TurfNet Bandon Dunes Trip 2012 Day Four

Second day at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort was a wonderful day playing the original golf course, Bandon Dunes.  The golf course plays out to the ocean and back in a traditional links style design right out of Ireland.
Our playing partners today were Mr. Walter Montross and his son Geoff from Virginia.  Mr. Montross just retired from over 40 years in the golf course industry and his son is an Assistant Golf Professional and can really play golf.
Robin hitting a shot in on #4 green.  We saw several deer roaming the golf course and were not at all worried about us. 
Stacked sod bunker on #6. 
Links style bunkers were great to play out of and they were strategically placed in all the right places.
Here I am teeing it up on #13, out toward the ocean.

Another stacked sod bunker on the beautiful #16 green right out on the edge of the Pacific Ocean.

After some lunch and a little rest we went to Bandon Preserve to play in the afternoon.  A great Par 3 golf course created by the owner of Bandon Dunes to not only provide the guests with another great way to experience Bandon but all the proceeds from the greens fees goes into his environmental charity which is providing funds to organizations in Oregon to do sustainable projects and promote environmental activities.
Off to Old MacDonald in the morning.
