Bandon Dunes is true to the spirit of Scotland’s ancient links. Here, players immerse themselves in the traditions of a timeless game and the grandeur of Oregon’s rugged coast. Sweeping, untamed shores stretch for miles. Primeval grassy dunes roll to the sea. Four distinctly different courses have been conceived in harmony with the natural environment. They combine with all the essential elements to reveal a new golf experience every time you play.

TripAdvisor Ratings & Reviews
Just booked 7th trip!
Some pictures for anyone about to book Bandon Dunes. I stay at "The Inn" as it tends to be quieter than the Lodge and it also has a bar/lounge (opens at 5pm) and you can also order off the Gallery restaurant. It's a short walk to the Lodge and also Bandon Trails/Preserve. It has a few TV's, comfortable seating with Adirondack chair located just outside overlooking 18th green. Travel tip: Groups of 4 or more should easily book 8 months ahead especially if staying thru a weekend. Booking early in the week doesn't book as quickly. The entire staff is always very friendly and accommodating. Shuttle service is quick and prompt and drivers friendly. Based on my travel to Bandon, the spring is prettiest time of year with gorse in bloom and the winter months yield the best rainbows and sunsets.
Wonderful golf, great staff, balance so-so
My wife and I went there in July. We thought that the two courses we played (Bandon Dunes and Pacific Dunes) were two of the prettiest courses we've played. Our caddie for the two rounds, Eric, was knowledgeable and pleasant. We stayed in the Lodge in a room overlooking the first hole of Bandon Dunes. The room was a good size and well appointed. We were a bit disappointed in the dining experiences in the Gallery and and Pacific Grill. While the staff at both locations were pleasant and attentive, the food quality was just o.k. Given the remote location, we would have hoped for better dining options.
Best golf resort in the US
Went to Bandon for a golf trip with 4 friends and can’t say enough great things. If you have a group that regularly does golf trips and haven’t been there yet, than this is your next one. Book it now!
Great golf, discrimintatory service, not good
Old Mac and Bandon Dunes are phenomenal, caddies are top notch and personable. The general staff at the main lodge, however, were very unreasonable, refusing to be open to dialogue. A 3rd party that I do not know supposedly did something, and I was treated as if I personally behaved inappropriately. It is disappointing that a respected establishment like Bandon Dunes to not treat all patrons with respect, When talking to management, they were very dismissive and “high and mighty”. Empathy and respect are concepts that appear to be understood by Bandon Dunes management The grounds are phenomenal, just hope that the customer service improves.
Guys Golf Spot
The surroundings and golf courses are beautiful. Setting along the cliffs is really amazing. The town of Bandon itself is quaint and offers a few shopping and dining options which is nice if you are the "wife" and want to get off property. The town is located about 6 miles away and you can easily access the beach just outside of town. The Bandon Dunes resort is definitely a "guys getaway" type place. We went with another couple and our husbands loved the golf experience, and we enjoyed the quiet time away. With that being said, there is no spa, no pool, no shops (except primarily golf wear for men). So if you're female, go with this in mind as I wish I'd done my homework and would not have anticipated something more. We stayed in the Lily Pond rooms and they are close to the main Lodge. Easy walk. With that being said, they are bare bones in amenities. Has more of a rustic "going to camp" feel. No air conditioning which is probably not an issue most of the time, but it was warm and muggy when we were there and room was uncomfortable. The rooms are dark and dim. We had all the lights on and it was still dim. Maybe brighter light bulbs would help... We did enjoy the little deck that overlooked the pond. We saw several deer and ducks, etc. Shuttle service around the property is great - really quick. Pretty walking trails and peaceful atmosphere. For restaurants, we had dinner in the Gallery, Pacific Grill and lunch in the smaller place at the Trails course (can't remember name, it has more Asian food). Meal at Pacific Grill was the best. Best service and best flavors and presentation. Gallery was disappointing in service, and meal itself. Overpriced for what we received. Our favorite overall was the Cobb salad at the Lodge during lunch time. If you're looking for a guys golf spot and great golf, go for it. Leave the wife/girlfriend at home.
