“Beautiful Course”

Sea Trail - Byrd Course
Ranked #10 of 20 things to do in Sunset Beach
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: The Willard Byrd Course requires a distinctively different approach thanks to a constricting tree line, challenging greenside bunkering, and lakes ranging from 14-20 acres. Strategically placed tee shots are essential for successful play on Byrd's undulating greens of Champions Bermuda. A picturesque and scenic 18th hole between two beautiful ponds finishes the course at the Jones-Byrd Clubhouse. The course measures 6,740 yards from the blue tees; 6,251 yards from the white tees; 5,561 yards from the gold tees; and 4,621 yards from the red tees.

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 took care of us for lunch was fantastic and we all had a nice meal. There is nothing memorable about this course.

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

The Byrd Course at Sea Trail is a comfortable course -- challenging but not so challenging that you need to have an abundance of replacement balls. Although it was the dreaded "cart path only" when we played, the course was still reasonably easy to manage. Some of the houses are a wee bit close to the fairway so the OB can appear to be right on the course itself; but, I didn't have to introduce myself to a homeowner for breaking a window. Course is in very good condition in spite of the rain -- some casual water but the sand traps (and there are many) were well drained. Bag Drop guys and counter guys were very friendly and helpful. My wife and I literally had the course to ourselves as we were allowed to go off of the back to avoid the foursomes on the front. The club house looked like it was having a Sunday brunch but we were too focused on our golf.

We "walked on" to this course without a tee time at noon at a reasonable price and were not disappointed. The course is challenging enough for the average golfer but not abusive. You need to watch for the thieving crows on the first couple of holes as one picked a wrapped Kit Kat bar out of our golf cart and flew away. We were a bit disappointed in the early closing of the restaurant/bar.
