August 9th, 2021 – Since the opening of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw’s highly touted Sheep Ranch in June 2020, our team has been working hard to create new lodging and dining experiences and refine existing experiences at Bandon Dunes. Guests visiting for the first time in over a year will notice a number of updates around the property that we are very excited to share with you. Read below to learn all about what’s new at Bandon Dunes!
ROUND LAKE LODGES
We’re happy to announce the newest addition to the resort, 24 Round Lake Lodge rooms. Located just south of the Lily Pond Cottages, the Round Lake rooms are located in a serene setting, tucked between the coastal forest that Bandon Trails plays through and Round Lake itself. Round Lake includes 16 spacious double queen rooms and 8 single king bedrooms, our largest king rooms on property. Each room includes local Oregon crafted furniture and woodwork, a large fireplace, refrigerator, plenty of closet space, and locally inspired artwork. Rooms include spacious bathrooms with a large double vanity and private changing rooms, and a spacious shower with double-head showers. With a modern twist on our minimalist vibe, each room is designed to make you feel right at home with the Bandon experience. All guest rooms have incredible views of the serene setting – Round Lake, the surrounding forest, and Bandon Trails’ 6th and 7th holes.
THE FORGE STEAKHOUSE
Formerly the Gallery and located just off the lobby in The Lodge, The Forge is our newest evening dining experience complemented by an amazing view of the original Bandon Dunes course. Why The Forge? Simply put, you can expect a quality modern steakhouse experience while forging memories that are meant to last. The menu focuses on Pacific Northwest beef, pork, and lamb, accompanied by seafood from around the globe and enhanced with locally sourced produce. Should you want some fresh air, the Adirondacks and outdoor seating on the patio are a wonderful spot for reflection of a trip worth reliving. Our award-winning wine list showcases a variety of Oregon’s regions along with well-known California vineyards and many Old-World wines.
LILY POND ROOMS
The Main Lodge showcased the first rooms built back in 1999. As Pacific Dunes began to take shape prior to its opening in 2001, the Lily Pond rooms prepared the resort for a new wave of eager links golfers. Their convenient location, a short walk to Bandon Dunes as well as Bandon Trails, has always made them a fan favorite, but with the recent renovations completed in the summer of 2020 they’re more popular than ever!
SHEEP RANCH CLUBHOUSE
During the construction phase, Coore surveyed the site for the clubhouse and told co-founder Phil Friedmann that the location warranted an incredible venue showcasing its impressive panoramic view. Fast forward to opening day and Coore gave his stamp of approval. Locally sourced Port Orford cedar woodwork defines the space, large windows throughout the building provide an abundance of natural light, and an outdoor patio with a circular fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs creates the perfect scene for enjoying a casual bite while you watch others brave the course.
SHEEP RANCH PRACTICE CENTER
With over three miles of oceanfront property, getting from one side of the resort to the other takes time. How would guests want to warm up for an early morning round at the Sheep Ranch when it is so far removed from the rest of the property? Exploring this quiet honey hole can be one of the more spiritual searches you take while also looking for your swing.
In addition to the newly renovated Sauna and Hot Tub Spa, there is all new equipment within the Fitness Center on the lower level of The Lodge. New free weights, universal weight machines, cardio machines, and mats for stretching are available for those looking to burn a couple of extra calories between rounds. Adjacent to the workout area is the new and improved Hot Tub Spa and Sauna, perfect for warming up in the morning or relaxing after a round.
