Hole 12 at Bandon Trails is a challenging par 4, with the championship tees measuring in at 242 yards. This hole has a handicap of 18, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course.

The tee shot on this hole requires precision and strategy. With an average drive distance of 217 yards, using a driver may not be the best option for most golfers. Instead, consider using a fairway wood or long iron to position yourself for your approach shot.

As you make your way towards the green, you will encounter three bunkers strategically placed throughout the fairway. These bunkers are well-guarded and can easily come into play if you're not careful with your shots. However, they only account for about 5% of total bunker coverage on this hole.

When approaching the green, keep in mind that it measures at a spacious 15,507 square feet. This gives players some room for error when aiming their approach shots onto the putting surface.

Depending on weather conditions and altitude changes throughout different seasons, club selection may vary from day to day on this hole. In general though, expect wind to play a factor in ball flight as Bandon Dunes Resort is located near coastal Oregon where strong winds can often be present.

For most golfers hitting from these tees (average distances listed above), we recommend using either a long iron or hybrid off the tee followed by another long iron or hybrid onto green depending upon how close you were able to get off first two shots respectively.
