Bandon Crossings Golf Course
Some land is made for golf. Bandon is one of those places and Bandon Crossings offers both incredible golf and great value. Here you can enjoy a highly conditioned course and relax in a cart. Majestic coastal trees, classically sculpted bunkers and uneven terrain provide the main challenge says GOLF Magazine, who also named it an Affordable Alternative to Bandon Trails. It has received national acclaim and is becoming one of the Must-Play courses in Oregon. Slightly inland, it is sheltered from direct coastal winds, with mild temperatures all summer, and firm, well drained play all winter. A layout sculpted first by nature, Bandon Crossings offers more than just 18 holes it's home to 18 Unique Experiences. There are holes unlike any others. The natural flow of ancient sand dunes dictate the course's routing, which is highlighted by old corrals that show evidence of the property's former life as a sheep ranch. Several holes stay true to the name 'Crossings' as they play over creeks or narrow canyons, and along with variety come ample risk/reward opportunities to create an exciting round. Enjoy a superb round of golf in a beautiful environment. Ride in the comfort of a golf cart. Make use of the practice area, take a lesson from one of the pros, or attend a 2 day golf school. Don't miss the chance to play Bandon Crossings.
