This course is a reflection of the Scottish tradition. In Scotland, some golf links are built upon land reclaimed from the sea. The Pacific Ocean and Siletz Bay line the majority of the northwest corner of this course. Water hazards come into play on five holes. The rugged and natural beauty of the terrain combined with all the weather elements will provide even the best golfer with a challenging round. Locals say that this course has been created in harmony with nature. The trees and coastal vegetation surrounding the areas of play are left as natural as possible. As on Scottish-links courses, the tee boxes, landing areas and greens are well-maintained. The forest and brush on the sides of the fairways will make finding an errant ball almost impossible. Hitting straight shots is important when playing this course. Many of the greens are mounded, making shot placement all the more vital. Due to the pine tree formations, there are many dogleg fairways that require players to use caution or find themselves looking at possible double bogies. The well-bunkered greens also add to the difficulty. There are discounted rates available from June through October. "Golf Digest" ranked this course 73rd among the "Top 75 Resort Courses" for 1992, and 68th best out of "America's Top 75 Affordable Courses" from their list of "America's Best Golf Courses Everyone Can Play" for 1996. In addition, "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 10th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996, and the 14th "Best in State" course for 1997-98. In 1996, they completed the first phase of a renovation that includes an irrigation system, several fairways, sand bunkers, and entirely redesigned holes by architect Bill Robinson. Robert Muir Graves had previously redesigned the course in the 1980s. The men's tee also has a ladies' course rating of 77.0 and a slope rating of 134.
