Reckless a-Bandon: Camp 101 Golf Driving Range & Lodge.

As the saying goes, the road less traveled makes all the difference. And if you take the leisurely drive down coastal Highway 101 (as opposed to Interstate 5) to begin your Bandon Dunes Golf Vacation, you’ll come across a driving range that is utterly and undeniably…different.

Almost everyone has enjoyed the guilty pleasure of trying to plunk the range picker at their local driving range. Well, picture an entire driving range with irresistible targets like that and you’ll get a sense of what Camp 101 Golf Driving Range & Lodge is all about. Located in the town of Florence, about 90 minutes north of Bandon, it’s golf meets Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. 

Instead of typical targets, Camp 101’s range includes a variety of random objects, such as lawnmowers and washing machines. Basically, it’s everything but the kitchen sink. Actually, it may even include the kitchen sink.

This bric-a-brac design theme is consistent throughout the six-acre complex, which also includes a nine-hole par-3 course and “game hall” with ping-pong, air hockey, foosball and darts. There’s also a clubhouse that sells a cornucopia of kitschy and nostalgic souvenirs, gifts, games and snacks.

The town of Florence is so small, you could blink and miss it, but Camp 101 is hard not to notice. Just look for the hyper-colorful building with way too many artifacts stuck to the outside of it.

This is a great place to visit on your way to a Bandon Dunes Golf Vacation.

    That looks so awesome…and a bit like my neighbor’s yard. I may have to stop there, I’m planning a trip down that way. I’m glad I found this.
