JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, ALASKA — There won’t be a mulligan for a military-operated golf course in Anchorage. Officials with Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson announced Monday that the Eagleglen Golf Course won’t open in 2014. The military operates Eagleglen and two courses at Moose Run. The decision to shed one was prompted by a 37 percent decrease in players in the last decade and losses of over $2 million in the last five years. Most of the players on the courses are civilians, and Anchorage golfers earlier encouraged the military to keep all courses open. Eagleglen will be open for cross-country skiing in the winter. Summer uses are being investigated. The Anchorage base is not the first to lose a golf course. Officials say base golf courses have closed in Florida, Nebraska and Kansas in recent years.
