Golf Nomad Regional Course Rankings: Oregon (Coastal)

Not only does the Oregon Coast provide one of the country’s most scenic drives, it also produces an amazing collection of golf courses. Bandon Dunes has put this place on the map in the eyes of golfers, but there’s plenty of other great options in this region.

These rankings are based on my impressions of the overall design, scenery and relative value combined with more measurable elements such as conditioning, facilities and customer service (taking into account my personal experience(s) at the course and general word-of-mouth from reviews/ratings).

Keep in mind when clicking on any active review links below that often I review multiple courses in the same article, so sometimes you have to scroll down in the story to find the course listed here.
