Designed by Rees Jones and Greg Muirhead, this award winning design provides wooded holes, evoking comparisons to Pinhurst, links holes reminiscent of the Monterey peninsula, to "the crescendo" (#16,17,18) played around the great central lake.

"Sandpines is, by the very nature of the land, reminiscent of Scottish links-style courses. It brings golf back to its very roots and origins. To see Sandpines for the first time is breath taking. Sandpines should stand the test of time as the great original links have." -- Rees Jones

Florence Golf Links: 18th green in the foreground, 16th green in the backgroundThe putting green is large, flat and well manicured. It also provides a beautiful view of the course.Tavolo Restaurant and Lounge at Florence Golf Links is serving lunch and dinnerView of the Florence Golf Links clubhouseFlorence Golf Links hole #16. Your tee shot must be left center to avoid the Scottish style bunkers on the right. The green is surrounded by hazards. Water, deep bunkers, and rough are waiting. The massive coastal sand dunes can be seen in the distance. Florence Golf Links #14: Your tee shot must avoid the fairway bunker on the right. Don't pull your second shot into the large bunker with the dune grass protecting the left front side of the green. Florence Golf Links #10: A straight tee shot is a must on this long par 4. Mounds on the left will leave an awkward lie. Anything right will be lost in the trees or the sand dunes. The green is a flat putting surface. Florence Golf Links #9: A long par 4 protected left and right by pine trees. The green is guarded by bunkers to the left, right and rear. Florence Golf Links #8: Beautiful downhill par 3 with Reese Jones undulation in the center of the green. Club selection is critical. Green slopes right to left.Florence Golf Links #4: A straight tee shot is key to avoid trees to the right. Big hitters can find the hidden bunkers on the right. A tough approach shot to a green that is guarded by the lake to the right and a bunker left.

    With new ownership, the course is being maintained in excellent condition. The mild Spring weather made playing this course very enjoyable as did the pleasant employees.

    Lovely course, well kept and maintained, nice people and good service, fairways and greens excellent. The course has plenty of fairway space, plays long and in the wind even longer, particularly mid to late day in the summer. Price was excellent for the quality of the course. It is worthy of a destination golf vacation.

    Well-designed holes that include forest and open link features. The placement of the 5 different tees allows you to play a fun, forgiving course to a long, extremely difficult one.
    Every hole is postcard-picturesque. Great food at the 19th hole (Tavolo).

    This is a GREAT golf course. Designed by one of the foremost golf architects in the US. Come over from central Oregon every year for the last 4 years and play it 4 times a year. Huge challenge when the wind is blowing. Can blow a steady 35 mph and gust to 40. A 380 yd par 4 can be a 500 yd par 4 into the wind. Believe me, I'm NOT kidding. I played last year 2 days where it was 70 degrees and a 5 mph wind. I shot 75/72. Best 2 rounds of my life back to back. Some of the most fun you'll ever have. When it's windy, pretend you're in Scotland. Easy to do as it's a links style course. We buy the 4 pack and get it at $49/round plus cart. We're going back this year of course. Just check the weather reports ahead if you're the timid type. Nice sandwiches, etc in the bar. We always have a lunch there.

    Have been coming to Sandpines for 5 years with a group of 20 -24. Weather conditions were bad enough to declare the course unplayable this trip. Staff basically said course is playable and if you don't play no rainchecks issued. Force to quit after 9 holes on Sunday, no rain checks and forgot to arrange a Sat. dinner for our group. The tee prize round of golf had cart removed this year for the 1st time without sharing that information. Group coordinator not there. Overall customer service for the event was poor. 1 person on staff to serve entire bar and lunch, great attitude but totally understaffed.

    Have played Sandpines every summer for the last 3 years on our annual golf trip to Oregon with my son and we love it. We play Bandon, Pumpkin Ridge, The Reserve Vineyard, Salishan and Sandpines. They are all great and all things considered Sandpines might be our favorite.
