The Preserve at Bandon Dunes: Sneak peek
October 23, 2011
Like many holes at The Preserve, links-style bunkers protect the first hole. Looking wind-blown and unkempt, the hazards are one of the significant design features of the 13-hole course. At 138 yards from the back tee, the first hole is a bit down hill and will play a little shorter than its yardage, but with the prevailing wind in your face, the club selection to a large angular green is critical.
