Byrd Course

Like the layout. The tee boxes, fairways and greens are in bad shape. No grass on the tee boxes and the greens needed to be cut! One greeting staff at the golf cart area was very rude.

Sea Trail Byrd course was extremely dry and ground was very hard. Greens were cut long, very dry and extremely inconsistent in speed. Course layout was nice and very enjoyable, just needs water or rain to thicken, soften and green it up!

Very friendly bag staff! They welcomed us women and really went out of their way to make sure we were good.

As a 14 handicap, the tee box choice to get the right yardage was not good. It was either really short (red) or a little long (gold). We played red since we did not know the course and it was very short!

The greens on the front were horrible, they looked like a green we used to have in my backyard! Very disappointed on the greens.

An Average Option

With so many courses available in the Myrtle Beach area, this course would rate as average. The greens were quite "bumpy" and most of the tee boxes were thin on grass. Small food service area as well. Friendly staff and good pace of play. Not a bad course for what we paid, but many better quality courses in this area.

SAVE YOUR MONEY!

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE! I've seen nicer dog tracks. Greens are patchy and lousy, fairways in terrible shape. The owner of all three courses is apparently some foreign guy who hasn't spent a dime on the courses. Whatever you read on other reviews is FALSE - stay away from these courses - PLEASE.

I had booked this and another Sea Trails course for the following week. I couldn't cancel those reservations fast enough

This course needs improvement

We should have paid $20 more and played a much better course. The price should be $30 to ride. The cart paths had many deep potholes that could easily be filled in. Many roots made it very bumpy. The main issue was the greens were very bumpy worse than courses that had just air rated their greens. Had to have a 2-putt rule due the various types of grass on the greens. If you were just off the fairway the grass was mowed to the dirt. Many places off the fairway had no grass, so you had to stay on the fairway to have grass. I have played many municipal courses in better shape for $20 and was felt that I had wasted my time and money at this course. We did love the pace of play and the cart crew. No one in front and no one pushing us. We played mid-morning.

Several greens had been sanded making them less pleasant, this reduced rating from 5 to 4. The price was a little expensive given this as well
