The best golf course on the whole West Coast bar none and I get to play for under $100 in the winter time when the weather is the best

Perhaps the most scenic and toughest of the Bandon quartet this course is particularly challenging because of the severity of the trouble near many greens as wells the significant contouring of the greens. Even when you're playing your second shot out of the same bunker it is hard not appreciate the awesomeness of Mother Nature coupled with the genius of the course design. Don't be fooled by the shorter back nine with multiple par 3s and 5s. It is a monster full of challenging shots.
Key to our enjoyment of the course was our caddy Matt Parise, whom we found through another Tripadvisor member. He has significant experience and college background in golf. His ability to calibrate almost immediately what club you should be hitting allows more time for appreciation. He tells you just enough about the upcoming hole to allow you to be aware while still swinging freely. My son, who has extensive professional playing experience, said with most caddies when there was a disagreement on line or club the caddy was wrong 90% of the time but found just the reverse to be true with Matt. In our seven rounds we saw several other caddies who were all competent but none came close to Matt.

This is the second course built at the resort. It's very challenging, but a great test of golf. World class closing hole.

OK. Our 2nd time playing this course. We're poor and can only afford the winter rates. We played yesterday, pretty hard steady rain. So what? It is just spectacular. The ocean waves, the scenery, the friendly people, it all comes together. No wonder it is the number one public access course in the US. I've played Pebble Beach 4 times, Spyglass Hill numerous times, they are very nice of course, but they really don't compare. This is bucket list stuff people. If you're an avid golfer like me, you should treat yourself. PS: I'm 71 yrs old and shot 77 and I only drive the ball 210 yds. The putting is where it is at. Extremely difficult to read the greens, but you can putt from 100 ft away.
