Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: We came to Alaska from Colorado in 1968, Pat & Myrna Cowan with our 4 children and our dog. We now have 13 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Our work background includes Banking, Insurance and the Golf Industry. We are very active in our Community and our Church and our hobby and business is golf. We love Soldotna and Alaska and could not even think about living anywhere else. All of our children and most of our grandchildren still live in the state of Alaska. Most all of our grandchildren have worked on this property at one time or another.

Why the Owner Chose Soldotna:
We actually designed and built these Cottages in 1992 and at that time we were partners in the property, we later bought out our partners in 1993. For most people, Alaska is not a designation for golf, however once here whether it's for fishing, sight-seeing, bird watching, hunting, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, etc. many people also choose to play golf in the midnight sun or just to say "we played golf in Alaska". If you are staying at one of our facilities, we off 50% off on Greens fees and Rental clubs.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Golf any time of the day including late eveing golf due to the long daylight hours in Alaska, golf practice facilities including Driving Range, Chipping Green and Putting green. Our lounge & snack bar "Pat's Place" featuring Myrna's famous sandwiches, Hot Dogs, beverages of your choice including "Guiness on Tap" and many other snacks. Grilling on our Barbeques on the Cottage Decks while watching golfers play our signature hole # 2 next to the pond in front of the Cottages.
