Sandford Springs Golf Course overview
The 27 holes at Sandford Springs are made up of 3 varying 9 hole layouts. ‘The Park’ course is regarded as the least demanding nine of the three loops. The signature 9th hole, a short, downhill par 4 requiring an accurate long iron off the tee followed by a solid pitch to a green protected by two lakes is it not for the faint-hearted. However, with a big drive, it is possible to carry the 270 yards over the water.
With mature trees creating a natural challenge, the aptly named ‘The Wood’ course is arguably the toughest of the three nines. The signature hole is the 13th, a testing dogleg left. Your tee shot falls into a chasm in front of you, with the second shot requiring an accurate pitch over water.
As the name might imply, water is the key feature of ‘The Lakes’ course. Five of the nine holes bring the wet stuff into play. The 21st is a long par 3 requiring particular attention and skill. The hole requires an accurate long iron to reach a well-guarded green surrounded by water.
The signature hole on the Park course is the downward-sloping, par 4 9th. It features a dog leg going left over a lake protecting the green.
The Woods course features a standout hole in its 355 yard 13th which includes both water and bunker hazards.
The Lakes course is notoriously ruthless and hosts its signature hole on the 21st, following a challenging opening 3 holes. Lakes and woodland surround the course which requires careful consideration of play.

The first 18 holes, the Park and Woods courses, were opened in 1991 by golfing legends Nick Faldo and Bernard Gallacher. The remaining 9 holes of the Lakes course were constructed in the early 1990's.
