Has a Bandon Dunes caddie made your experience at the resort better?

If you've played our favorite resort (as we have on over 20 different visits) the answer is, no-doubt, a resounding yes. As you can imagine hundreds of Bandon Dunes caddies are out of work right now, as the resort is closed through the month of April.

It doesn't take long for back-up funds to run out, and the guys and gals who we ask for club selections, rain protection, green reading, bunker raking, good humor and psychoanalysis (not necessarily in that order) are asking for a little help back.

Through a Go Fund Me campaign and an amazing video to inspire you to visit Bandon (and take a caddie) again soon, you can help Bandon Dunes Resort caddies whether the storm.

We'll be back for the rescheduled 19th playing of the Two Man Links Championship on June 24-28. As of press time, there were a few team spots available. Because if you watched the video, you're inspired to get back there and play Sheep Ranch. We can't wait.

Visit the Two Man Links Championship directory listing for details and registration.
