Sandpiper Bay Golf and Country Club is a fun 27-hole facility located in Sunset Beach, NC. It recently was named the Golf Course of the Year by the Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association.
The Don Maples-designed course has gone through a three- year-long upgrade that includes the installation of Miniverde Bermuda grass on all three of the 9 hole layouts: The Bay, The Piper and The Sand. Also included in the renewal of the facility are the repaving of the cart paths, some tree removal, and the refurbishing of the clubhouse.
Sandpiper was not mentioned in the golf section of our book Myrtle Beach: A Guide to South Carolina’s Grand Strand published by Channel Lake in the 2010 Tourist Town® series. Limited space and the broad subject matter of the guidebook led us to review fewer than the total number of courses in the Myrtle Beach area.
Sandpiper is certainly a fine choice for a golfer on the north end of the beach area. Your comments are welcome here. We’ll be happy to see what you think about the course.
