Gorgeous Destination Course

Had an incredible time here. Fairways are slighter tighter than Mammoth Dunes but still provide ample targets. Course was in superb condition with very fast greens. Tee boxes are links style so not always flat. Holes are challenging to the eye with deceptive fairways and hidden greens and if you're not in the sand you'll be hitting from a very firm lie.

The accommodations here are super nice and very clean. So many picturesque spots. If you can go for a couple days I highly recommend. Staff was super nice and the caddies were helpful and amenable.

A Pristine Experience

Much like its sister course Mammoth Dunes, Sand Valley offers a unique golfing experience that rises to a near-spiritual level. The ambiance of the scenery and the contours of the course elicit an emotion I've rarely encountered anywhere else. To walk this course is like a 4-hour glimpse of heaven.

Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw are the perfect architects for this plot of land. The design fits so seamlessly with the terrain you'd swear it was already here when they built the resort.

Sand Valley is also the perfect compliment to Mammoth Dunes. Its features are more subtle and conservative but perhaps even more beautiful and pristine. The variety of holes and shots to play will entertain you from now through eternity. You could probably play the whole course with just a single club from your bag 14 different times and have fun each time in different ways.

The conditions are immaculate, every aspect of the course is in perfect shape and looks and plays wonderfully. That does come at a cost: at $225, there are few who would call this place a "great value" but it certainly earns its premium price tag. But perhaps playing it in the off-season would be worth the chuck of change saved.

The resort is great as well, with friendly, professional staff and great food.

Make the trek to Sand Valley, spend 4 hours walking the course then spend another 4 hours walking Mammoth Dunes and soak it all in. It will be the highlight of your year, I guarantee it.

What a time.... Go Play Sand Valley Now!

Had the opportunity to play with a group of buddies in early June for the first time. Place is immaculate and had the best time out there. Both Bandon Dunes & Cabot Links are next on my list to play! They really have made it magical at Sand Valley. Playing there again this Labor Day Weekend and staying on property for the first time. More reviews to come... I'd absolutely recommend making the drive or flight to play Sand Valley in middle-of-nowhere Wisconsin!

First timer vs. the wind

Every review and discussion I had heard going into this round lead me to believe Sand Valley, although being built first, was playing second fiddle to Mammoth Dunes. Having played Mammoth last October I thought I knew I would be able to compare the two, and let me first say that I think it's every bit as good as Mammoth. The scale seemed just as large stepping to the first tee.

The greens seemed every bit as large as Mammoth and those undulations allowed for some extreme lines for the putts. Although there appeared to be marshals out on the course they never seemed to enforce pace of play, we had to wait on almost every shot. I know it's a special round for many golfers, me included, but it's a little tough to get into a rhythm. The walk is not the easiest and the wind was really blowing, so I'm sure that played a factor in the time.

The fairways allowed for some significant roll out which allowed our group of somewhat shorter hitters to play from 6,500 easily. The greens rolled fast and true, the sheer size caused a few three putts, but it was still enjoyable from start to finish.

One nice touch that I don't see very often around central WI was the food at the turn. Instead of the traditional hot dog and hamburger, Craig's Porch was serving tacos that were absolutely delicious. The staff was incredible considering the COVID restrictions, sanitizing wipes on each tee box and the starters made sure to maintain distances throughout the staging area through the first tee. This will be a repeat course in the future, I have no doubt about it.

Top notch resort

Sand Valley is the original 18 at the Sand Valley Golf Resort and is well worth the trip to central Wisconsin. The green complexes at Sand Valley are incredibly interesting and difficult and make the course what it is. The punchbowl green on #17 is one of the most unique green complexes in the country. Tee to green is enjoyable as well. This course is more difficult than its companion course, Mammoth Dunes but equally enjoyable.

Wild ride in Wisconsin. Bold everything and sand everywhere. I loved the layout, rolling terrain and wild greens. The punch bowl 17th, wild 18th and 10th have to be seen to be believed.

If you havent been get to Sand Valley NOW

What an experience. This place is so cool . The amount of fun you can have here is endless. The course are so playable but challenging at the same time that it doesn't matter if you are a 5 handicap or 20 you will have fun. We got in on a great package deal through the WSGA played all 3 course and a night stay for $310.

