First time visiting this area. Stayed at Sea Trail played this course, considering the weather they have had the past 2 months, I would rate the condition at very good, I am sure with favorable weather conditions it plays excellent. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

A fun course that is interesting and challenging for a weekend golfer like me, without being too frustrating. It never seems to be backed up, so you can move along at a good pace. We played on a Saturday and there was no cart service, but with water on the course, and food at the clubhouse, that wasn't really a... More

A good Dan Maples course where he used the terrain and built a great course. It is not as difficult as the Jones course but very enjoyable. There is some very challenging water holes and is well trapped. "GO PLAY"

I just returned from a "guys" week (16 of us). This was the 2nd 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

Nothing outstanding but the price was right and can recommend this course because they are not crowded. Enjoy

For the most part this course is laid out well. Holes #1,7 & 13 are somewhat quirky-short, severe dogleg and just plain unusual. Course has great par 5's and two par 4's over 400 yards from the white tees. Conditions could be improved with some tender loving care; tress, fairways and roughs especially. Greens putted at a consistent speed. A... More

Dan Maples did an excellent job in laying out this course. Like the Byrd and Jones, plenty of wildlife to photograph. Tricky par 3's.

Played here as part of my golf trip on Sept 30 2013. Course was in terrible shape. We played four other courses in the area including the Byrd Course on the same property. The greens were a mess, There was cut grass everywhere and it was poorly manicured. It was like playing a beat up muni course that you pay... More

Played here on July 16, 2013. Greens were mowed very long and slow slow slow. The staff told us they were "stressed" which does not make sense sense given the cool summer we've had so far. When repairing divots, the grass just came right up - almost no root system. Overall a nice layout and fun to play but the... More
