“Best of the four Bandon courses”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

IMO Pacific is the best of the 4 Bandon courses. Pricey but it's a once in a lifetime experience. My favorite hole was a forced carry over a crevasse...it played alongside the Pacific...this is the worth the price of admission. I'd play here again tomorrow, but would have take a 2nd mortgage the house to do so. Take advantage of the practice facilities...they are included in the price and will help you get used to true links golf. Lots of bump and run here. Don't be surprised if you have a 300 yard drive with the wind at your back and the hard packed fairways. Enoy the view.

“Fantastic, if you can find them!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Not easy to spot the dunes from the highway because of vegetation/trees; however, we were given directions to a dune buggy area, and it was great!

“Don't miss Pacific Dunes”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Merely walking along the beautiful 18 holes at Pacific Dunes would provide enough visceral rewards to last a lifetime. But actually playing golf there is an experience that can be matched by only a few venues in the world. The new golfers' mecca.

“The best of the Bandon Four”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

One of the conversations that are had on any Bandon trip is "which course is the best" and you get a lot of different answers. For me (I have played 34 of the Top 100 on Golf Magazine's list to date) Pacific Dunes is the best course. While tricky, the risk reward factor and the ocean views are just incredible. Bandon, Trails and Old Macdonald are no slouches but Pacific is the the top for me,
