Golf at Sandpiper Bay

When we arrived there were a lot of golfers waiting to go. I thought this was going to be an Epic slow day. WRONG, once we got going no waiting no holdups, course ran smoothly. 4 hr round. Perfect weather day. First day in M.B. Coming from the North weather was perfect!

Lots of water and sand

The course was a little wet with cart path only on a few holes. The pace of play was terrific, little over 4 hours. Will be returning soon.

comfortable

Comfortable residential course. I played all 27 holes on this visit and enjoyed my day. There is always one hole someone doesn't get or like but that isn't a drawback on the layout for me. Conditions with new greens were well ahead of a lot of courses in the area this time of year. Staff great.
