Women Golfers' Bandon Visit
We spent 3 days at Bandon and concur with all reviews on the quality of the golf, food, accommodations and staff, including caddies. It is a first class experience with one significant caveat. By way of background, it appeared to us that about 10% of the guests/ golfers were women. This is understandable since this is and should be a challenging golf experience. But we felt there was an undercurrent of an element of frat boy behavior that was evident at several points of our visit. Unruly, loud, drunken behavior in the next chrome lake condo as there boys returned to the condo at night. Loud inconsiderate behaviour when they got up causing us to beat on the wall. A dinner group behind us at the lovely Pacific Dunes restaurant replete with loud, vulgar, intoxicated behavior. Honestly, having been to many wonderful golf resorts, we have never experienced this kind of behavior around us at the quality of this type of resort. We had an absolutely wonderful golf experience. But I think the management owes it to all its guests to be clear that uncivil and discourteous behavior negatively impacts the experience of other guests and will be addressed promptly.
Amazing Golf Experience!
We visited Bandon Dunes for two days of golf and it was a wonderful experience. The courses are beautiful and the staff is gracious and attentive. Everything about the experience lived up the Bandon Dunes reputation. Thanks for creating such a great golf experience such a beautiful place!
Amazing Golf, great scenery, good food, average $$$ accommodations
If you love true golf with incredibly challenging greens that are a real version of a Links course plus a ton of wind then Bandon Dunes golf is for you! The courses were challenging even for the low handicapped golfer. The greens were like glass that has so opportunities to miss.The practice facility was first class as well as the free par 3 practice course. I have to admit playing the punch bowl putting course was a blast with our group. all in all a golfers dream! The spa was average but not great, they definitely need an upgrade to really make this place world class, I would not waste my time here. most of the food and service was pretty good with reasonable pricing for breakfast and lunch. dinner was a bit pricier and that is where the food seemed to also take a dip, good but not great. The cottage we stayed in was fairly clean but for the price was not what it should have been. $475 bucks a day x 4 guys per cottage$$$ for the $8K we spent this place should have been amazing. essentially it was a bed, shower and a living space with a mini fridge. really no frills the only part that was great about the cottage they were in the woods and on a lake. I am not sure of the hotel or smaller rooms regarding pricing and quality. i would go again it was memorable just have to be a great reason to spend all of that money just on housing especially when you are never there because of all of the great golf.
Wife of a golfer
Writing this review strictly from the spouse of a golfer perspective. We recently visited Bandon Dunes during a vacation built around the fact that this place is on my husband's golf course "bucket list"! We stayed at the Inn. First impression of the resort was that it is truly beautiful with rolling hills and picturesque clubhouse facilities. Our room at the Inn was nice - small - but all we really needed. The rooms, and everything at the resort, cater to the fact that most visitors are men and golfers. No full length mirror to be found! What I liked: Walking trails were challenging and gave me something to do while my husband played one round each of the two days we were there. I'd consider my breakfast at the Trails End clubhouse the highlight of my meals onsite. Staff in the restaurants were extremely friendly and accomodating, in particular, the folks at Trails End and the Pacific Grill. What I didn't like: Besides walking there was NOTHING to do while hubby was golfing. Cleaning the room came quite late in the day - close to 3pm both days. Apps at the Tufted Puffin were mediocre at best and McKee's Pub was the same. Having gone through all that, I have to say that my husband RAVED about the golf courses. He played Bandon Dunes and Pacific Dunes and couldn't have been more thrilled about both courses. And when all is said and done, because he was happy, I was happy. Would I return with him? Yes....I'd just bring a few books or magazines because there is no where on site to buy one!
Great golf location
After years of golf trips around the world, we finally made it to Bandon and what a great golf resort. We stayed in the lodge and played all the courses with caddies. Each day was clear, but the wind did come up on a couple of days making the courses challenging. The courses are all spectacular, well laid out and challenging. The club house facilities are modern and comfortable and the staff friendly. Whilst there isn’t really anywhere to visit outside the resort, the dining and bar options are good, the food is great and wine selection extensive. The spa is also well worth a visit and reasonably priced. It’s a long way from Australia, but well worth the visit.
