On the Trail of Greatness
The magic of Bandon Trails
By John Dunn, photographs by Wood Sabold

With its first tee overlooking Bandon Dunes, it’s almost as if the new Bandon Trails, designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, is tipping its hat to its celebrated older sibling before tumbling off over an immense bank of dunes down into the meadow and the forest . . . into the next exciting chapter in the evolution of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.

The Top Ten
The ultimate list for the discerning golfer

It is impossible to create the definitive list of the best golf courses in the world. In the end, no list can be as thoroughly objective as we may claim. Each of us, after all, will always hold fast to our favorites—and so it should be! In this spirit of subjectivity, The Golfer turned to some of the most discerning
minds in the game, a distinguished group of architects, writers and historians, and asked them to share their unique and refined tastes. The lists they have composed are thoughtful, surprising and at times quite controversial.
