I did end up with a DGCR member visiting! Hope to see more of you all next cruise season!
I would definitely be down to work out a trip specifically for a week of AK DG for Summer 2024 if you'd be into a bit more than a day or two of guiding. That state is one of those bucket list places I feel like movies and pictures will never encapsulate. Looked up flight costs and wow, it's the same price to fly to Juneau as it is to Pittsburgh from Tampa.I did end up with a DGCR member visiting! Hope to see more of you all next cruise season!
This! This! This!ill slightly echo and say alaska is the most beautiful place ive been to and the only place so far that ive missed (i did fairbanks and healy/denali)
if you get the chance id highly recommend taking it
same hereThis! This! This!
Also, as PieMethod alluded to it's not really that expensive or difficult to get to. At least the main cities like Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau.
I'm definitely planning on returning within the next few years.
I can strongly recommend R-Ogre’s tour guide services. Thanks again!
Back home after playing 7 courses in Alaska and 2 in British Colombia, bringing me up to 49 states and 2 countries.
Non-disc golf benefits included majestic scenery, breaching humpback whales, ridiculously sunny weather, visiting friends and family, great seafood, reindeer tacos, and (strangest of all) randomly running into my cousin on the boat.
Main disappointment was playing less than half of Kincaid Park before a rather large bull moose ended our round.
When I was a kid, we were on a float trip near Yellowstone and a moose cow with calf crossed about 100 yards in front of our rafts. The guides looked scared, which really drove home that all the warnings about moose encounters are no joke. Thankfully it was a very slow moving section and they crossed without us getting too close.
How close did the moose get? I saw one when I played there too. About 100' away, just sitting and munching some grass. Fortunately, it was on a path between holes and there was another way around.Main disappointment was playing less than half of Kincaid Park before a rather large bull moose ended our round.

Yikes! Yeah I definitely would have done the same. The one I saw was sitting down and never made a move towards me.We rounded a corner and spotted the moose maybe 30-40 yards away. The moose turned to face us and took a few steps in our direction. Dunno if he was responding to proximity, our umbrellas, or the fact that I just had a disc kick off a tree in his direction. Anyway, he did not look like a happy moose.
Niece who lives in Anchorage and is an experienced hiker suggested giving the moose a wide berth. Unfortunately he was standing at a choke point (holes 6 or 7, maybe?) so we could not figure out a good way to continue playing.
The funny thing is that we kept trying to warn joggers about the moose and their attitude was "Eh, whatever."
