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.

Much Improved!

I've played here a number if times in past years, but this was the first time since it was re-worked. One if the original three 9 hole courses was abandoned and the remaining two have been greatly improved. Fairways are not as thin as before and the greens are in much better shape. Many bunkers have been taken out and the golf carts are of much better quality.

The staff was friendly and helpful. I'll be returning

Potential unmet

This course has the opportunity to be something wonderful, but unfortunately there is so much left to be desired. The staff is great, golf carts and service are excellent. The course was not in great shape, and it looked like greens were recently aerated. Unfortunately, the cost of the course didn’t match to the quality. Much higher quality courses within a short drive for similar prices.

Staff was very friendly and helpful and allowed us to play as a twosome with a great pace of play. Course was in very good condition and was a good challenge from the back tees, especially the Par 3’s.
We got a really good deal via GolfNow, but I would play here again at its regular fee too.

Greens were bad

After the recent renovation, the greens were excellent. Yesterday, though, they were substandard. They were very thin, areas around holes overused, 1nd recent fertilization with large granules. Hope they fix this soon.
