I love playing this course but they have lost the greens. I will come back to play but I must say for now I will spend my money where we can put on grass not painted dirt!

This course has seen better days. Very little grass on the greens and general course maintenance has been ignored. The layout of this course was interesting and reminded me of one I played frequently (Island West G&CC) in the Hilton Head area.

We played in early April so course had winter damage. It was cart path only as there had been a major rainstorm the night before. It was cold & windy. We have played here before & it is a great course.

Nice course, weather had been dry, so the fairway and greens where in rough shape, but with some rain it would be great.

There was little grass on any of the greens. One 9 was closed for “green repair”. They need to shut down for two months until they can recover or sod their greens and then reopen.

The course and tee time booking resources should notify customers of issues like these prior to confirming tee times. I would assume, like most other customers, that a course with green/cart fees greater than $35 would have grass on their greens, not painted sand.

Before we went out the starter told us that the greens on the course were in good shape. After playing 3 holes on the sand course then we knew that he had not told us the truth. Most of the greens were mostly dirt painted green. When we played the other nine those greens were even worse then the first nine. When we finished we tried to talk with the guy working behind the counter and he did not want to hear what I had to say. I run a golf course in NC and I have told my employees to always tell the truth about the course condition or if someone is not happen with something lets make it right. We were not offered a refund or raincheck to come back when the course was in better shape. The employee behind the counter did nothing to make us feel better about our bad experience. I had my 17 years old son with me and I felt bad that he had to see these conditions and also the bad customer service at Sandpiper bay.

Course in fair conditions. Greens were not so good mostly painted sand. A few with grass. I think the ice storm hurt the greens as other courses have this problem. I played here earlier and did not have this problem

I was very disappointed with this course.I have played it in the past and conditions were good. I read the reviews and couldn't believe it. Now I realize why I only paid $19. Truthfully it was worth $5. Total waster of time. NO Grass on the fairways and no grass on the greens.
