It began in 1999 with the opening of Bandon Dunes. Designed by Scotsman David McLay Kidd, the course is perched on a bluff high above the Pacific Ocean. Bandon Dunes unfolds along pristine native dunes where expansive ocean views are revealed on nearly every hole. The course is completely natural and routed through an environment of indigenous vegetation. Beyond breathtaking scenery lies the game of golf in its truest form. This is a thinkers course. Winds are ever-present, and the varying elements create a new experience each time you play.
As a walking-only golf resort, our goal is to enhance your experience through the utilization of caddies. Caddies come to Bandon Dunes with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Some are professional caddies from other resorts, private clubs and the professional tours. We also have an extensive training program for those who wish to start a new career as a caddie. Additionally, we support the Evans Scholarship program and many of our caddies are Evans Scholars.
