About

Par 72
Length 6638
Slope 132
Rating 72.2
Type Public
The Sturgeon River runs alongside Sandpiper Country Club, which sits on the outskirts of Alberta. The river warns you of the challenges to come on this 18-hole layout. The golf course features water on all but one hole and they're not the only hazards you'll come across. Strategically placed bunkers lurk along many of the greensides and fairways. The layout begins with a links-style front nine that is slightly more player friendly than the back nine, which is cut through mature forests with sheltering trees lining the fairways. Sandpiper Country Club's final five holes are some of the Edmonton area's toughest finishers. The golf course offers enough variety of keep the round interesting but the manageable 6,700-yard length and its forgiving nature give it appeal for players of all skill levels.

You get what you pay for

It's one of the more expensive courses in the area but not by much. The greens are always top notch. I always look forward to playing here.

Thanksgiving Golf!

I'm playing more and more golf and always wanted to play on Thanksgiving Day. The conditions were excellent, the price was right and the pace of play was fantastic! I am very pleased with Sandpiper and the deal offered via Golf Now! Highly Recommend!

Nice Golf Course.

Pace of play was a little slow on that day probably due to a small group tournament ahead of us. However, two group in front of us is playing six players which slow thing down tremendously. Other than that I will play this course again.

Sandpiper is in good shape!

Only thing wrong was the slow play on a few holes which caused us not to get 18 holes in before dark.

Interesting and challenging

Course starts out rather blandly, but gets better with more interesting holes, more mature trees and plenty of challenging water and sand.

Nice course, multiple practice areas, many doglegs.

We got lucky and got an immense deal for Sandpiper on golfnow.. It's a nice course being part of the Country Club Tour family of courses in the Edmonton area. Sandpiper has a driving range, chipping area and putting area to practice/warm up on. The snack shop is separate from that of the club house which made things quite convenient. Staff were friendly and kept a casual atmosphere. Saw the cart service 3-4 times and our foursome appreciated that. There were many dogleg-left holes which I personally enjoyed.
