Open year round, Watson Ranch, formerly known as Coos Country Club, has offered spectacular golf on the Southern Oregon Coast since 1923. Golfers will discover 18 unique and challenging holes in natural forested --and wetlands terrain. Nine new holes were added in 1998. As a semi-private course, play is open to those living 50 miles outside of the Coos Bay area year round.

The Club maintains two putting greens, a pitching green and a driving range that are open to the public. During the season, the Club hosts member tournaments, couples, and student events. In addition, there are tournaments and competitive events with other courses. Golfing activities are held for men, women and seniors.

The Course and Clubhouse are available for charity events, business outings and large or small tournaments.

    I don't normally write reviews, but when the exceptional case comes along, good or bay, it's worth sharing. Unfortunately it's for the latter. I've played countless courses as far as New England and Florida, and played along side pros and never once have I encountered such despicable management. Hassling, arguing, accusing -beyond rude, and all of this in the midst of women and children during a fundraising event when the entire course was pre-paid for for the day! And this wasn't just my experience; other people I had talked to had similar encounters. This is no Bandon Dune's (or anywhere close to it), and in such a small town word will spread when you treat people like that. I will never personally go back and I would never recommend anyone to go either. We left with another 9 holes still to play. If you're looking for a nice place, don't go here.
