April 2014, course closure announced.

In a press release announcing the closure of one of Alaska's premier courses, Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson said it couldn't justify keeping all three of its courses open. JBER said it had considered a variety of options, such as raising greens fees as well as closing one or both of the 18-hole courses at Moose Run, before determining that closing Eagleglen was the best option.

My price pd was a military price so it was less expensive. My comments are based on the civilian price compared to other courses in the area.
