At 6,750 yards from the long tees, the Sea Trail Byrd Course isn’t necessarily a long course, but it is one that requires well thought out shots and the ability to make them. The third 18-hole course to be completed at Sea Trail, this Willard Byrd design features reasonably wide fairways perfect for accurate hitters to use their driver on most holes.
Fairway bunkers are strategically placed so they come into play on just about every hole. And while the design employs a good deal of mounding, most of it tends to help keep shots in the fairway rather than creating obstacles.
There are more than a few doglegs on the course, some with close to 90-degree turns offering skilled players the chance to slice a few strokes. Manmade ponds, including some as large as 20 acres, dot the course but are only in play on a few holes.
The course got new greens in 2008 and since they’ve been much more of a challenge. The course is known not only for providing a great round of golf but for being one of the Grand Strand’s most scenic. Amenities include a golf shop, driving range, putting green and an excellent restaurant.

Rained out - did not play
Course is in rough shape. Basically no maintenance.
The condition of the greens was not good. Too many bare spots or rough spots.
All good. Service very good
Course was in poor condition. The fringe was like the rough. Lots of weeds along with bare patches of missing or dead grass. Very difficult to putt on the greens due to poor condition. I would not recommend or want to ay on this course again.
This is not the Sea Trails that I have played in the past. Both courses were in horrible shape. It seems that none to very little maintenance has been done.
Crabgrass actually growing over holes, it was hard to believe this was the Sea Trails I have played for 40 years. We actually quit after 4 holes the course was in such bad shape
Fairways were mowed a bit narrow. Greens rolled well. Cart paths were a bit rough, lots of broken pavement ruts to be careful not hitting while driving.
Same as for Maples
The course has really gone downhill over the years.
