A description of Sandpiper Bay

Sandpiper Bay was designed by noted golf course designer, Dan Maples, in order to challenge amateur golfers with a really fun layout. The club is actually three separate nine-hole courses, named Sand, Piper and Bay, respectively. The tees have enough variety to challenge both amateurs and seasoned veterans alike. 

There are many beautiful design elements at the Sandpiper Bay golf course. There are more than 50 beautifully sculpted bunkers that challenge golfers to keep it in the fairway. More than 40 acres of lakes are on the property, and many of them are incorporated into the design of the course. The grass on the greens is a very beautiful Bermuda variety called Mini Verde. It is very fast and consistent, and people in Myrtle Beach will travel to Sandpiper Bay just to have the chance to experience putting on these greens. 

Players can mix and match from among the three courses to create an 18-hole round. The most popular way to do this is to play Sand and Piper courses together. Some may enjoy playing all 27 holes, but those who wish to do so may need a whole day to get it done. 

Book this course with our East Coast Combo Golf Package.

This was the most disappointing course we played in Myrtle Beach. It had rained hard the prior night and the course was unplayable. Weren't even offered the opportunity for a rain check or any other compensation. We were drenched in mud and sand by the 3rd hole. The staff was not particularly friendly either, especially the starter, who sent a late (and very slow playing) foursome out in front of our threesome who were ready at our allocated tee time. Would NOT play this course again under any conditions, there are just too many nicer, friendly courses in the area.

Course was in pretty good shape. Overall a decent course for Myrtle Beach area. Got a bad taste in my mouth over this course though. Will not play it again. They called my group (only 2 of us) off the range about 25 minutes before our tee time and made us go ahead and start round. We purposefully got there early in order to warm up as we had just driven 8 hours the evening before and our tee time was at 8:03. So my buddy ran to the car real quick to get his phone he left to charge which took about 30 seconds, then we both hit two balls off the first tee and before we could even get off the first tee the started came by and yelled at us to pick up pace because their tee boxes were filled and we took way too much time. Mind you no one was behind us waiting to tee off and they started us about 20-25 minutes before our scheduled tee time. So, between that and the course just being avg. for Myrtle I would say I wont play that course again.

Love this course. Always in good condition. Had booked tee times at 8:57 and 2:12. Did not get off the afternoon round until 3:12 because they were out of carts. Very unorganized in bag drop area. Pace of play was slow in morning round. Around 5 hours. Poorest experience of week but would still go back.
