The 18 hole, championship Beau Pre Golf Club is surrounded by pine and spruce trees that line fairways. There are varied landscapes and terrain that provide ample challenge. Mountainous and meadow sections of the course require precision placement shots. Golfers seeking challenges absolutely love this aspect of the course design, though it can also provide frustration at times. Sand traps, ponds, and views of the Pacific Ocean from holes at upper elevations provide enough to see and do that your trip to McKinleyville will be well worth it if you are a golfer.
