Michigan-based architect Jerry Matthews, former President of the ASGCA, designed the 18-hole Chena Bend golf course at Fort Wainwright and it’s known as the “Farthest North Military Course” in the United States.
Measuring 7,012 yards from the longest tees and playing to a par of 72, the course is managed by the US Army’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation program, an organisation that provides support and leisure services to soldiers, their families, military retirees and associated civilians.Situated between the east side of the Fort Wainwright airfield and the Chena River, with a number of the holes routed alongside the fast flowing waters, Chena Bend is an ideal course for beginners but challenging enough for the more experienced, low handicapped golfer.
This course is inside a military base, make sure you give yourself enough time to go through security. Decent layout, the Chena River comes into play on many holes. If you want to play midnight golf head a little further north to North Star golf club
