Recommended Posts

Not sure why Ive never played Bandon. But im going to make the trio in Feb. Im only 3.5 hourw away so easy trip. Ill stay one maybe 2 nights and play at least 36. I will play on Tuesdsy and Wednesdsy ..or thats the plan.

 

Going solo so if anybody wants to meet up gdt with me. 21 day advance tee times. Gal said it should be zero issue getting me out.

I never really realized how big a deal Bandon is until a year ago when I got back in to golf. Hanging out on various boards I see it is on virtualy everybodys list to play.

I went in 2009; spring break because my wife was teaching school at the time.  A lot of fun.  It poured rain the day before, all night long, and right up until our tee time.  Then the sun came out; beautiful day.  

 

I've been considering another trip in the winter.  The weather on the coast can be quite nice; just have to look for a decent extended forecast.  We are headed to Phoenix for the last two weeks in Jan.  So I'm not sure about Feb.  It would have to be a spur of the moment decision.

We always go some place warm in the winter, but we also go on short trips to places here in the NW. My wife still works, but I'm more flexible so I can go anytime.

I always chuckle at guys that live in small states and never seem to get out of their backyard. Like making a 2-3 hour drive is a huge deal. LOL

If you live in Oregon you certainly should be playing Brandon. At least once a year IMO. You have no excuse not to.

I live 2 hours and 33 min from Bandon Dunes. I haven't played down there in 5 years. Not because i don't want to.... The $275 a round slows me down a little. I remember playing both Dunes and Pac when they were first open for $50.

 

I'll most certainly make a trip in 2019. Just have to find the right weather weekend.

 

And Oregon is not small. Delaware is small. The county I live in is twice as big as Delaware.

LOL... Delaware is Tiny! Oregon is small. Texas is.... well - rather large. If I want to travel (which I do) to various places around the state I'm usually facing a 4-5 hour drive... or more depending where I'm headed. But I do agree - Bandon is pricey. So it's not a place I'd play regularly even if it were 30 minutes from home.

Bandon is definitely bucket list material for me. I used to go on trips with my dad when I was young, he would drive from TN to Seattle and the northwest left a wonderful impression on me.

 

Have fun on your trip!

Oregon is not small.  It is also not easy to get from one place to another because of the Cascade mountains.  Although I live in Washington, I am only 35 miles from the Oregon border and I'm only halfway to the Idaho border from Portland.  It takes me 8 hours to get to Bandon.

Making a trip to Bandon this winter as well. Some of the caddies have told me it's the most underrated time there and for the $100 resident rate...hard to beat. Thinking it may become a yearly trip in the winter. Being so close has its perks!

On the rare occasion lately I can sneak away....either EV or River Ridge. River Ridge is close to home so I end up being a range rat over there.
