Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

Best thing for spasms is a theracane. Foam roller is a good supplement, though. Lacrosse balls are great as well to roll on.

I struggle with them too, they suck.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

here's a quick update. i was hoping to live blog this trip but apparently Lord Apple has nuked my iphone battery in to planned obsolescence oblivion. i haven't been able to turn on my phone for the past several days, even when directly plugged in to a power source.

happy to report back spasms weren't remotely an issue at any time during the trip.

since my phone was nuked, i hope to follow up in a few days from now with pictures taken by others in my group, specifically a first time participant who happens to be a professional photographer. he is a good friend of someone who flies out from the deep south every year to join us. let's just say the newbie hired a caddie every round to carry his clubs so he could carry his camera and take pictures. he has lots of pics and he's promised to share. i've seen a few proofs and they are phenomenal.

we left Portland early Wednesday morning with a 1:45 slot at the Preserve. we arrive after the 4.5 hour drive, check in early to our rooms at Chrome Lake, and i quickly put on shorts and long sleeves since the sun is out and temps are in the low 60s with not much wind. we play the 13 par 3 holes with six in the group.

here are the games:
randomly draw names out of a hat and predict their score on the course, closest to the score wins. wager? $10 each. 1st gets $40, 2nd gets $20
predict your own score on the course, closest to the score wins. wager? $10 each. 1st gets $40, 2nd gets $20
play skins on each hole at $1 per hole each ($13 total).
each player will pay $5 if someone happens to get an ace as a type of hole in one insurance.

results? the 'predict someone else's score' bet was one stroke off, the 'predict your own score bet' was right on the nose (i missed by a stroke), and we all payed the hole in one insurance because we witnessed someone use the backstop on hole 8 to leave his shot pinned between the flag and the edge of the hole....pull the pin out and the ball fell in. that's the second ace i've seen on that hole in three years, and let's just say his bar bill was north of $400 after 20 of us made our orders (we had a few more groups behind us on the course, as well as some leaving Trails at the same time).

more to follow.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

heading down today from portland. staying four nights.

does it matter which exit i take from I5 to the coast? planning to turn west just south of Eugene for Reedsport, then south to Bandon.

swing has been an absolute mess this summer. cap up four strokes. setting a very low bar for the trip. try not to injure myself. find as many balls as i lose. stay positive. take pictures.

you picked the right route...highway 38 (Drain exit) is the way we always go because it maximizes I-5 travel time. i do have to LOL at you saying it's 'just south' of eugene....it's 30 miles south.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

Heading back in November; Saturday the 17th to Monday the 19th; 6 rounds in 3 days scheduled if the weather cooperates. Hoping to get in the Preserve one day as well as I have first time out on Saturday and Sunday; if we zip around and get right back out for a replay we might squeeze the Preserve in after.

Staying in the Inn; which I like a lot, on the wait list for a room in the lodge as it's so convenient for the hot tub/sauna and breakfast buffet.

Saturday is scheduled for Pacific then Bandon Trails
Sunday is Old Mac then Pacific
Monday is Bandon and then Trails

Tuesday is a get-away day. Even as a single the resort is pretty jammed up starting Monday as the rates get almost cut in half after the 18th of Nov.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

the group trip is in January, and i've gone down a time or two when not peak price when invited to fill in with a group of friends when a position opens, but i've never played there from April to November. the trip from Portland is 4.5 hours one way, so it's not exactly a spur of the moment thing, and i struggle to pony up the $250-275 fee per round in the summer when i know it's so much cheaper in the shoulder or low months.

and honestly, a big reason why i enjoy time there is because it's spent with great friends. of course the golf alone is amazing, but having the experience with people you really like makes it so much more.
