Anchorage is Alaska's golfing capital, with several public courses. They won't compare to offerings in Phoenix or San Diego, but courses are open until 10 pm on long summer days, and at some courses the mountain views put the sights of most other courses to shame.
Anchorage Golf Course. Anchorage Golf Course has 18 holes and, as of the 2011 season, a new pro shop and bar. 3651 O'Malley Rd., South Anchorage, Anchorage, AK, 99507. 907/522–3363. www.anchoragegolfcourse.com. 18 holes. 6,600 yds. Par 72. Green Fee: $37/$63. Facilities: Driving range, putting green, pitching area, golf carts, pull carts, rental clubs, pro shop, golf academy/lessons, restaurant, bar.
Moose Run Golf Course. Moose Run offers two 18-hole, scenic courses; the Creek Course boasts the longest layout in the state and is more challenging than the Hill Course. Moose Run has an unusual hazard: moose and bears live in the nearby woods. Keep your eyes peeled for moose and bears, and if an animal ambles onto the green, by all means let it play through. 27000 Arctic Valley Rd., East Anchorage, Anchorage, AK, 99505. 907/428–0056. www.mooserungolfcourse.com. 18 holes. 7,324/5,183 yds. Par 72. Green fee: $49. Driving range, putting green, pitching area, golf carts, pull carts, rental clubs, pro shop, golf academy/lessons, restaurant.
