Ocean Shores: A tourist treat and terrific golf

Updated: August 31, 2011

Ocean Shores for years has been a must-stop for tourists traveling to the coast. Some of the best lodging and accommodations on Washington’s Coast can be found in this resort town.

There is unique shopping and recreational attractions – like go-karts, mopeds, horseback riding and the opportunity to drive your car on the beach.

The golf course is user friendly and remains one of the strong attractions for the peninsula town. Over the years a new clubhouse and driving range were added. The front and back nine are quite different, one is a links-style without trees and plays along and often over the canal while the other plays through trees.

A new irrigation system for nine holes has allowed operator Curt Zander to see his course become more green and lush. Other changes coming up include some work to tees and greens. The course hosted the PNGA Junior Girls Championship in 2007.
