Remembering Rob McVicker


Those we lose don’t leave. They stand alongside us not seen but felt. Strengthening the family, improving each and every one of us, all the while reminding the importance of the moment at hand.

Rob McVicker, 1st Assistant at Bandon Dunes, was sadly taken from us far too early on Saturday, February 25th. As an integral Bandon family member since 2010 and soon to become the next Head Golf Professional at Old Macdonald, Rob's passing has hit the Bandon Dunes family hard.

How will he be remembered? Those of us who worked with him loved his passion for sharing the Bandon experience and always offering a helping hand. It was his love of the game and the genuine compassion he shared that brings us all together. His buttery draw and fiery competitive nature will be dearly missed. As well as the fantasy football discussions and unwavering love for Tar Heel basketball. The list of the ways we will miss Rob goes on and on, and we didn’t even mention the cheese pizza.

Rest in peace Rob. You will be greatly missed, but we know you’re there standing alongside us.

His reception is Sunday, March 12th from 2pm-4pm in the Garden Room, please RSVP to Director of Golf, Jeff Simonds if you plan on attending:
