Final Pacific Gales Golf Info Meeting Jan. 22

More than 50 Oregonians joined Pacific Gales Troy Russell on Jan. 11 for an informational meeting about the golf course project planned for the Knapp Ranch area outside Port Orford, Oregon, about 30 minutes south of Bandon. The next informational meeting is set for Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m. at the American Legion Hall on 11th Street in Port Orford. The Pacific Gales conditional use application goes before the Curry County Planning Commission this month, but there is still time for Pacific Gales proponents to contact the county by letter or phone to voice support. Russell said the first informational meeting went well, allowing the Pacific Gales team to put many rumors to rest about the golf project, which since its announcement in late 2013 has generated interest not only locally but from golf media across the country, including Golf Digest, Golfweek, Links and GolfGetaways magazines as well as websites such as Cybergolf.
