    Do you ever get a chance to venture south the of Washington border? There are a lot of great courses in Oregon (ours among them). And as we say: “Some land is made is made for golf. Bandon, Oregon is one of those places. This charming little town on the southern Oregon coast has become a major golf destination, and Bandon Crossings Golf Course rounds out the offerings. It has excellent conditioning, moderate expense, and is available for walking or power carts.”

    I was just noticing the banner photo at the top of your website – I’m 99.9% certain that is the par 3 hole #17 at Bandon Crossings Golf Course in Bandon, Oregon. (A short hop over a lovely pond, and a great hole in one opportunity). Perhaps you SHOULD play and review the course!

    I believe you are correct on the picture credit. A trip to Bandon is definitely on my list. I have only play one round in Oregon and that was at The Reserve just outside of Portland. I live in Colorado now so it isn’t quite as close as Washington but I really want to take my father out there for a trip. What’s grenerally a good time of year to come and visit? I am assuming July-September like the Seattle area?

  4. Carla says:

    Yes, that’s the best time of year. It will usually be dry, but can be windy, especially at the resort right on the ocean (often 2 clubs or more). Sometimes foggy on the coast, too. Less wind and fog at Bandon Crossings, a mile inland. September is good. High season Bandon Dunes Resort costs are high ($275), but many consider it worth it. Bandon Crossings is $75, plus cart if you want one. (no carts at the Dunes, but caddies available). Other times of year it is more likely to rain, but these coastal courses drain and play well all year, and the price is lower in the off season. It’s beautiful country. Try flying into North Bend for a quicker trip. (or fly Denver-Eugene and drive 3 hours). Love to help you out with any lodging arrangements. Call the Home on the Range lodging listed on the bandoncrossings.com.