The Sand Valley course is terrific. The layout the conditions are all great. To me it was just a touch behind Mammoth Dunes but not by much. 1st hole is a great hole. It is a wide open par 4 to ease you into the round. Once you get through about the first 3 then the teeth of the course starts to show. The fairways are huge greens are forgiving but if you hit ball in wrong spots or off the wrong hump and you are in trouble. #8 and #9 were my favorite holes. 8 is a super short par 3 played at 102 yds but has a false front and is up hill guarded well by bunker (which is most greens guarded by sneaking bunkers or humps and bumps). #9 is a short par 4 but is very tight with the only water on the hole property. Plays to an up hill 2 tier green. The whole course is fun we all left smiling.

Amenities at this place are nuts. The rooms are awesome the bar/restaurant is great for watching games with reasonable prices. Craig's Porch is a must it is at the Sand Valley Course, $2 beer's $3 mixers and the best taco's you will eat for $1.50 a taco. Make sure to get a Nye's Ice cream sandwich too.

A most for golf lovers!

Great links like resort

Played both courses 2x in mid September 2019. Conditions were excellent, caddies did a great job and kept pace of play moving. Courses are very deceptive and must follow caddies direction. We had a group of 8 and there’s is always one guy who thinks he knows more than the caddies and complains his caddie was giving bad reads.

We rented 2 fantastic houses each with 4 bedrooms and 4 private baths. The one disappointing aspect is only 1 restaurant on property, and it can get crowded for dinner. Food was good and nice selection on menu. Have to experience Wisconsin cheese curds.

Great trip, look forward to returning soon.

Solid on every level

Played Sand Valley in September 2019. Played Sand Valley and Mammoth Dunes but didn’t have time for the Sandbox. Both courses are amazing but Mammoth definitely stands out being just more dramatic. Incredible property and fun golf. Friend of mine popped for caddies which was very nice but not necessary. Staff is beyond friendly and the place is just a top notch golf destination. I stayed off property at a townhouse rental and saved 50% which I would do again. I put a lot of stock in the conditions of the course when I rate golf courses. This being said SV technically isn’t pristine, but the rustic, somewhat linksy, wind swept bunkers had a cool feeling. Greens were in tip top shape which is #1 in my book. At the end of the day I definitely recommend visiting this property.

Renewed appreciation for Sand Valley

I didn't fall in love with Sand Valley the first time in 2017. A couple tee shots bothered me - over or around the trees on the par-5 12th and the blind tee shot on the par-3 17th. Solving them a second time helped me appreciate the routing a little more.
This is my favorite kind of golf. The ball rolls for days and the greens are easy to hit and hard to putt. It's engaging golf but not penal - kind of the hard par/easy bogey mantra that RTJ Sr. employed.

Amazing, Fun, can't wait to go back

Played at Sand Valley opening weekend. Played Mammoth Dunes twice, Sand Valley once, and The Sandbox once. Had Mez on the bag for three 18 rounds and he was awesome. He previously caddied at Pebble for 17 years. So the weather was tough. It rained a bit the first day, windy (30+ MPH day #2 on Sand Valley) and then cold (38 degrees) the last day. Despite the weather challenges I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the courses. They were fun, fair, the sand was wet, almost like paste which was because of the wetness, greens were so much fun. I am an above average putter so I liked the cool, crazy greens. The fairways are really wide but you can miss them and if you do, you are in trouble. Mammoth has a lot of elevation change and you will be tired when you are done. Food at the turn on Mammoth is after #10 and is a guy with a cart selling hot beef sandwiches for $4 along with drinks and snacks. Very reasonably priced. Sand Valley has Craig's Porch at the turn. The Nye's ice cream sandwiches live up to the hype!! The food at the resort along with the service from everyone was 4 stars all the way. The price to stay there is a bit salty, not going sugar coat it. But the town of Wisconsin Rapids is only 20 to 25 minutes away. It's a cute town that's looks straight out of 1975. Neat downtown with a few local places to eat (Jennings Bar rocks) and numerous hotels. I am comparing Sand Valley to Streamsong. Streamsong gets a very slight edge because it's got three full sized courses and a spa. Once Sand Valley opens their third course (Sedge Valley) and a spa (hopefully) I'd give Sand Valley the edge. The food and service at Sand Valley beat out Streamsong handily. The downside to Sand Valley is it's essentially a six month out of the year place so during the season they are pretty full and making reservations month in advance is recommended. They do have a low season rate the first and last week they are open and also a shoulder season rate for the golf and lodging. Sand Valley will become the Bandon of the Midwest which makes sense given the Keiser's own both places. All I can say is just go and enjoy Sand Valley. You'll be happy that you did!!

