Good at $10 less

The course is okay, the front nine we played (Oaks) was in moderately good shape. The greens were a little bushy and on the slow side compared to the practice greens. Most of the greens are VERY small... likely to gradually growing in over the years.
The back nine (Lakes) was a bit rough. Most of the tees playing from the back were all weeds- while the forward tees had lots of signs of play- sandy spots. Fairways are mostly weeds and intrusive grasses, not golf course grass.
Fun to get out and Play early and not have to wait at all, but at $34 plus tax.. I think we overpaid given the courses conditions.

The course was in impeccable shape

My first time in a few months back to sandpiper even though I live about 5-10 minutes away my home course is Cypress. But I must give the folks at sandpiper there kudos. The pace of play was amazing I was a single playing behind a foursome and barely had a short wait on most of the holes. Total round time was 3 hours 7 minutes. The greens were in great shape and were rolling true. Great job to the greenskeeper and the staff can't wait to play the next round

Sandy

Course was being aerated, therefore sand covered the greens and plugs all over the place. We were held up at almost every hole. It was hot and muggy and there was no water on the course. May try the course one more time when no improvements are being made.
The clubhouse person, CJ, was more than nice and the golf store looked lovely.

Super Slow Pace of Play/No Marshal

Very slow pace of play. No marshal on the course to keep pace playing at a decent speed...on the back nine there were SEVERAL TIMES where we had 2-3 foursomes backed up and NO MARSHAL. This has become the Norm at Sandpiper...it's affordable and close, but beginning to wonder if the convenience is worth the break of rhythm in pace of play

Very Florida Course

Nice place and nice people but doesn’t suit me well. Fairway turf is sparse and sandy. Lots of water hazards and bunkers so you need to play target golf. Greens are nice....small and tricky. A course you need to learn. It beat me up pretty bad....lol.

Lots of sand

The architect apparently has an interest in the sand wedges because you will go through a lot of them after your round. Even the restaurant is named Bunkers.
But I think they should rename the restaurant "Sirens" because the fire rescue station is on the premises and the vehicles are forever going out carting the old people in Sun City off to the hospital or wherever their final destination is.
