Signature hole #16. Your tee shot must be left center to avoid the Scottish style bunkers on the right. The green is surrounded by hazards. Water, deep bunkers, and rough are waiting. The massive coastal sand dunes can be seen in the distance.

Nice course. In good condition, greens were cut for a fairly quick pace. Several holes with doglegs right or left. Overall a fun and mostly forgiving course. Give it a try.

Fun Course!

First time playing here and I had a great time. I lucked out on the weather as it was sunny, 65-70 degrees with very little wind. The course is beautiful , fun and challenging. At first I thought this was going to be easy but it got progressively harder then leveled out as the round continued. Seeing sand dunes on the course was so cool! The staff is friendly and helpful.

I couldn't wait to tell all my friends about this place as I thought I discovered a gem on the Oregon coast. We are all pandemic golfers (16-20 handicap) and are hooked. We mostly play the public courses in Portland so places like this are a treat.

Check it out if you have the chance!

Oregon coast golf at its finest

First time at Florence golf links and I was welcomed kindly by staff, the amenities and course lay out were phenomenal. The course played firm and responsive and has a great mix of obstacles. Will definitely play it again.

Fun Coast Golf Course

We play this course at least once a summer, and it's always worth the trip from Vancouver, WA, where we live. Fun weekend of golf and ocean views.

Great experience at Florence Golf Links…

What a great experience today at Florence Golf Links. This was a downtime round during a road trip from England. Chris in the pro shop was really friendly and super helpful. I booked my round through the GolfNow app (got a nice discount) and borrowed some clubs. The course is a true links, well designed and in great condition. If you are in the area I highly recommend a visit.

Vacation Golf

This is the 2nd time I’ve played here.. Once in the winter, and once in the summer. Both rounds were extremely enjoyable. I’m looking forward to the next time.

Challenging

Course has generous fairways but if you veer off just a little and land in dunes you'll be faced with many sidehill lies. We struggled with our ball above the feet and below the feet shots. Enjoyable round, great finishing holes. Love the coastal weather.

We had an early tee time and yes had to deal with fog for a few holes so we missed some of the views, but there were only a few other golfers so we basically had the course to ourselves. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute and saw wildlife while we played which added an extra thrill to our game, 5 star experience.

Great Overall

We got the “Hot Deal” and what a bargain. Course has a problem with some of the fairway grass is spotty but greens and tees were pure. Layout is fantastic. Just need a real bathroom on the course somewhere. Overall though one of the best courses on Oregon Coast and best quality course for price around.

Pretty good

Great time playing course. First time and had nothing bad to say. The fairways had alot of dead spots but I'm not from the area so maybe that's typical for around here. Very nice layout. Not a bad price especially when we got 20% off. Would recommend.
