Great greens, the fastest and smoothest in the area.

27 Holes, excellent deal on a 9 hole replay.

Free range balls!

We played all 3 of the 9 hole courses at Sandpiper Bay , actually came back for another round , it was that nice . Everything was very good , from course conditions , driving range , pace of play , even on course beverage cart . One of the starters came to our car to welcome us and get our bags . That is exactly what you expect when you come to an area known to be a golf course destination . Worth the ride if you are staying in Myrtle Beach , just take Rt 17 north . We played the Barefoot Fazio course the day after Sandpiper and were totally disappointed by the condition of the course and people that worked there . Put Sandpiper Bay on your list if you need a course to play , Piper & Bay 9's were the better two .

I had played this course once before in the summer... not too busy. This time, there was a fairly good size crowd. I thought it wouldn't be bad with 27 holes available... wrong! The first 9 holes (Bay) took right at 3 hours!!! The back 9 holes (Sand) took 2 1/2 hours. It really is a shame... great course, good weather... poor management. Seems this is club that believes on stuffing as many people as possible on the course.

I won't be back again...

From Head Golf Professional Brett Thomaswick;

Sandpiper Bay enjoys a slower more relaxed pace of play during the summer months with fewer rounds and hotter temperatures. In the fall we experience consistent sell outs of our tee sheet with 8 minute tee time intervals and the use of all 27 holes.

Our pace of play policy includes encouraging golfers to play the correct set of tees and to stay behind the group in front of you and not just in front of the group behind you. We feel pace of play is every golfers responsibility and try our best to offer an enjoyable experience.

As stated earlier, we offer 8 minute tee time intervals and only have 2 full hours of bookings before the turn. We do not squeeze any golfers or force a turn of longer than 2 hours.

Please come early before your tee time and enjoy complimentary range balls.

We enjoyed the course. The greens were nice. My only complaint is that it was a very slow round. They allowed a five-some of women to play..I am a woman so I can say that! We said something to the starter and he said he'd drive around to make sure the play was on pace and he did not. There were 2 holes open in front of them and they didn't allow anyone to go thru.

The distance was average 6300+ but the fairways were very soft giving 0 roll. Play up tees from where you normally play if you want to enjoy your round. ps The greens had been punched within the last 2 weeks and were bumpy but playable.
