This view shows the meadow flowers including, a nice patch of native iris, surrounding the green of the uphill par 5, 16th hole of the Bandon Trails Course of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon. The well regarded par 3, 17th hole can be seen in the distance as well as the ocean horizon beyond. Local knowledge of the green’s contours is important to avoid approach shots diving to the left into a series of small bunkers after thinking a shot played to the middle of the green would end up safely. Bandon Trails is the third course of the acclaimed Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. The course opened in 2005. Architect, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.
