OK. Our 2nd time playing this course. We're poor and can only afford the winter rates. We played yesterday, pretty hard steady rain. So what? It is just spectacular. The ocean waves, the scenery, the friendly people, it all comes together. No wonder it is the number one public access course in the US. I've played Pebble Beach 4 times,... More

What a special place, truly a homage to the way the game was created. Wonderful bunkering and scenic vistas along the ocean. No carts and how wonderful to see golf designed without having to see where they made concession to work an asphalt path into the hole. I would suggest taking a caddy for a great experience and to help... More

Very picturesque golf course. Gets a lot of play, which I think affects the quality of the greens. Layout is a lot of fun.

Golf Digest consistently ranks Pacific Dunes as the # 1 course in its "Courses You Can Play" rankings, and the ranking is well deserved. The views are spectacular, the course constantly offers new challenges, and the experience is memorable. The "Punchbowl" putting facility beside the clubhouse was also worth visiting and made for a fun after-golf diversion. It's hard to... More

We stopped off a couple places, but John Dellenback was the first place where we really got to experience massive dunes. I'd skip the other viewpoints and hit this trail only.

Read my overall review of the resort for more details. PD is not as great as Pebble but a VERY fine course. Trails is just as nice and more of a players course with out the tricked up greens. Amazing course and tops overall on the resort. Play it in the afternoon, sunny is better visually. Morning rounds are easier... More

If you can't make it to the British Isles for some golf the way it was meant to be played, Bandon, Oregon is the next best thing. So far, I've only played two of the four courses available, but we're going back later this year and take care of the others. Personally I preferred Pacific Trails over the Dunes, but... More

Terrific course. Could be a bear to play when wind is gusting to 25mph..Wide open with strategic bunkers. Great views of the Pacific Ocean.

It's hard to choose a favorite among Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes and Old Macdonald -- but if forced, mine would be Pac.
