Best golf courses: Alaska

In Alaska, we discovered long courses designed by renowned architects and 6,600 yard 18-course lush layouts with mountain vistas. Alaska, northwest of Canada, is the largest and most sparsely populated U.S. state. It's known for its diverse terrain of open spaces, mountains and forests, with abundant wildlife and many small towns. It’s a destination for outdoor activities like skiing, mountain biking, kayaking and golf. To make the most of your golfing trip, and to help in your planning, you can look up the location of the best courses in Alaska on our customised maps.
