Project Description

Project Overview

Anchorage Golf Club is a public course and ranked No. 1 in Alaska by Golfweek Magazine. The course was constructed in 1987 and enjoys the most play of all the courses in Alaska. The land is owned by the Municipality of Anchorage with the course operated under a master lease agreement.

Richardson | Danner’s work on behalf of the club focuses on improving conditions and preparing the course to host a major event. In 2020 the United States Golf Association (USGA) announced that the 2022 U.S. Senior Women’s Open would be held at the club. At the time, Alaska was the only U.S. state to not have hosted a major tournament of any tour, the PGA or USGA.

Our work over the past several years has involved greens re-building, bunker renovation plans, tree management, renovation of the practice range, a new short game area and design of a 6-hole “Little Bear Course” that will serve Alaska’s First Tee program. All work has been part of a comprehensive master plan developed for the course in concert with the Municipality of Anchorage.
