Guest Comments

My wife and I very much enjoyed the golfing excursion to Valley of the Eagles in Haines Alaska. The course was very scenic with eagles soaring overhead and wild iris growing everywhere in the rough. Fairways were a little wet, but we weren't expecting to see Augusta National conditions. By inventing some "local" rules, we played well and had a great adventure. They furnished excellent sets of clubs and we rented a golf cart. When finished, we were treated to some local history by the owner, whose granddaughter was also our tour guide for the day. Highly recommended!
