The roots of our experience exist in the surrounding flora and fauna. Shorty Dow understood that. He was the caretaker of the property for decades prior to it becoming what is now known as Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. He prided himself on being curious, knowing the land, and constantly documenting the varying species he’d come across while exploring. However, Shorty did have one furry foe, a black bear, who was as elusive as they come.
While Shorty is no longer alive, his spirit surely is. And it’s out there among the dunes he loved, maybe chasing that elusive bear he never saw, though he swore up and down that it existed.
When you finally get the chance to explore Shorty’s we hope you will be on the lookout as well. Stay tuned later this winter for an official opening date!
