Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

13th hole from back of 4 green. I cannot get away from big numbers this trip. 2 triples today shot 85. Like to crack 80 at least once when I come up. Opportunity slipping away Old Mac tomorrow eats my lunch.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

Pacific 9-10-11-12 is my favorite stretch on property, especially if you get to play 10 from up top. guessing you played 9 to the upper green?

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

i've had three or four early january weekends that look to be pretty much the exact same weather. low 40s and maybe a little overcast in the morning (best to keep the frost away) and cleared by late morning with no wind and temps in the high 50s/low 60s.

i really like seeing the course on a sunny day in december/january when the sun is low in the sky...it really accentuates all of the subtle contours of the fairways and greens.

one of the guys in my group has hired the same caddie the past few trips. he used to be a boxer and i thought his name was Nick. Trails is his favorite course and he did a great job coaching us around, when to pull driver and when to back off from the tee, etc. I also shot 8 strokes better than my course HC so that may have had something to do with it.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

Could be. Big tall dude? There's a couple of Nicks but yeah he is good. That was the best 9 holes I've ever played at Bandon. Epic sunset good friends, little booze, little herb, warm weather, and the green are the best on the resort right now hands down. Rolled so pure.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

My career rounds there:

Old Mac - 3
Pacific - 3
Bandon - 1
Preserve - 1
Trails - 0
Shortys - 0

Not any particular reason for those just the way the tee times worked out. Trails was supposed to be my last round last trip and I hoped to get out early for the 2nd round of the day but a group of 20 didn't let that happen. Add to that I was going off as a single so I passed since I had to drive back to Portland.

Skipping 2018 but will likely be back in 2019 in March again.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

That's a wrap. Back home now sore feet already scheming heading back on Tuesday. Weather forecast is same all week. This trip ranks up there with the best of them for sure. Hard not to when it's blue bird every day. And I agree, play trails more peeps! Bandon was in by far the best shape of the 4. Also random side note met Mike Keiser he tried to buy my buddy a beer. Didn't even know it was him until after haha. Guess he was on property for a few days. Thanks for following along. Bandon Dunes Trip Report

Hole 4 approach. First view of the ocean on Bandon.



My drive on 16. Bump and run to about 8 feet... missed it Bandon Dunes Trip Report played horrendous today actually

the grumpy ol' grandpa mentioned several posts above really doesn't like trails, so he doesn't schedule trails rounds on our trips. i'm not sure how many times he's played it since the renovation but apparently his dozen or so rounds pre-renovation have scarred him for life. unfortunately i'm at the mercy of my cruise director for the january trips.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

Chambers is changing their greens from fine fescue to poa. It's going to take a few seasons.

Re: Bandon Dunes Trip Report

About time they are. Good part about Fox winning rights to US Open is having to televise all the USGA events so we will get to see Bandon on tv, looking forward to that.

Didn't they show the fourball event from Pacific Dunes a couple years ago?
