Pacific Gales Golf Course is a proposed 18 hole, links style golf course which will be on the Oregon coast approximately 2 miles north of Port Orford. The subject property is approximately 344 acres of which a portion is within the Coastal Shoreland Boundary south of Elk River.

As part of Curry County’s permitting process, Cascadia Geoservices was hired to conduct a site specific geologic hazard assessment of the subject property. This included, in part, compiling a reconnaissance map of the property and a review of historical aerial photographs. In addition, Cascadia Geoservices evaluated changes in natural storm water runoff patterns that could result from development activity.

Cascadia Geoservices is a locally owned and operated Pacific Northwest-based geological, geotechnical and geoenvironmental consulting firm with regional offices in Oregon and Washington. They have provided consulting services to Oregon and Washington clients since 1983.
