What to Expect:  Six years before Bandon Dunes made the Oregon coast one of the most coveted golf destinations in the world, Rees Jones unveiled the well received Sandpines course. A combination of open links style golf and classic Pacific Northwest forest golf, Sandpines enjoys a windy location an hour north of Bandon and a mile inland from the coast. The holes through the forest feature some nice elevation changes while the links holes are designed with more intrigue for the golfer. The final three holes are what people will talk about the most after playing Sandpines; these signature holes wrap around a lake and offer the best par 3, 4, and 5 on the property. While Sandpines isn't in the same league as the collection of courses at Bandon Dunes Resort, it is a nice alternative for those on a budget.

Signature Hole:  5th - 187 Yard Par 3
