Attraction details
Owner description: The Maples Course is a traditional southern course framed by twisted ancient oaks and tall Carolina pines. The medium-length, accuracy-demanding course features five holes that wind along the scenic Calabash Creek, with elaborate landscaping, and undulating greens. Still regarded as one of Maples finest, this is a beautiful par 72 course, with A1/A4 blended Bent grass greens. The course is also peppered with numerous waste bunkers, one of which extends the full length of a fairway. The course measures 6,797 yards from the blue tees; 6,330 yards from the white tees; 6,035 yards from the gold tees; and 5,110 yards from the red tees.

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 greens really are not worth playing.

My husband made a hole in one on the 5th hole. First time ever! The course was well maintained and he enjoyed playing there.

We found the course to be in very nice shape today. The price was right at $35 a person plus 3 cans of food. We have never been offered that special before but it was a great deal. The staff was friendly and helpful. The course was very busy, but we were still able to play in 4 hours. We enjoyed it so much that we plan to go back to play another Sea Trail course tomorrow. The other courses in the area were considerably more expensive

This is a really fun course to play. Tough enough to feel like a great accomplishment but open enough to not be painful to play. Everyone should try it. You'll come back, for sure.

Played this course today for $25...and sadly that was too much money. The layout is actually pretty decent but the course is in terrible condition. It seems like there has been little to no maintenance recently. The greens and fairways were not too bad but everything else was dried up, there was no grass around the tee boxes(or even on a few), the bunkers looked liked they had never been raked, mulch hasnt been added for years, and half of the tee shots were obstructed by overhanging limbs. If they put some money into the course, it could actually be a decent short course. Agree that there are many better options around.
