Sand to Piper

Great value. Nice layout with some very interesting holes. Tees, fairways, traps, and greens were all in good condition. Played with nice people which made the experience even better.

Good course, decent conditions, great value

Lots of rain overnight meant some wet fairways and washed out bunkers early in the day. But they still let carts off the cart path, and it drained pretty quickly. By the 7th hole things had firmed up nicely. Greens rolled good, not super fast, but true. Course is above the Mendoza line for Myrtle Beach area. Nice mix of holes, a little water but not overboard like some MB area courses.
I'd play it again!

The course 27 holes were aerated two days ago. The fairways were properly maintained and the staff were professional and very pleasant.
I highly recommend the course.

Best value and course conditions

Even though the greens were aerated (as stated when booked) the greens still were very playable. The course as always was in excellent shape. And the round was very enjoyable as there were no problems with pace of play. I was a single and at least 3 if not 4 groups allowed me to play through. The only comment of concern is they now give a very small bag of warm up balls for the range. However, it was explained that others abused the range and would hit balls and not being playing. A suggestion would be to give out paper wrist bands or some simple ID tag instead of limiting patrons. However, I keep company by back and telling people about this course because it is a great place for all level of golfers at a extremely reasonable rate. Keep up the great work! See you again on the next trip to the area.

Sand Piper Bay

The course was in excellent condition today. Greens were plush and rolled true. I would definitely recommend playing SandPiper Bay if in the Sunset Beach area.

Greens

The greens were full and in good shape but were extremely slow. All the water coolers were empty and they had no refreshment cart. When I called the pro shop to inform them they didn’t seem concerned. The temperature was 91*. Personal coolers not allowed.

Good deal

Found a great deal on a Saturday morning, so my boy and I decided to check this place out. The course is surrounded by houses, but the conditions were good, and the houses were always far enough away so as not to pose much of a threat of hitting any of them. We only played the Piper nine, and the staff was great about accommodating us and allowing us to only pay for nine, even though I had booked it as 18. The fairways were wide and almost all straight, so that's good for our skill level. The pace was pretty slow, but that's good since my son takes a lot of strokes. Overall it was very nice and I'd definitely play here again.

Fantastic Course for Cheap!!

Paid under 30 for a round here and the course was immaculate. Cant believe it was public. Greens were well maintained and there was plenty of water and sand obstacles to keep things interesting. If I had to make one complaint it would be that the womens tee boxes avoided most of the obstacles making it pretty boring for the advanced female golfer. All in all 10\10.
