About Sand Valley
Located in central Wisconsin, in Town of Rome, Sand Valley is situated in the pre-historic lake bottom in the sand barren region of the state. The development currently covers 9,000 acres of previously wooded timber land, which is being resorted to its natural dunes land state. Sand Valley opened its first course and 50 overnight rooms in 2017, followed by the opening of Mammoth Dunes by David Kidd and the Sandbox, a 17-hole short course by Coore & Crenshaw in May of 2018. In addition to three award winning golf courses, the property currently entails: 100 room (keys) 168 beds of overnight accommodations, an intimate housing development, food and beverage outlets, an indoor fitness center, hiking trails, grass tennis courts and other outdoor activities.
Sand Valley is the original course to the property routed on a 320-acre footprint. The course possesses 70 acres of a fine fescue variety for tees and fairways. The greens consist of modern creeping bentgrass varieties while covering 4.5 acres of the course.
