|The game of golf was born on rugged, wind swept land
like the Oregon coast. Bandon Dunes is perched 100 feet
above the Pacific, representing links golf at its finest.
|Pacific Dunes (my favorite among Bandon’s four courses)
has several holes with stunning views. Golf Digest
ranks it as the #3 public golf course in the US,
just behind Pebble Beach and Whistling Straits.
|The gorst was in a spring bloom of waxy yellow
flowers, along with plenty of thorns.

|Wild turkeys at Bandon Trails had romance, not
golf, on their minds.

company, with our caddie and friend, Benny Moore.

|The Old MacDonald course has a famous bell, rung
after you finish the hole, so the group behind you
knows it’s OK to tee off to the blind green.
