Bandon Dunes Resort boasts two 18-hole golf courses: Bandon Dunes and Pacific Dunes.Bandon Dunes, a walking-only course, is a Scottish-links design that was built along the ocean bluffs on an undisturbed section of coastline about 100 miles from the California border. Wind is generally a major factor in club selection on this coastal course. Those who play the course remark that because of the often foggy weather conditions, the course is very reminiscent of those found in Scotland and Ireland. The greens are very large, ranging from thirty to sixty yards in width. The signature hole is #16, a 345-yard, par 4, which has split fairways that are separated by a gorge. "Golf Magazine" selected this course 44th on its 1999 list of the "Top 100 Courses in the U.S." "GOLFWEEK" selected it 10th among "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1999. Future plans include construction of a third eighteen hole course. The 6,112-yard men's tee also has a ladies' course rating of 77.7 and a slope of 145.Pacific Dunes, the latest addition to Bandon Dunes Resort, will open for play on July 1, 2001. Designed by Tom Doak, Pacific Dunes was constructed on a stretch of Pacific Ocean coastline just north of Bandon Dunes. It is a par 71 course, measuring approximately 6,700 yards form the tips, with undulating fairways, and small, thoughtfully constructed greens. This course also boasts two of the largest bunker complexes in America, which rest alongside the par-4 second hole. As with the Bandon Dunes Course, wind is a major factor in club selection, and Pacific Dunes is also walking-only.

|I played both Bandon and Pacific Dunes on consecutive days this Spring.No course has ever stayed with me as both of these gems have managed to do.My only worry was that all golf experiences would fall short of the high standard that was set in Oregon. No worries - I still have fun on a golf course! My only message is to encourage anyone reading this to try and make the pilgimmage to Bandon. You won't regret it.|
