Bear Valley Golf Course is appropriately named and another well kept secret in Kodiak. Located about eight miles from town, on Antone Larsen Bay road, adjacent to Buskin Lake, this 9 hole course is well groomed and has spectacular scenery. Deer, fox and other critters frequent the course. Bears always get to play through. You won't lose a stroke if a fox retrieves your ball and runs away with it. One bold fox was seen dragging off the flag stick on the forth hole.
No carts are allowed on the course. Clubs and other necessities can be rented or purchased at the club house. The course is owned and operated by the United Stated Coast Guard. Military discounts apply. Greens fees for civilians are about $25 for 18 holes.
NOTE: Bug repellant is a must on warm days and when there's no wind on the coarse!
