Course Review and Comments

Some of the most overrated golf courses I have ever played. The resort was a pleasant surprise - excellent food and wine but the golf was mediocre. Pacific Dunes is an awful golf course - their various ratings are clearly a testament to the resort's advertising budget, not the quality of design. The short par 4 on Bandon Trails (#14, I think) is one of the five worst holes in the known universe. Unfortunately, most of the resort is unrealized potential and hype.

Kudos to ownership for promoting a no golf cart environment and if it did not require a shirpa to get there, I would return to play Bandon Dunes. But it is a lot of time and effort to play overrated and mediocre golf. Bandon just does not compare to Pinehurst and Pebble.
