Big dunes, deep forests and crazy fun
Even in Bandon – a place full of courses that are “different” – Bandon Trails stand apart as something unique. It starts as a straight-up links course but then instead of turning for the cliffs, it goes inland and plunges into a thick coastal pine forest. What follows is dramatic hole after dramatic hole that tumble over massive inland dunes and through sandy waste areas. More than anything, the course resembles an Oregon version of the great English heathland courses. But it’s more diverse and striking. It’s a unique course and a fantastic experience to play.
I t’s forest, but with very wide fairways – rarely are you ever in danger of losing a ball to the trees. It has the same blowout bunkers as the other three courses. You feel like you’re at a coastal course, but you look around and you’re in a forest – it’s a surreal experience. The wide fairways, dramatic bunkers and sheer acreage of the course make you feel a sense of grandeur that I rarely feel on a golf course – even on very highly rated courses. Bandon Trails gets extremely high ratings for shot value in my book – quite simply, it’s fun.Breaking Eighty
Bandon Trails looks and feels like Nebraska or Wyoming, with intense elevation changes, vast meadows and canyons, and rich forested terrain. Dramatic vistas of mountain ranges and the Pacific Ocean on the horizon are mesmerizing, and for many golfers it will be their favorite course on the property because of how well Coore and Crenshaw executed their masterful design.Wisco Golf Addict
Trails begins and ends within the pristine duneland and takes golfers on an absorbing journey across a sandy meadow and up into an undulating forest of spruce, pine and cedar. Despite being built away from the coastline and the very element that has made Bandon Dunes famous, Bandon Trails is an exciting layout with a strong and distinctive identity.Planet Golf
Bandon Trails has large landing zones, yet many strategically placed fairway bunkers require a target golf approach. While there’s plenty of room to operate, and a fair mix of user-friendly holes, Bandon Trails has many hazardous areas and the least forgiveness for errant shots. There’s ample driving space between the outlying old growth forests, however, trouble spots reside around the greens which are often tucked into unplayable and precarious surroundings.NW Golf Guys

When to Play
Bandon Trails 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.
