Halfway between Brookings and Bandon, Cedar Bend Golf Course is located just inland from the coast (generally affording a bit dryer and clearer conditions) in a scenic wooded valley. It is a 9-hole public course built around and on top of Cedar Fork Creek. Cedar Bend Golf Course is generally flat and open with water being the main issue on most holes. The course is a bit rough around the edges, but generally well cared for with great people and worth the price. A dual tee box and two-pin system make a different play on the same holes the second time around. Flat and easily walkable..
Opened in 1971. Remodeled in 1981 by Ed Giovanetti.
Why It Is There
Back in 1971, there were no courses on the Southern Oregon Coast. So a local group got together, sold memberships, and got an FHA loan to finance the purchase of timber property and construct the course.
Note where the water is on each hole (and there is water on each hole). For example, on 6, a par 3, there is a creek in front of the green you cannot see from the back tee box.
Did You Know
All grass care (mowing, mulching, plugging, seeding) is done by volunteers. It is purported to be the only course on the Oregon Coast with an RV Park.
Good For Them
An OGA Youth on Course participant and have low (maybe no) greens fees for juniors. The course is the home course for Gold Beach High School (when it has a team). The course hosts fundraisers for the Gold Beach High School Baseball Team and for Wild River Animal Rescue.
Flat, fun, and family friendly, with a community feel all in an attractive place at a good price (great price if you park the RV there).
