This course has some very difficult holes

Traveling around this course will reveal some very easy and very difficult holes. We played from the gold tees so the course did not play overly long.

Extremely Disappointing

Have played this course numerous times over the years and although it was never in great shape, it was always decent and playable. Most recently, it has really fallen into a disgraceful state. The only aspect of the course that I would come close to rating 3 stars are the greens. Fairways and tee boxes are beat up and in desperate need of attention. I understand that we haven't had much rain this summer but it's obvious that the problem is more than a lack of water. As is the case with Sand Springs' other facility (Edgewood) it appears that the focus has drifted away from investing in the golf course and paying (pun intended) more attention to the events (weddings, banquets....) side of the business. Not sure if/how any homeowners are impacted by having a golf course in their community but I would be one irate resident if I had to pay any type of association fees related to the course. Unfortunately, my group, along with others we previously steered towards playing Sand Springs will not be returning. We've already added Edgewood to our list of run down courses that should be avoided and Sand Springs joins that list.

No need for tee times

Called ahead for a tee time and was given one. Unfortunately, start of round was delayed 30 minutes due to staff accepting walk-in golfers (those without tee time). When tee time came there was 3 foursomes waiting to tee off. No starter, no ranger and no amenities on the course.
Course was in good shape for this time of year. Difficult to keep ball in play with all the mountain slopes and narrow fairways. Bring a supply of balls. Par threes' are difficult as they are tee to green only. Greens are surrounded by gorges, wetlands, sand traps and woods. Course is not very forgiving nor for the beginner golfer.

Hello Fellow Golfer,
Our apologies that your experience at our club did not meet up to your standards. I would like to explain the situation that you encountered. All fell back to mother nature. Upon sunrise the temperature at the course was 19 degrees and the course was covered in a heavy frost. Our first tee time that was scheduled had actually suffered a 60 minute delay until they were able to tee off. On an extremely busy day getting the time cut by 50% is considered to be successful. As for amenities on the course I refer back to the temperature and time of the year. Ball washers, water coolers, etc., can not be placed out onto the course due to exposure to the elements of mother nature. I due hope you come to Sand Springs again and see what our course can offer when we are in the full swing of the season.

Great Course, Layout, and Condition

First time playing but really enjoyed rounding. Very soft fairways, well-maintained greens, and beautiful layout. It could be slightly challenging to beginners but worth to play.
