  • Wilder DGC, Newport, OR

    Just a heads up:

    The Ford foundation has granted the money to put in an 18 hole course in South Beach, near the Oregon Coast Community College. The land use still has to be a approved by the City of Newport, but there is a real effort here to put a course in. Lots of Doug Firs and elevation changes.

    There's also talk of putting two other courses, one in Toledo and another in Depoe Bay.

    Will let you know more details as they become available.
    It's not whether you've won or lost, it's how many beers you were driven to drink after you're done.

        Awesome! We have camped a lot at South Beach, and always thought it would be the perfect place for a disc golf course. Where exactly will the course located in relation to the State campground?

          It's pretty much right next to it. I tried to link the google maps but the directions are wrong (the area where the Community College is is much more developed now). If you are leaving SBSP: take a left on 101, drive 3/4 of a mile, then take a right and follow signs for the Oregon Coast Comm. College.

          This is most definitely a 'course in development' right now. Hurdles to climb/hoops to jump through.

                      Wasn't it the Ford Institute Leadership Program that put the course in Astoria? The description of the program sounds very familiar: sort of like an Eagle Scout project for a team of adults.

                        You would be correct Adam! They don't actually (as I understand it) put up the money but show you HOW to get/raise the money and plan/impliment it.
