Used cart

Cart was dirty

I thought it was going to be a great round of golf until I noticed the scorecard had been used. I started looking around the cart and noticed trash from it's previous use. I was reluctant to use the towels after that. No sand in the sand bottles. Fingerprints on the steering wheel. In short the cart was dirty and hadn't been cleaned or tidied up at all.

I told them about it when I turned the cart in and I got a shrug of the shoulders and a I'll let them know about it.

All things considered, don't think I'll be back.

Disappointed

I was expecting a better overall course both in terms of layout and condition for a resort course. Greens fee was higher than it should be for the condition it was in. On the plus side, the cart was the nicest I’ve ever ridden in for a round of golf.

Nice course

It was a bit pricey but overall the course is very nice. The sand is very hard packed which I’m not used to but other than that it was great

Nice course

Course is a mix of beauty and muddy cart paths. Greens are very challenging. Every fairway shot takes a divot

Post course punching

Course had been punched a week or so before; greens were extremely slow and there was no roll on the fairways. Overall the course appeared to be average maintained, not considering the punching. A decent layout overall.

Great Day at Sea Palms

We had a great round of golf at Sea Palms. Weather was a little warm but there was a breeze. Even though there was a aeration alert on your site we thought the greens were good and putted very well. Staff was welcoming and Friendly. Highly recommend this course.
