Best Golf Resorts in America

Bandon Dunes Golf Resort

There are only 247 “true links” courses on planet Earth, four of which are located in the USA. Three of those are found at the amazing Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.

The Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes, and Old Macdonald Courses are America’s answer to traditional seaside golf found most prominently in the UK & Ireland, and with 6 courses in total on-site; there’s much more to write home about here than a day on the links.

Bandon Dunes is rightly considered to be one of the best golf resorts in the world, with a core function and belief that "golf was born on rugged, wind-swept land like this”. This epic golf resort provides a stunning golf experience akin to that found at many of the world's greatest links golf courses in Scotland and Ireland, and is a superb alternative to the classic American classics of Pebble Beach, Sawgrass, and Kiawah Island.
