From the start its is a wonderful experience. Friendly staff from the clubhouse to the bar and food afterwards. If you love the game of golf you need to play this course! First you start on a beautiful golf range which is next to the ocean and then your caddie gathers your things and makes sure you're squared away. Then... More

Beautiful views of the ocean and nearby properties. Immaculate conditioning. Fast greens and fairways. But when the wind blows - WATCH OUT! Have fun and "Tee It Forward."

The golf course is both challenging and beautiful, juxtaposed to the ocean/nature at its best. The bar and restaurant at the finish of the 18th hole are excellent. Sunset at the bar, sipping a fine martini may be hard to beat.

My husband said he enjoyed it as much as playing Pebble. It is extremely challenging but he thought that views of the ocean and the intracoastal were spectacular.

This place is all about the views and atmosphere. The service is top notch, efficient and plenty of staff to keep you well fed and beverage filled. I didn't think the food was that amazing to be the best on the island. However for the price it was really great. I would go here again just for the view of... More

Planned this family vacation, so two members of our family could play this golf course. My husband and son were NOT disappointed. Yes, it was a bit expensive; but they were both thrilled with the venue, the view, and the experience of playing here. Not too many courses like this in Oregon. The staff at the club house were very... More

I'm sure the price per round was ridiculous, but I would go back today if I could. A great golf course, that makes you want to try it again. I won't come back in August. Just too dang hot. I also would not come back and play the other "lesser courses" associated with the resort. Especially not in August. We... More

A fantastic golf course. An overall great experience with the caddies and walking the course. Get to really soak up the surroundings. The course and staff are great. The course is tough, but playable. It was not a really windy day either.

We had a great morning at the Ocean Course. Our caddy, Jeff, was really good -- he knew where we should hit each shot and how to read the greens. Being first off in the morning, our foursome completed the round in under four hours. Cannot say the same for the groups following us as we had lunch on the... More

This was fun to play with my two sons. The front nine plays thru marshland, and the back nine plays thru dunes. We started on the front nine on Monday morning.. morning is a walking tour with caddies (double bags).. be sure you get a partner that agrees to play your tees. We got around the front nine in about... More
