Course Reviews


A classic old course

Sandy Hollow Golf Course offers all players an opportunity to play on one course and have fun, regardless of ability level. The first noticeable feature of Sandy Hollow is the rolling terrain. Sand is found on most holes, as indicated by the name. The bunkers are well taken care of, giving golfers the ability hit good shots while not being expert bunker players.

The course offers golfers with the opportunity to score well. Its relatively short length and unprotected landing areas, compared to today’s newer courses, make it possible to hit driver and short irons. However, make a mistake and the recovery shot will test your creativity and ball striking skills to salvage the hole. Most every hole is lined on both sides with a thin line of tall, majestic trees.

Its signature hole is number nine. A 591 yard par five that heads straight back to the clubhouse. Mix that hole with 220 and 191 yard par threes and your long game will be tested a couple times during the day. Then step up to the 270 yard par four tenth and you have the chance to drive the green, or play it safe and leave yourself with a full wedge from the fairway.

The one negative on the course is the greens. Your best bet is to play this course before the middle of July. Just as the leaves turn every fall, the greens at Sandy Hollow will take a turn for the worse late every summer. Decent tee boxes, nice fairways, playable yet present rough and maintained bunkers cant make up for the greens that will keep you guessing which way they’ll bounce the ball.
