Detailed description of Homer Golf Course | The Tips Golf Course

Homer Golf Course aka The Tips Golf Course, previously named Shorline Golf Course, and originally named Kachemak Bay Lynx Golf Course, is a Public, 9 hole, par-3 golf course located in Homer, Alaska.

The course first opened for public play in 1986. The course was designed by Dave Schoar.

"I built two holes in my front yard and then, after I retired from teaching in 1982, I thought I'd add a hole or two every year. By the mid-80s, I had up to nine holes," said Dave Schroer of a plan that eventually spread across 10 acres at mile 6.5 East End Road. "In 1986, I finally opened to the public."

What was it that inspired him to build his own golf course? And then share it with the public?

"I came up here in 1953 and there were no courses to play," said Schroer, who credits the Birch Ridge Golf Course in Soldotna for his interest in building a course a little closer to home. "I think that's probably where I got the bug."

Located on the course site is also a Bed & Breakfast Guest House.

The course is located 6.5 miles from downtown Homer on East End Road.

The 9-hole Homer Golf Course plays to a maximum 9 hole distance of 901 yards and a par-27.
