itself is very quiet and tranquil and it's a real full 18 holes, which is more than you can get at most of the other courses in Anchorage.

Pros: Nice lines and a few long drive par 3's The creek makes this course almost relaxing. the grounds keepers do a good job of keeping the course fairly clean and its always a fun course to play.
Cons: Tee's could be better marked and or pro tee's would be nice on some of the shorter holes.
Other Thoughts: Be careful on Hole 15 to not over throw your first or 2nd throw. its about 300' to a un see able drop off to the creek and death of your disc... unless you know the course and or scout the hole first.

 Nice Course

Review By: Umshewa
Played: 8  Reviewed: 4  Exp: 22.2 Years
Pros: This course uses the grounds very well. Nice long holes make you work your arm to get par.
Cons: Like others have stated, it is quite muddy and you should be ready to get a little dirty. Nothing major as long as it hasn't rained recently. Lots of trees but that's the fun part...always fun to chop trees while playing golf. No really markers to tell you where the next hole is. Must take map if never played, it is easy to miss holes.
Other Thoughts: Great for the family and very popular. Lots of trees but that's the fun part...always fun to chop trees while playing golf.

  Good Course

Pros: Great setup, nice variation of holes. Very good use of the area.
Cons: Can be pretty muddy, easy to lose a disc if not watching carefully.
Other Thoughts: hole #8 really neat you end up playing over people. Go on a sunny day, that way the ground isn't so muddy. also a good amount of right banks do if your right handed good to use the tomahawk.

Pros: Great setup and design. Not much to complain about.
Cons: Could have better tee boxes.
Other Thoughts: Great design and beautiful location. On sunny days the sun peaks through the course in almost a majestic way. As you approach the last three holes the creeks roaring waters create a refreshing environment as you finish the course.
