Bandon Dunes Golf Resort - Bandon, OR, US
About Bandon Dunes
The game of golf was born on rugged, wind-swept land like this. Where every hole, every hazard, and every shot is defined by nature's infinite presence. True links courses are rare, with only about 160 on the entire planet.
At Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, you'll find five distinctly different courses built on a beautiful stretch of sand dunes perched 100 feet above the Pacific Ocean. Bandon Dunes and Pacific Dunes feature a dozen holes that run along the bluff overlooking 2.3 miles of sweeping, undisturbed shoreline. Bandon Trails begins on a massive dune, works its way through open meadows and upland forest, and then finishes in the dunes. Old Macdonald moves through dune to ocean revealing breathtaking views throughout. The courses here weren't built as much as discovered. Among the coastal forest, dunes and gorse, lie golf holes that yield fresh rewards each time they're played.
Accommodations provide a refuge of relative seclusion. Chrome Lake rooms offer double king and two-room lofts. Lily Pond rooms offer two queen beds, while the Lodge offers single rooms and three suites, many with dramatic golf course views. Our Grove Cottages are designed specifically for a foursome of golfers, with four private rooms and a shared parlor and patio. The Inn at Bandon Dunes provides single king and double queen beds just a short walk from the Lodge.
Located on the property are full service restaurants, lounges, golf shops, hot tub, sauna, exercise room and locker rooms. A 30-acre practice center allows you to hone every shot required at Bandon Dunes and features a one-acre practice putting green and bunker practice area.
Cabot Links - Nova Scotia, CA
About Cabot Links
Cabot Links features 36 holes of exhilarating links golf and one of the best resort experiences in the country. With two acclaimed World Top 100 courses, 72 rooms of award-winning accommodation at Cabot Links Lodge, fourteen upscale Golf Villas and exquisite dining in three on-site restaurants, Cabot is designed to excite and inspire at every turn.
Located on over a mile of sandy beach along the coast of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Cabot Links is Canada’s first and only authentic links golf resort. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the picturesque town of Inverness, the Cabot Links course represents a dramatic departure from the typical golf excursion. With six holes playing directly alongside the water and every hole offering an ocean view, Cabot Links is where traditional linksland golf comes to life against the spectacular Nova Scotia landscape.
The Cabot Cliffs course, designed by the decorated team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, is the newest addition to Cabot. Exquisitely carved out of the breathtaking Cape Breton landscape, with postcard worthy panoramas vying for your attention and every hole calling out to the sea, this is linksland golf at its best. Built by dreamers, for dreamers. The official Grand Opening is slated for June of 2016 but with preview play in 2015 it has already proven it provides an incredible golf experience, through coastal dunes and high atop the ocean-side cliffs. Cabot Cliffs made its debut in the Golf Digest World Top 100 Courses at #19.
