Sand Valley resort as a whole is an absolutely fantastic experience. Great golf vibe, excellent facilities, very friendly staff, and dedicated caddies. As for the golf course, a classic Coore/Crenshaw collaboration. Somewhat minimalist design but plenty of Hidden contours to be wary of. Take a caddie! Only complaint I had on the course was the par 3 fifth hole. My tee shot handed about 7 feet right of a middle left pin. I then watched from the tee as my ball slowly roll off the green and down the fairway finishing probably 25 yards from where it landed. My caddie advised The course had recently spent a considerable sum renovating that green to make it more playable. They should try again. But all the other holes were very good. And the best part-don’t miss the ice cream sandwich’s!
