Sandpiper Golf Club is situated amidst a centuries-old forest of Douglas fir along the banks of the Harrison River. Mt Woodside provides the backdrop for the course, lending not only scenic views but also a challenging terrain. The golf course features tricky slopes and contours but there are also more player-friendly features including wide-open fairways that make the course more approachable for beginners. Despite the soft undulations, the course is a pleasurable walk and the immaculate greens are another nice feature. The layout combines open holes that play along the river with holes that are tucked away in the forest, providing an interesting variety of challenges. The par-5 15th hole is Sandpiper Golf Club's signature both for its scenery and level of difficulty. A large footprint supposedly left by Sasquatch is the trademark feature that guards the green on this hole.
