Brilliant course colors are lit by the golden light of a passing storm over the par 4 13th hole of the Pacific Dunes Course of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon. A little more than half way up the fairway the fairway dips down and many approach shots will backup from the green to the bottom of this depression. The Sheep Ranch and Cape Arago can be seen to the north. Many consider this to be the “signature” hole of the course but the architect would rather not use labels. This is this photographer’s 2nd favorite hole on the course to photograph. 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.
