I'm not an expert golfer, so I lost 4 balls! Beautiful setting in Haines and friendly owners. Provided everything necessary, even boots or shoes as the course is a little mushy. Definitely not the most manicured, but hey you're in Alaska and it's what makes...More

Wonderful catamaran ride from our ship in Skagway to play at this course in Haines. The owners and staff were so nice! Built in wetlands makes it tough for the upkeep of this course as they're limited on what they're allowed to use for weed...More

The views from the course were amazing. But that's were it stopped. Golf was a nightmare as the course is a disaster. The fairways where nice but loose cut grass, bare spots, tore up spots, and overall bad upkeep burst our bubble. The artificial greens...More

Thank you for your review. This is a Links course, built on glacier silt. As the glaciers melt in this area, the land rises out of the sea. Vegetation is just now coming in to the golf course area, including some salt that prevents grass...More

What a great chance to say you have played golf in Alaska. Yes the greens are artificial, but who cares. What a great experience.

One of the most unique golf experiences ever. With views of snow covered mountains, bald eagles overhead, river water hazard, and lost ball opportunities galore, it cannot be equalled in any state side setting. However, it is an isolated, ecologically sensitive area that floods at...More
