Tricky course

It is a tricky course to play because all the greens are elevated and they are deceptively fast with a lot of undulation. It's very important to keep the ball short of the flags on most holes because if you go past the whole you just might roll off the green. There is water on several holes that are hidden from view from fairways and tees.

Nice Course But...

Playing conditions were good but it seems that Rangers are needed to keep play moving. Players ahead are not following proper golf etiquette. Taking too much time to hit a ball, conversing instead of playing 4 or more hours for 18 here is not pleasant.

Great course

I appreciate all the hard work and effort in bringing this course back to life. It’s is a very nice course with varying degrees of challenge.
The staff work hard to keep the place in great condition and the remodel of the bar/restaurant is awesome. The food and drinks just add to the experience.
Thanks and we’ll be back.

Rough fairways

Played in great weather. I want to make sure to mention the wonderfully friendly staff. Great service. My concerns are with the conditions of the fairways. Pretty rough conditions in some areas, which made for interesting ball positions. The greens, on the other hand, were very good. Lots of unraked sand traps. I wouldn't recommend this course for better players.

Hi, Jim. Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recover the fairways. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game, and we will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Links of Sandpiper. We hope to see you again soon.

Great condition; hard work has paid off

For anyone who's been playing Sandpiper for years like us, you've seen a lot. Course conditions in the past have been fair to bad. But Sandpiper did a multiyear renovation, and it's finally paying off. The greens were spectacular today; I've never seen them better. The fairways were very good as well; soft underfoot and free of weeds. The gentleman at the pro shop was friendly and professional. Nicely done, Sandpiper!

Disappointing course alterations

We had a fun day and a pleasant experience at Links of Sandpiper, but we cannot recommend the course. The greens were good, and the first ten holes were perfectly fine, but the back nine is a mess. It’s okay and even fun to have a couple quirky holes on a course, but par fours where you have to hit 7-iron off the tee, and par fives where you can’t hit driver off the tee and your second shot isn’t a 9-iron are just silly. They,re trying to squeeze in moreover new homes, and they have chopped the back nine to pieces as a result. Plus there are a half dozen little ponds stuck in odd places to make landing spaces very small, narrow, and awkward. More than half the holes on the back, especially from #14 on, are just stupid. Not a good course at all, and a very sad way to finish the layout.
