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
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

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...
