The Oregon Tribe owned courses

Updated: July 30, 2022
Ocean Dunes Golf Links

• Ocean Dunes Golf Links

is located in Florence, Oregon, situated in a stretch of dunes that covers about 40 miles of Oregon coastline, making it one of the most unique golfing experiences in the Northwest.

A true links course with fairways that wander over, around, and through dunes bordered by gorse, heather, shore pins and sea grasses. Narrow fairways and smallish greens will challenge every golfer’s game.

If you are planning a trip down the Oregon Coast, this course should be on your must-play list. As with any true links, the course is extremely well drained and playable – even under the wettest conditions – year round. The mild coastal climate in Florence is not too hot in summer and not too cold in winter.

Ocean Dunes is owned by the Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians who also own the Three Rivers Casino Resort. The casino is located at the south end of the golf course and has 90 oversized deluxe rooms and suites to choose from. With 5 restaurants, daily entertainment and countless amenities, guests will want to check out their stay and play packages on their website.

Golfers can analyze their swing and improve their swings in the simulator room that uses the Trackman launch monitor to map a golfer’s swing.

The outdoor pavilion has been moved east of the clubhouse and provides a large shaded area for events and tournament meals. The Wildhorse Casino Resort has one of the biggest and best RV parks with all of the services you would expect in an up-scale facility.

The casino has a 10-story hotel where guests have free access to the fitness center and business center, or relax in the indoor pool, sauna and hot tub.
