We called Watson Ranch after a Course in Northern California got smoked out. Will and his crew made sure we had a terrific day. This course is in decent shape. It also is challenging to play. Fairways are reasonably but can be considerably slopped and...More

If your visiting the Coos Bay Area this golf course is well worth playing. The new owners are doing a great job in restoring this picturesque venue. Plenty of challenging hazards, very nice greens (fast even in the morning) and beautiful countryside to admire. Under...More

Bring extra balls or hit it straight, many holes offer no mercy. Greens are perfect condition and put very true. Slop is under rated in my opinion. Wednesday is Men's club day and can busy until 2PM.

Interesting course to play. Up & down hills with lots of challenging holes. Fun playing or tagging along. Beautiful scenery & trying not to hit the deer.
