About Sea Trail Golf Club - Jones Course (Sunset Beach, NC)

Named after its designer, acclaimed golf course architect Rees Jones (son of legendary Robert Trent Jones), the Sea Trail Jones Golf Course was the second of Sea Trail Resorts’ trio of great golf courses, opening in 1990 and measuring 6,761 yards from the back tees.

A more traditional and straightforward course than its two sister courses, it features wide fairways, plenty of waste and pot bunkers, mounding, and greens that are large and elevated. Usually regarded as the most difficult of the three, the course is as beautiful as it is challenging.

It’s also a course that women golfers like with the ladies tees playing a tad under 5,000 yards. Amenities include a driving range, putting green, pro shop and restaurant.

The course was in good shape to have as much rain as it had on Friday. The people seemed to be in a hurry to leave and aggravated that we were playing even though we paid and they were open.

I wished that the starters/bag loaders were better employees. On multiple days they gave some serious attitude and clearly didn't like their jobs. It felt far less like a resort and more like we were treated as a nuisance for being there. This type of behavior shouldn't be exhibited by any employee let alone the first people we encounter each day.

Majority of staff were nice one bag drop person was not so awesome. Courtesy is king. And a marshall drove past the 5-some in front of us did not say a word to them and then did not get slow enough for us to say anything. Assumed he was going to stop and ask if we were okay with the 5-some.

We enjoyed the course and staff exceptionally. Being African American Im especially sensitive to rudeness and misbehavior one of the bag attendees rudely told me I had to move my car from the bag drop. We had just unloaded no one was waiting could easily have been a blemish on the staff review. Fortunately he was an exception rather than the rule. Superb staff and accommodations.

Great course. My only feedback is that given the clubhouse was pretty much closed from covid policies it would have been great to atleast have a beverage cart on site driving around. Almost died of thirst out there Inwould have paid a 100 for a bottle of water.

What a fun course and the cart guys and staff were EXTREMELY great! No doubt that they appreciate golfers just as much as we appreciated them. Course was great and the turtles were just as aggressive as some of our drives.....but harmless. We played the Byrd course for the afternoon replay and had a blast hitting the ball around the perfectly manicured course. Greens on both courses were perfect.
