The Jones course has some great holes. The course is always well maintained and the greens tend to be the best at Sea Trail imho. Don't get discouraged on #1. It's a long, straight, tight par 4 that plays to a 4.5 average for me. Enjoy the newly paved cart paths from last summer.

This is a great course that is well maintained and so close to a lot of the North Carolina beaches that are close to the South Carolina border. My son and I really enjoyed it.

My Wife and I played the Jones course at Sea Trail. I really enjoyed this course. It was really a fun course to play. A few negatives, some of the tee boxes were in pretty rough shape. The greens also were patchy in places but they really rolled well. If the course conditions was in better shape, this would be... More

All three of the courses at Sea Trail (Jones, Byrd & Maples) are in great shape this season. Tee to greens have been well cared for by the new owners. Rates are less tha you find on the "Grand Strand" Courses but the value is here in Brunswick County. Since we moved to the area with get to see these... More

I played the Jones course last winter and found it to be a fun layout. They were in the middle of renovating the bunkers, which were by the way in terrible shape and in dire need of rebuilding. Only one hole had bunkers not yet renovated, and three others were in the course of renovation. There were a wide variety... More

As I live on this course I have first hand knowledge of the care for this course. The greens are usually in very nice condition. The sandt raps have had a complete makeover and are excellent. The fairways are fairly generous. Complaints are that the course does not drain well in wet conditions and the cart paths are in terrrible... More

Reese Jones did a fine job on one of his early layouts. All of the many traps have been completely renovated and are excellent. The greens ar bent which can have a little problem in July and August but are good the rest of the year. A very respected course where a US Open qualifier has been played. GO PLAY.
