The Peters Creek Frisbee golf course, located 45 minutes outside of Anchorage, is a delightful escape from the city.
The wonderful smell of nature’s perfumes fills the forest trails as groups of frolfers trek down the dirt paths between holes, on a course that is moderately difficult.
A majority of the baskets are hidden by trees, and unfortunately are not marked by the usual yellow rim on top. Even for an experienced frolfer, this makes spotting the basket a challenge.
Despite the fact that this course is in the woods, the undergrowth isn’t too thick; making discs easy to spot, even if the baskets are not.
Peters Creek is no Westchester, prepare to spend a solid hour and a half when playing this course.
For those of you who never been to Peters Creek it is easy to spot. The Glenn Highway will take you past Eagle River just a few miles where you will spot the Peters Creek exit. After taking the exit, take your first right and follow it down until the road ends. There you will find the small parking lot that quickly fills on a sunny summer day.
Take your time while frolfing this free course; take in the singing birds, as well as the rushing river that offers an unusual water hazard to several holes.
The course is a little bit muddy, and throw-off areas have no platforms- so be careful when you throw, so as not to slip in the mud. Wear a good pair of shoes for traction, and bring a bottle of bug spray for mosquitoes.
The course is one that anyone should feel welcome to attempt, it may be harder for beginners but is good practice for high-level frolfing.
