Joenic516

Very wet due to recent rains, but playable. Group ahead of group in front of us, threesome, had no course etiquette. Watched the girl hit several balls of tee on par three, three times, instead of going to drop zone. All this while two groups waiting at tee behind them. Right, THREE groups on par three, all at the tee box. No ranger to be found.

Best greens around

While I've played Sandpiper Bay on a fair number of occasions, playing it in a steady rain and sub-40 degree temperatures was new. Nonetheless, the course was in very good condition (despite the puddling and cart path only day). Fairways were green and inviting, with most holes wide and fairly forgiving. Greens were, as always, among the best in the area (if not THE best). We'll be back!

Good day

I enjoy this course. Play it every year. Fairways and tees in good shape. BUT. other years the greens have been excellent usually painted dormant grass. But this year it seems they overseeded them and they were bumpy. They were not horrible but I didn’t like putting on them. Disappointed because I play this course more than any other in Myrtle beach because staff is excellent course is very good and free range balls and nice practice area. Greens are normally very good but not today. The person I played with agreed with me, he played 4 weeks ago and greens were good but he didn’t like them today.

Ridiculous Condition should have been closed!

Course should have been closed. Cart path only but Was so muddy and wet you couldn't even walk to your ball. Would have quite but kept hoping it would get better.

Course is great. Greens are in great shape, but very wet fairways. Pave of play is poor at best. They need a ranger to move plays along at an acceptable pace of play. 2 hours 39 mins on Sand, 1 hour 20 mins on Piper with no other players.. Love the value of the course, just need to speed up play.

Comfortable

We teed off at 1:00 on Nov 19 and finished in 3 1/2 hours! Greens and Fairways were amazing for this late in the season. Thoroughly enjoyed the course and with 3 rotating nines it can be different whenever you go out. Granted, the weather was perfect but I would play this course again and again.

Pretty good

Course was in good shape, fairways excellent, greens excellent. Tee boxes were a little furry but had been over seeded and just need to be cut. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was compared to last time I played there 2 years ago. Staff was good.

Excellent cart staff

The cart/starter staff were excellent being it was out first time there. Pro shop was very helpful and check in process went well. The snack bar was not enforcing mask requirement, especially with large groups of players who had finished and were drinking after their round. Overall, except for the mask issue it was a good golfing experience.
