Where2Golf says: 

Sand Valley Golf Resort: Following on from the immensely successful 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. With its first course by Bill Coore & Ben Crenshaw now open, a second by David McLay Kidd is already under construction.

Sand Valley Golf Resort pays homage to the great "heathland" courses located south and west of London. Built on sandy soil with low lying heathland vegetation like scrubby oaks and pines, heather, bearberry, blueberry, kinnikinnick and more, Sand Valley's courses will emulate the likes of Sunningdale, Swinley Forest, Walton Heath, Hankley Common, St. George's Hill and the "three Ws" (Woking, Worplesdon and West Hill).

Stay & Play at Sand Valley:
On-site accommodation available in the Sand Valley Lodges & Cottages, see details in Where2Stay section below.

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!

A second course at Sand Valley, designed by David McLay Kidd, is set to open in 2018.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
