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.

It’s still very nice

Can’t imagine how glorious it was in its prime, I love the settings coastal pines and some rural feel to it but hurry new homes are being built near some fairways already. I had a great time!

Awful conditions for a $90 golf course

We played there today and I was appalled at the condition of the course. Living an hour away, I used to play here two or three times a year. No more. Huge expanses of no grass in the fairways…had to move the ball on almost every shot in order to hit. As a result I can’t honestly post today’s score on GHIN. Greens were OK, but Tee boxes and fairways were awful, really awful. Hard to believe that they’ve let this beautiful course go.

Very walkable

Loved the course layout, routing, pace of play, ability to walk, and friendliness of staff...all top-rated! My wife and I both very much enjoyed playing the course; we would gladly play it again. The greens are huge and were rolling fairly consistently. There was a lot of blotchy, dead grass on the fairways and around the greens; the tee boxes had issues but we could always find a small patch of grass for the tee. All in all, a good day on the links!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great Deal

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!
