The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So this Saturday I will be departing from Seattle for an Alaska cruise.  Lucky for me, the wife is down with golf so I will be trying to squeeze in some golf when we dock.  I saw that there are courses in Juneau and Skagway.  Is there anyone from these towns that would want to hook up for a round or two?

I live up in Anchorage which is much more north than you're going. If I had the means I'd hook up, otherwise come here.
Where all is the cruise going. If you dock in Seward they have a 9 hole course. There are also courses in Homer and Kenai (to go with the Anchorage group). Send out where you'll be and when.
look on the pdga courses page ..... i went on a cruise last year and hooked up with jd .... contact guy for the juneau course, he took me out to their course which was terrific and we had a ball even tho it pissed down heavy rain .... i was very pleased to get that game in ..... apparently there is also a course in Skagway up the road a bit ... i don't know if it's tonals or what ..... email jd and maybe he knows the contact person .. good luck
i have heard through the grapevine that the seward course designer really did a poor job on designing this course, i will be there in july and might have to try it out and see for myself
We had a big tourney there in Juneau last year and it was CRAZY windy and rainy the whole weekend we were there. The only thing that saved me that weekend was my Star Xcal. It is a great and beautiful course as it is in a rain forest, but can be a death trap if you don't pay attention to where you're going. Johnny is the contact there and is a real cool guy. I'd stop there and play if you have the chance.
It was pretty rough for the opening, definitely creates a challenge. I'd like to see what it plays like almost a year later.
Yeah, that was a rough day last fall Chris. It has potential and they didn't have much to work with, but it is what it is. They do have two separate tees for AM and Pro, it is a really short 9 hole course and maybe they've cleared some of trees and such to make actual fairways. I'm just glad to see another course around and it was built for the kids through the EDGE program.
Those two cities are the only stops that I can find that have courses. I think that the Skagway course is tonals, but it looks like a gorgeous course. Thanks for the replies everyone.
I just got back from my trip from alaska and played the seward course and to be totally honest coming from an avid disc golf junkie i wouldnt even waste my time on this course, I tried to make sense of the course but ended up just throwing my hands in the air and that was about it, it has absolutely impossible bends, no fairways, no regards to the walking paths, (a number of holes threw blindly over 2 walking paths), no regard for flow and really was just absolute garbage, it really is a shame due to the fact that it has brand new innova baskets ( which the installers couldnt even figure out how to install due to the chains being twisted and tangled) new cement tee pads (which they left a smooth finish so its slicker than snot) and beautiful tee signs but in all actuality this course is a joke, i believe whoever headed the design and course installation up should pay back every dime that it cost to build this course. This may sound harsh but its real, this course IMO is a complete bust.
that's too bad ...... better to find a classic course for sure ...... maybe the folks will see this and maybe do a do over.
While I was in Anchorage I played Kincade park all the time and they have a great layout but I went to play a little course cross town going down spenard rd I think and the expierance was totally different, it was a little hole in the wall and very cufusing layout that made no sense.
There is a long story to this course and how it got built and all things that it took to get it in place. The ADGA really didn't have a hand in this or it would have turned out better. We did explain to the athletic director that there needs to be some trimming done to create some fairways. There are a couple of holes that turned out fine, but most aren't really feasible.
