Bandon Dunes - How Does This Course Sequence Look?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Just booked Bandon Dunes trip for July -- any suggested changes to this course sequence based on experience?

 

--First Day--

-7:35 AM landing at North Bend (30 mins from the resort) on a flight from Portland

-9:50 AM Bandon Trails, then 3:30 PM Bandon Preserve (the new par-3) [[or should I do Preserve then Trails]]

 

Forest King room at the Inn (Lodge NE/NW rooms were booked up)

 

--Second Day--

-7 AM Bandon Dunes (first tee time of the day), then 1:20 PM Pacific Dunes [[Bandon booked up that afternoon]]

 

--Third Day--

-7 AM Old Mac, then 12:40 PM Pacific Dunes again [[reservationist suggested Old Mac in AM for less wind than in PM]]

-8 PM flight from North Bend to San Fran, then redeye to east coast

 

Thanks in advance!

You aren't looking for advice, you're just bragging! a1_smile.gif That looks like a lot of fun on beautiful courses. Have a great time!

Good play, playing Pacific Dunes twice. They are all awesome, but Pacific is awesome-er.

I just booked a trip for the end of September, first time ever going, and taking my Dad who hasn't been there either.  Right now we are playing Pacific at around 10 am on a Monday, Old Mac at about 8 on Tuesday and Pacific again that day at about 2.  Finally we play Bandon at about 8:30 on Wednesday.  I might be able to switch the second round at Pacific for Trails, but with everything I've heard about Pacific, I am leaning toward playing there twice.  Plus, my Dad is 71 and has a bad knee and I heard Trails was the toughest to walk.  Thoughts?

 

Also, anyone here have any luck getting a cart for someone with a bad knee, but not "officially" disabled?

 

Thanks

I've played with someone who had a cart but it was quite a few years ago.  I'm not sure what their policy is now but you rarely see anyone playing from a cart.   Your rounds sound good If he can walk Pacific he could do Trails they have a shuttle for the toughest climb there.

September should be good but you never know.
