Palmer Golf Course


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Palmer Golf Course Est. 1990

Where2Golf says: 

Palmer Golf Course is located just over 40 miles northeast of Anchorage, alongside the Palmer Municipal Airport to the west and the Matanuska River to the east. Here in the heart of the Mat-Su Valley you'll find a pleasant open parkland layout surrounded by ravishing mountain scenery ... whichever way you look.

From the relatively flat open terrain golfers are treated to spectacular views of Pioneer Peak, the Matanuska River and Knik Glacier. Course description, images and other details to follow soon.

Did you know?

Although the Russians came to Alaska in 1741, bringing the traditions of the Russian Orthodox religion to the indigenous peoples of the region, it was in the early 1890s that entrepreneur George W. Palmer set-up a trading post on the Matanuska River, near to present-day Palmer. The town was later named after Palmer, who was born in Erie County, Pennsylvania and arrived in Alaska aged 38 in 1893, following a stint as a logger in Seattle.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
