The Whiskey Run Mountain Trail Bike system received funding support from Wild Rivers Coast Alliance, now known as the Bandon Dunes Charitable Foundation.
BANDON, OREGON | Since the day it opened in 2012 and started collecting fees from golfers, the 13-hole Bandon Preserve short course has been much more than a fun alternative for visitors at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. It’s a centerpiece of charitable contribution, conservation and community enhancement on Oregon’s South Coast. That foundational mission was not lost on Marie Simonds as she took a brief break from spearheading those various endeavors to play in a sixsome on the Preserve.
“I’ve had a front-row seat to the Keisers’ generosity,” Simonds, the executive director of the charitable arm founded by Bandon resort owner Mike Keiser, said as she enjoyed a pristine afternoon walking and playing the “course with a mission” overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
