Put your money in the jar and pick your clubs from the many in the cluhouse (or more precisely shack). The course is beautifully and uniquely primitive. My wife and I played for my birthday and it is on my short list of most memorable birthdays.

My wife and I played 9 holes here. The course is generally pretty rough but the scenery is outstanding and you definitely won't forget that you played here. We got a real kick out of it. It turned out that the night we played was the only night it didn't rain while we were in Gustavus so we felt pretty... More

A fun and funky course with pull carts and an unusual array of used clubs. Just put your money in the jar and you're on your own! The antique tractors dotted through out the course were as picture worthy as the beautiful mountain vistas in the background!

Golf balls, tees, a pull cart, used clubs, and beverages... More

Alaska at this time of the year only gets dark around midnight until 3am in the morning. So we played golf after dinner with Chef Jon from Glacier Bay Country Inn. It is done on a honor system by putting $15 per person which includes used golf clubs ( this was fun finding the right club to hit your shot)... More

It was a really great course. The owner is a really great guy, and has lived in Gustavus for 40 years, I would definitely recommend. Plus he has rugged cabins for cheaper weekly rentals if you need a place to crash and store gear while backpacking or other excursions
