Legendary Gearhart golf brings an entirely different element to your golf game; oceanfront winds. Trying to select the perfect club in your bag while gauging the wind distance near the oceanfront will bring a whole new dimension to the game. If you’ve never golfed near the ocean, it’s an excellent way to get a fresh perspective of the sport. We’ve selected three various golf courses near Gearhart by the Sea so that you’re able to test your golf game against coastal winds.
Gearhart Golf Links
Book your tee time at Gearhart Golf Links, our city’s stunning 1800’s Scottish-style course with two different nines offering short as well as long holes. The experienced player will not be disappointed with the deep pot bunkers along the way providing a challenge. Practicing links-style golf in the wind and on contoured greens can be tough yet exhilarating to those looking for a fun round of Gearhart golf! Seagulls and wild elk can be seen throughout the course near the fairways, which will bring out the old-school links feel. The greens are well maintained and offer gorgeous ocean views nearing the 18th hole. Be sure to stop by the Sand Trap bar after nine holes to break from the sun with a refreshing drink along the way!
Highlands Golf Club
When you’re on a time crunch or want to practice your short game, an executive course is a great stop while you’re on vacation. Highlands Golf Club offers a quick round of Gearhart golf at the perfect price point. The pro shop is well stocked and offers anything you may have forgotten back home. Best for an early bird tee time, Highlands Golf Club is a beautiful, short, nine-hole course and meant for all skill levels. With risk comes reward on this course as the narrow fairways will come off a little tricky, but not too difficult, and the ocean wind adding a whole new dimension to the sport! Highlands Golf Club has been referred to “everyone’s favorite nine” and is a favorite hidden gem to the locals!
Seaside Golf Course
Bring the family to Seaside Golf Course, a great public nine-hole course perfect for beginners with wide-open clean fairways and soft greens. Bring your teens over to the small putting green to practice before playing! The short course offers a links feel, so you’ll be sure to experience the rustic vibes of the course along the way. Known for their incredibly friendly staff, be sure to stop into the clubhouse after a round of golf to enjoy a delicious burger and a round or three of cold beer!
