Bang for the Buck

Difficult at this time of year to find a decent course at a reasonable price but Sandpiper fit the bill. Would play there again for the same price.

A good choice with extra help for high handicaper

The course is in reasonably good shape. Wide fairways and mostly filled divots. The greens are very large with few ball marks. The green speed was slow-moderate to moderate. There are 5 sets of tees including a lavender for way, way up front help for very high handicaps. My wife loved that part. Everyone working at the course was very helpful and of good humor.

Nice day

A 10am tee time helped, but the 3 nines spread out golfers so we went thru in under 3.5 hours. Tee boxes and greens in good shape, houses far off the fairways, water on few holes. A nice, relaxing round of golf.

Good greens, bad bunkers.

Cool little layout. We played the Palms 9, then the Oaks. Palms had much larger greens and more straight forward layout. The oaks course is actually a lot of fun with it’s winding fairways and very small greens. My buddy is from Monterey California and he said a lot of these greens were about the size of those found at Pebble Beach. All of the greens were rolling pretty well, but the areas around the greens and the bunkers all over the course (especially fairway bunkers) were not in good shape. This made chipping and pitching extremely challenging. The little bar/ restaurant on site is fun, and the bartender was really friendly.

Tough enough

My friend and I played Lakes and Palms. Both courses were in great shape. Greens were in great shape and consistent. The greens are small which makes accuracy critical. The lakes has several holes where good shots are required to score well. Hole 2 requires an accurate tee shot to avoid a large ravine. Hole 3 is risk reward on tee shot. Too much and your ball could roll into lake. The par 3s on Palms are long 150+ from senior tees. Playing Sandpiper was a lot of fun.

Good Value

Course is in decent shape. Played Oaks then Lakes. Finished in 4 hours 15 minutes. Fairways were good, greens on Oaks were a bit slow, rolled true, with very few bare spots. Greens on Lakes rolled better and fairways were a bit better, (really very good,) traps were not raked in most spots. No complaints for the price.

Not too great

Great day out with my boys, but wish we had gone to play another course. It is our annual Christmas Golf Outing, and we try to play some different courses each year. This year, we tried Sandpiper Golf Club, and were disappointed. The course needs a LOT better irrigation, as the rains of late made it a very soggy, hard to play, day. The ones at work, today, didn't seem very friendly, at all.
