What more could you want from a golf course?
No other modern course captures the spirit of what makes golf fun more than Bandon Dunes. It’s might be America’s most authentic links – the only other courses that could compete for that title exist on the same property. The routing rushes to the ocean then dancing away before rushing back. Holes meet the sea atop dramatic cliffs few courses around the world can match. Everything about Bandon Dunes is done right. It exists for golf – fun golf – and nothing more. It a spectacular and unforgettable experience.
Bandon Dunes reminded me that golf is supposed to be a fun, creative game, with endless ways to find the bottom of the hole. Like every course on the property, it feels mature beyond its years. Perched up along a bluff amongst natural sand dunes, Bandon Dunes does not offer any reprieve from the elements. Nothing at Bandon Dunes feels forced. Every fairway, every bunker, every wispy blade of grass is sitting right where it was always meant to be.Golf Is Mental
One of the areas where Kidd excelled in the design of Bandon Dunes is in the framing of holes and shots. To a degree I can’t remember on other courses, he gives interesting targets and aiming points on each shot. Greens and fairways are framed by sand dunes, the ocean, pot bunkers, and gorse. His course routing is so natural it looks like it has been there for a century and is part of the natural landscape.Playing the Top 100
Mirroring the birthplace of golf in both climate and countryside, the construction completes the coastal linksland vision that was intended here. Surf, sand and seabreeze, amid the sloping grounds, provides the common elements to this traditional layout. Like the opposing ocean tide, Bandon Dunes flows back and forth to the shoreline, offering handfuls of stunning views.NW Golf Guys

When to Play
Bandon Dunes is open year around.
Temperatures on the Oregon Coast are relatively consistent year round, with an average high of 67 degrees in August and September and 54 degrees in December and January. Bandon – like most of Western Oregon – is exceedingly wet from mid-fall through spring. It barely rains in summer.
If you’re looking to avoid rain, June through September is your best bet. But the Oregon Coast is fickle; you can have days in January as nicer than days in July. Really, any time you can get to Bandon Dunes is a great time to play.
Information not available, but it’s Oregon so it’s probably cloudy all fall / winter / spring and beautiful in the summer.
