    Bandon Dunes = The Best The Best!

    I spent 8 Days at Bandon Dunes in June and all I can say is these are the 5 best courses I have ever played and that says alot. I have been lucky enough to play places like Whistling Straits, Erin Hills, Sand Valley, Arcadia Bluffs etc and they are not even close to the level of the Bandon Dunes courses. Bandon Dunes is so good for so many reasons but lets first start with the golf courses. Each one is so different and natural elements of the land, ocean etc make them unlike anything I have ever played. The firm and fast conditions make them play like something from "over the pond". The caddies also add to the expereince and I would def take one if ya can The customer service at Bandon Dunes is an A+++++ and they understand how to treat guests they you would expect at a resort like this. Food and lodging are fantastic and the great thing about Bandon is once you are there ya never have to leave. You also dont need any cash as you can get it from the front desk of any proshop and they will add it to your tab.

    Unmatched and unreal.

    We hit unbelievable weather but even still, this place is unbelievable. Stayed in Lilly Pond. Beds were very comfortable and rooms spacious. Shuttles are very quick and drivers are great. I love how they don’t have their hands in your pockets. Coffee is free, breakfast sandwiches are huge and only $8. Ghost Tree restaurant is legit. Would have eaten here twice if I would have known sooner. The golf is 5 star. Each course is different and the par 3 preserve is so nice and unique. Our group of 48 had a private tournament on the punch bowl and I would recommend. We hit great weather for 4 of the 5 days It’s as close to Scotland that I’ve played over here and overall much better than Pebble experience. Can’t wait to go back.

    Bandon Dunes Golf - greens conditions were deplorable

    2 years in the making due to reservation backlogs. Finally, get to this mythical place everyone talks about. The vistas are outstanding. The courses are pretty good, but only Pac Dunes and Bandon Trails were complete courses (and in playable condition). Old Mac and Sheep Ranch were unplayable - the greens were a complete disgrace. Bandon Dunes greens were just acceptable. The resort never said anything about poor course conditions - no discounts, nothing... Caddies are really costly and all but one were really poor, not knowledgeable about how to hit shots into the greens, and reading greens - forget it. Service staff were great, food was pretty good. Shuttle service is great. Long, very tiring trip to get there from the east coast.

    Perfect as usual

    This was my 4th time to Bandon Dunes and it just gets better every time. I have no idea how anyone is rating the complex anything under 4 stars. The golf courses are all amazing. Yes, it's a difficult place to get to but that's also what makes it special. If you want great food, then go to dinner somewhere nice. Bandon is all about the location, views and camaraderie that you get from a kick ass golf trip. All of the food I've ever had there is well above average. The Old Mac breakfast sandwich is a home run and there is nothing wrong with the sauna and hot tub before or after golf. Better than Pebble Beach and Pinehurst any day of the week.

    I am an avid golfer with lots of trips under my belt. For years have heard how great Bandon Dunes is. I finally got there last week and....extremely disappointed. If you live in pretty much any other time zone, the travel to get to Bandon is extreme. Then when you get there, decent chance your room won’t be ready. The piece of property is beautiful. The golf courses? Meh. Just because golf was played on hard turf without much grass in the 1500s doesn’t mean that’s fun. And the wind is just exhausting. Restaurants are only ok. Our group of 8 had two caddies that were just not good. One didn’t speak English and the other had no understanding of golf etiquette. On a positive note my caddie Cody was great. I won’t return. I don’t get all the hype. Too much money and travel for what it is.
