I've played Sandpiper before but I took my 88 year old FIL with me for this round. The staff was extremely accommodating with his limitations which enabled him to enjoy his round. The course is in really good shape. The greens are firm and much faster than average which is my preference, and it's hard to find greens where there is a lot of play like that. The reads are true so it's just a matter of getting the right speed. A very fair layout and a super value via GolfNow.

Greens were fast, loved them, played 18 under 4 hours. Could not have been happier with the course and the day. Played the senior tees. If you want a higher challenge there are two more tee boxes further back. Booking was simple online. Price was appropriate.

I have played this course in the past and always in good condition. Yesterday the course was in pristine shape. The greens were fast and held shots, fairways and tee boxes were great. All in all a fun course to play and the staff was very nice. We played in 3 hours and 45 minutes

Wife and I were pleasantly surprised. We had looked to buy a condo in neighborhood, and based on price we had low expectations for the courses. We played two of the three nines and really liked it. Lots of water which made it challenging and fun.

The course for early in the year was in fairly good condition. Tee boxes were kind of sparse and the greens were grainy and slow. However, the overall course was good and a place I love to play. However, the starter seemed to favour other groups and being a single he put me off for 45 minutes after my tee time was scheduled.

I got to the course early to warm up at their great range. So the wait put me there about 2 hrs before teeing off! Other than that the experience was good.

This course is always in good condition, and this round was no exception. The greens were in excellent shape, and fast. Fairways and rough were also in good shape, and sand traps were recently worked on and filled with new sand. We played Bay and Sand courses.

Course was in good shape for March. Staff very friendly in club house and at bag drop. We had a foursome with our wives and were constantly pushed by twosomes. Must of let six twosomes through which made everyone uncomfortable.
