Dandy in DeMotte

We've been talking about if for several years now and finally made the trip up to Sandy Pines. The entire experience was excellent! The customer service was outstanding including the world's best starter (forgive me as I cannot remember the ladies name)! The layout is a great combination of long, medium and short holes. The par 3 holes are all beautiful including one one the back over water! I loved the subtle elevation changes. I think #2 was my favorite hole on the course.

Course conditions were on point especially for early April. The sand was immaculate and the greens rolled true. Tee boxes and fairways were all well maintained.

I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and the food was on point. Get a burger! You'll love it.

Great course

Staff will meet you at the bag drop and load your clubs on the cart for you. Check in is very easy. Course is maintained very well. Hole 2 is very challenging. It seemed like we were the only foursome out on the course at times even though we saw plenty of other people. We were never rushed and never had to wait on others. $36 for 6 beers is outrageous. Good food at the 19th hole.

Fantastic Course

Got to play here last weekend and let me say—phenomenal course. Beautiful and challenging with great conditions even into the late fall! I’ve played at a number of courses around NWI including LBCC, SCCC, and a few other private clubs and this course stands up right with them!

Fantastic track out in farm country

Very nicely maintained golf course. Enjoyed the beautiful day, if played fro the proper tees there are plenty of birdie and par opportunities.

Greens rolled fast and true. Bunkers had plenty of and and plenty of rakes to keep them nice.

Overall very nice day.
