I consider Kincaid my home course, so I'll make an attempt at a review - even if you don't think you'll ever make it up here.
There are two sets of tees, and at least two pin locations on every hole. The course was finished in time for the Alaska State Champs in July of 2008, so it's still relatively new. It is however starting to wear in nicely and the fairways are fairly well defined. The rough, however, is extremely rough. There are large spruce and cottonwood trees, as well as dense thickets of willow and alder. Devil's Club abounds, and I frequently leave the course with quite a few thorns under my skin. The course is what I would call wooded, although there are many shots that can be aired out a bit, particularly from the pro tees. Many of the holes (actually just about EVERY hole) involve elevation changes - several of these offer some spectacular views of Cook Inlet and distant mountain ranges (McKinley is visible on a clear day). From the am tees there are quite a few deuce opportunities, but I believe the SSA is right around 50. From the pro tees placement becomes quite crucial on many of the longer holes and the course plays much harder. The SSA from the pros is around 60 IIRC. My scores on the pro tees range from my PR of 63 on up to the high 70s, while I generally average 58-59 from the ams, depending on the pin locations (I have been playing 3.5 years and am currently rated right around 900). When Dave Feldberg came and played here for our 2009 States, he established the course record of 54 from the pro tees, which was 1080+.
Many of the holes require you to hit a precise line through the trees, often with a limited ceiling as well due to the canopy. There are also plenty of opportunities to take big risks and be rewarded, or find yourself in deep rough eating a stroke or two just to get back to the fairway. Most holes offer a few different options off the tee, so you'll see players throwing anything from an over the top BH to a thumber to a FH roller and anything in between. This is probably what I like most about this course, as I don't step up to every tee and have an established shot that I always throw. Sometimes I feel more comfortable throwing the FH on pro #4, but other times I like trying to flex a BH under the canopy. Some players will bomb over the top off this same teepad.
What you've heard regarding the scenery and wildlife is all true. I've seen the biggest bull moose I've ever laid eyes on (I've lived in AK most of my life and have had more than my share of wilderness experiences), black and brown bears, porcupines, rabbits, etc.
Wild raspberries are starting ripen in many areas of the course and sometimes I'll take a few minutes just to eat a handful before returning to my round. My only complaint with Kincaid is that many of the local litterbugs that have trashed the more urban courses in town have taken their garbage to the wilds of Kincaid Park with them. If it weren't for several dedicated individuals who routinely play their rounds with a trash bag, the course wouldn't always look like the beautiful gem that it is. Trash cans have no place here as the course is essentially wilderness and we don't need to be creating problems with bears in the area.
Just about everyone I've talked with who has come from out of Alaska and played Kincaid has had nothing but the highest of praise for the course. It will challenge the best of the best, but will also be enjoyed by the newer player as well.
