A wide-angle view of the Par 3, 2nd hole of the Bandon Preserve course from the top elevated tee with an ominous view of Cut Creek on the right and a tantalizing view of the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The upper left of the green is the double teeing ground for the 3rd and 12th holes. This is the first time the player understands that great views may lay ahead. The larger bunker shown is the deepest on the course and catches tee shots all too frequently. This is the longest hole at 150 yards from the back tee and can seem shorter from the greatly elevated tee. Beware of a pushed or blocked shot that can easily end up in the Cut Creek canyon to the right. 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.
