Bandon Dunes was created for one purpose, the pure enjoyment of golf. In order to help you prepare, we offer multiple practice locations that allow you to perfect every shot required on our six links courses.
The central Practice Center is located between Pacific Dunes and Old Macdonald on Round Lake Road. Each course has a putting green near their 1st tee and we recommend putting before your round at each of the course locations. If you are playing the Sheep Ranch, there is also a driving range where you can hit full shots prior to your round of golf.
All of the resort’s practice facilities are complimentary to resort guests staying or playing golf on one of our six courses. If you live locally or are just passing by the resort on your travels along Highway 101, you can still use our practice facilities by purchasing a day guest pass.
Day Guest Pass - $10
*Can be purchased at any of our golf shops.

Given the announcement of our new short course at Bandon Dunes using Shorty’s name, there was a need to a new moniker for the resort’s original short course, designed by David Mclay Kidd in 2000. With that in mind, we are excited to honor Charlotte by using her name for this special place at Bandon. The “Charlotte's” Par-3 course will continue to be complimentary for guests and our home to grow the game of golf on the Southern Oregon Coast. Our local junior programs are busier than ever, and we are exploring creative ways for the course to help serve our growing Evan’s Scholar program.
Many guests, community members, and junior golfers have loved it for years and we plan to build on that passion while honoring everything Charlotte Dow's hospitality has embodied.
Hours of Operations
Normal Operation Hours: Open Thursday through
Sunday from 2 PM until the Practice Center closes.
With over three miles of oceanfront property, getting from one side of the resort to the other takes time. For those playing at the Sheep Ranch we recommend heading straight over to the driving range located just north of the Sheep Ranch clubhouse. Exploring this quiet honey hole can be one of the more spiritual searches you take while also looking for your swing.
