Bird Homestead Golf Course

37001 Funny River Road
Soldotna, AK 99669



Bird Homestead Golf Course is a dream come true for a real pioneer family. Elmer and Pat Bird, and their children and grandchildren. The Birds moved to the Funny River Area to homestead in 1959. They raised 3 children and numerous grandchildren on the homestead.

With the addition of a paved road to the area, the family decided they needed to do something with the land that they no longer raised hay, cattle and horses on. The dream of a golf course emerged. With the help of family and friends, a dream has become a reality. The dream was to make this a family affair and as you play this scenic course that abounds with wildlife and peace and quiet, you will realize that the dream is materializing right before your eyes. The men will enjoy the distances and greens. The ladies will enjoy the tee boxes that are aimed at the greens. There will be work continuing all summer on the course with improvements  every day.
