5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Bandon Dunes Golf Resort (Pacific Dunes course): Pacific Dunes is a must for golfers who enjoy the natural rugged splendour of "pure links golf". Here the clock is turned back to before the days of sharp-edged sod-faced bunkers, which are now the norm on Britain and Ireland's top links courses. Pacific Dunes takes you to an era when the beauty of a golf course was embodied in its coastal setting, rustic appearance and rough-hewn features.

From first to last on Pacific Dunes, large irregular-looking bunkers and towering dunes create a high intimidation factor from the tee and around the greens. The hazards (all of the sand variety) resemble natural "scrapes" and "excavations", rather than smooth-lined creations. Flanked by all this natural bunkering, the wide rolling fairways are routed as they were found, creating a timeless golfing landscape. The deceptively fast-paced greens and large slick green surrounds were also mapped onto the terrain's natural contours, without conforming to any specific size or shape.

On this out-and-back layout, one of the show stealers is the short par-3 11th. Hugging the shoreline, as does the par-4 4th and par-4 13th, this wee-demon of a hole, with its cavernous front bunker, is a paragon of rugged beauty. The huge exposed dune at the par-4 13th creates another memorable hole on this fabulous "retro" links course.

If you are not overlooking the ocean, you are probably playing Pacific Dunes' closing four-hole stretch. Here the views are onto another Bandon sibling, the Old Macdonald course. When the wind blows, as it has a habit of doing, don't forget the auld Scottish maxim, "when it's breezy, swing eezy!"

Stay&Play at Bandon Dunes: onsite accommodation is available at Bandon Dunes in a variety of luxury lodges, inns and cottages (see Where2Stay section below).
