Bandon Dunes Golf
The mecca of walking golf in North America if not the world. Located on the Oregon Coast, BDGR is truly “golf as it was meant to be” and a haven for walking only golf. Pacific Dunes, Bandon Trails, Bandon Dunes and Old Macdonald (opening in June, 2010) are all fantastic tracks well worth a trip to play.

The ultimate walking golfers club located in the beautiful chop hills of eastern Colorado. Ballyneal represents golf in its purest and most enjoyable form and we are grateful for their support of the walking game.

As one of the best public walking only golf links in the country, it is no surprise that Chambers Bay has been selected to host the 2010 US Amateur and 2015 US Open. Located on the shores of Puget Sound in Washington, this RTJ II design provides a spectacular day of golf.

  1. I found this site when I searched for “100 best walking golf courses.”. How about compiling that list?

  2. We hope to do that one day! Top 100 Walking Courses in the US would be an aweseom ranking.
