My friend and I and our spouses visited Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in September and had a wonderful time. This area of Oregon is truly a golf destination. Our wives went along but did not play although my friend’s wife did caddy (at least she pulled his golf cart around for him). She wanted to see the course and the magnificent views of Oregon’s Pacific coastline. The views are stunning and the course marshals have no problem with spouses tagging along for the views.
The golf courses are superb (there are four 18-hole courses) and, having played them now, I believe that these courses truly merit their rankings in the top 100 Golf Magazine golf courses in the world. We stayed on site at Bandon’s resort facilities. The rooms were very good, not superb, but your there for the golf. All, and I do mean all, of the staff that we interacted with were professional, friendly, courteous, and helpful. The on-grounds restaurants were excellent and their wine lists featured many of the fine local boutique vineyards in Oregon.
If you are looking for a location with other attractions in addition to golf, you probably should seek different alternatives. Since our wives did not play golf, their in-the-area options were limited. That said, playing the four golf courses at Bandon Dunes is about as close to golf heaven as you are going to get on earth.
