Sad

The course is in a very poor state . The greens, faiways, sand traps, and tee boxes are a mess. What is going on with Sea Trail?

Don't waste your time

Should have requested refund. Played here years ago and it was a very decent course to play. Played in Myrtle Beach area for nearly 45 years , seems like they have given up on this course. It Truely is in bad condition.

Disappointed.

My parents are property owners for 26 years and were one of the original families that lived on this course. I have played the Maples Course at least once or twice a year over those 26 years. It was in the poorest condition I have ever witnessed. Greens were slow and shaggy and some appeared to have Poa auunua type weeds on them, even though there has been plenty of rain lately.. Grass and weeds overgrown around the hazards. It was just really disappointing to see this course go downhill, when it was once outstanding. Please bring it back to the conditions I had grown to love.

Old School Golf Fun

Course was in great shape, greens were reasonably fast and overall look of the layout was well maintained. Starters were very friendly and easy to work with. I played as a single and they paired me with a group. Carts in great shape. A few bare spots here and there but nothing major. I enjoyed playing a mature course without many of the tricks on newer courses.

Highly recommend this course

Played early morning with little to no wait time and actually got on the first tee a little early. Course was in excellent shape with the fairways as well as the greens were both very nice. Can not think of a negative thing during the round other than a couple wayward shots that had nothing to do with the round. Will definitely be back on our next trip!

Great round of golf

Pretty solid course for the money. Overall not a difficult course but fun to play. Staff was great - not much of the snack bar or other food was available when we played or would have been a bit better - but made it work
