looking to go on a golf trip for 40th birthday and get away from the kids.  debating between a few days at pebble or a few days at bandon.  if pebble, i would play pebble, spyglass and spanish bay, but would not likely stay at the resort.  if bandon, would play bandon dunes, pacific dunes and bandon trails.  without factoring the cost of the golf itself, what are people's opinion of the two options.  we would be going in early june, so weather should be awesome for both, not sure how that plays in to how busy either is though.

appreciate your comments.

Part of this would depend on availability. I would check both websites to see if there are tee times that would fit your schedule. I am going to Bandon in July, and we booked in June this past year.

Once in a lifetime trip?  Pebble.  If you go to Bandon, you might end up just making it a regular trip.

In 2010 in Golf Digest, Matt Ginella quoted David Fay, former executor director of the USGA, who said Bandon is  "the epicenter of golf on Planet Earth".   In 2011 in the same magazine, Fay said:

        "If someone gave me tee times at Pebble Beach, Cypress, Spyglass and one of the two courses at Monterey Peninsula Country Club versus the same deal at Bandon -- four courses in two days -- it's no contest: I'd take Bandon hands down, and I think I've seen just about everything there is to compare it to. I love everything about the place."

For me, since 2001 made eleven Bandon trips (once trip in June, the rest in December).  Since 2005 played Pebble Beach 3 times on three trips (& made three other Monterey trips to play some other local courses).

If you haven't been to either resort, like Edaw68 I'd pick Pebble Beach.  Both places are busy all the time.

Based purely on golf, I prefer Bandon.

I really want to get to Bandon sometime soon. But if I had to choose for a one time trip, it’s Pebble every time.

This.

For a once in a life time trip IMHO it must be a combination of the accommodations and food as well as the golf.

By that criteria it is Pebble Beach.

No way the accommodations and food in Bandon comes close to Pebble.

Keiser is a genius being able to charge top rates for the accommodations at Bandon!

Funnily enough, by the end of 2018, that will be the number of times I've been to each ;)

OP, Bandon, Bandon, Bandon.

There are nice hotels and restaurants across the US you can stay at wherever and whenever you want.
There is no public golf in the US comparable to that on offer in Oregon.
Bandon has 3 tremendous proper links courses and a 4th that is an equal of those 3.
Pebble has Pebble, which is awesome, and then 2 other overrated/overpriced nice courses, but nothing special.

As noted above though, if you are looking for this June, I bet the ship has sailed already for Bandon and with Pebble if you wait until July you should be able to take advantage of their annual 'Summer Specials', to easily play, without having to stay.

If you're a good player who wants challenging golf - Bandon every time.

If you think the bar, restaurants, and local shopping is more important - Pebble.

Personally, the only reason I'd ever go back to Pebble is if my wife was going with me.

Since it appears that your wife may be with you, other major factors to consider - you have to walk when playing at Bandon - and there isn't a lot of entertainment for non-golfers at Bandon. Your wife would love Carmel shops, restaurants, and small hotels.

On 2 trips to Bandon, I've only seen 1 female golfer. Indeed, it's difficult to even buy a gift for my wife, as the pro shops have little female gear. One of the assistant pros told me that only "10% of our visitors are women."

Curious, so quick question.

For those who strongly favor Bandon, if PB was ever a bucket list destination, have you played it?  Reason I ask is while Ive never played Bandon, I strongly want to based mainly on what Iíve read here. But it was never a bucket list type place until reading the accolades here.  PB always was.

PB to me, truly is a 100% bucket list type course. I love seeing it on television every January (or February, donít remember exactly), as they show each hole, remembering my shots there. It truly sounds like BD is nervana for golfers. But in all honesty, if I never get there, I wonít feel the same as if Iíd never made it to PB. I donít have an overwhelming desire to go back to PB, but I sure am glad I was able to get there once.

The point of my ramble. Knowing both places, and if you were choosing a one time, memory making trip for someone else, would you still choose BD?

For me PB is all glitter, but no where near the level of golf courses you find at Bandon, despite what golf magazine ratings claim.(We know those ratings can be bought!)

