Ocean Dunes is located in Florence on the Pacific, due east of Eugene, and is kind of a poor man's Bandon Dunes. It's a true links style course by definition as it was built on sandy and well drained soil at the edge of the ocean, and is open and always windy. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,100 yards par 71, with a slope of 124. The fairways are cut tight and hard, the greens accept and actually promote the bump and run to stay under the constant breeze, and avoid the pot bunkers. The course was designed by William G. Robinson, and is a real treat to play at a reasonable price.
