How to Play a Round at the Manzanita Golf Course

The Manzanita Golf Course is one of the best places to tee off on the Oregon Coast. It sits on a beautiful hillside facing the pounding surf, and since it’s just a short walk from several of our Starfish Luxury Rentals, playing a round here is a must on your next Oregon Coast getaway! This scenic 2,192-yard course was designed by Ted Erickson in 1987 and features a par-32, 9-hole layout, pro shop, driving range, and much more. Here are just some of the things you’ll see at Manzanita Golf Course.

Spend an Afternoon at Manzanita Golf Course

Matching the spectacular scenic beauty of the Oregon Coast, Manzanita Golf Course is surrounded by majestic fir trees and features manicured fairways and greens. One of the most breathtaking views is on hole #5, where golfers can tee off 80 feet above the fairway. The rest of the course is challenging for golfers of every skill level, but if you need some practice, sign up for a lesson Steve Erickson, who happens to be the owner and manager, or a member of his friendly staff. They’ll be happy to offer tips and tricks for playing your best.

Before your round, be sure to stop by the pro shop and peruse the latest in golf equipment and apparel, or visit the snack bar and stock up on your favorite foods and beverages. Manzanita Golf Course is open all year. Visit their driving range between May and September. Reservations are suggested.
