The main event here at Bandon Dunes is golfing. The golf resort has a strict proper golf attire policy anytime you are on the golf course. Proper golf pants
, golf shoes
, and a golf shirt
are the basics and a requirement. It is your choice, but a recommendation is to bring a nice pair of golf gloves
and perhaps a sun hat
to protect your head and shoulders from the sun.
Hiking: There are many hiking trails on the property of Bandon Dunes and even around the property as well. These are not very hard trails, and they aren’t very long either, but a good pair of walking shoes are definitely needed. Because these trails are along the ocean, it does tend to get windy, even in the summertime, so pack a lightweight windbreaker along during your hikes.
Sightseeing: Bandon Dunes borders the coast, and much of the hiking trails follow the ocean, where you can commonly see many seabirds and seals. You can even drive just a few minutes to visit a lighthouse where it’s a popular spot for whale watching. A good pair of binoculars will come in so handy, especially if you are lucky enough to catch the parade of whales.
Dining: Bandon Dunes has many wonderful restaurants on-site, some of which you could consider fine dining, in which dressing for the occasion is a must! Pack a nice dress (if you’re a lady) and a casual tux (for the gentlemen) to take a break and have a romantic evening. You don’t have to go all out, but dressing up a little bit is always a treat.
