Golfing Courses on the Oregon Coast

Golfing on the Oregon Coast is something very unique. Personally, I'm not a golfer, but I know many people who are and absolutely love the sport. Although, I have been known to take my wife out for a rousing game of Putt-Putt on occasion. ;)

The maintaining of the natural coastal surroundings makes for some of the most interestingly-designed courses around. If you are an expert attempting sub-par games, you'll be challenged by the uniqueness of the courses, while providing an average player a fair round. 

Having all the top courses within a days drive of one another, there and back, sure doesn't hurt either. Make sure to stop into all the pro shops for the latest in equipment and apparel.

Players from around the country make their way to the Pacific NW beaches just to play 18-holes. That says a lot about how good the courses are. In fact, Bandon Dunes Resort was rated #2 by Golf Digest in their "75 Best Golf Resorts" report. It also made the top spot in GOLF Magazine, as it surpassed Pebble Beach as America's top public course.
