The Oaks 9-hole course is not in good shape. The golf cart practically had no brakes (had to stop 30 ft. away to be sure I stopped without hitting anything) and was not in good shape (torn seat). The Lakes 9-hole course was in much better shape.

Sandpiper is just minutes off I-75 in Sun City. It's a nice course with 3 different 9 hole layouts. We played the Oaks and the Lakes. The greens were very nice.

Also, nice merchandise in the pro shot--I bought a shirt. After golf, we enjoyed the indoor/outdoor bar/grill area.

Fairway grass is too sparse. Hitting most fairway shots off the deck is not enjoyable experience. Playing Club Link courses in Canada is a totally different experience. As a snowbird I’m disappointed with the conditions I’m finding a lot of public courses here in Florida

Good course. Friendly staff. People without tee times were allowed on in front of us. Frustrating. It was windy but still fun. Fairways and greens are in great shape. Worth the $ and time. Just don’t make plans to play in under 5+ hours.

We drove 50 miles from Venice, Florida, and the weather was cool by Florida standards. Our foursome played in less than 4 hours mainly because we had the course to ourselves. Only one other foursome did we encounter during our play. The course was good +, interesting holes with water and enough sand to keep you honest. Our rate was good for this time of the year. The pro shop manager was very informative and very friendly. Small bag of balls was a bit pricey and driving range was mats only. Would go back in better weather and pay a similar price from Golf Now.

We played the Lakes and the Palms courses. The Lakes 9 was a little wetter in the fairways and rough than should be expected. Course layout is enjoyable, only request would be they include hole diagrams on their scorecards. We were shooting blind on a few holes not knowing where to play. The food and service at the Turn was very solid. All in all we enjoyed our round and all agreed we would be back to play there again.

The front nine was in terrible shape (Lakes), tees not mowed, or fairways. The back side (Palm) was in better condition. Greens were fair, not fast. Not worth the price they charged.

I didn't lose one ball though water came into play a number of times. But as usual to lose a ball in the water it has to be a bad shot and your own fault, except for a few courses I've played and not returned to. Sandpiper I will return to over and over again.
