Bandon is golf as it was meant to be originally – like the original Scottish course. No power carts, no asphalt, no drink carts. Paths are cobblestone or railroad ties. It’s really ZEN golf. Benny Moore was our ace caddy – what a great help he was with trick shots, reading greens and mediating bets!
Summer Solstice = maximum daylight to play golf! Over 2 1/2 days, we played 90 holes of golf and walked 30 miles. (Hey if you play twice in one day, you get a discount!) Bandon Dunes has 3 courses, all of which are in the top 15 courses in the US. The #1 course in the US is Pacific Dunes (my favorite). It’s on the bluffs overlooking the ocean, where the salt breezes can provide many credible excuses for why your ball didn’t go where you thought it should go.
