I visited Bandon Dunes Resort in June 2004, just a couple of months before my daughter was born. I purchased a child’s Bandon Dunes hat, with the distinctive puffin logo, and both Sydney and my son, Liam, wore it at various times.
Is Bandon Dunes the best golf resort in the world? I have a hard time thinking of a better one. I’ve looked forward to returning for years — and will do so this April. I’ll get a chance to play the first 10 holes at Old Macdonald, the latest course to be built at Bandon, and one scheduled to open officially months from now.
