The Short Course @ Sand Creek

The 6-hole short course was designed to help novice players gain a greater proficiency of the game before taking on the regulation size courses. Some general information about the course is as follows:

  • The course is open to the public, adults, as well as juniors.
  • The estimated time to play 6 holes is approximately 1 hour.
  • Each group of golfers should have an ADULT (someone 18 years of age or older) along with them in order to play.
  • Individuals who average over 150 yards with a driver, IRONS ONLY – NO WOODS. If you are a divot taker, please use the mats.
  • The short course is open to the public seven days a week, 8am to dusk, EXCEPT Monday mornings during Junior Day. NOTE: These hours are subject to change without notice due to time needed for course maintenance, etc. We recommend that you contact the Sandcreek Golf Shop at 612-8115 to confirm the short course hours of operation before you go out and play!
