Westport Golf Links/Westport Light State Park Project

Summary of the project

 Westport Golf Links / Westport Light State Park

Description of the Proposal:

 In 2019, Westport Golf Links (WGL) approached State Parks with a proposal to construct, operate and manage a Scottish links golf course within the park boundary under a long-term concession agreement to operate and maintain the golf course and associated facilities. WGL retained David McLay Kidd of DMK Golf Designs (the golf course architect for Bandon Dunes in Oregon) to develop a golf course layout responsive to existing environmental conditions identified by the baseline studies.

Associated golf course facilities are proposed on property outside the park boundary, to include a club house with restaurant, parking lot, approximately 60 rooms for guest accommodations, a pro shop, and maintenance facility. An adjacent City-owned parcel is being considered for these uses. The proposal includes retaining natural vegetation along project boundaries to maintain a natural (in most cases forested) buffer between golf operations and neighboring lots.

Draft alternative site plans for a links golf course on the WLSP site include conceptual planning under either action alternative (shown in pictures on the right of this page) for new infrastructure; improved public access; interpretive panels; environmental preservation and restoration efforts; and a diversity of regional recreational opportunities for health and fitness, community connection, connection with nature, and environmental stewardship within the park. 

Location of the Proposal:

The WLSP site is located at the northern end of a peninsula (see map at right), bounded on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by Half Moon Bay and Grays Harbor, and on the east by the City of Westport in Grays Harbor County, WA.
