ABOUT GEARHART

Legend has it that Gearhart Golf Links began life in about 1888, starting out as three holes of true links-style golf amongst the seaside meadows that characterize the North Oregon coast — making Gearhart the oldest course in the northwest and arguably in the Western United States.

From its original three holes, Gearhart Golf Links has stayed true to its Scottish roots and offers a pleasurable round (now 18 holes) for all golfers.  To this day, the course retains that classic links-style flavor, with a hint of traditional Northwest design features. It plays 6,429 yards from “The Stones” and 5,157 yards from the forward tees.

Golf itself boasts a long and mythical residency in Gearhart, appearing almost from the moment nails were being pounded into boards to build Gearhart’s first homes.

In 1891, before any formal golf course existed west of the Mississippi River, a clatch of homesick Scotsmen confounded the locals by burying tin cans into the dunes and then knocking balls with sticks until they dropped into the cans. For these Scots, the landscape at Gearhart was strongly reminiscent of the native, ancient courses of St. Andrews and Montrose.

LODGING: PLEASE NOTE

Lodging for the Gearhart Hickory Classic is available from Gearhart by the Sea Resort.  Gearhart Links has 13 buildings of condos of one or two bedrooms, fully-equipped kitchens, living room with fireplace, dining rooms and most have balconies for an outside space. Most are either on the golf course or very nearby. There are swimming pools available to guests and are approximately 300 yards from the ocean!

Tami Gandy, the resort lodging manager for Gearhart by the Sea, can be reached at groups@gearhartresort.com or 503-738-8331 ext. 501.

Besides Gearhart by the Sea Resort, there are a few Bed and Breakfast places in Gearhart and a full range of hotels at Seaside, Oregon, 3 miles to the south and at Astoria, Oregon, 14 miles to the north. Any of these places can be found by searching online.

Organizer

Northwest Hickory Players

After a successful three day event in the Portland area in July of 2013, the group was officially organized as the Northwest Hickory Players on January 1, 2014 following a round at ChambersBay. The goal of this group is to preserve and promote hickory golf in the traditions of bygone days when golfers, wearing knickers and other period clothing, played with brassies, spoons mashies and niblicks.

We’re all about hickory golf.  That’s it.  No modern events, no hybrid events, just pre-1935 hickory play for the love of the game.  We invite players from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia to join us by contacting one of us below.  Loaner/rental sets available too!  We have plenty.  Come, join us!
