Golf was good but stay needs work

We stayed at the resort for one week with golf planned most days. It is early in the season and clearly they are working hard at getting the courses ready for the busy times... read more

We stayed at the resort for one week with golf planned most days. It is early in the season and clearly they are working hard at getting the courses ready for the busy times. The Byrd was weat, the Jones was great even though they are working as redoing the cart paths and the Maples is great for this time... More

I was met at the bag drop and greeted warmly. After checking in, I had to walk to the range to hit just a few balls before teeing off. Since I like to walk, this was not a big deal. I played the white tees, so the course wasn't too long for my abilities. The greens were fast and in... More

The third best course at Sea Trail. The greens are very good and has a very interesting layout with some water holes and good trapping. It has some challenge but it all not beat you down. Cart paths are not good but renovation hopefully soon.

I just returned from a "guys" week (16 of us). This was the 3rd of 3 days of golf at this property. The course layout was great, unfortunately the condition of this and the other 2 courses is so bad that it over shadows what can clearly be seen as a once great golf property. The greens might have been... More

This resort went through a lengthy bankruptcy before it was purchased by a Chinese businessman. The Jones course had the bunkers reworked, but the bunkers on the Maples and Byrd courses are hard pan and rain washed. Greens and fairways on all courses are in fair shape, but all of the cart paths are in shambles and in desperate need... More

I have be coming to play Sea Trails for 25 years. I have stayed on property and visited when staying at SunSet beach. This facility has had its share of financial problems over the years. All 3 courses have different fun layouts. I played the Byrd this week and had a tee time for the Jones.Sea Trails has new ownership... More

Tricky with lots of bunkers. Shorter than Maples and Jones courses. Fast greens and plenty of wildlife to watch while waiting for your shot. Overseeded fairways.

Not for the beginner golfer! Great course, lovely views but make sure to be at your best. Everyone working there was very pleasant and freindly. If you love golf you need to play here.

We played the Byrd Course after a lousy experience in the morning at the Maples Course. The Byrd was much better. It was a decent layout and properly maintained. The Guys in the pro shop were a little rude when one member of our group inquired if they sold cigars (most pro shops do) but they dont. The Girl that... More

Good distance from Myrtle Beach - course is definitely showing its age....would not recommend this (or its partner course) as a desired golf location....
