Best course at Bandon
Without a doubt this course is the most fun course I've played on. I played 2 rounds on back to back days - one with wind and one without - and the course plays completely different.
Greens are hard and landing it short and letting it roll is the way to go. Putter is ALWAYS an option and make sure you practice your low punch shot before you go out and play there.
Invest in a yardage book if you dont have a caddy. Trust me ... you'll need it. I am going to try and play this course once a year if I can.
The Next Great Bandon Dunes Course
Adding a fifth great course to the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort seems like a monumental task. But they may have done everything right to be the perfect compliment to the other four phenomenal courses.
The Sheep Ranch is a fabled piece of property that has existed North of Old Mac for years. The cliff line and views have always been utterly fantastic. So now to see it finally come to life with a full 18 holes golf course was amazing. Nearly 9 greens on the water and views of the ocean on almost every single hole including the clubhouse.
The course itself is still very young, the greens were slow but showing tons of promise. The routing and lack of sand bunkers make for a very fun round as this could end up being the easiest course at the resort. But there is a secret weapon for the Sheep Ranch, the wind can turn this course into the most difficult as there is zero protection and almost always wind of some kind.
You won't find too many courses that are more fun and and a course that compliments a resort that is already the best in the world.
Go play it. Just do it.
