    When it comes to municipal golf courses, you’ll be hard pressed to find one in better condition and with a friendlier staff than Sandridge Golf Club in Vero Beach, FL. I mentioned to Director of Golf Bela Nagy that I had played private facilities that were in worse condition and his response to me was, “Yeah, we hear that all the time.” Sandridge has been recognized as one of Florida’s finest public golf facilities, and with good reason. Golf course designer Ron Garl, design both courses.

    Aesthetically, these Ron Garl layouts are pleasing, and require a multitude of shots if you are going to play them well. Garl has made great use of sand and water, which are both abundant in Florida. Each of the courses – The Dunes and The Lakes – has its own island hole; on the Dunes, it’s the Par 3, 6th hole and on the Lakes Course, it’s the par 4, 14th. Be sure to have a couple extra balls with you.

    The Dunes course opened in April, 1987 and plays 6,968 yards from the back tee, with a course rating of 72.6 and a slope of 129. At 6,114 yards and a slope of 123, the Blue Tees will give most golfers all the can handle. Most of the ladies will find the Red Tees at 4,967 a good test of their skills and abilities.

    The land that the Dunes Course is built on an old ridge that runs up the East Coast of Florida and was once used for mining operations. Water comes into play on about 9 of the holes and can really figure into your scoring on about 4 or 5. Waste bunkers are prevalent on a number of holes as well, so your best bet is to keep it in the fairway.

    According to Nagy, the facility did over 115,000 rounds last year. During the peak season (March and April) it’s not uncommon for them to process over 500 rounds a day. With all that traffic, you would expect deplorable conditions, however the maintenance staff at Sandridge keeps the course in excellent shape. There are a lot of pock marks on the greens, especially on the Dunes which I suspect gets a little more play because of its length, marks that would be negated if players just took their time and repaired their ball marks. Nonetheless, these marks don’t really hinder your putting efforts, they just look out of place. They allow walking which, given the layout, is not as taxing as one might think in the Florida heat.

    Another thing I noticed about Sandridge is their pro shop; they carry everything golf from hats, shoes, socks, balls and gloves to headcovers, clubs, bags and putters. And what’s best is that they are competitively priced with the big box retailers.

    If you’re in the Vero Beach area, you need to get out and play Sandridge and see for yourself the fine conditioning of the course and how down home friendly the staff is. For more information, visit them online at www.sandridgegc.com.
