Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, located on the Pacific Ocean along the shoreline of the Southern Oregon Coast, is made up of five distinct courses.
The first course at the resort, opened in May of 1999. Bandon Dunes was designed by David McLay Kidd, and immediately gained high praise from golf pros around the country. It was one of Kidd’s earlier efforts in designing a golf course. Since its opening, the original course has been adjusted, including significant gorse removal and re-routing of the second hole. Bandon Dunes Golf Course is known to usually bring in the resort guest’s lowest scores, thanks to its forgiving landing areas off the tee.
Perhaps Golf Odyssey summed it up best: “it is here, on this remote stretch of the wildly stunning Oregon coast, where the finest golf courses in the whole world quietly await you.” In 2009, owner Mike Keiser decided to build a fifth lodging option with 39 rooms.With big screen television, big shower head, a bed and lots of space it is the perfect place for a golfer. Just south of Bandon Dunes 18th green, is The Inn. Cell phone and wireless reception was also improved in this same year.
Bandon Dunes is not an ideal spot for people who only golf once a year or even less. It is a place for golfers who golf every month and only use carts when they are told to. Bandon Dunes, though it is beautiful, it is hard to get to this facility and they are working on making it to make travel here more easy. Even with taking a plane, you will still have to drive for three hours and then drive through some very curvy roads.
