Wed 2/21 was a gorgeous day...Sunny ...little wind...my wife and I were paired with to wonderful gentlemen. Pace of play was adequate ,4 hrs..20 min Unfortunately Sandpiper,(long one of my favorites in MB) was is terrible condition: Greens were sprayed and not well manicured, Fairways were the worst I've ever played on anywhere, ,ever...no grass and extremely muddy. I was shocked that we were told we go drive 90*. Being nearly 70 yrs playing the white tees at approx 6100 yds is a challenge ...I only hit my tee shot about 200-210 yds that's with roll. well over half of our tee shots plugged. Not Fun!

Fairways were thin but due to not over seeding this year due to weather. Will definitely go back when fairways come in good.

We have played Sand Piper Bay many times and love the course. This time, we noticed the cart paths are cracking up, the fairway grass is flat, and the entire course was wet. They made no mention of cart path - only on any holes, but several were unplayable. I know it is mid-February, but they should respect their course better than that.

Normally, I'd give this course a hardy recommendation but numerous areas of the fairways were wet or just about mud. Greens were unrecognizable (paint?) and extremely fast. Been playing this course for years and I was disappointed......but I'll come back again.

As with most courses now, fairways are asleep waiting for warmer temps to grow, greens were soft lightning fast and needed a break to recover, traps were excellent and Tee boxes were over played with spotty grass. If you're just out to play, go for it otherwise don't expect above average conditions.

Very friendly staff. The course was still wet from the previous rain but it was only cart path only on the back 9. Fast greens (we are out of towners and I guess this is the norm) that took a while getting used to. I'm betting this course is absolutely beautiful in the summer.
