Bay City is home to Tillamook County’s only public disc golf course

Bay City is home to one of a handful of public disc golf courses on the Oregon coast, thanks to the efforts of residents Mark and Dee Harguth, who also own and operate the Sheltered Nook bed and breakfast and Sheltered Nook Tiny Cabins in the small city at the southeast edge of Tillamook Bay.

In the spring of 2015, the Harguths broke ground on The Meadow, a nine-hole course, located within walking distance of the popular 200-acre Kilchis Point Reserve. The course features short, technical holes among trees as well as wide-open shots in the namesake meadow, which is landscaped with sword ferns, salal and other native plants. The owners plan to built a pro shop with discs for sale or rent and to have the course PDGA certified.

Bay City also offers art and cultural activities and exhibits at the nonprofit Bay City Arts Center and an outlet for Tillamook Country Smoker jerky products.

Local dining options include fresh seafood at The Fish Peddler, which is located on the bay, west of U.S. Highway 101, The Landing, which sells burgers and other diner food items at its restaurant and lounge, and Fresh, LLC, which offers smoothies, wheatgrass shots, espresso and a rotating menu of seasonal dishes.

Sheltered Nook on Tillamook Bay-Tiny Cabins and The Meadow are located at 7860 Warren Street. Keep up with construction and related news by following the Harguth’s Facebook page.

LeeAnn Neal’s great-great-great grandfather Elbridge Trask and great-great grandfather Warren Vaughn were among the Tillamook County pioneers who built the Morning Star ship and who are featured in the Don Berry cult historical fiction novels “Trask” and “To Build a Ship.” LeeAnn was a journalist on the north Oregon coast for nearly 20 years, as well as a freelance writer and blogger for a wide range of publications throughout the country. She was the owner and editor of the Tillamook County Pioneer, a popular online newspaper. Sadly, LeeAnn’s life ended too soon. She is missed greatly in this community, but she left us with wonderful stories.
