Now Florence City Golf Links
After missing last year we took the one hour plus trip to play the former Sandpines golf course. Sadly the nice course departed with the nice name. A tremendous downgrade. Bare spots in fairways ( disease?) all over. Weeds, not native grass, growing in sand traps. Tees were mostly bare ground. Greens not bad but course shows neglect big time. Rumor has it that real estate developers purchased it and some evidence of that with the unnatural encroachment near #8 green.
Sad as it was one of my top ten in Oregon. Will not play it again as it is.
You guys faulted on my tee time.
THEY HAD NO RECORD OF MY TEE TIME.
THAT SUCKED TO HAVE TO GO TO THE PRO SHOP AND CONFIRM MY TEE TIME.
DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN.
Beautiful course in sad decline
This has been my course of choice for a number of years. Always felt is was worth the hour and 45min drive from Corvallis. But this year I've noticed a definite decline in maintenance of the course. Initially I chalked it up to winter recovery. But after yesterday's round it's obvious that the current owners are not spending the money needed to maintain this wonderful Rees Jones track. From unmowed teeboxes to unraked sandtraps (many with grass and weeds growing in them) the course isn't worth the green fees they are asking. Until they get their act together I'll not be returning and I recommend others drive on by as well. Never thought I'd write a review like this of this course...sad.
Worth the trip
This ocean course is on par with other top rated ones without paying $$$$ This course has same wind. Just without the ocean view. I would play again
Another Great Deal from TeeOff/ Golf Now
An excellent course made more than excellent for the deal I got from TeeOff via my Annual Pass.
The course was in an excellent condition, especially since it’s a links course as I was expecting something less than what it really is. It’s undoubtedly affected by typical Oregon Coastal winds, occasional fog and of course the seasonal wet conditions, However there was no fog and no rain today but the wind was ever present which made for a less than optimal game for me. However, I really enjoyed this course and would recommend it to those who don’t mind the wind as much.
Course was fun and challenging. A nice sunny day, but very windy typical of Oregon coast.
Layout a plus
Greens soft and slow, enjoyed the routing and layout, stout Par 3’s, 16,17,18 make this course!!
Surprise additional expense; BEWARE!
Have played this course MANY times. This was the fourth time I have played on a Golfnow Hot deal during COVID. This was the FIRST time they have charged additional $$ for a second cart. Not just a small stipend, it cost me $36 dollars extra! You need to add details to your Hot Deal now letting people know in advance that they will only provide ONE golf cart with the Hot Deal. Had I known I would have brought my push cart and walked.
Given the amount of rain they got in the days prior, the course was in good shape and the greens
were rolling nice! We’ll be back!
Best bang for your buck...
Florence is hands down the absolute best combination of value and course conditions you can play on the Oregon Coast!
Excellent greens. Many tee options for all golfers. Would be a little tough to walk, fortunately had a cart
