The Bandon Dunes course opened in May of 1999 and immediately was recognized as one of the best in the United States.

Owner Michael Keiser of Chicago, who earned a fortune selling greeting cards made of recycled paper, invested some $15 million and hired obscure 27-year-old Scottish architect David McLay Kidd. Though not a household name, Kidd produced a course good enough to be named best new public course of 1999 by Golf Digest. It is also currently one of a select few to earn 5-star status from Golf Digest's Places to Play.

Seven holes, including No. 16 (shown here) run along the edge of the bluff, some 100 feet about the Pacific Ocean.
