Tillamook seeks resort

TILLAMOOK A golf course and resort project in the works for the Port of Tillamook Bay will bring jobs and tourism to the region, one of its developers says.

Plans for The Bunkers at Tillamook Bay include a tournament-quality golf course, 250-room resort hotel, 200 acres set aside for eco-tourism and eventually time-share units.

“We hope to rival the cheese factory for tourists per year,” says Richard Carr, one of three managing partners for The Bunkers, LLC.

Once completed, the course and resort are expected to generate between 300 and 400 jobs.

The group acquired the right to use the land for the development through a leasehold agreement with the Port of Tillamook Bay several years ago and is still waiting for approval of the conditional-use permit that would allow them to build the course and resort. That permit expires in February, according to port director Robert H. Van Borssum.

“We don’t have any reason to think they will not respond positively, but like any other permit, it isn’t there until it’s there,” Carr says.

If all goes well, major construction is set to begin once the ground dries out — probably in June, he says. Carr would not give an estimate of the development’s cost.

Rushforth Construction of Tacoma has been hired for the project, but Carr hopes sub-contracts will be awarded to local labor.

“We’re encouraging them to use as many Tillamook County contractors as they can,” he says. “If they can’t use Tillamook County, then western Oregon, and spreading out from there.”