Without wind, PB is pretty benign, and the ocean holes are the whole story. Bandon has more ocean holes + superior design on all their courses.

No one can take up that remit unless they know the someone else.
If someone else wants to relive a round of golf on tele once a year and has buckets - or they are only go to play a single round on a single course and never ever return to either spot - then yes Pebble.
If someone else wants a 4 day trip playing as fun a public access golf as they can in North America, then yes Bandon.

I don't know if I've played anywhere that has a 5 hole stretch that can surpass 6-10 at Pebble and on a 1:1 comparison Pebble can easily be someone's preferred course to one in Oregon; however, taken on the whole the PB Resort courses could have more than just the Bandon Resort courses above them.

Champagne & lobster = Pebble

Microbrew & meatloaf (literally) = Bandon

Are you going for the golf or to get away? Bandon is all about the golf. You will probably end up golfing 10 hours a day (range time + 36 holes), add in Shortyís, Preserve, and Punchbowl and Bandon is purely about golf. If you go as a single you will get paired with some fun groups with similar interests. You wonít feel bad about going to bed at 10:30 to rest up for the next day.

Pebble you will play 18 and be done with golf. You will head into town for some meals and take in everything. You wonít meet people and have great conversations, people will more keep to themselves.

Itís hard to say for someone else but for me I want to golf and golf as much as possible. Iíd do Bandon. For a 1st timer, where it sounds like 3 days, I would do 2 @Bandon, 1 @ Pacific, 1 OM, 1 Trails. For me I would do 2 at Trails, which is my favorite course iíve ever played, not the best but my favorite.

i think a trip to Bandon is due. I have been there but didn't play. Drove from Reno, NV to Vancouver over a week... touring. Stopped at Bandon and walked a few holes. I get it. It's really about golf.  Pebble is just majestically beautiful and that 18th has some serious magnet but too much glitter. I will leave that to the rich business men who fly in from all over the planet. No problem.

Having read this thread and never played Bandon, makes it a "must do" destination whenever I get back out in that direction. And Mallrat, thank you for your insight.

But to answer the OP's question, I'll have to go with Pebble. Just because it's Pebble.

Bandon! I actually loved the accommodations, it was more like a dorm room. But nice and literally walked out 20 feet for coffee , shuttles to and from anywhere. I had read food was bad, I thought it was fantastic. A beer at pebble will cost you 11 bucks, Bandon 6. When on golf trip with the guys I like pulled pork and beer or meatloaf with some red wine opposed to going to Roys and dropping 150 apiece. But to each their own. If it was a one day play at any course I would choose PB, but a 3 to 4 day drip easily Bandon. Much cheaper if you can go early spring or late fall also. I will make Filets and Cabernet at home all the time, but when I was at Bandon I was good one night with a Quesadilla and beer with cigars at the Bunker Bar. I went to Bandon end of August and already want to go back. most of my buddies think its an every other year or 5 year trip.

Bandon is something you can ALWAYS do easier than pebble beach

As a 50+ year old with some disposable income I prefer the overall vibe at pebble beach. Bandon is incredible, but for me any one else I have drug to the peninsula, PB is an out of body experience.

For those who have played the Pebble courses and have stayed at the resort, how much do you think that added to the experience?  The OP states that he won't stay at the resort.  To me, that diminishes the champagne and cavier appeal of Pebble.  Monterey would make a more well rounded vacation overall, but less of a golf vacation.

I also think Pebble can be done later in life since there are carts (which diminish the golf experience imo).  Bandon is walking only which requires at least some fitness and also adds to the majestic nature of the entire resort.

I'm in the camp of Bandon, Bandon, Bandon, until I get too old, and then it'll be Pebble Pebble Pebble.

BANDON DUNES!!!! Its not even close. Pacific Dunes is better than pebble beach and Spyglass would be the 8th best course on Bandon's property.

depends...are you going for the golf or are you going so you can tell others where you went and other non-golf factors?

nobody i went with in my group of ~24 a couple years ago, who had also been to pebble, said pebble was better. if you're doing something like pebble/cypress/Cal club/SFGC....then ok....i'll listen to your argument.

Bandon is for golf. Pebble is for corporate nonsense.
