Alaska's scenic beauty is the perfect backdrop for many outdoor activities, not the least of which is a round of golf. Whether you're a real pro and have been playing for years or are just taking to the links for the first time with your friends who also happen to be relative novices, you'll find these courses in Anchorage offer the perfect blend of amazing scenery and excellent playing conditions, not to mention a great opportunity to improve your game.

Tanglewood Lakes Golf Club
Tanglewood Lakes Golf Club not only offers the usual hazards like water, traps and rough terrain, but you may also have to contend with the wildlife that lives among the landscaped course. That extra level of adventure makes this course a challenge, but it's still a favorite of many golfers for its convenient location and relative value for the money.

Par T Golf Course
The weather is never a factor when you decide to play a round of golf at the Par T Golf Course. This is a unique playing experience, as you need to bring your own clubs and choose to play on one of eight electronic machines that simulate playing on a real course. Among the choices, you can play on Pebble Beach, Doral, or any of the remaining six courses. Your shots are measured by the computer, so if you hit a tree or another golfer, it will count against you. The images on the panoramic screen are actual photographs of courses and not computer generated images. Par T is the perfect golfing destination during those dark, winter months in Anchorage.
