Nice course

Nice course, not extremely difficult, but there are a few tough holes. The ONLY issue I had was the cart paths that have not be repaved since WWII. Not sure how much they spend on golf cart repairs, but I but it would be cut in half if they repaved the cart paths.

Beautiful Day for Golf

We purchased our second home at Sea Trail almost two years ago. We LOVE all three golf courses! All are different and fun to play.
The staff at the clubhouse are so very friendly- they go the extra mile!
Clubhouse does need some updating.

Great deal

It was a great deal on TeeOff.com wish I knew that they had over seated and did not allow carts in the fairway. Pace of play was good on the front nine but slowed up on the back because they were doing double tees. Good value for the money

Neighborhood golf

Ok course. Not great condition. Decent layout with houses bordering several holes. Slow and inconsistent greens. Nice fairways. Hairy tee boxes due to overseeding. Bunkers need work too. The fabric that holds the sand was showing in several spots. Pace of play was decent. 4 1/2 hours. Staff was friendly but, slow service. They seemed understaffed. Saw the snack/drink cart once (on the 9th hole)

The course has potential to be really good. Just needs attention/money. My guess is that this place is struggling like others during COVID.

tough trek

although yardage looks short, it is a Par 70 with Long challenging par 4's. Mid range golfers don't be embarrassed to play the whites as many are over 400 yards. Toughest from the Blue's was 450 yard par 4 which second shot had to carry water 410.

Great course

This a great course in great condition. Everyone was nice until I found out I was playing in a threesome that I did not know. I asked for a separate cart to be distanced and found I had to pay $20 more. Well I played the Maples course last week in a threesome and I was given a cart of my own. Make up your rules as you go. Sounds like nascar.

Terrible customer service. Poor communication. Staff and website was not truthful about the course, the greens and the condition of the course

Stay away.from this course Very disappointing course to play
Poorly run facility
Pace of play is 6 hrs or more on a weekday
Facilities and courses are going downhill
One of the worst values for golf I’ve ever had

Ok, not great!

The course lay out was not bad, but the course needed to be mowed bad. It was not in very good shape and definitely not worth the price.

Great Golf Experience

Beautiful Course...challenging, but fair. A bit of everything, including water hazards and long fairways.
A bit wet in places.
Beware of the Gators...

Very challenging and well maintained

We had a Hot Deal which kept price reasonable. Great layout. Keep the ball left off tee on 18 and use an extra club on most approach shots. Enjoy.
