Neither rain nor fog could stop 18 teams from tearing up the tundra last weekend on Alaska’s southernmost pop-up golf course.

In addition to a nine-hole course, the annual Tundra Golf Classic featured a marshmallow long drive. The Fire Department flipped burgers, and a campfire offered warmth and s'more opportunities, so even non-serious golfers had plenty of reasons to play.

Winning Team: Kraken Squad, with a score of 50.
Honorable Mention: Make Tundra Golf Great Again . . . with a reported score of 867-5309.
