Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Oregon, is not going easy on the U.S. Amateur field. For this week’s event, 264 of the top amateurs from around the world are attaching both the Bandon Dunes and Bandon Trails courses in stroke play before the field is whittled down to 64 men. They will then complete six more rounds of match play to determine the 2020 U.S. Amateur winner.
Despite being an elite field, Bandon has still proved to be a difficult challenge. Some players mastered the cold, windy test on the first day, but many others watched their scores balloon in the opening rounds of stroke play.
One thing is for certain, and it’s that the backdrop can’t be beat. There are not bad photos at Bandon, just have a look for yourself.
