I grew up playing on this course. It is always a great course to play on. Given the weather we have had here in Florida a lot of the water hazards are drying up but other than that the course is in good shape.

Florida is in the middle of a drought, so of course there is little to no water. I have, however, played more expensive courses that were less maintained that Sandpiper. The new owners are doing a great job getting this course up to speed and already the greens and tee boxes are in fine shape. In addition, the course is a challengesometimes in length, sometimes just the layout. Either way, it is well worth the green fees.

This course was relatively inexpensive, but overall a huge disappointment. Course was poorly maintained. Scorecard showed much water, but there was actually very appeared dried up & was now weeds. It's in a development with very little scenery. We understood that the course may have recently been sold, and assumed that some of the problems may have stemmed from that. The new owners will have to work hard & make many improvements to compete with some of the other courses nearby. In it's current we would not recommend it to our friends.

Rough maintenance, and mostly boring course design in an over-55 development setting. OK if you can't find tee times anywhere else.
