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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

I’ve played here recently and enjoyed it. However this time was terrible. I arrived 20 minutes before my tee time and I was rushed to the tee box. Literally. I was aware they wanted me to tee off however I just got there and as I tried to drive past the started to use the restroom he kept waving me down saying no and pointing to the palms. Obviously I had no choice but to tee up. No restroom break till after hole 4. No one likes to play being rushed. Then my wife was learning how to play yet a foursome behind us kept hitting up on us. Won’t go back unless I get a hot deal.

I’ll start by saying the pub staff was fantastic and the food was good! I arrived and the course staff was in shambles....the starter was MIA and the woman in the pro shop was obviously frustrated and less than cordial. The course layout was nice but the maintenance was lacking. Greens were fair but the fairways looked like pasture. Good value for beginners maybe but not what I expected from the other reviews

I was a single and they put me behind an older gentleman group of 12 that literally teed off after I pulled up. Let me explain. I drive up to tee box one. I see a threesome at the senior tees hanging out. They look at me like I’m unwelcome as I’m only 33 then they tee off as another cart was pulling up behind me. He sits a few paces behind me as I’m thinking he’s by himself perhaps I’m paired with him. Turns out that another car of two pull up behind him and they’re with him. I say hi how’s it going. They look at me as a single and tell me how they’re with the group that just tees off and also they’re other people are behind them. So I say / suggest maybe I should play ahead. They say eh. Then drive past me and tee off on the senior tees. Hmmm. ... that cool. So before the other group came I teed off to split them up. Unprofessional older group. I know for certain on a par 5 I had an incredible drive and it was close enough to their shots they picked up my ball. I shot an 83 that day with two mulligans no reason I had to be at that pace behind those folk. O well. The course it nice. Needs a map or something since I’ve only played once and haven’t a clue to the layout.

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.
