Four of us played. The course has huge sand bunkers, hence the name. Several of the bunkers were damaged by weather and not re-sanded. Greens were in fine condition. A good course with a few challenging holes. They don't have a refreshment cart in circulation. When we got to the half way hut, there was no one present to provide... More

Course is great, is always well maintained and they do a decent job of keeping the pace of play moving. 27 hole course so you have 3 nines and that helps to spread the golfers out. Starters are always really nice and in general everyone is great here.

Played all 3 nines at Sand Barrens and loved it. From cart guys to clubhouse and starter, everyone treated our group of 12 great!

A little pricey, it's a challenging but playable course (South & West nines played). Tricky greens, pretty fast, never really got the breaks down.

The good. I thought it was a beautiful course, well maintained, very good condition. I love the undulating fairways and greens. Did not need the staff fir anything which is a good thing. They were nice, friendly and helpful. The bad. It is in the middle of nowhere. About 40 minutes from AC hotels.

Started off on wrong foot when they neglected to tell us 9 holes were closed when we booked. Course was in poor condition compared to others in area. Members we rude when group of three caught our group of 4. No water to drink on course and no beverage cart. Greens recently sanded(which they also did not mention) and had... More

I played Sand Barrens twice in the past 2 weeks with my son and both times it was a bad experience. In both cases we left before completing 18 holes. In fact, the second time we played there it took 3 hours to complete 10 holes. We didn't see a ranger on the course either time which obviously contributed to... More

This review is really in two parts. The course itself is not great and in my opinion, overpriced. That said, the driving range is well maintained (hitting off grass!) and reasonably priced. There are cheaper options for a round nearby.

Decent course and great pace of play. Lots of sand to penalize errant shots. Local liquor rules prohibit beer purchase if your tee time was not made at least 3 days in advance.

Played this course in the afternoon in mid week for under $40.00. Pro shop and clubhouse were very appealing. We played the south and north course as this is a 27 hole layout. Tee boxes were level and free of weeds. The fairways were cut low and were hard and fast with absolutely no weeds. The rough was about 4".Fairway... More
