Here's a very cool way of experiencing Bandon Dunes

A colleague sent me a link to Ashworth Golf's Bandon Dunes portfolio and I'm fairly sure he wanted to kill my Monday morning productivity. I can't look away.

This portfolio offers a very cool way of experiencing Bandon Dunes in 15 photos. When you click on one of the black-and-white thumbnails you can view a much larger version of that image, sometimes in full color. Lock that image into place and just study it.

Here are three images that I love:

This portfolio is part of a larger microsite that celebrates Bandon Dunes. Among other things, there's a section that introduces you to Mike Keiser, the guy responsible for the creation of Bandon Dunes, an outline of an ideal itinerary for five days at the resort (I don't agree with all of it, but that's the beauty of Bandon...there's no one perfect itinerary), and an introduction to the eccentric, fascinating Grant Rogers, Bandon's head of instruction.

Just in case you need more Bandon in your life, the resort's own website offers a live cam of Bandon Dunes, Bandon Trails, Pacific Dunes and the Punchbowl (a massive putting green).

So yeah, you can go ahead and say goodbye to your productive Monday.
