Sat: Trails/Bandon Dunes
Sun: Pac Dunes/Pac Dunes

Got hooked up with some great groups too.

Of course I see I'm a day late with my advice, but if you drove from Seattle to Roseburg (my hometown) and cut over to Bandon on Highway 42, you're looking at 6.5-7 hours.

I got paired with some really great folks and ended up playing multiple rounds with the same people. I wouldn't hesitate to go again as a single. As for the courses, I still love Pac Dunes the most, then it's really close between Bandon Dunes and Trails. Trails is just a lot of fun with some great risk/reward decisions (drove the green on 8, then 3 putted for par, argh).
This is such an amazing place, I feel really lucky to be within (albeit long) driving distance.

Not if you have a good road map

I thought Bandon Trails was closed for a while? I'm going at the end of March and I was told that it will be re-opening shortly before my visit. Has it re-opened way early, or has it not closed yet?

Where do you rank Old Mac? It is my 2nd favorite after Bandon....
Did you play the new Preserve? Played it twice last weekend, the more wind, the more fun....
I rank Old Mac fourth. Didn't play preserve. I might change my vote after playing old Mac again, but it didn't leap out to me like the others did
