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. Both courses are located in a beautiful setting with tree lined fairways, views for miles and abundant wildlife.

The Hill course hasn't been touched since it opened and has fairly small greens but forgiving wide fairways. The fairways are lined with spruce and birch trees with the front nine somewhat rolling while the back side is flat. It plays to 6,519 yards and 119 slope from the back tees with several shorter tee boxes.

The Creek has Ship Creek running through the layout and is parkland style carved through the woods. It plays to 7,324 yards and 142 slope from the back tees, opened in 2000. It was designed by Robin Nelson and considered one of the better courses in the state.

Played the Creek course at Moose Run this summer. It's ranked #1 in the state of Alaska by Golf Digest and was also ranked the 49th most difficult course in America by GD. The course makes good use of the gently rolling land and crosses the Ship Creek on 3 holes. The creek was not used as well as it perhaps could have been, but I heard while playing that since it serves as a natural habitat to a large number of animals, the course had to be designed with large buffer areas surrounding the creek. Two holes also play through old US Army rock quarrys and I think those two holes are the two best on the course. The course plays to 7324 yards from the back tees, but to me, it didn't really seem exceptionally long. I felt like this course suffered only from the fact that they have a nearly non-existant growing season in Alaska. The fairways and greens were somewhat spotty and not grown in very well. If this course was built in a place where it was easier to get the grass to grow in fully, I feel like it would be an exceptional place.
