Salmon Run Golf Course
Salmon Run Golf Course is a golf retreat unlike any other in the Pacific Northwest. Located in beautiful Brookings Harbor and set in a maturely wooded area, this course is accented by panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Golf Digest ranked this course as one of the most beautiful and challenging courses in Oregon. Salmon Run’s name originates from the Chetco River, which runs alongside this course and is one of the largest salmon spawning rivers in the country. During spawning season, hundreds of fish can routinely be seen making their way upstream. Fearless golfers only need apply.
The Feel of the Course
If you are fearless the fun begins right away. They start you off with the Salmon Spawn Hole, a par four that requires a well positioned tee shot. Don’t go too far off the tee as the fairway narrows dramatically. The signature hole is the Lombard Street Hole or fourth hole and has an island green that may be one of the prettiest holes in golf. The bridge crossing from the seventh green to the eighth tee provides one of many opportunities to view the spawning salmon during the fall, winter and spring months.
There is lots and LOTS of water and many beautiful creeks. Playing Salmon Run is like island hopping, and many of the holes have some very impressive elevation changes. Your tee is sometimes located on a cliff with a grand view of the fairway and the wilderness area below. Narrow fairways abound with trees. This is an absolutely beautiful, very challenging golf course.
The Feel of the Area
Salmon Run is located behind the coastal mountains, and only 3.5 miles from downtown Brookings. With four sets of tees that stretch from 5,433 yards to over 6,400 yards, Salmon Run offers a course for every skill level in a setting that you will never forget.
