RECAP: 2017 Bandon Dunes Cup


Early May kicked off our 4th Annual Bandon Dunes Cup! 62, two-man teams from all over the world traveled to the south coast of Oregon to put their competitive golf skills to the test. Mother nature brought great links conditions and the courses were fast, firm and fierce. The format changes for each round between fourball, foursomes, a scramble and then finishes off the last round with fourball again. The mix of formats always keeps the competitors on their toes!

Within the full field, 9 groups had played in the Bandon Dunes Cup since the first year in 2014. Certainly, groups to watch out for next year. The scores were impressive, highlighted by Theo Wyatt's (pictured below) ace on the Par-4, 14th at Bandon Trails! Talk about skins money! 

Big thanks to our staff who put in long hours to run the championship flawlessly, our sponsors, Peter Millar, Under Armour, and PRG as well as all the Bandonistas who competed. Congratulations to all of our flight winners and the team of James Landi/David LeVan (pictured above) for taking home the overall title with a gross score of -4, 281.

Looper Cup 2016


The 2nd Annual Looper Cup has come to a close. If you followed last year's Looper Cup, you'd know that Pine Valley squared off against Bandon Dunes in a fun yet competitive match. In an effort to celebrate the successes of these decorated caddie programs we hosted a friendly competition and this year we added Pebble Beach into the mix. Four teams squared off: a Bandon Dunes team, Pine Valley team, Pacific Dunes team and the newly added Pebble Beach team. Each player had to qualify for a spot on their squads. 

Conditions this year were a little up and down, but smiles were ear to ear.

As the last round on Pacific Dunes came to a close, the players shuffled up to Pacific Grill for some grub and to talk about how the event played out. Pacific Dunes No. 18:

While gathering to take the group photo, the clouds broke and lit up the Punchbowl with a fantastic golden light. A wonderful ending that left us all looking forward to next year. In the end, the Bandon team finished on top, but it was the new friendships forged in the spirit of the game that everyone will recall. These loopers had a fun and competitive match and we hope to see them again soon!
