Improvements at the Brookings, Ore., property include a major renovation of the clubhouse, installation of a new event tent, and new golf carts, plus updates to the golf course, including removal of some trees, cart path improvements, and upgraded sand traps.
An infusion of over $200,000 by the city of Brookings, Ore., and a new operations manager has brought a renewed spirit to Salmon Run Golf Course.
Operating under new management since June of this year, Salmon Run is an 18-hole, par-71 course, operated by Early Management Team (EMT).
Improvements at Salmon Run have included a major renovation of the clubhouse, installation of a new event tent and road repairs/resurfacing. The city and the new management company have purchased all new golf carts. Course improvements have included removal of some obstacle trees, cart path improvements, new carts, improved sand traps and an over-all sprucing up of the grounds.
With four sets of tees that stretch from 5,433 yards to over 6,400 yards, Salmon Run offers a course for every skill level. Food service is now provided daily at the clubhouse by Jack Creek Cafe, offering a variety of breakfast and lunch selections. A dinner buffet is offered each Thursday night, and catering is available for events held at the golf course.
The new event pavilion has a dining seating capacity of 150 with room to expand and is available for tournament support events or non-golf related events such as wedding receptions.
“We are managing the course in a very eco-friendly manner,” said Val Early of EMT. “That means giving a high level of attention to preserving the ecosystem of Jack Creek and the surrounding forest.
“The course needed some major refreshing,” Early said. “We have improved playability and the quality of facilities. We are seeing a lot of golfers return.”
