Very rude attendant at bag drop...got the impression he was't happy that we showed up for our 3:25 tee time. Very poor playing conditions on front nine with some improvement on back side. Greens are in extremely poor shape and fairways were not much better. There are plenty of better options within ten to fifteen minutes of Sea Trails.

I have only been playing for a year and found this course very playable. The staff at the bag drop was very nice and personable, the grounds were nicely kept. We had a photo taken of our foursome at the 1st tee, which is a nice momento. There were some challenging holes, but none that gave me too difficult a... More

We began our golf trip here with an afternoon round. Play was slow - just under 5 hours. As with some other courses in this area, that seems to be the norm which I find unacceptable. The rangers (and the pro) should make make a better effort to speed up play. The course was OK but did not compare to... More

We played this course 2 years ago much to the chargrin of our Golf Package provider. The course was in receivership and well in decent condition had a ways to go, as well as the staff were not very friendly. What a difference 2 years make. We dropped into the course early this week to have a look because the... More

The new owner of Sea Trail is upgrading the facilities and golf courses. The sand bunkers on the Jones golf course have been revised and repaired, and the course is in excellent condition. The other two Sea Trail courses - Byrd & Maples will still need bunker maintenance, but both are also in excellent condition. According to the pro shop... More

New owner redoing all bunkers and drainage. Course is in great shape with plenty of wildlife. If your game is bad the scenery more than makes up for it. Photographer's delight.

I usually play this courses a couple times a year. It is challenging for all levels. Many women find it too long for their taste. It has a nice selection of challenges with sand, water and distance included in the holes. I highly recommend this course.
