“Gearhart Golf Links has always been a special place to the Jacobsen family. As kids we would come the Beach every summer and play match after match on the links, betting for milkshakes. The improvements the Boyle family have implemented are spectacular. Their vision to “Polish the Gem” is spot on, and everyone who plays there will love the newly restored Links feel, from the open vistas to the firm and fast playing surfaces.”
Peter Jacobsen – 7 time winner on the PGA Tour, NBC and Golf Channel Analyst
“Gearhart is one of those places that, because of vacations, I end up playing repeatedly. The improvements you and your staff have made to the course over the last couple of years have been amazing. The greens on Monday were fantastic and the new tee boxes made for some really interesting shots. I just wanted to let you know. Such a great place to play golf!”
Kris Fay – Owner “North West Golf Adventures” and Golf Writer
“I couldn’t have had a better time at Gearhart Golf Links, and I can’t thank the Club enough for the hospitality; a really fun 18 holes, the great food, a comfy night’s stay at the hotel, and especially the conversations with the staff and the members, which were exceptional. Speaking as a golf writer, I think the renewal and upgrading of the course is right on the money. It’s everything a resort course should be — fun, challenging (and yet playable by golfers of all skill levels), walkable, intimate, and so closely “linked” to the hotel that you feel like you’re playing on its lawn. (Hooray for that 19th-century feel.) Speaking as a lifetime Carne Golf Links member, I think the twinning of the clubs is inspired. I’m confident that the two memberships will hit it off and find ways to span the great distance and share each others’ courses and company.”
John Garrity -Sports Illustrated Senior Writer
“The Pacific Northwest boast many first class golf resorts. With their recent renovations, Gearhart Golf Links easily belongs on that list. From the middle and forward tees, you might just have the best round of your life. From all the way back at the Stones, you will find some of the harder pars in Golf. Whichever tees you choose, you will undoubtedly have ton of fun.”
David Jacobsen – Decorated Amateur Golfer and Member of the R&A
“I’ve played Gearhart year round for the past 13 years and its never been better. The fairways are firm and consistent even in mid winter and the greens are the best on the coast. It’s tough but fair and the changing weather means its never boring. The events are fun and competitive. Everybody has a chance to place and we get a good turnout. The events are spaced out nicely so that you can always be looking forward to the next event.”
Dave Butler – Men’s Club President
“These are the things that I like best about being a member of Gearhart Golf Links:
1. Making me feel like I am special by the management, greens crew, and cart shed personal.
2. Being able to play most anytime that we want.
3. Affordability of fees – golf, locker, cart storage.
4. Course condition – it’s great to be a member of one of the best golf courses in the Northwest.”
Peggy Cole – Ladies’ Club President
“Gearhart Golf Links has everything an adventurous golfer would want: the wind can pick up, the rough can be thick, the greens small and fast, and the bunkers and other hazards always within range. In other words, this course is not easy. But what it lacks in mediocrity, it makes up for with simple beauty, history, and is worth every moment one spends on it either contemplating the next shot, trying to forget the last one, or simply daydreaming along the fairways with friends. Gearhart Golf Links is the place to golf along the North Oregon Coast.”
Don Frank – Men’s Club Vice President
“Thanks again for hosting the best tourney in the Pac West (Gross Better Ball). I’m very excited to see the participation level up and the younger breed coming in to support this event. Great to see you and all the crew and look forward to the next time.”
