Overview

Bandon Trails is the lowest-ranked of the four Bandon courses on America’s 100 Greatest, probably because it’s the only one not immediately adjacent to the Pacific coastline. But we consider it such a compelling layout that it needs no seascape to command one’s attention. Bandon Trails starts and finishes in serious sand dunes (the 18th being recently altered by Coore) while the remainder rolls through Oregon forest. Bump-and-run is the name of the game but the structure of each hole requires thoughtful bumps and targeted runs. Its most controversial hole is the short par-4 14th with a thumb of a green personally fashioned by Crenshaw.
