Pond next to Gold #2 on Sailfish Sands Golf Course


It is hereby acknowledged that LIGHTNING IS A SEVERE HAZARD THAT MUST BE VIEWED SERIOUSLY. The County will not provide weather warnings of any kind prior to or during inclement weather. In the event of thunder or lightning, it is the golfer’s own responsibility to discontinue play when, in his or her opinion, a danger from lightning exists. If there is a perceived risk of lightning, play MUST be discontinued, and golfers MUST leave the course. The County is not responsible for your safety while using the Facility, and IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO REMOVE YOURSELF FROM ANY SITUATION YOU DEEM DANGEROUS AND SEEK SHELTER FROM LIGHTNING IN THE CLUBHOUSE OR THE NEAREST RESTROOM FACILITY. Please note that golf carts do not provide protection from lightning, and golfers must not seek shelter under trees.

Pace of Play

It is our goal at Sailfish Sands Golf Course to improve the pace of play on both golf courses during the winter season and make sure golfers have an enjoyable experience. Please help us by playing ready golf and by keeping up with the group in front of you.

The pace of play will be monitored in the Pro Shop, and players will be notified when they have fallen behind the pace of play. If the players cannot close the gap in front of them, they may be asked by the ranger to let others behind them play through.

If players still cannot maintain the pace of play after two notifications, they may be asked to come back at a time when the course is not as busy and they can better enjoy their golfing experience.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please email us SailfishSands@martin.fl.us.


At Sailfish Sands Golf Course, you can reserve your tee times up to 7 days in advance. Tee time reservations can be made online or by calling the Pro Shop at (772) 320-4653. You are expected to cancel your reservation a minimum of 24 hours in advance. Any cancellations made within 24 hours of the scheduled tee time will be considered a "No-Show" and will not be refunded.

  • No Show Fee: The golfer who made the reservation will incur a fee of $20.00 per player or the applicable rate of the tee time, whichever is lower, and will be charged for every golfer in their reservation who does not check-in prior to their assigned tee time.
  • "No-Shows" result in reservation privileges being suspended.
  • Repeat offenders will have their reservation privileges revoked.

A credit card is required to make a reservation. When booking over the phone, the credit card used to make the reservation will remain on hold and only be charged at check-in or in the case of a no-show without notice of cancellation provided 24 hours before the scheduled tee time. When booking online, the credit card will be charged at the time the reservation is made. 

The No-Show policy also applies to group reservations. If you make a reservation for a foursome, we will expect the arrival of a foursome, not a threesome or twosome. Please call as soon as possible if you or anyone in your group is not going to be able to play.

If you need to cancel or change a reservation, please call the Pro Shop at (772) 320-4653.


Walking is allowed all day on the Sands 9 Course only. This will be strictly enforced. No walking allowed on the Sailfish 18 Course.

Dress Code

Appropriate golf attire is required. Profanity and nude or semi-nude pictures printed on shirts are considered inappropriate attire.  Players must have a shirt on at all times. No tank tops, flip flops, or athletic shorts allowed.


Beer and wine may be purchased in the Pro Shop bar by those 21 and older. State Law prohibits outside alcoholic beverages being brought onto the premise of a licensed establishment; therefore, outside beverages or coolers are not permitted on the golf course. 


Rates are subject to change without notice during special events, holidays and other special circumstances.
