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.

First Time Playing

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.

Course in great shape, a little wet

4 1/2 hour round, wet conditions, but allowed to ride on fairway. Bay side closed, but Sand & Piper in great shape.

Good Course

Good Course for the money. The round came with a bag of range balls. Chipping and putting greens were also very nice. The pace of play was very good and the conditions could not have been better. Great staff.

Great Layout

This is my second time playing Sandpiper Bay. I played with a very nice couple. Course conditions were great for this time of year. Due to the social distancing I did not take advantage of the concessions. The staff at the course are very nice and accommodating as I had an issue with my cart. Great value for the money and I will be returning

Great Course

Great Course, but the pace of play was a bit slow. It was a beautiful day, so that fine. Lots of people out enjoying the time outside on a great day to play golf.

Fun and challenging

Fun and challenging. Really enjoyed playing this course and feel that it was in very good condition especially the greens were quite nice.Checking in was a little awkward, with checking in through a window and all staff staying inside which I totally understand but it was a little awkward. Although there was no one at the drop off clubs area, after checking in at the window, I learned I should drop the clubs off and wait for a person to come up to take my clubs down to the carts. I’m sure it is very nice when we are not trying to abide by the COVID-19 guidelines. I do think some signs to explain things to someone who has never played there before would be helpful Don’t want to complain though I really enjoyed the course the layout and time spent there.. As a female, I did not find it too long, in fact it was just right.

Greens are VGood and fast play

Course is embracing spring well. Fareways and greens are in top condition. Rough is still short so it is easy to find your ball unless you hit the water too deep. Beautiful day, took under 4 hours.

Love this course!

We played the Sand and Piper courses this day. Both courses were in excellent condition, as usual. The courses at Sandpiper Bay are an excellent "fit" for a couple as some holes present a challenge depending on tee selection and almost all holes are "lady friendly" from the forward tees. We will continue to list theses courses among our favorites.
