Florence Golf Links
Stretching along the beautiful 6th fairway of Florence Golf Links (formerly Sandpines Golf Links), Fairway Estates offers quick access to the best golf on the Central Oregon Coast.
Florence Golf Links is simply breathtaking. Sculpted by nature and crafted into the unique setting of sand dunes, pine forest, and crystal blue lakes, this one-of-a-kind location provided a natural canvas for Rees Jones, the world-renowned golf course designer, to create 18 magnificent holes that will indulge your senses while improving your game. And because it was built over sand, the course is playable almost immediately after our occasional rains.
At times, you’ll feel as if you are playing the bluffs of Scotland, the Monterey Peninsula, or the woods of America’s mid-Atlantic. Florence Golf Links was voted “Best New Public Course in America” by Golf Digest shortly after opening in 1993 and has received other awards including a 4½-star rating from Golf Digest’s list of “Places to Play in the USA.”
