Excellent cart staff

The cart/starter staff were excellent being it was out first time there. Pro shop was very helpful and check in process went well. The snack bar was not enforcing mask requirement, especially with large groups of players who had finished and were drinking after their round. Overall, except for the mask issue it was a good golfing experience.

Wet, busy, but enjoyable

Was forced to play front 9 sharing a cart with another single. Not acceptable during Covid. Luckily other golfer offered to walked and did not ride in cart. Said they didn't have enough carts but after 9 holes, all courses full any PLENTY of empty carts. They apologized and let us have a second cart in the back nine.

As like all courses I've played down here, all the areas around and short of the green are WAY too wet! Buried more then a few shots into the greens.

First 2 greens on Sand course had major lines of dead grass, probably from leaking hydraulics when cutting grass.

Was pretty upset at the start but staff was friendly about forcing us to be in same cart if such a thing is possible.

Would play again, hopefully when it is not as wet.

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.
