Salishan offers complimentary golf clinics for kids

The entire Pacific Northwest feels tailor-made for kids, with all that fresh air and plenty of open spaces to roam. Within this great region, the Oregon Coast is a beloved destination, offering miles of sandy beaches and a range of escapes, including our top choice for families, the Salishan Spa & Golf Resort. For adults, the name of this place says it all. But when it comes to golf, children aren't excluded, as they often are at fairway-focused resorts. There are complimentary kids' golf clinics and putt-putt sessions each day, as well as a supervised activity center and nightly s'mores parties. As for ways to bond as a family, you can head out to the beach in search of glass floats, hike the local nature trails or pick up a complimentary kite at the front desk and see which way the wind blows. Kids Club menus and a great wine cellar means mealtimes are fun for everyone.
