Should all this comparing and contrasting have you primed for an on-site tour of your own, you’ll need to consider a few logistical particulars. First, ease of access is a point in favor of Pebble.
Second, do you plan on venturing off-property at any point? With attractions like 17-Mile Drive and the elegant village of Carmel-by-the-Sea, the Monterey Peninsula serves up diversions aplenty. Pebble has a decided advantage here, but don’t overlook Bandon Dunes’ namesake town, a charming fishing village.
What I learned from my one visit to Bandon Dunes is this: As an idyllic place to stay and play golf it has only two peers—the Monterey Peninsula and the town of St. Andrews.
Color me a confirmed Bandonista.
