Club History

Muskeg Meadows was the first nine-hole regulation course in Southeast Alaska. U.S.G.A. rated Moderate/Difficult due to narrow fairways with dense woods lining either side. The course is a result of cooperative efforts of local industry, city government, and individuals.

The facility includes a covered 8-station, 250-yard practice range as well as a practice putting green. Standard golf supplies and snacks are sold. Full sets of golf clubs (right & left handed) for men, women and children are available to rent, along with power and hand carts. There is a unique clubhouse/pro shop, where the coffee pot is always on and strangers are welcomed by the friendliest people in Southeast.

Established in 1993, the Wrangell Golf Club was formed for the sole purpose of developing and operating a golf course in the community of Wrangell. Construction began in 1995 and the greens were installed in 1998. The Wrangell Golf Club is a non-profit organization created by local golf enthusiasts. The first weekend in May is our annual membership meeting, dinner, and tournament. There are over 600 members worldwide, including golfers from as far away as Tokyo and Singapore. The Wrangell Golf Club is very proud of Muskeg Meadows and we invite you to join us.
