Pacific Dunes par 3 11th holeThe first course at Bandon Dunes golf resort, opened on May 19, 1999. Bandon Dunes was designed by Scotsman David McLay Kidd, and it instantly garnered high praise. The course features gorse-lined fairways and numerous pot bunkers. The resort's second course, Pacific Dunes, opened on July 1, 2001. Pacific Dunes was designed by Michigan architect Tom Doak, and sculpted by his design firm, Renaissance Design, Inc. Pacific Dunes also opened to glowing reviews and quickly surpassed Bandon Dunes as the highest-rated course on the property. Pacific Dunes was rated the number one resort golf course in the country in 2005 by Golfweek magazine, placing just ahead of Pebble Beach. The resort's third course, Bandon Trails, was designed by the team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. Bandon Trails opened on June 1, 2005. Bandon Trails departs from its siblings in that no holes are routed along the Pacific Ocean. The course meanders through dunes, meadows, and forest land.[1] Upon its opening, Golf Odyssey, the preeminent newsletter devoted to golf travel, named Bandon Dunes, The Best Place on the Planet for Golf. A planned fourth course, Old Macdonald (in honor of Charles Blair Macdonald), is scheduled to open in the summer of 2010.[2] It is being designed by a team led by Tom Doak and Jim Urbina.[citation needed] Old Macdonald will open to the public for limited "preview" play of ten holes starting in April 2009. The United States Golf Association selected Bandon Dunes Golf Resort as the site of the 2011 U.S. Amateur Public Links and the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links championship tournaments, to be played June 27-July 2, 2011. Bandon Dunes has previously hosted two USGA events, the 2006 Curtis Cup, and the 2007 U.S. Mid-Amateur Golf Championship. Use of golf carts is not permitted at the resort, unless required for medical reasons. (Biblio: Article Source Click Here from