Sand Valley - Continues to Get Better With Age

The Good: This is now the third time (and review) of Sand Valley. It continues to get better with age! The Coore & Crenshaw course is a rugged, sandy masterpiece of playable, yet intimidating golf that gives golfers plenty of options and challenges along the way. Fabulously conditioned despite being in its second year and huge, large greens that already putt true. The layout is fair with huge fairways and a strong variety of tough holes sprinkled with short Par 3's and drivable Par 4's to improve your confidence. The Par 3's may be the best collection I've ever played. Practice facility is excellent with full driving range and putting green. Superb service in place with full caddie program and friendly staff. First class clubhouse with extremely nice restaurant and bar, as well as awesome pro shop.

The Bad: Greens are borderline unfair in some areas due to being crowned and all falloff to devilish bunkers. Perhaps a little overpriced at $200+ for a new resort. Luckily I played in October and paid only $105!

The Verdict: Sand Valley is well on its way to being a Top 3 Wisconsin course and one of the best resort courses in the Midwest. While not quite as good as its younger brother Mammoth Dunes, I contend that the most memorable, individual holes are on Sand Valley. An extremely fun, playable track that will only get better with time. A truly memorable golfing experience that will only get better with age.

Best Hole(s): The closing holes on each 9 are great, but there is something about the punchbowl green on the long uphill Par 3 17th that is just magical. It is the most unique green complex I've ever played.

Sand Valley Review

Two courses: Sand Valley and Mammouth and a par 3. We enjoyed Mammouth better, but it is pretty easy. The courses are walking only, which is great. Recommend a caddie since there are blind shots and rolling greens and will make for a better experience. Links golf with very little in the way of hazards. Relatively easy for good players. Very generous fairways and large greens makes this a good place for a group with a wide variety of skills. Courses are still new, greens and fairways are hard. Consider playing longer tees since the ball rolls out. Also, there is sand everyone, but none of which is considered a hazard. They don't seem to bother to rake the sand so I ended up in footprints a couple of times.
Overall, overpriced for the quality of golf and the service received. You need to shuttle down to the practice range and you are expected to lug your clubs on and off the shuttle. I was with my wife and the shuttle drivers don't move from their seat to help out.
We found the buildings on grounds to be cold and uninviting. The style is rustic prairie meets modern. The food was good and reasonably priced and wait staff was great, but the atmosphere was lacking. Although the courses are very female friendly, this place caters to men and guy getaways.
Pro shop staff could be a lot nicer. Clothes are over priced.
We play resort courses all over the US and internationally. Sand Valley acts a little haughty considering it is in the middle of nowhere. You think they would be happy to see you. But the place is very busy and seems to be a big success for the owners.

Lot of fun, enjoyable... bad caddie situation

Lots of fun and lots of sand. Yes, you'll most likely spend time in the sand, but not too difficult to get out and plenty of room for misses. The caddie situation sucked! My buddy and I each wanted a caddie and ended up with one caddie carrying two bags. He was never in the right place, couldn't read the greens and spent more time talking about all the people he had caddied for in the past rather than helping us. Ridiculous waste of money. We cancelled out caddie for out next day round at Mammoth Dunes.

A third of course employing temp greens

There is a tremendous amount of buzz surrounding Sand Valley right now, with the success of The Sandbox, the resort’s short course, and the opening of Mammoth Dunes, the resort’s second course, in a couple of weeks. A harsh Spring, however, has dealt a severe blow to the Sand Valley course.

One-third of the holes (Nos. 1, 2, 4, 5, 8 and 11) employed temporary greens. And I must say that the regular greens did not look close to returning to the rotation. The course is currently offering 18-hole play at the nine-hole rate, due to the temporary greens. The fairways were thin and sandy.

If you are planning a trip here in the next two weeks, be advised that you will want to call ahead and see how the course is coming along.

I must say, however, that my first trip to Sand Valley was only mildly tainted by the aforementioned conditioning. I could easily tell what makes SV one of the Best New Courses of 2017 and why it will undoubtedly continue to soar up all the course ranking lists.

This is not a tournament golf course. In this regard, it reminded me a lot of Gamble Sands in Washington. Coore and Crenshaw designed SV to be exceedingly playable for all skill levels. Fairways are beyond generous, and though I found the bunkers and waste areas numerous times off the tee, I did not think they were overly penal. This is definitely a second-shot golf course.

