The beautiful grounds of Meier Lake Resort got even more impressive this summer, as Alaska's first Professional Disc Golf Association Championship course was unveiled, The Reserve at Meier Lake.
The disc golf course sits on the resort's 120-acres and winds it way through the forest, with amazing views around every corner. It was designed by Eric McCabe, the 2010 world disc golf champion, who designs courses throughout the country. The Reserve at Meier Lake is his first Alaska course, and is the only championship-caliber course in the state. The course was unveiled during the Meier Lake Classic earlier this summer that drew top disc golfers from around the country.
McCabe started designing the course in 2018, with work being done preparing the grounds throughout 2019. In summer, 2020, the dream became a reality as The Reserve of Meier Lake opened for play.
The course features 18 holes with 36 baskets, giving golfers the opportunity to play long or short on each hole. The 17th hole even features a tee pad on a dock, bringing Meier Lake into play.
Meier Lake Resort is located at 6059 Wasilla-Fishhook Road, near the base of Hatcher Pass. The resort has a private lake, 12 cabins and a central lodge facility with a commercial kitchen. It is a popular wedding venue and is perfect for retreats, family getaways and vacations. Each room has a wooden deck with chairs, heated floors and ceiling fans.
