Additional Details:

  • Caddies/Carts:  All courses at Bandon Dunes are walking courses.  Golf carts are not allowed except for documented medical conditions. 
    All golf carts will be operated by a caddie and the caddie fee will be incurred by the player.  Per the GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour rule-book,
    Caddies provided by the courses are allowed during the tournament rounds.  This is optional to each player and is not included in the
    registration fee.  If you would like to reserve a caddie for your tournament rounds, please call the Caddie Services Department at
    541-347-5875.  The caddie fee is listed as $100 per round.  A limited number of pull carts are available on a first come, first served basis
    for a $5 fee.
  •  Travel:   Air transportation is not arranged or provided and is not included in the tournament registration fee.  Ground transportation
    is not arranged or provided and is not included in the tournament registration fee.  On-site shuttle services are complimentary within
    the resort.  
    Nearest airports:   North Bend Airport - 30 miles north of Bandon with flights connecting from San Francisco or Portland
    via United Airlines/Sky West Airlines.  Eugene Airport - 2 hour drive to Bandon.

  • Lodging:  Bandon Dunes Resort was built and is operated with a golf-first mentality.  The number of cottages & cabins built is limited
    and dwarfs in comparison to the number of golfers and tee times available each day across their 5 courses.  Additionally, Bandon Dunes
    Resort is located in a secluded area of Oregon that offers very little in terms of alternative lodging anywhere within a two hour drive of
    the resort.  As such, this tournament offering includes lodging on-site but requires double occupancy to ensure a bed for everyone. 
    This means that golfers will be sharing a cottage with another golfer.  Requests will be honored for those registered and paid that want
    to room together.
  • Additional lodging and course tee times for dates before and after April 13-15, are available by contacting Bandon Dunes Resort for
    pricing and reservations
