Good course

Good, not great. Nice staff, great pace of play. Just not a real exciting course. The fairways were good, the greens are good, nice middle of the road 18. Certainly worth the $35 I paid, but that’s the limit for me.

First time at Sandpiper Bay

Had a really enjoyable round at Sandpiper Bay, playing Sand and then Piper. Course was in good shape even though it had taken in quite a bit of water recently. I was matched up with a husband and wife from Virginia and we had a great time. Course was fair and the greens were consistent though a little on the slow side.

Staff was very friendly and made sure everything was moving even though there was several large groups playing that morning. Would definitely recommend playing Sandpiper Bay if you are in the Sunset Beach/North Myrtle Beach area.

Great Choice

We have visited Sandpiper Bay twice now and very happy with golf and course. This year we were very disappointed that we were not able to recover my son's SW that he inadvertently left on a green. He reported to the ProShop right after our round and we checked a couple of times - no joy. Even though the club has his name and phone number on top of grip. We had higher expectations for the patrons and the club accountabilities.

Staff was excellent. Enjoyed the layout. Played Piper and Bay 9’s. Good conditions, great value. Will certainly come back. Only complaint is the cart paths need some serious work.

The starting crew were disorganized creating poor social distancing and some initial frustration on getting off on time.
Once on the first tee the course was in good shape, the pace was good and a really nice course for a moderate player with generally open fairways and no funny holes.

Sandpiper Bay

Friendly staff and good course layout. It was well maintained. Played Fiona nine in 1 1/2 hours. Slowed on them back because there was an outing in front of us playing a scramble with only six clubs.

Great layout, good condition

Well maintained course with a fun layout. Water around most holes but not in play unless you really go off course. Friendly staff.

Good Golf for the Money

Overall, it was a good experience. I’ve been coming to this course during vacation for the last 4 years. The greens were just rolled and cut probably a little too low when they were watered a few days back, but overall they rolled pretty decent. Fairways were flush and in good shape.

Not my best experience but it was good

Got to the course 30 minutes early, the guy at the register said “your early you have time to hit a bag of free balls” when the guy got our clubs he said go straight to tee box, when we go to the 1st tee box there was 3 foursomes waiting and we were only 2 players me and my son, on their website it said anyone under 16 was only 25 they never asked the age just charged me the full rate. The pace of play was so slow, felt like they overbooked the tee times. Overall the course was very nice compared to what we normally play on.

Nice course, but cart path is dicey

The course is in excellent shape right now. Only downside is the cart path needs attention.

Great course for solid price

Was paired up with another single (who lived on the course). The pace of play was pretty slow on the back 9 because there was a twosome in front of us taking their time. Very pretty course in pretty good shape. Landscape was very nice. Little disappointed in the greens, they were a bit sandy so the greens were not running true but everything else was really lovely. Somewhat disappointed, I heard you got complimentary range balls and the gentlemen in the clubhouse knew I was from out of town, so he really did not say anything nor told me where to go to check in. Reiterate the course was a pleasure to play for the price. Would recommend.
