Last sunlight on the short par 3 14th hole of the Pacific Dunes Course of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Bandon, Oregon. This hole may be short but the tee shot is perilous. The green is crowned and anything less than a precise shot will run out to the left or right. The danger to the right looking south is a severe slope almost down to the 13th fairway if the shot is short. If the shot is green high there is a deep bunker that is also problematic. A shot to the left can find several bunkers or a low depression if the shot is short of the bunkers. 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.
