About Sands Black

Welcome to one of the very few reversible courses in the United States! Our Sands 9 Black Course is an innovative reversible 9-hole course designed by renowned Golf Course Architect John Sanford (Sanford Golf Design). The course is set up to be played in one direction (Sands Black) and then flipped on a different day to play the opposite direction (Sands Gold).

The Black Course starts near the Pro Shop, proceeds clockwise around the routing, and ends near the driving range. The Black Course is the more challenging and longer course of the two 9’s and plays to a Par 35 at 3,368 yards from the farthest tees and offers two very long Par 3’s.

There are five sets of tees to accommodate players of all skill levels when playing the course. Tee #1 is the longest yardage, while tee #5 provides the short yardage around the course.

Signature Hole

The signature hole on the Black Course is hole #7. It overlooks the airport and plays at 427 yards from the #1 tee (farthest tee). The hole plays to a tight fairway with water on the left and a fairway bunker on the right.

The approach shot will be a mid to long iron into one of the most undulating greens on the course with two green-side bunkers and out of bounds on the left.

Sands Black Schedule

Our reversible course will alternate between its two directions (Sands Black and Sands Gold) on Mondays, every week. Below is the upcoming schedule for the SANDS BLACK Course.
