Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Focus

Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon, USA, has quickly established itself as one of the world’s best golf resorts.

Located on a 23-mile stretch of raw untouched coastline, the resort has five 18-hole courses, Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes, Bandon Trails, Old MacDonald, Sheep Ranch and Bandon Preserve, a 13-hole short course; as well as a ‘Punchbowl,’ a giant putting course that pays homage to the Himalayas Putting Course at St. Andrews.

Bandon Dunes opened in 1999 and was the vision of one man, paper recycling magnate Michael Keiser, whose love for the ancient links of Scotland and seaside golf compelled him to acquire the land and leave a legacy in the USA to this purest form of golf.

Golfing World recently visited the resort and caught up with general manager Hank Hickox to talk about its rapid rise, famed caddie program and sustainable development and care for the environment.
