Good play for the price

$42 with golf now discount so was happy for the price. The fairways and greens were in great shape but the traps hadn’t been raked in a long time and need sand added.

Very mediocre experience.

Greens had been aerated within past couple of weeks. They were bumpy, slow and inconsistent from one green to the next. Tee boxes needed mowed. Bunkers were in need of edging. Carts had coolers but we had to ask for ice. They had NO cups or bottles of water. Luckily I brought a cup and a couple of bottles of water. No towels in cart. No tees in cart. No on course beverage service. Went to snack bar at turn and they only had hot dogs, no other sandwiches even though there was a menu listing various other choices. Very lacking in amenities based on a resort type course. Funniest thing of the day was the cart attendant telling us that the course was in great condition.

Sea Trail Rees Jones Course in August

An okay experience. Played at just before 8am on a Wednesday. Starters were unfriendly. No beverage cart service on a hot day and no mention of this by either the starters or the check-in staff in the golf shop. Was playing as a single, matched up with another golfer which was fine and expected -- went off of #10. Pace was okay but not great - waiting on every tee and approach shot, not unexpected when playing as a twosome. Layout was good -- challenging at times. Course conditions were okay but greens were rather slow and a couple of course features just felt a bit unattended to (bunkers, tees and rough). Overall an average round of golf.

Ground Keepers need a refresher course on details

The biggest issue I had was the mowers. They mowed with a very close cut that left heavy globs of grass on the fairway and greens.
This course was recommended as a primer course, Just not up to the billing

Could be friendlier

Fun course and was in great shape. The greens are a little thin but typical to most beach courses I’ve played. Could definitely step up the “friendly” customer service from the bag drop to the pro shop check in. Best service I received was from the bartender.

Great Course

Love playing all 3 courses at Sea Trail, and have for nearly 30 years. Had a great day on the course. Conditions were very good, and pace (for a beach course) was great (4:12) for us. The only negative was that the staff seemed a little bit annoyed that they were so busy that they were doubling-teeing that day. They didn’t seem the least bit interested in engaging in conversation with the players. Overall, great place to play golf!

Great Course for the Money.

Greens were in good shape. Course was challenging but fair and in good shape. Saw numerous baby alligators. I will definitely be playing here again.

Nice layout, meh conditions

We liked the layout, with lots of movement to the fairways and some fun tee shots. The greens are cool, with different tiers and slopes.
Greens were nice medium-fast speeds and consistent.

Aside from greens, conditioning was a mixed bag. Fairways were OK. Rough very mixed (though we recognize it’s spring shoulder season). Tee boxes were quite poor - really chopped up, long grass and in a lot of cases, no flat spots.

Some BIG alligators in lakes and some...aggressive turtles!

Overall a good experience

We knew they were sending groups off of both 9s we finished our front nine and had to wait to start the back nine until the back nine groups went off. We have never had to do that before. Groups coming off the front have had priority. That slowed our back nine down tremendously. We did not see a group behind us on the front nine at all. Cannot understand the reasons.
