Salishan Resort in Gleneden Beach, OR is home to an elite golf resort on the Oregon Coastal golf scene. The Golf Links at Salishan Resort, located just 10 miles south of Lincoln City, runs through the heart of the Resort, and provides ample challenge to even the best of players. With 180 degree views of both the Siletz Bay and the Pacific Ocean you can get caught up in the moment, establishing Salishan as a premier golf destination in the Northwest. A restoration of the golf course and lodge in 2004 has created a stunning golf course while providing a beautiful setting for a peaceful getaway. Whether you are staying at the Resort, or just visiting the Central Oregon coast, Salishan is a must stop for any golf aficionado.
Salishan Golf Links is split in the middle by Highway 101, with the front nine due east of the highway, and the back nine on the westside bordered by Siletz Bay. The two halves result in a split personality. The inland front nine plays very tight, and requires precision on every shot. The fairways roll throughout the opening Par 36 stretch surrounded by rich Northwest forested, rarely leaving you on level ground for your approach. The Par 35 back nine holes however are unmistakably coastal golf. Opening up considerably from the front, the back provides stellar views of the ocean below. Hazards differ on each side of the course as well. On the front nine, the trouble appears in the form of thick forest lined fairways with water coming into play. Move to the back nine and you are avoiding sand dunes and tall grass, all while negotiating the coastal winds. Being at the beach the sand plays a strong role, providing risk reward opportunities throughout the round. Once you have successfully navigated yourself onto the greens at Salishan the ball rolls fast and true with both subtle and severe breaks.
