View from the upper tee of the par 5 3rd hole of the Bandon Dunes Course of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon. From the tees you get full horizon views of the Pacific Ocean. The hole is wide but the bunkers on the right side of the fairway can catch drives that go a little too far right. The hole is framed by yellow blooming gorse. The gorse blooms from December through April. The Bandon Dunes Course was the first course of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. The course opened in 1999. Course architect, David McLay Kidd, DMK Design.
