Every June, 90 courageous guests set out on an epic journey that tests the mind, body, and swings of each player brave enough to attempt it. The format of the Bandon Solstice is simple. Complete each of our 18-hole golf courses... in a SINGLE DAY! There is no one collecting scorecards or tallying up skins. Success is measured by completion and some are even willing to venture out for a Bandon Preserve round after the first 72-holes have been finished.
This year we had a perfect 66-degree day for the event. It doesn't get much better than that to keep you feeling good during a marathon walk. Just ask our Director of Outside Happiness, Shoe!
OK breakfast at 4:30 then 90 players tee it up for 72+ holes today. Wishing all a very rewarding day. Yesterday a 9. @BandonDunesGolf— Shoe (@GolfShoeBandon) June 21, 2016
Upon completing the fourth round, each guest was greeted by one of our Head Golf Professionals and given a crisp $100 bill as a thank you for playing each of our courses in one day.
Thanks to all guests and staff for making the 2016 Bandon Solstice event another great one for the memory books! To see more photos from the event, click our Flickr gallery below (or for mobile users simply click here to be taken to the Flickr album).
