Rare hot weather encouraged record participation at the Aleutian Tundra Golf Classic.   

More than 20 teams teed off in the tundra last weekend in Unalaska's annual golf tournament. The tournament includes nine holes of golf each day. 

Two teams tied as this year's tournament champs.  Based on the honor system and score cards turned in at the end of the second day, North Pacific Fuel and Matson tied by scoring 57, followed closely by the Babymakers at 61.  Each of the four members on the winning teams will receive 10GB of OptimERA Wi-Fi.

Neither rain nor fog could stop 18 teams from tearing up the tundra last weekend on Alaska’s southernmost pop-up golf course.

In addition to a nine-hole course, the annual Tundra Golf Classic featured a marshmallow long drive. The Fire Department flipped burgers, and a campfire offered warmth and s'more opportunities, so even non-serious golfers had plenty of reasons to play.

Winning Team: Kraken Squad, with a score of 50.
Honorable Mention: Make Tundra Golf Great Again . . . with a reported score of 867-5309.
