Where2Golf says: 

Sand Valley Resort (Mammoth Dunes course): Following on from the immense success of Bandon Dunes in Oregon, and Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs in Nova Scotia, Sand Valley is another exciting development from the Mike Keiser stable. Located on over 1,700 acres of tumbling sand dunes, Sand Valley brings the drama and playing style of British "heathland" golf to the heartland of America. The first layout here, the Sand Valley course, was crafted by Bill Coore & Ben Crenshaw. It now has a stablemate, the Mammoth Dunes layout, designed by David McLay-Kidd.

Did you know?

Mike Keiser, co-founder of greeting card giant Recycled Paper Greetings, fell in love with the links golf courses of the British Isles. He decided these coastal duneland courses, much visited by North American golfers, needed to be brought much closer to home. And so Bandon Dunes was created - an out of the way golfer's paradise, built alongside the Pacific Ocean, amongst impressive Oregon dunes.

Sand Valley continues the British-theme, but this time inspired by inland "heathland" courses. The earliest heathland courses were built amongst the sandhills of a vast open heath that lay to the west of London. The courses gave London golfers in the 1890s and early 1900s a playing experience not too dissimilar from playing seaside links golf ... all that was missing was the sea!
