Review for Bandon Dunes (Old Macdonald)

Reviewer Score:


This is the best course at Bandon in my view. One of the most enjoyable courses i have been lucky enough to play (Royal County Down would be the only course that i would recall enjoying more). Of the Bandon courses Old Mac is comfortably the best condition and the purest of of the links courses there. The green 'complexes' are the most interesting and challenging of any course i have ever played. In my view the order of enjoyment of courses at Bandon is 1) Old Mac, 2) Trails - which i think has a number of similarities to Pine Valley, but i actually enjoyed Trails more, 3) Pacific Dunes - great course but not as interesting or original as Old Mac, 4) Bandon - some great holes, but less memorable than the other courses. I was somewhat surprised by the condition of the greens at Pacific and Bandon Dunes in early August when we played were significantly worse than the other 2 courses.,
