Fun but challenging

Played the Piper to Bay nines . Good mixture of long and short holes that were a little more challenging because of the wind . Pace of play was good ( little over 4 hrs). Course in good condition but greens seemed a little slow. Overall, a fun round of golf

Great golf at a really reasonable price!

For $40 for 18 holes in the Myrtle Beach area you can’t beat this course. We paid more for courses that don’t come anywhere near to the quality of Sandpiper Bay. The fairways and greens are in great shape. The club house, pro shop and snack bar the best we found on our week of golf. This is the best course we have played in the last four years of a fall week of golf in the Myrtle Beach area.

Good price and great course

Everything was great except my tee time was at 10, so I arrived 30 minutes early to hit balls and warm up. The starter yelled my name after 5 minutes telling me I needed to hurry up as he had me grouped with two other guys also having a 10 tee time. Luckily it was great to play with them. Just wish the warm up time would have been given.

Nice course

Really nice grass for the area. I’m from Ohio and this was the best grass I’ve seen in the area. The houses are a little close if you can’t hit it straight but I didn’t have any problem

A gem of 27

A nice layout great conditions, greens rolled true and were in nice shape.. The clubhouse was great pro shop stocked with football season gear!

Only thing to improve would be some friendliness for the guy loading carts. The starter was on his game very engage and sharing for course knowledge.

Sand to Piper

Great value. Nice layout with some very interesting holes. Tees, fairways, traps, and greens were all in good condition. Played with nice people which made the experience even better.

Good course, decent conditions, great value

Lots of rain overnight meant some wet fairways and washed out bunkers early in the day. But they still let carts off the cart path, and it drained pretty quickly. By the 7th hole things had firmed up nicely. Greens rolled good, not super fast, but true. Course is above the Mendoza line for Myrtle Beach area. Nice mix of holes, a little water but not overboard like some MB area courses.
I'd play it again!
