Came together pretty organically actually. Me and my core golf friends from university are all turning 30 this year and I suggested a big golf trip to commemorate it. Two of us are leaving from Toronto, 1 from NYC and the 4th is flying in from Houston.
The two of us in Toronto are flying to Eugene and making the 2.5hr drive on a Friday in April with a rental car, and will have time for the range and putting Friday after arriving in Bandon. It’s honestly not that bad on paper getting there. Not as easy as flying to Florida obviously, but more straightforward than Scotland golf for sure.
We’re booked in to play 36 each day for 3 days, and then possibly 18 on the travel day home, flying on the redeye Tuesday night. 2 rounds at Bandon Dunes and Pacific, 1 round each at Old Macdonald and Trails
Flight was only $350, and I have budgeted $2200 CAD (after Fx) per person to cover golf, food, car, accommodations onsite and some Bandon memorabilia. Not cheap, but it’s not something you do every year.
I started the booking process back in November, and would highly suggest planning it at least 6-months in advance as the onsite rooms book up incredibly far in advance. As well, would not suggest staying in an AirBnb because you lose out on preferential tee-times if you stay off the course.
Should be an interesting few days, fingers crossed for reasonable weather.
