Often referred to as the “hardest, easy course in America” by Alaska golf Professionals, Birch Ridge will provide players of all levels with a stern, but fair test of skill. Just minutes from the world renowned Kenai River, Birch Ridge has been a preferred destination for visitors since 1973.

During play you’ll enjoy wonderful views of Mt. Redoubt and Mt. Illiama. You may even run into some Alaskan wildlife. Be sure to let all Moose, Caribou, and Bear play through! The giant Cottonwood tree guarding the right side of the 5th hole is also the home of an Eagle’s nest. Maybe our local Eagles will share a bite of Wild Salmon with you!


Bird Homestead Golf Course is a picturesque drive 11.8 miles down funny river Road. The Course is the original homestead oF Elmer and Pat Bird. They homesteaded the property over 50 years ago.

Bird Homestead is a full service golf course with riding carts, pull carts and rental clubs available. It is a registered course with the USGA. The driving range is a novelty that draws folks out just to hit a bucket of balls. The range is a 250-yard long pond and the general width of the fairways. Golfers propel floater balls off into the pond, the wind eventually blows them to the side where they are dip-netted, cleaned and sent right back out. The range was designed so that if drives hit the water, golfers can stay on the fairways. There is also a full putting practice green. This privately owned, public, 9-hole regulation golf course offers driving carts, rental clubs, teaching pro and discount for seniors. To make your tee time, call 907.260.GOLF.
