A view of the Pacific Ocean surf beyond the par 3, 10th hole of the Bandon Preserve viewed from a backdrop dune behind the green. The soft light before sunrise creates an ethereal view of the course. The 9th green can be seen in the distance with Cut Creek to the north and the 16th green and 17th tee of the Bandon Dunes course is in the first light of day on the north side of Cut Creek. Bandon Preserve is the fifth course of the acclaimed Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon. The course opened in 2012. Architects – Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw with assistance by David Zinkand.
