View of the short par 4 8th hole of the Bandon Dunes Course of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon. This view was taken from the 7th green area to get high enough to see the Pacific Ocean in the Background. The horizontal band of deep bunkers must be cleared to get a short approach to the green. Playing to the left side of the fairway eliminates the bunker carry but makes the hole longer. 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.