There is a ton of construction going on at the facility. More lodging is being created to inevitably handle the flood of players descending once Mammoth is complete. Currently, Mammoth is offering 13-hole preview play.

My only criticism is that the course was “out” of yardage/course guides. As a first-timer walking with my own bag, a book would have been helpful, though it was still mostly navigable without too much issue. A resort of this caliber, however, should never run out of anything in the pro shop. It would have been nice to have.

In conclusion, despite the limitations, I was still easily able to see why there is so much acclaim being garnered by Sand Valley, and look forward to returning in the future to see how it matures with the addition of Mammoth.

Beautifully designed course, caddie issue

My brother and I stopped to play Sand Valley on the way home to Chicago after being in northern Wisconsin for the weekend. The service and overall "feel" of the resort is very comparable to Bandon Dunes. Because it is very new there is still construction going on but you can see that in the near future it will be the Bandon Dunes of the Midwest.

We only played the Sand Valley course and I must say the views and layout are stunning! We couldn't stop taking pictures from every tee box. I would love to play it again later in the year when the greens are repaired and rolling at true speed.

The one thing that did frustrate me though was the level of knowledge or lack thereof my caddie had of the course and golf in general. On the second hole my "A" caddie informed me that it was his FIRST time actually being out on the course and that we would learn it together because it was also my first time being there. He also had no idea how to give me a yardage, didn't know how to work his rangefinder or how to step off yardages from nearby sprinkler heads. Managing this course by yourself is very difficult as there are many blind shots into greens and from tee box areas. I am not by any means high maintenance when it comes to caddies and I am not upset at my caddie at all (he was a really nice and pleasant guy) but I am upset at the caddie director as obviously there isn't any sort of training. I would be totally fine if this was a junior caddie. But how can you send out an "A" caddie who has never even stepped foot on the course and doesn't know how to give yardage?

Carry your own bag!

I played the course last year and enjoyed it very much. I walked, carried my own bag, and had a wonderful time.
This year, going back I attempted to take advantage of some of the amenities, including the caddie service.
Bad move. The first thing the caddie did was to begin going through my bag, without asking, to unload things and make it lighter. Since I carry my bag, and had done so a few days prior, I know it was not unreasonably heavy.
When I catch him, I offer to lighten the load on my own.
The only personal thing left on my bag was a towel. It was lost. Upon returning home and noticing it is missing, I called the course.
I had to leave a message and after two days, and no call back, I had to call them again. Then, instead of getting a call back from a staff member, or the caddie master, I get a text on my personal phone from the caddie.
Towel lost and still no appropriate response from Sand Valley.
Very unprofessionally handled in my opinion.
Also, the course conditions were too difficult for the average player, and probably nearly unplayable for all but single digit handicappers.
It is a beautiful peace of land though, but best enjoyed walking and carrying your own bag.

Sequel better than the originnal

This visit was preview play so I'm going to get too picky on course conditions, caddie knowledge, etc as everyone is still learning.
If the first 9 holes are any indication, it will be better than Sand Valley. The property is massive and the name is fitting. Like Sand Valley, you can play a longer tee box as the course plays shorter than the advertised yardages due to the elevated tees, firm fairways and wind depending on the day. When my wife and I played, the wind picked up between 15-25 mph.
I played well that day. Where the caddie told me to hit it, I actually hit it. The massive fairways give multiple options off the tee to make the hole longer or shorter for your approach. If you hit the speed slot, your drive went 30-40 yards longer and nothing more than a wedge into firm, fast greens. The tees are set so every type of player can take advantage of these options. If you're playing well, you can score. If you're not, you will find the only hazard known at Mammoth Dunes, sand. You have to manage your misses on some holes as anything off the green will require a fine-tuned short game to get up and down. Certain holes offer you the chance to play links-style golf and keep it on the ground or close to it.
I cannot wait to play the drivable par 4 14th. It's not included in preview play but just seeing it makes you want to play it more than once.
When having fun on a golf course is not just what you make of it but what the course itself provides, you're in for a memorable experience and Mammoth Dunes is exactly that. I cannot wait to play the full 18.
There is plenty of love for Sand Valley right now and it shows in the staff and the service. The food in the clubhouse was awesome. Walleye tacos anyone? If you haven't tried the rosemary, parmesan fries at the clubhouse you must and can thank me later. .
