The summer of 2014 might very well go down in history as “The Summer of Golf” at Ocean Dunes Golf Links and Three Rivers Casino. Starting early in July with Ladies Nine and Wine Wednesdays, and going through the end of October with our Tee-mendous Stay & Play golf package, Florence, Oregon is the place to be for golfers this summer.
The beautiful fairways at Ocean Dunes Golf Links are memorable: 18-holes tucked picturesquely amidst sand dunes and native plants. Because it was designed with coastal weather in mind, it is better protected from the wind than a lot of coastal golf courses and is built on a natural sand base that gives it a well-drained, firm surface that is playable year round, rain or shine. If you haven’t had the opportunity to experience this unique course, then the summer of 2014 is definitely the time to remedy that. And for those of you who already know and love Ocean Dunes Golf Links, this is a perfect time to come back and enjoy it again.
July Golf Events
The summer kicks off with a ladies-only event and this one will continue through the season. Ladies, we hope you’ll join us at Ocean Dunes Golf Links each Wednesday from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for Ladies Nine and Wine Wednesdays. Your cost will include the green fee, a cart and beverage and, to get yourself in the right swing before you hit the links, you’ll begin with a power lesson! Members pay $10 and non-members $25. You need to register in advance, so call 541-997-3232 to sign up.
On July 26, Ocean Dunes Golf LInks will also be hosting the 2014 5th Annual Florence Rotary Club “Cool at the Coast” Summer Golf Spectacular Charity Fundraiser to End Polio Now. The Shotgun Start will be at 10:00 a.m., so plan to be there early. There will be teams of four, a scramble format and Gross & Net divisions, as well as tee prizes for long drives, accuracy drives and KP’s on all Par 3s. And just to top things off, the Hole-in-One Prize will be a 2014 Ford F-150 Pickup! The entry fee of $80 per player includes beverages on the course, a golf cart, and lunch. This special event is limited to the first 136 paid players, so you’ll need to act soon to get in on this fun golf event. Call Bob at 541-997-3232 for more details.
For more information on these July events, contact us; we’re happy to answer any questions.
August Golf Events
If you’re a golfer and a fan of Oregon beers, you won’t want to miss the 1st Annual Viking Cup and Beer Tasting on August 9. All the proceeds of this beer/golf event will go to help the Siuslaw Volleyball Club and Western Lane Baseball, so you can enjoy the 18 craft beers— one at each hole!— and know it’s for a good cause. The Kush Band will be there to entertain you, and for a $30 extra fee, you can have a steak dinner with all the fixings. A putting contest and check-in starts at 1:30 p.m., so that you’ll be ready for the 2:00 p.m. start. The per person cost will be $75. And, if your company is interested in participating, there are some limited, tax-deductible sponsorships available for this event. Free transportation will be available within Florence. Call Bob Rannow for more information at (541) 997-3232.
