Golf aficionados will enjoy this outing to Wrangell's local golf course "Muskeg Meadows." Here in this pristine wilderness setting you can enjoy playing on 9 USGA rated fairways that rise out of the wetlands while bear, deer and moose can be seen grazing nearby.
Sitting atop a foundation of byproducts from the once flourishing Wrangell timber industry, the 32-acre course offers such a unique golf experience that it boasts a 30-tournament schedule, highlighted by the annual Alaska Airlines tournament. While playing, golfers can check out the newly added activities shelter, which serves to provide a location for guests to rest, chat with locals, order a burger and a beer or view the interpretive signage detailing the course's conception. "Golf in the wilds of Alaska, between the snow-capped mountains, in the middle of the rainforest", explains Pro Shop Manager Terree Pino. "Here you'll find the friendliest people in Southeast Alaska and the coffee is always on."
Come and test your skill as you avoid the large jutting rock on the course's signature ninth hole. Observe the abundance of wild flowers and wide variety of birds as you walk the course, but keep a close eye on your ball -- Ravens have been known to steal balls as they rest gently on the greens. Don't worry, because if you have a witness, you'll be awarded a free drop according to the "Raven Rule." Golf clubs, balls and cart are included in this unique outing. After 9 holes, transportation will be provided back to the ship.
