Bandon Winter/Spring Reviews - When did you stop raining so much Oregon?

Recommended Posts

Well that's trip #7 in the books and again we lucked out on the weather, managing to get in 7.5 out of a maximum 8 possible rounds played in 5 days, with 36 holes on 3 days:

Bandon x 2.5, Old Mac x 2, Pacific x 2, Trails x 1

After this trip my faves order has changed slightly too, now: Bandon, Trails, Old Mac, Pacific.

 

Golfing highlights:

- Eagle on Bandon #3 and birdie on Old Mac #16. Eagles are cool, but the solid drive, 'perfect' 24*h, 6' up-hiller birdie, slightly shades the drive/3W/25' eagle.

- Playing Bandon #17 1 under for the trip and finding out yes the ravine is in play, after piping one right down the middle, well past where the ravine starts.

- Getting to Pacific #18 in reg both rounds for the first time ever; perennially a mess up hole.

- Winning 18 twice (Pac/OM) to halve matches I was 1 down in.

- Hitting some good iron and wedge shots - after hitting zero iron and only a couple good wedge shots last year - which led to lots of no stress pars on some tough holes.

- Continuing to drive the ball well. TBH they are all pretty easy driving courses that suit my eye, but it is nice to almost always be in position off the tee.

 

Golfing lowlights:

- Making Pacific #3 my new 3rd shot screw up hole: both rounds >40yds to flag, both rounds a bogey after slapping it around the green for two extra shots.

- Continuing to make an oceanic donation on Bandon #6 each trip.

- Sloppy long putting on Trails #14 & #16, that put a dent in what was otherwise a very solid round.

- Not birdying Bandon #16, after being in front of the green twice off the tee.

 

Gear highlights:

- Wilson FG Tour V4 3I driving iron: definitely a luxury club, but it worked a charm on Old Mac #7, #13 both rounds.

- Mizuno JPX 900 driver: got it the Thurs before Bandon, played 1 round before the trip with it, hit a dozen balls on the range when we got there, and used it every round. I really, really like it.

 

Gear lowlights:

- Putting with rain gloves on. I blame that for having a no birdie Thursday ;)

 

Overall stay highlights:

- The weather! It looked awful, but we got lucky. Warm and no rain/next to no rain for 3 days. 1 days of showers and dense fog. Last day huuuuuugely windy for 5 fun holes and then 4 truly awful holes, before we packed it in and headed to the airport. Had we skipped teeing off Sunday morning, we'd have had it as a Top 2 weather trip, but that knocked it to 3rd.

- Bandon Brewery. The redone pizza joint downtown makes for a nice respite from the resort.

- Staying in Florence the night before we started playing: Old Town hotel, Steak Night at Beachcombers Pub, breakfast at the Little Brown Hen Cafe, Dutch Bros coffee to fuel the drive down.

- Getting paired up for a few rounds with really cool people. And getting good-natured ribbing for my Canadian politeness, amongst other things.

 

Overall stay lowlights:

- Getting grief for asking for a late checkout. First time we've ever asked, after bumping up against late checkouts when we've checked in at least 3 times, including this trip. Obviously they need their time to get things ready for the next guests, but there's a nice way to say it.

- More yahoos than usual. Seemed more pissed up, obnoxious muppets this time. The demographics lean that way, but I do feel bad for families that want to play the Punchbowl or have breakfast without the effing and blinding.

- The flights back. Both of us ended up having 20+ hour return trips due to delays, plane troubles. After living in NorCal and now having to fly there from Texas, I am starting to understand why people complain.

Good report. How long is the drive from Florence to the resort? I usually split my drive up so I stay a few hours away from Bandon the night before an am looking for other stuff to do on the way.

^Ya it's between 1hr 15min and 1hr 30min, depending on getting stuck behind RVs and whether or not it looks like there are too many cops out.

 

And I forgot to mention, collectively the courses were in as good a nick as I can remember.

Old Mac's greens were so true and didn't have the sandiness they sometimes get, pacey for Nov too and the turf overall from the teeboxes to the fairways was really consistent. As long as divots were avoided (not so easy on #3) of course.

 

Pac had the 2nd quickest greens and it was only in our replay afternoon round, when the Poa shot up, that they impacted the roll at all.

