"Sand and Piper are really awful, not having been overseeded and all the fairways and tee boxes are yellow and unplayable. Bay is a better deal but fairways are thin and fortunetely, the greens are alright. Would not spend money on that course which used to be our favorite since there are so many beautiful golf courses in the region. Unfortunately, this course is removed from our list for a long,long time."

"First time playing this course and I'll be back. Fairways, greens and rough are really in great shape. Sand is also. The greens were some of the best I've played this for what will be a 4 month visit. They are fast but true. Took some getting used to re the speed. Friendly from the time you drive up. Nice place. There is a fair amount of water but it is fair."

"Sandpiper Bay is tried and true. They have removed a number of trees and the more open look at the clubhouse area is terrific. This place has the feel of a comfortable, nonstuffy private club more than a public golf course. The greens, now all bermuda, are in perfect shape. Cool nights have recently caused the greens/grain to be slower than they like them, but the course is in very good shape."

"Sandpiper Bay was the only course of the three we played that charged $25 for the fifth member of our group to drive a cart with our foursome. He could not play because of recent back surgery. Thistle and Crow Creek were more accommodating."

"The course is in really good shape, although the bunkers lack sand. The greens are smooth and quick. The fairways are fairly lush for this time of year. There is some wetness in the front of the greens, so bump and run shots are difficult in general"

"We enjoyed the whole course. It was in great shape for fall golfing. The people were all very friendly. The clubhouse was nice. We will play the course again on our next visit but hope the weather is better than 44 degrees and windy when we finish at 2 PM so we can enjoy it more."
