Bandon Dunes was created for one purpose, the pure enjoyment of golf. In order to help you prepare, we offer a practice facility that allows you to perfect every shot required on our five courses.
Practice Center is approximately 50 acres.
Clubhouse with complimentary coffee and tea.
Two full practice ranges -- one hitting north and one hitting south.
A one-acre practice green.
Two short game practice areas for chip, pitch, bunker and bump-and-run shots.
Shorty’s, a 9-hole par three practice course designed by David McLay Kidd, is named after the late caretaker and self-proclaimed "mayor, governor and sheriff" of Bandon Dunes, Shorty Dow. Shorty's is open four afternoons per week, Thursday through Sunday, from 2pm until the Practice Center closes. It includes a glass-enclosed building with beverages and TV. Our staff of PGA Professionals is available for a wide range of instruction. Clinics and academies also are available. Call 888-345-6008 for reservations, or click here for more info.
