If you’re planning on flying to your Bandon Dunes Golf Vacation, chances are you’ll be connecting to one of Horizon Air’s non-stop flights from Portland (airport code: PDX) to North Bend’s Southwest Oregon Regional Airport (airport code: OTH).
That’s because, unless you’re taking a private or chartered plane, there just aren’t many, if any, other options for getting to the remote Bandon Dunes Resort. (Horizon had offered a non-stop flight from Seattle to North Bend in 2006, but has since canceled it.)
With only four Bandon-bound flights per day (six in the prime summer months), it’s particularly important to schedule your flight from your departure city so it syncs up, especially if you want to get in some golf on the day you arrive.
Horizon’s timetable changes throughout the year, but in general, its daily flights from Portland leave at:
- 10:30 am
- 4:55 pm
- 7:55 pm (except Saturday)
There is also an early afternoon option, but it changes depending on the season. In July and August this year, flights departed at:
- 12:50 pm
- 2:50 pm
However, these last two flights are being replaced by a single flight at 2:10 pm starting on September 9, 2007.
Keep in mind, too, that after the hour-long flight from Portland to North Bend, there’s still a 30-minute drive to the resort (plus check-in time). So, if you don’t want to start your Bandon Dunes golf vacation with anything less than 18 holes, or have to rush around the course to do it, we suggest taking the 10:30.
