Keiser gets approval for Bandon Links


Finally, Mike Keiser has secured approval for the next leg of his Oregon Trail.

Last week, after getting a nudge from the governor, the state’s parks commission unanimously endorsed the land swap Keiser needs to build Bandon Links, a pseudo-municipal golf complex, on property south of his Bandon Dunes resort.

Some significant changes are on the horizon, however, for Keiser now apparently plans to build 36 holes instead of 27. Matt Ginella, a correspondent for the Golf Channel, has tweeted that Gil Hanse will design the first 18 and that four architects with a minimalist bent – Mike DeVries, David McLay Kidd, Kyle Phillips and Jim Urbina – are vying to win the commission for the second.