 

Bandon's were the slowest of the week, but again they ran true enough, as did Trails. Of course with all that, we couldn't blame missed birdie putts on anything but the putting stroke (and rain gloves ;)) this year.

Have been the last two Thanksgivings weekends; had glorious and awful weather but that's obv part of the deal. Had amazing weather my one January trip.

 

Going the first week of November this year; hoping to get some great late-fall weather - but excited regardless. Short trip; 3 days on property but I'll be able to play all 5 courses and really like my schedule (PD, Preserve, OM, BD, PD, BT). Staying at Chrome Lake which is new to me (Lilly Pond and the Inn on all my previous trips).

 

6 week countdown begins.

 

How was it 007? Fitting 3 in a Chrome Loft in Jan/Feb. Haven't found anything about a kitchenette area in those rooms (assuming they want you to spring for the cabins), but anything in the way of a fridge to store some after round drinks?

Take a look at the photos of the loft on the Bandon website, they do a good job of showing everything. 3 people in it is no prob - two of us stayed in one last year and had the other two guys over for drinks and cards - just means doubling up on one of the bathrooms. No kitchenette, but a decent fridge by the tele.

Florence normally takes me 1:45 with a stop to well it rhymes with tee but starts with a p. I stop in Florence every trip whether to play Sandpines (which we are doing in March) or just a night at the casino and a cheap room (2 times ago they had a deal that if you signed up for a players card rooms were $54, just had to sign up).

Ended up staying at the lodge - but all the rooms I’ve been in have had fridge and ice buckets. You should be fine.

A successful trip to Vegas helped fund this latest acquisition. These are much more comfortable than my version 1 Bandons. I also always had issues with water running down the back of my right shoe because my pant leg would get caught on the heel tab leaving a gap.

Like most Nike's these still run small. The upper with the boa system is sweet. It does a great job forming to your foot. I'd say the upper is softer and will mold better to any foot shape than previous models holding your foot in place. The tip of the toe box is narrow, which is another reason to go larger so your toes aren't quite to the tip. The shoe feels softer and more flexible than the previous models, but still with good lateral support. This may be because you seem to sink down into the sole putting you low to the ground, which I think is a good thing.

 

I'm a big fan of the last two models using a higher upper to keep water from running into them if your pants ride up.

 

Definitely buy from a place that allows returns though.

I tried a pair at GG, and the plastic thingy that tightens the laces was in a really bad spot for my foot. It was hurting just walking around the store, so I'll have to stick with my Adidas Puremotions from about 5 years ago.

 

I just bought the last two pair in my size that are left on the planet, I think. Really cheap now, though...

Well the trip last week was epic.

 

Unbelievable weather, not just for December but for anytime of year. Sunny, no significant wind and highs in the upper 50s.

This high pressure system that's been camped over the west coast has given us awesome golf weather. I've been tempted to take advantage of the discounts offered this time of year at the Pebble Beach Resorts, usually because the weather is so unpredictable. Give them a call and see what open and hit and run it like Dpark!

Awesome stuff Dpark! :)

Man I miss the option for a last minute (+8hr drive) up from Oakland.

Love that blue sky and the waves don't even seem to be up too badly.

This high pressure system that's been camped over the west coast has given us awesome golf weather. I've been tempted to take advantage of the discounts offered this time of year at the Pebble Beach Resorts, usually because the weather is so unpredictable. Give them a call and see what open and hit and run it like Dpark!

 

Awesome stuff Dpark! :)

It really was the best weather I can remember in years at Bandon. I actually reached the 4th green on old Mac in 2 for the first time in years. Usually the winter wind is hurting making it a 3 shot hole, but with no wind it is actually reachable for me.

this might be a stupid question, but if I'm renting a car and driving down from Portland would it be useful to have some type of SUV or just whatever fits all of the gear?

Whatever fits all the gear. Paved highway the whole way. Worst hazard is curvy roads in some spots.

 

No off roading needed, I actually prefer a car with the windy roads.

Whatever holds your gear. Personally I prefer a car because I can leave my clubs in the trunk (assuming that I don't need to dry out my bag/clubs). SUVs generally have more room, but you have to take your clubs to your room every night. Too tempting for bad guys to bust out the windows and steal your stuff.
