Not in great condition although they keep the greens nice. Fairways nothing to write home about.

Good value

For the money this course is solid. Some water drainage issues in the fairway and along the cart path. The rough is very rough, but besides that it plays well. Greens are in great shape.

Always a Joy

The Sandpiper is a great course for all handicaps, but has few holes to keep you on your toes. I always enjoy playing there and the course is always in great shape.

Great day on the course

I played the Oaks and Palms nines earlier today with a friend and we had a very good time. The course is in great shape and the greens roiled true. I am actually going to play there again tomorrow. I live about 20 minutes away so this will be a course I'll be back to play a lot.

Lot of Fun

The course is fun for hackers and serious golfers too. The greens are in good shape with enough bunkers and water to make it challenging. On the other hand, wide-open fairways allows for everyone to get into the game.

An enjoyable day

Played Lakes and Palms courses. Lake was in rather poor condition after the heavy rains this week. Greens are rather slow and very difficult to put. Palms was much better and greens rolled well. Fairways on both were good. Restaurant is back open. Very little play and pace was escellent for a Saturday wiith good weather

Dissatisfied

This course is a goat track. Don’t waste your time or money. There were only 9 holes open. You were instructed to play them twice. All day more and more groups were sent off the first tee until we had 4 groups per hole. The round took 5 hours plus. The conditions were poor at best. This is a one and done for sure. Leave this course for those who live inside the gated community.

Nice day, beautiful course

The course was good. Some place were very soft and wet. This course definitely need more directional signs. Some signs were broken or not at all available. For a first-time player at this particular course it was sometime frustrating. Overall I thoroughly enjoy my day on this course.. I would come back. The price was right.

Could use a little TLC

My wife and mostly enjoyed our round. However, we had a hard time finding the tees and the course was generally not well marked. My biggest issue is that the sand traps had not been raked and there were no rakes in them. This made the play very inconsistent. Otherwise the course was in reasonably good shape.
