Alaska Golf Courses

Some people collect spoons or shot glasses when they go on vacation, while others play a round of golf at every place they visit.

There are several good golf courses located around the state, many with picturesque views of the surrounding mountains. Granted, the golf playing season here is pretty short, but that’s all the more reason to tee off during the long summer days (and even nights). These courses come with the Alaska version of quirky hazards, too—as in, don’t be alarmed if a moose shows up on the green.

It’s a golfer­’s dream: Hit­ting a straight tee shot down a lush green fair­way, with snow-capped peaks climb­ing high around you.
