The meaning behind the monoliths in the Lodge at Bandon Dunes


On their recent trip to Bandon Dunes, the GolfGetaways crew took an in-depth look at some of the most fascinating aspects of the resort and property that have nothing to do with the incredible golf courses there.

One of those intriguing, and somewhat mysterious, features is the set of monolithic stones in the middle of the Lodge. Mitch Laurance explains why the basalt stones are there, what they mean to the resort and it founders, as well the work that went into simply getting them where they are in the first place.
