The par 5 3rd hole of the Pacific Dunes Course of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon. This is the first grand view of the course from the elevated tee with the Pacific Ocean on the horizon. This hole is framed on the right side of the fescue fairway with blooming gorse. The fairway is wide but there is one deep green side and several deep fairway bunkers that come into play when approaching the elevated green. The views from the green are the first closeup views of the ocean. The course opened in 2001, two years after the original Bandon Dunes Course. Architect, Tom Doak, Renaissance Design.
