Situated along the Sturgeon River, Sandpiper Golf & Country Club is just a few minutes north of Edmonton. The course begins with an open, links-style front nine while the back nine is carved from mature forests. The characteristic that both nines share is the abundance of water. A series of creeks, lakes, and ponds come into play on all but one hole on the golf course. To add to the level of difficulty, there are also strategically placed bunkers to contend with. They can be found lurking along the bentgrass greens, which are touted by many locals as being some of the best in the area. Sandpiper Golf & Country Club's back nine is more challenging than the front, mainly due to the final five holes, which are as scenic as they are tough.
