Course in great shape!

This day we played the Piper and Bay courses. The greens were very true and running at moderate speed. Due to recent rains, some of the sand bunkers were not groomed as we would like, but did not detract from an enjoyable round. Sandpiper Bay is always a favorite "return to" course for us.

Sandpiper Bay 2/13/20

The course was in very good shape. Courteous, helpful staff. Great value. Played the Sand & Bay courses. Played a twosome and had the courses all to ourselves except for the last 6 holes when we caught up to a 3-some, then 4-some, but pace of play was fine, hardly had to wait much at all. We played from the white tees. Don't think total yardage was much more than 6300ish yards, but seemed to play longer--strong wind didn't help much.
Would definitely play again and again.

First Class Facility and Employees

From the bag drop to the pro shop, to the cart area, starter and ranger all friendly employees making sure your experience is easy and enjoyable. This has become one of my favorite courses based on the staff and the facilities and course conditions and value.

In addition to a great clubhouse there is a practice range, and large putting green.

All tee boxes and greens were in very good shape, and fairways are over seeded for winter and in fair condition. A little thin in some areas, but that can be expected for January and February. And I did experience a few bunkers but they had sufficient sand allowing escape !

Best of all unlike most other courses they have a ranger who will keep things moving !

I drive an hour each way to play here and plan to come at least once a month.

Golf with friends

Played the Bay and Sands todat. 90 degrees on the fairways, with some wet spots. Pace of play was great, seems like everyone else feared CPO.

Overall I would give it 4 1/2 stares, as there are still some bare spots, and looks like at some point, the greens were painted.

Will play again, during spring and am sure it will rate a solid 5 stars

Awesome Value

For Myrtle off-season, and considering they were pummelled by a storm two days earlier, this course was terrific! Great layout, the greens rolled so true. We wish we would have booked all of our vacation rounds here!

Fun to Play

We played the Piper and Bay courses this day. Course conditions were almost perfect, except greens were slightly inconsistent speeds on the Piper course. Fairways were excellent. Thankfully, we were riding fairways as cart paths are suffering from invasive tree roots in many places. Overall, Sandpiper Bay is fun to play and we will continue to rank it among our favorite courses.

Bill from Akron

Sandpiper was in great condition. The greens were soft and rolled well. The course had some soft areas near the greens, but overall the course played well. The pace of play was ideal for my wife and I.

Fun but challenging

Played the Piper to Bay nines . Good mixture of long and short holes that were a little more challenging because of the wind . Pace of play was good ( little over 4 hrs). Course in good condition but greens seemed a little slow. Overall, a fun round of golf

Great golf at a really reasonable price!

For $40 for 18 holes in the Myrtle Beach area you can’t beat this course. We paid more for courses that don’t come anywhere near to the quality of Sandpiper Bay. The fairways and greens are in great shape. The club house, pro shop and snack bar the best we found on our week of golf. This is the best course we have played in the last four years of a fall week of golf in the Myrtle Beach area.

Good price and great course

Everything was great except my tee time was at 10, so I arrived 30 minutes early to hit balls and warm up. The starter yelled my name after 5 minutes telling me I needed to hurry up as he had me grouped with two other guys also having a 10 tee time. Luckily it was great to play with them. Just wish the warm up time would have been given.
