Detailed description

Bandon Dunes Golf Resort is a resort 72-hole golf facility located in Brandon, Oregon. The facility has four world-class 18-hole golf courses. The courses are the Bandon Dunes, Brandon Dunes Course, Brandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes Course, Brandon Dunes, Pacific Trails Course, and Brandon Dunes, Old Macdonald Course. Some say that there is no other place on earth that has as much outstanding and drop-dead gorgeous golf as Brandon, Oregon. Bandon has four courses ranked by golf pundits and players alike as among the best of the best. Bandon Dunes Golf Resort was created and financed by greeting card baron Mike Keiser.

These five distinctly different courses occupy a beautiful stretch of sand dunes perched 100 feet above the Pacific Ocean. Bandon Dunes and Pacific Dunes feature a dozen holes that run along the bluff overlooking 23 miles of sweeping, undisturbed shoreline. Bandon Trails begins on a massive dune, works its way through open meadows and upland forest, and then finishes in the dunes. Old Macdonald moves through dune to ocean revealing breathtaking views throughout. Brandon Preserve is a mixture of styles and is considered my many to be the #1 par-3 course in America.

The Bandon Dunes, Brandon Dunes Course was this first of the four courses. The Bandon Dunes Course opened in 1999. The course was designed by David McLay Kidd.

The Bandon Dunes, Brandon Dunes Course features gorse-lined fairways and numerous pot bunkers. The course picks up steam at the 428-yard 5th hole, where your drive and approach shots must thread rough-strewn mounds. The bunkering is masterful, a deep sod-walled design that good aggressive players into foolhardy plays while steering higher handicaps to safer terrain. No. 13 -- a 553-yard par 5 -- has no bunkers at all, but the rolling ground presents no shortage of quandaries.

The Bandon Dunes, Brandon Dunes Course measures 6,732 yards from the tips and plays to a par of 72. From the forward tees, the course measures 5,125 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 9, a par-5 that plays to 558 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 6, a par-3 that plays to 161 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, a 428-yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at The Bandon Dunes, Brandon Dunes Course is # 12, a 199 yard par-3.
