A view from the right side dunes of the green of the long par 4 5th hole of the Bandon Dunes Course, Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon. This is the No. 1 handicap hole of the course with its narrowing fairway as you get closer to the green. The green is in a bowl surrounded by dunes and beach grass. Until recently the beach grass and fescue grasses on the dunes were being crowded out by overgrown gorse. The Pacific Ocean can be seen on the horizon to the west. 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.
