I spent a crazy day heading across country to get to the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort this afternoon. Crazy as in Toronto, San Fran, North Bend, half hour drive. But it is worth it. The late afternoon saw me wander around with Jim Urbina, part of the design team with Tom Doak at Pacific Dunes and now at Old Macdonald, which will open 10 holes to some preview play on Wednesday.
Too tired to say too much other than Urbina is an intriguing, fascinating character and Old Macdonald looks like a fun course to play. Oh, and no, it isn’t a CB Macdonald replica course, but holes created in Macdonald’s style if he had been working on a piece of property on the West Coast of the U.S.
