The Gearhart Trail

May 23-25, 2021

Gearhart Golf Links — Astoria CC — Highlands GC — Manzanita GL

We’re taking 48 Members on a three-day expedition along Oregon’s Scottish-American coastline. A trail of golf courses encapsulating all that's good about the game awaits: There’s Gearhart, a true links star shaped by 130 years of seaside gusts; Astoria, a private gem up the street that’s kept the straight ball in style; and Highlands, the perfect nine-hole palate cleanser served best with a side bet.

This event is limited to 48 Members

In 1891, a group of golf-starved Scots stumbled upon an undeveloped strip of Oregon coastline. Much to their delight, the terrain resembled their beloved St. Andrews. With nary a golf course west of the Mississippi at the time, they decided to cut holes into the sides of dunes and, with the swing of a stick, forever planted their flag in the Pacific Northwest. Some 130 years later, Gearhart Golf Links continues to thrive. What's more, it’s inspired a series of stunning golf sites along the same strip of land.

Astoria Golf & Country Club

Golf can only be played in two directions at Astoria Golf & CC: north and south. You may hear the crash of the Pacific to the west—perhaps you’ll even catch a glimpse of it over the towering dunes that run parallel—but rest assured, you don’t need to be Lewis & Clarke to find your way around. It’s a local secret that packs breathtaking visuals and a full shot-makers menu into each loop. Best to enjoy this trip: Securing an invite from the private membership is tough.


Who doesn't love a change of pace? Gearhart happens to have a killer one right next door. The Highlands rivals any short course on the coast—yeah we said it, Preserve fans—and remains in pristine condition year-round despite its popularity. It’s ideal for an early morning tune-up or late-afternoon cool down. Just don't forget your skins money...

Getting There

A flight into Portland International Airport (PDX) followed by a 1 Hour 40 Minute car ride is the most efficient route into Gearhart. Flights into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) with a 3 ½ hour drive is the next closest metropolitan area airport. Those driving from the south will want to take I-5 North until Route 26 and head West towards Gearhart, while those traveling from the north will want to take I-5 South until Route 30 and head West towards Gearhart.

Can't Make It? Stay Ready

If this event is out of reach, don’t worry: We’ll be on the road all 2021, hitting places like Chambers Bay, Sand Valley and beyond. Continue to monitor our announcements and stay loose. You’ll want to be ready when the TGJ Van rolls into your town.
