Golfing in Manzanita Oregon
Manzanita Golf Course, 908 Lakeview Dr, Manzanita, OR 97130 (503) 368-5744
Well, we have to confess. There’s only one golf course in Manzanita Oregon, the Manzanita Golf Course. We feel lucky to have this 2,192 yard, par 32, 9 hole course situated on a coastal hillside facing the sparkling Pacific Ocean on the Oregon coast.
As golfing isn’t our forte, we’ve found some reviews from experienced players:
A well maintained and challenging little course. Probably the nicest 9 hole track I have ever played. Pete C., worldgolf.com
This course is a gem…new greenskeeper has really improved the greens and fairways. Play it each time we come to the beach; more challenging than its length would indicate. The air is so dense at the beach that the ball just doesn’t fly like it does any where else. Plus, tight fairways demand an accurate tee shot. FUN! Henry B., oregongolf.com
No carts. 9-hole layout has change of elevation and great views, but is also challenging if you don’t hit the fairway as Heyerdahl guarded by trees. Course is short (par 33-66), but the tee shot on #5 is worth the experience. Scott N., tripadvisor.com
The course is lined with stately coastal pine and fir evergreens, lush fairways, and well-tended greens. Word on the street that hole number 5 is notable. Teeing off at 80′ above the long fairway, it offers a fantastic view of the hole. At a mere 280 yard from the back tees, you’ll find a great chance for an eagle.
The Manzanita Golf Course offers challenging play for all skill levels. You’ll also find owner and manager Steve Erickson and his helpful staff glad to provide some insider tips for playing a great game.
You’ll also find a snack shop with a limited menu and a pro shop with both apparel and equipment. The course is open year round with the driving range is open May through September. If you’re playing on weekends or the summer season, reservations are highly suggested. Be sure to call ahead and with plenty of notice.
Best of all, it’s a short distance from our beachfront Manzanita vacation rentals!

TripAdvisor offers the following review:
A 9 hole course very close to town. Friendly staff but they do double duty in the restaurant/ bar so you might have to track them down. No driving range. First tee has homes on one side but after that you are away from everything. Nice walk and there was a river/creek in places. Thick grass on edge of fairways. Weekday am and we were alone and thoroughly enjoyed our game. Would come back if we were in the area. I’m guessing it could be slow paced on a busy summer or weekend day. nrretreat, tripadvisor.com

You’ll enjoy the rich history of this charmingly restored inn and golf course:
In 1891, before any formal golf course existed west of the Mississippi River, a clatch of homesick Scotsmen confounded the locals by burying tin cans into the dunes and then knocking balls with sticks until they dropped into the cans. For these Scots, the landscape at Gearhart was strongly reminiscent of the native, ancient courses of St. Andrews and Montrose. gearhartgolflinks.com
