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.
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. The directional signs aren't that bad, but the tee pads could be better. The fairways are tight and short with a lot of trees on either side. It's not the kind of course where you can really let one rip. There is only one real elevated tee pad hole, but it's riddled with trees making it a lottery shot.
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. It's a real full 18 holes, which is more than you can get at most of the other courses in Anchorage. It's also a closer alternative for those coming from the north. There is a great group of guys that hold a meet up league.

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.

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.
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.
