Great Shorty's

Shorty's was my first stop when I arrived at Bandon. It was the perfect introduction to the facility.

Great layout, gives you the chance to get a feel for how hard the championship courses will be, without being too difficult.

It just an awesome par 3 course! It is right next to the massive practice green (size of half a football field). The driving range is there as well.

Shorty's doesn't seem to get a lot of love, but lots of fun!

Great little practice course

Shorty's is a short little par 3 course at the Bandon Dunes practice center. It's very well put together for a free course. The architecture is spot on and makes you hit a variety of shots. My group took 3 irons and a putter and played a leisurely afternoon round. It's a great spot to practice your game from 150 yards in with clubs you normally wouldn't use. If you're at Bandon, don't skip Shorty's!
