Of all the Bandon Dunes courses, personally, I like this one the best. I played from the 5,600 yard markers, and felt guilty, almost, when I was so much further forward than the tips, but it's a lot more fun when you play from a yardage that fits your ability. There's enough strategic considerations to keep you looking at the yardage book for a couple minutes on every tee box, but again, it makes the game a lot more fun when you can aim (or try) for a landing area that is conducive to the next shot. Tight lies are the key words on all the courses at Bandon Dunes, so make sure you can hit the big ball first. Otherwise, keep it on the ground by using a putting driver, pitching wedge, and your putter. You'll score a lot better if you do. As usual, the staff was friendly, accommodating, and helpful.
