Traveled all the way from the southeast coast to get here. Made the quest as we heard there was serious golf to be played here and a must stop on any accomplished golfers list. Flew into Portland and took Seaport Air to Coos Bay. Excellent airline is Seaport Air. Friendly and accommodating. Got all our bags on despite the full flight. May have heard a stall warning on the ascent but went away quickly. Traveling companion tipped the pilots for a wonderful flight. Had great van driver, Sarin, from Aviation Transportation. Had beers in his cooler and was happy to stop at store for supplies. Stayed in the Lily Pond cottages, Excellent roomy space. Beds very comfortable. Shower pressure a little weak. Great housekeeping. Now onto the golf. Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes and Old MacDonald are worthy of their rating. I have played all over the world and these courses rate with the best. The grass on the greens of Bandon and Pacific was struggling,with many brown spots. The putted true however. Bandon Trails on the other hand is another story.l Crenshaw and Coore ruined Pinehurst No2 and I their more inland design here was nothing special. Blind shots, ridiculous tiered greens made the course highly unenjoyable and I had four birdies! Play it once to say you did as all golf is somewhat subjective. The par 3 course it OK, perfect for a good warm up round on the evening you arrive. You only need a few wedges, a putter and maybe a nine iron to play it. The food all B+. Try all of the restaurants. Sourdough french toast delicious in the AM and they may have the best bacon in the world. Best place and deal is the buffet at the lodge for breakfast. Dinners all varied at the different places and fairly good. Excellent service throughout resort. A truly amazing experience, but the golf is not for hackers. Need to be a 15 or less to really be able to play these courses and have some enjoyment. A must play for all accomplished golfers.

Room Tip: lots of variety, suspect all options are good. Would be nice to be in Lodge as would be easier for breakfast, but essentially a no wait shuttle service throughout resort.

I brought a group of twenty from our company to Bandon. As mentioned, it's not the easiest place to get to, especially from the East Coast, but once there you don't have to leave the resort.

Golf courses are outstanding. Bandon Trails' finishing holes have been reworked so that course ends better than before. Views are great.

Food is reasonably priced and you have different options. Things are very well planned out. The Bunker Bar allows cigars, has pool tables, sports on TV, etc.... and is open late. It is in the main lodge building but fully separated from any housing by two floors so no one upstairs can hear any noise coming from it.

Service was very good and anticipated our needs. We wanted to have a little pizza and beer party in one of our suites to watch the World Series. I already had a fridge brought in to the room, but wanted to ice down a fair amount of beer. I was asking for a couple of bags of ice, when they volunteered to bring down a full ice chest. No charge, just delivering what I needed.

One suggestion is to allow plenty of time for the shuttles to arrive and to get to your course. There's nothing worse than rushing off to the first tee at a nice resort. Get a caddy even if you have to share one carrying two bags. Really ads to the experience. In addition to help with shots, you will be much more rested for the walks and I find that I play better that way.

Last time we chartered a bus from Portland with an overnight stop in Eugene. This time (same size group) everyone is flying in via the United flights from San Francisco.

Keep in mind, there isn't much for non-golfers to do at the resort or in the surrounding area.

The Preserve Course is a nice way to end the day and paying your green fee supports their conservation efforts.

Room Tip: Lots of variety. Check the offerings on the website to see what best suits you.

Bandon Dunes gets it. Golf is outstanding. Staff and service are first-rate. The accommodations were nice but not extravagant -- comfortable and clean, but nothing more. Food is a good value -- quality is good, value is high -- especially considering it is a resort. For example, you cannot beat a $10 breakfast buffet. The hotel is well-organized and well-run, and the staff are very attentive to your needs.

Every golf course was memorable and the overall experience was amazing. Take caddies if you can. Don't forget to play Bandon Preserve! Cannot wait to return!

I have been lucky enough to go to many great golf resorts but this was by far the best. The courses were challenging yet forgiving. Awe inspiring, with many holes looking out on the ocean. We saw whales in the distance. The caddies were great. The caddies made the round enjoyable. ( ask for Dan). It took me two rounds to believe the break on the greens he was telling me. Believe in your caddie. Accommodations were great! Spend some time sitting in the Adirondack chairs over the 18th green watching everyone come in at the end of their round. Food at the restaurants was good, not a lot of seafood choices, as I was expecting, but those that were there we're good. USE MOSQUITO REPELLANT WHICH THEY PROVIDE. Don't miss it. The two weeks after Labor Daywere said tonhavevthe best weather and they were right

If you are looking for the ultimate golf trip experience...look no further. It is an incredible pain in the neck to get there from the East Coast but worth the trip. Once you arrive, there is no reason to leave the property. The courses are some of the best, the scenery is breathtaking and the staff is friendly, welcoming and seem generally happy to be working there.
It's all walking and I recommend having a caddie every time you play a new course. Their knowledge was invaluable and also added to the group experience. Fortunately i was not paying the bill but I imagine this place is not cheap. I was traveling with a group of 8 men and we had a blast. If time and money were no object...I would return every year.
