Our 3 Favorite Oregon Coast Golf CoursesThe jaw-dropping scenery at many of the Oregon Coast golf courses highlights the ingenuity and intuition by architects to incorporate the region’s remarkable landscapes into their designs. Whether you are an everyday golfer or a burgeoning beginner, the best facilities will have something for varying abilities and skill levels. Below are three of our favorite places to hit the links on the Oregon Coast.
Manzanita Links, in the heart of Manzanita, Oregon, is ideal for the golfer with a penchant for unique courses with diverse fairways. This nine-hole, 2,192-yard, par-32 is carved out of a ravishing hillside that offers noteworthy vantage points of the wave-worn coastline. Characterized by weathered evergreen stands, well-manicured greens, and forgiving back tees, this hidden gem will give even intermediate golfers a chance at a hole in one. Best of all, the course is located in Manzanita proper, meaning your Meredith Lodging Manzanita vacation rental and all the town has to offer is likely just a short stroll away.
Agate Beach Golf Course, just north of Newport, has 2,905 yards of play from the longest tees. This par-36 facility is a nine-hole design with a slope rating of 109 and Bermuda grass fairways. The layout is level and features tumbling hills, panoramic vistas, and lush evergreens. Agate Beach is an easy, beautiful drive from Meredith Lodging vacation rentals in Newport, South Beach, Lincoln City, Bella Beach, and Depoe Bay.
One of the most challenging Oregon Coast golf courses, Salishan Golf Links boasts 6,501 yards and 18 holes of par-71 championship play. After a significant remodel by Jacobsen Hardy in 2004, Salishan is known for its formidable roughs, green complexes, and stunning views. Salishan Golf Links is adorned with old-growth woodlands and rugged cliffs among the upper echelons of Oregon’s coastal facilities. Salishan is conveniently located near all of Meredith Lodging’s Lincoln City and Depoe Bay vacation rentals and is just a minute up the road from our many beautiful cottage-style homes in Bella Beach.
