We just played the course. We have already played, Pacific Dunes, Bandon Dunes and Bandon Trails. We had a perfect day, 60 deg, 8mph wind. The course is basically unplayable for the AVERAGE golfer. I'm 70 yrs old and a 7 hdcp. It IS a links style course. The fairways are links style, so are the greens. The problem is the 2nd or 3rd shot into the green. It CANNOT be played as a links style course. Requires a high ball flight for the 2nd or 3rd shot. Not exactly a links shot. Otherwise you''ll be in a bunker in front of the green or in a huge deep depression. No way to bounce it on the green. I've done this before, on and off for 40+ years. Also, it is BRUTAL to walk. Takes a minimum of 4&3/4 hours. We had fun, but it is NOT true links course.

    Bandon Dunes has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. and the World by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

    Bandon Dunes was this first course at the resort. It opened to raves in 1999. And rightly so: David McLay Kidd's design may labor under the ever lengthening shadow cast by Pacific Dunes, but it's still one of the best tracks you'll ever play. 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, deep sodwalled affairs that goad 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.
