Encores aren't easy when you've got three of the top 15 public courses in the country, but Bandon developer Mike Keiser has crashed his own party. He enlisted Tom Doak and Jim Urbina to channel architect C.B. Macdonald, who in 1911 created National Golf Links of America, the New York layout that paid homage to the best in Britain. Turnpike-wide landing areas provide room amid the typical gusts, and the gigantic greens are hard to miss. Getting the ball into the hole, however, is another matter. All of the Macdonald tributes are in place (from a "Redan" to a "Biarritz") but the best hole might be a Doak/Urbina original, the 377-yard, par-4 7th, which climbs atop a dune ridge in full view of the Pacific. That Old Macdonald is already mentioned in the same breath with Bandon's best speaks volumes.
