Yes, I'd Pay $100 To Play 13 Holes at Bandon


It seems there is a lot of uproar right now about the new golf course at Bandon Dunes, titled Bandon Preserve, that will only be 13 holes, and they'll all be short ones, ranging from 65-180 yards. The golf course is supposedly majestic unlike any of the other ones at Bandon, and will have incredible views of the Pacific while you battle the course and the conditions.

Price? $100.

A lot of people think that's too steep, saying they wouldn't pay that for just 13 holes of par-3 golf, but come on, you're forgetting a lot of things by saying that.

First, it's Bandon Dunes. These aren't golfers banging out tee times on GolfNow.com, these are wealthy or fairly wealthy individuals spending a vacation at THE golf mecca of the United States. At Bandon you eat, drink and sleep golf, never stepping foot in your car or at anything that doesn't have a flag or a pint in front of you. The bar is at the clubhouse. The restaurant is as well. The gym at Bandon is barely a gym, and the time I was there, I remember noting that few people had ever used that athletic equipment. And above all that, these guys aren't worried about the price. If they were, they wouldn't be at Bandon Dunes. So $100 for 13 holes is probably a nice little move for the guys when they're a little golfed out. Just think on the fourth day of 36 holes, how nice it might be to swing over to Bandon Preserve and get in a short 13 holes with your buddies.

Also, is $100 ridiculous? Just perusing some tee times in my town, Scottsdale, makes me think that isn't bad at all. You're not really paying for the golf, you're paying for the experience, and I'm sure this is going to be just as good as everything else at Bandon. Plus, is $35 an hour a bad rate for fun? Think about how long $35 would last you in Las Vegas. Or at a bar. Not very much. But you're spending nearly three hours with your buddies out at a great golf course, and I'm sure a short course like this could make for some incredible money games.

So I'd pay $100 for the Preserve. And I probably will. And so will a ton of people. Because it is going to be awesome, just like everything else at Bandon.
