Part II of Coore-Crenshaw Day was a lovely stroll of the 13-hole, yes 13 holes, Bandon Preserve Par 3 Links Course. All the links elements-dunes, fierce bunkers, wild greens, and, of course, the wind. No designated tees but plenty of options on each hole to pick from. It is a perfect place to let your hair down, unwind, and settle a few bets. Bandon Preserve is a real diamond in the rough. With short tracks like these in every town in America golf would be enjoyed by many, many more folks.

Big friendly groupings, a few bets, and some adult beverages.
A little Jack happiness.
And there is the ocean.
