Warm and friendly people, cozy and unique clubhouse, fun and historic golf course, all at affordable rates.
The North Oregon Coast is as beautiful as it is rugged, and the experience at Gearhart Golf Links is one cherished by locals and visitors alike. With the mountains to the East and South, and the Pacific Ocean to the West, a day in Gearhart can be one of the best of your life. The quality of the Links have improved significantly over the last few years, but we have been able to keep the cost to play below what it might be at other top resorts. Our golf rates are Seasonal and range from $65 to $125.

Caddying is far more than a summer job, it is an important tradition of the game of golf. The core values that underscore a caddie’s presence on the golf course are the same ones that can help them to be successful later in life. In 2022, Gearhart Golf Links teamed up with the Western Golf Association and the Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship program. Currently, there are 1,100 caddies enrolled at 22 leading universities on an Evans Scholarship. The scholarship covers full tuition and housing costs for up to four years of college and is an estimated value of $125,000. GGL has 8 or 9 kids enrolled in the caddie program, each trying to earn one of those scholarships. Through the generosity of the course owner, and the GGL Men’s club, you can hire a caddie for your round for a very reasonable rate. A fund was started by the owner and the men’s club to underwrite half of the caddie fee. As a player, you would pay the other half and a gratuity to match the caddie’s efforts. Specifically, $25 is paid to the caddie by the Club, $25 by you the player, plus a tip. To request a caddie, simply download the Caddie Now App (Click here) and follow the directions, or e-mail or call the Pro Shop! Every effort will be made to fulfill your request.

“Take Dead Aim.” Harvey Penick
PGA Professional Jason Bangild and PGA Apprentices Casey Poore and Mark Davis are students of the game, in both it’s history and it’s advancement. Nothing makes golf more fun than figuring out how to make your swing move the golf ball just a little straighter or a little further. All 3 Professionals are available for individual or group lessons, focusing on any and all aspects of the game, from putting and chipping, to pitching and bunker play, to the full swing with irons and woods.
Gearhart Golf Links is built on 100 acres, with almost every inch taken up by its 18 glorious golf holes. There was space left over to build a wonderful putting green near the pro shop, and a massive putting course called “The Clam Bed” between #1 and #9.
We are very fortunate to have a fantastic indoor learning facility complete with golf specific fitness equipment, and a state of the art GC Quad launch monitor and virtual golf system from Foresight Golf!
Lessons with a PGA Apprentice are $50 for 30 minutes of on-course instruction. ($60 with a PGA Member)
Indoor Lessons with a PGA Apprentice using the video or launch monitor equipment are $80 for 45-60 minutes of instruction. ($90 with a PGA Member)
Special rates for playing and group lessons may be arranged with each Professional.
