Coast gets disc golf course

disc golf tee Coast gets disc golf courseThe scenery of the Oregon Coast and fun of disc golf officially have come together at the Wilder Disc Golf Course, which opened recently in the South Beach area of Newport.

The course is the first 18-hole challenge along Oregon’s coastline and takes full advantage of the area’s natural assets. All 18 holes play in deep woods with ravines and elevation changes.

Major brush and foliage is abundant and makes for an impressive wilderness experience. Hole 10 features an ocean view atop the coastal mountain-range hillside. The course is free to play, has 18 holes and totals 5,057 feet.

“Winding through a coastal forest, the course offers both uncommon challenge and gorgeous scenery,” said Bonnie Serkin, owner of Landwaves, Inc., the development company behind the course. “We’re dedicated to preserving the indigenous scenery, so the idea of a disc golf course that draws people into the woods seemed like a perfect fit.”

The course is just off Highway 101 south of Yaquina Bay, across the road from South Beach State Park. Follow signs for Wilder Twin Park.
