Great course for all levels

Have played Sand Hills many times over the years. By far the best greens in the immediate area. Fairways are pretty firm this year, but it’s been quite dry & hit this summer...I’ll take the extra 30 yard roll off the tee :)

I’ll be back again!

Great day, great friends.

Enjoyed a fantastic day at Sand Hills with the wife and another couple. Course played good for everyone. A little slow on the front nine. But picked up on the back nine. Just made it in as the horn rang and missed the rain.

First Time Playing

Pretty simple course

I'll start by saying I'm a pretty average golfer. I did 18 in 2 1/2 hours. Very few trees, fairways were mostly brown but atleast the greens were in good shape. The tee offs I found sort of lumpy. I could rarely get even flat footing. There's a few pat 4s that I wish weren't. Either add 40 yards and make them legit par 4 or take off 30 to 40 and make then tough par 3s. I shouldn't be able to drive the green on par 4s, I did that on 3 holes. Also, because there's so few trees and most of the grass is brown, it was a little difficult at times to determine what fairway I should be hitting at. The staff were super friendly. I didn't get any food so I can't comment on that. I'd recommend this course to someone who wants to get out for a quick round and isn't too worried about esthetics.

Slow pace

Had a few players more interested in drinking heavy and being loud then playing golf and keep up pace of play. An easy under 4hr round had taken over 4 and a half hours to play. A lot of long wait at tees. The course was dry but the greens were in good shape. Staff very friendly.

great day of golf

We received a great rate from Golfnow. Easy and quick check in. Course in fair condition. Great for my wife as the ladies' tees made it an easier course for her to play. Men's tees moderate but blue tees would be a better challenge.

Good time all around

Just finished a 3 1/2 hour round. Course is in excellent condition. Ground is firm, but will allow for a divot. Greens are firm and fast. Mostly true except, a couple had crooked holes that resulted in some deflection at the cup. Course is shorter, 5538 yards at the tips. Some holes definitely require precision on approach, not just run up the front. Many greens have some slope which will penalize a poor approach shot. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The clubhouse has a well stocked bar and a great deck for drinks after the round. My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed this course. I will probably be back tomorrow!

Great Value and enjoyable golf

We arrived early and because the tees were open we were permitted to tee off early, we zipped around in three hours. Course conditions are very good. Staff are beyond friendly. Accommodating, efficient, and very pleasant.

Will definitely book again!

Course is going down hill

Played this course years ago and decided to go play it again today. Course was super wet but you cant fault anyone except for mother nature for that. The course needs some weed treatment as it is getting overun. They cut the course prior to my round but the tee box grass was still way to long. Clubhouse is getting run down and walkway out front and around clubhouse are overgrown with weeds. Flower beds havent been touched for some time theoughout the course. This used to be a really enjoyable short track but has really gone down hill the last few years.

General feelings

This course was a favorite in the past but has now degraded to a less than desirable...The fairways and rough sections are poorly cut, making my round tiring and not as enjoyable.
