Eighty miles from downtown Portland via Highway 26, Gearhart has been a popular spot for Northwest residents since the late 1800s. Today, with the new clubhouse, including the Gearhart Hotel, and recently restored golf course, Gearhart Golf Links continues to provide an excellent setting for vacations, weekend getaways, family get-togethers, business retreats, or any other excuse one can dream up to escape to the beach.

From EAST – Take HWY 26 to the junction at HWY 101. Head North on HWY 101 through Seaside, to the 1 and only stoplight in Gearhart. Turn Left at the light onto Pacific Way, heading west towards the Ocean. Go through downtown Gearhart, crossing Cottage Avenue. Turn right on Marion Avenue. Marion will lead you to our Clubhouse on the right hand side. There is parking on both the North and South sides of the Club House, with the North Lot being closer to the Pro Shop.

From WEST – You’ll need a bigger boat.


Just steps from the first tee – like in the “Golden Age” of golf – is where you’ll find the Pro Shop at Gearhart Golf Links.

“Once your car is parked, you are just steps from the putting and chipping green, Pro Shop, and first tee.”— Jason Bangild, PGA

Our General Manager and Director of Golf Jason Bangild, PGA, could add another unofficial title to his moniker: Keeper of the Flame, or maybe Curator, as he enjoys the nostalgic approach taken with the personal service offered here at Gearhart Golf Links.

Your day at Gearhart Golf Links begins in a relaxed, traditional way. Between the Pro Shop, The Pot Bunker Bar and the first tee, all of your pre golf needs are within a matter of a few steps.

The Pro Shop is fully stocked with both hard and soft goods. You’ll find our prices very competitive, with specials posted periodically throughout the season. The convenience of gift cards, e-mail/phone ordering and special orders are all welcomed and encouraged.

The Pot Bunker Bar is right next door, where you can enjoy a handcrafted Ale by the fire while you wait for a member of our Golf Staff to call your foursome to the tee.

Jason Bangild

General Manager/ Director of Golf



Jason grew up just north of Toronto, Canada, in the small town of Palgrave.  A golf scholarship to the University of Charleston propelled his golf career, which is now in its 27th year. While at UC Jason was nominated to the Dean’s List, honored as an Academic All American, and finished as Medalist in the WVIAC South Regional Championship. In ’97 he graduated with a degree in Business Administration. He was first a member of the Canadian PGA before joining the PGA of America in 2002. While honeymooning on Maui with his wife Melissa in 2000, they decided to stay, which they did for almost 12 years. A desire to return to the mainland and be closer to family brought Melissa, Jason and young son Tyler to Gearhart. Jason has experience at Public, Resort, and Private golf clubs. He began his career with 9 years at Devil’s Pulpit Golf Association in Caledon, Ontario, and has since worked at Kapalua Plantation Course, The Club at Hokulia, and most recently as Director of Golf at the exclusive Nanea Golf Club in Kona, Hawaii. During his 8 years at Nanea, Jason was awarded Merchandiser of the Year honors twice for the Aloha Section. Jason was recently awarded the Inaugural award for Club Executive of the Year for the Oregon Golf Association, and Merchandiser of the Year for the Oregon Chapter in 2016 and 2019. He also served on the OGAGC and OGAP Board of Directors.

Forrest has been dabbling in the Agronomic Consulting business, and is now ”Thrilled and elated to be back at Gearhart Golf Links as the Superintendent with Jason and the rest of the staff.” We are happy to have him!

They are known for being incredibly friendly with Members and Guests alike, and are always willing to help in any way they can!
When not making the golf course perfect for you to play, Forrest enjoys hunting, playing golf, and horse packing and riding into wilderness.
