Sandpiper Bay Golf & Country Club has recently earned an overall rating of 8.4 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for course condition, clubhouse grill food and customer service experience.
Designed by course architect Dan Maples, Sandpiper Bay has recently gone through some major renovations, converting all 27 greens to MiniVerde Bermuda, the best of the new ultradwarf Bermuda strains. “From the beginning one of our goals has been to build courses the players could remember,” says Maples. From being recognized as “2010 Golf Course of The Year” by Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association and “Best of Sunset Beach 2008 and 2009” by the United States Commerce Association, this course stands its ground as one of the best in the area.
Sandpiper Bay’s signature hole is No. 1 – the 562 yard par 5 that is the longest hole on the property and pinches severely on the second shot, making a par extremely difficult yet satisfying.

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.

Great shape. Awesome course. Only problem was the starters and bag attendants were totally unorganized.

The course was in excellent condition for February as were the greens. The layout is fun yet challenging and should be on everyone's play list.

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

Great geeens and fairways. VERY poor sand bunkers. Bathrooms are very outdated.

Nice course to play on. Was surprised that they provided lunch, since this was our first course to play on of the 6 that we picked. We enjoyed our golfing there.

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.
