Colorful Pacific Ocean sunset over the green and green side bunker of the par 3 11th hole of the Pacific Dunes Course of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon. This is a short par 3 but still requires great care to not drop a shot into the Pacific Ocean. This is this photographer’s favorite and most published and printed hole. An inspiring and most memorable golf experience is playing this hole at sunset when the wind has died down and the only sound to break the silence is the churning of the surf. The course has been ranked at the very top of the U.S. public course rankings since its opening in 2001. Architect, Tom Doak, Renaissance Design.
