About Sands Gold

Welcome to one of the very few reversible courses in the United States! Our Sands 9 Gold 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 Gold) and then flipped on a different day to play the opposite direction (Sands Black).

The Gold Course starts near the driving range and proceeds counterclockwise around the routing and ending near the Pro Shop. The Gold Course is the shorter of the two 9 courses and plays to a Par 34 at 2,868 yards from the farthest tees.

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 Gold Course is hole #3. The hole plays as a risk-reward hole at only 305 yards, however, the golfer must choose which side of the split fairway with water in the middle to play off the tee. The right side provides a better angle on to the green but has a very narrow fairway with 2 bunkers to capture any drives that may go too long. The left side is an easier tee shot to a wider fairway, but it is a much more difficult blind approach shot over a green-side bunker.

Sands Gold 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 GOLD Course.
