Moose Run is located 15 miles east of Anchorage at the base of the Chugach Mountains, and is the world's most northernmost 36 hole golf course. The original 9 holes of the Hill was built in 1952 by a company of combat engineers, and a second nine was built in 1955. Both courses are located in a beautiful setting with tree lined fairways, views for miles, and all kinds of wildlife. The Hill course hasn't been touched since it opened and has fairly small greens, but forgiving wide fairways. It plays from 6519 yards and 119 slope from the back tees. The fairways of both courses are lined with spruce and birch trees, with the front nine somewhat rolling, and the back side flat. The Creek has Ship Creek running through the course. It plays from 7324 yards, and 142 slope from the back tees and opened in 2000, designed by Robin Nelson, and is considered one of the better courses in the state. It's a long course, and in fact has a par 5 at 640 yards. Two of the holes, number 6 and 11, play through reclaimed gravel pits and are really cool. The Creek course is the favorite of the locals, and is a good solid challenge to play.
