“At times, while playing Sedge Valley, one can almost sense how Lewis & Clark may have felt uncovering the American wilderness centuries ago.”


Local Knowledge

Don’t let the yardage on the scorecard fool you. In general, there are a lot of holes at Sedge Valley where your angle of approach dramatically changes the options you have into the green. The sixth hole is a great example of this. If you can drive it into the right spot left of center in the fairway, you could roll your second shot right onto the green. It is possible—but also very difficult and risky. If you go too far left, you’ll be left with a pitch over a bunker 40 yards short. However, the right edge of the green provides no backstop. Most holes offer optionality off the tee.

Sedge Valley is my favorite course at Sand Valley because…

“Fantastic course, might be my new favorite course at @sandvalleygolf.”


First timer pro tips:

The finishing holes at Sedge Valley are inspired by iconic Scottish links tracks like North Berwick, Prestwick, and the Old Course at St. Andrews designed to help settle bets down the stretch. Specifically, 17 is one of the hardest holes on the course and 18 is one of the easiest holes. So just like the Home of Golf, on Sedge Valley, you’ll likely win the hole with a par on 17, and you’ll likely lose the hole with a par on 18.

What makes Sedge Valley unique?

There are three par fours on the course that are shorter than 300 yards, and none of them are a walk in the park. They could become very challenging very quickly if you’re in the wrong position or if you bite off more than you might be capable of.

Yolk with Doak 41: Sedge Valley

—The Fried Egg

Did you know?

Sedge Valley, the newest course at Sand Valley, is not new to Michael and Chris Keiser. The land that Tom Doak’s design occupies was the first to be cleared when work got underway at Sand Valley Resort.

“I’ve always been drawn to that part of the property,” Michael says. “It’s got wonderful movement and character. In some ways I thought it was the best site of all.”

The Keisers ultimately chose to build Sand Valley (designed by Coore & Crenshaw), Mammoth Dunes (created by David McLay-Kidd), and the Sandbox (Sand Valley’s 17-hole short course) first.
