Dream Golf: The Making of Bandon Dunes
Hardcover - English

Motivated by the simple desire to create the best and purest golf experience possible, one man sets out to build a world-class golf course on the Oregon coast--and succeeds beyond all his dreams. ..."Mike Keiser followed his instincts to build courses that speak to golf as a rugged adventure. Steve Goodwin's spirited book will speak to the golfing soul in you." --Lorne Rubenstein, columnist for The Globe and Mail (Canada) and author of A Season in Dornoch

On a wild, windblown bluff high above the Pacific sits one of America's premier golfing destinations, Bandon Dunes. Golf enthusiast Mike Keiser had the dream of building this British-style "links" course on a stretch of Oregon's rugged coast, and Dream Golf is the first all-inclusive account of how he turned his passion into a reality.

Now, in this updated and expanded edition, golf writer Stephen Goodwin revisits Bandon Dunes and introduces readers to Keiser's latest effort there, a new course named Old Macdonald that will present golfers with a more rugged, untamed version of the game. This "new" approach to the sport is, in fact, a return to the game's origins, with a very deep bow to Charles Blair Macdonald (1856 -1939), the father of American golf course architecture and one of the founders of the U.S. Golf Association. This highly anticipated fourth course, designed by renowned golf course architect Tom Doak along with Jim Urbina -- as detailed in Dream Golf -- will further enhance Bandon Dunes' reputation as a place where golf really does seem to capture the ancient magic of the game.
