Excellent condition for winter golf.

The staff was awesome. Charlie the starter funny fantastic guy. Pro shop super friendly and well stocked even this time of year. The course was in excellent condition. They cover the greens at night to prevent frost. One of the only public courses in the area I have seen do this. Greens were fast and rolling beautifully, tough subtle breaks to read. Fairways excellent condition as well. Considering that the area more than doubled yearly rainfall totals since Sept this was one of the best courses I have played within an hour of Wilmington for drainage, 90 deg rule for the day. Fun layout, sand traps well maintained for this time of year, rough was dormant grass so it made it nice and easy to get out of lol. Free balls at the range to warm up before the round. They even called me up after the round to let me know I left my jacket in the cart. Fantastic round will certainly be coming back.

One of the best in North MB

We normally stay in the south so don't want to drive an hour plus. To access some new courses we stayed in North MB for a change for 10 days. I have been less than impressed by some of the courses we accessed. But we LOVED Sandpiper Bay and would go back there anytime, even if it means driving from Murrells Inlet. Staff were fantastic. Course is wonderful even though it was very wet in spots due to the excessive rain they've been getting. Cart paths could use some work..

Getting better all the time

The course was in good shape, pace was slow. Three some followed by a twosome made up of the husbands of the threesome. Greens were in good shape compared to a year ago. They protect them at night when it's below 32deg.

Cool but still enjoyable

Temperature did not reach 50* F. today, making for less than ideal conditions. However, course was in very good condition considering recent excessive rainfall. The greens were fast and true, making for an enjoyable round. We will certainly return to Sandpiper soon!

Very good round

We had a super day and found all staff members to be friendly and helpful. Pace of play was ideal at 4hrs15 min. Like everywhere else in Myrtle Beach right now, the course is still quite wet after an exceptionally rainy fall season, so fairways and approach areas are soggy. Drives and second shots that fall short of the green get very little (if any roll) after first impact. Greens are firm and dry and run true. Club selection becomes critical in these conditions. Highly recommended course overall.
