The course is very scenic. Starting a Newport Performing Arts Center, it runs into historic Nye Beach then along the ocean past the Old Lighthouse by Yaquina Bay Bridge and back along the ocean to finish at Newport Performing Arts Center . The surface is all asphalt. It’s a loop course, but there are a couple small hills, about one block long
