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 the slow play. In one case we had a five-some playing in front of us and three of them were drunk and couldn't play a lick of golf. It was brutal and there was no-one to speak to about it. Also, the condition of the course was pretty poor. I will not be going back there again.

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 bunkers play as rough and there are plenty of them. Not much water to be concerned about. Greenside bunkers play as sand traps and were well maintained. The greens are very large and well maintained. There are enough trees to supply some shade when needed. One upgrade I would like to see is better marking from green to tee as the layout crosses over and you get lost easily and could end up on the wrong course or skipping holes. It was not crowded and we were able to find our way after getting off track. One of the greens is well over an acre and shares with another hole. This green even tricked our Garmin for distance. A number on the flag would of helped. Some of the hole require a little local knowledge for ball placement and a second round would see an improvement in scores. A bad shot is not a disaster. A good second shot and you can save your score. On our visit there was no beverage cart but there was drinking water on each nine. Over all a very nice course for the money and all employees made you feel welcome.

Played here last week and you can see the improvement. Greens, fairway and rough were in great shape. I heard last year was tough but so far it seems the course has made a great comeback.
