All 3 courses are well maintained and nice

Nice course, always well kept. Small greens make the second shot a little challenging but very nice greens. Should definately be able to score well on this course after a few rounds as it gives you fun oppertunities. The starters actually pay attention and strategically send groups out preventing slow play. For the price, and pace of play, this course is worth a try.

Fun Everytime

Course layout is easy to challenging. Greens in good shape. Fairways could use a little tighter mow but fair to good. Price extremely good deal.

Sndpiper

For someone new to th course or who has not play d very often, finding holes is sometimes confusing. The course needs more markers directing players to holes.

Not worth the money

Inexpensive round of golf, but it was worth even less than the 30$ they charged. I only played there because I had the afternoon off and I wanted to work on something in my game. For the life of me I don’t know why courses like this even exist. Dirt everywhere. Tee boxes, fairways, sand traps. Staff was indifferent. But what do you expect. It’s a prime example of 18 holes of golf built on 14 holes of land. I’ve played many golf courses that cost $30 and they are able to maintain some standards. This course has none.

Nice greens.

Nice open layout, big course feel. Some interesting doglegs. Grass is a little thin on some tees and fairways, but the greens made up for it. Fun day.

Poor Manangement

I enjoyed the course. Unfortunately, my tee time was reserved through Golf Now for 3 golfers. When I checked in and payed at the club house only myself and Kevin had showed up. Jim my third golfer was a no show no call. Very unlike him. I explained the situation to the starter/cashier. The response was " no problem, enjoy your game i hope everything is ok with Jim. One week later i got a 40.00 dollar charge on my CC for the no show. call the course and Golf Now. basically got an "OH WELL " from both. I am CX my Golf Now membership and Sandpiper is permanently of the rotation. What a shame! Disappointed, Randall Davis

Fairways are very sparse. Tee boxes are not level for the most part. If they were watered and fertilized one might have a better opinion. Club Link courses in Ontario, Canada are far superior than this club link course.

Great Greens

This course has taken it to the next level with their greens. VERY NICE. Fairways and tee boxes a bit spotty in places, but it didn't detract from enjoyment at all. Layout is player friendly, but still a challenge with the small undulating greens.
