Tom Doak just posted a picture of Sandpiper and something about how the pond on 18 can't be touched for environmental reasons, and continued... "So I'm working to design around this space entirely, because am NOT ending an oceanfront golf course with a par-3 over a pond!"

YOU GUYS... Is Tom Doak redesigning Sandpiper???

How exciting! (Although I'm sure it'll be $400 afterward.)

Ok, so Tom replied to me on GolfClubAtlas, where we're both members with some info.

He submitted a plan to Sandpiper back in 2009 and sounds like they are finally interested in potentially moving forward with it. He said now comes a more detailed plan, and following that would likely be several years of obtaining necessary permits.

So no imminent changes taking place, but possibly on the horizon, long-term.

Still exciting!

Great- positive news!

I think Tom Doak is a master golf designer who has now been around long enough as been regarded for many of his good work.

This would be the greatest thing ever! Sandpiper is basically 2-3 great holes then completely forgettable. It would be fine if it was a muni in the middle of a city, but with that land, give me something more!

I love the layout at Sandpiper. One of my favs. Would love to change up hole 18 though, hate ending on a par 3.
