Course Reviews

Decent course, but not quality as I've come to expect for military courses. Greens were as slow as any I've ever played, fairways were patchy, and sand traps were full and easy to play from. Pro shop was basically empty. Snack bar took over 30 mins to prepare a hot dog. A cheeseburger took nearly 45 mins. Driving range was in good shape, but many of the balls that came from the machine were sliced or damaged in some fashion. I'll probably play it again because there isn't much else to choose from around here, but if you have other options I'd pass this place up.

An excellent course, well maintained by the Military. Need to be accurate on the drive as several of the fairways are narrow, overall one of the top three or four in Alaska.
