Sandiway Golf Club has been used in final qualifying for The Open golf championship and is a venue for regional amateur finals.
Sandiway is the home of Blakemere Village, which has shops set in and around an Edwardian stable block with cobbled courtyard. The centre has an indoor and outdoor children's play area.
Sandiway has cross-roads where the A49 crosses the A556 at the Shell service station.
