Gamble Sands 2023 // Sabbatical Info
Have you ever wished you could go back in time to visit Bandon Dunes back in the year 2000? Pacific Dunes wasn't yet finished and the now world-renowned golf resort was still in its infancy, reserved only for golfers "in-the-know". Well...unfortunately you're out of luck, time travel is still several lifetimes away. However, if visiting a newish world-class golf destination that you can share with your friends is appealing, Suave can help.
Gamble Sands is already ranked as the 14th best public course in North America according to Golf.com, ranking ahead Bandon Dunes' Sheep Ranch and Old Macdonald, as well as world-renowned tracks like Harbour Town, Shadow Creek, Kapalua and Spyglass Hill. With a new par-3 course, aptly named Quicksands, and another 18-hole course coming in 2025, Gamble Sands is fast becoming one of the premier golf destinations in the Western hemisphere and the opportunity to visit in its early infancy is still within grasp.
Join fellow Suave golfers for a couple days of fellowship and shotmaking at one of North America's finest golf destinations.
