Oldest course in Oregon, a tall ship, a whaler. Rough on the edges, well worn decks and puny greens. Straight forward and short, no match for my titanium weapons, my three peice urathane covered spheres, childs play until the end of the day and it has beaten me again. How could this cow pasture of a thing do this? Like Ahab it bekons. Be ye golfin men or no This is an old style course which is mostly target golf. Not too hard nor too easy. Flat course. Good for all levels of play. The course's weakness is that it has no diversity. Many par 4's are narrow, tree-lined, with heavy rough and narrow fairway, 345 yds. A bit boring. Its strength are the conditions of its greens. Very true and well taken care of, and roll the same from green to green (stimp). Played in May '07 when the rough was so thick it was easy to lose balls. Fairways and teeboxes in decent, though thin, shape. $50 to walk: a bit pricey. Very easy to walk, no houses. A lot of history with the course, it started as a three hole course in 1888 for the guests of the Hotel Gearhart next door. Then a total of nine holes were designed byMarshall in 1915, followed by another nine by Chandler Egan in 1935, and remains as it is today. It's relatively short at 6,216 yards, but unforgiving at 71.6/137 ratings, a must play step back in time.
