Ground Keepers need a refresher course on details

The biggest issue I had was the mowers. They mowed with a very close cut that left heavy globs of grass on the fairway and greens.
This course was recommended as a primer course, Just not up to the billing

Nestled at the end of the Sea Trail the staff greeted me with a smile and set the mood for the day. The greens are well maintained but if I had to be critical the cart paths are due for an upgrade.. I’d highly recommend playing this course.

Course could badly use some TLC. The layout was pretty redundant and not particularly interesting. Greens were a little fuzzy but rolled true. Pace of play was great.

Great layout

The course has a great layout. Greens rolled true, fairways were in great shape. Pace of play was quick. But Tee boxes were in desperate need of a cut. Some tee boxes had weeds that were over a foot tall.

The most discouraging part of playing this course were the greens. They played like they were made out of Velcro and very inconsistent. Took the fun out of putting.

Save your money and kidneys

This once great course has fallen into disrepair and the staff doesn't seem to care. The clubhouse was empty, the bar/restaurant doesn't open, no cart attendants and worst of all were the cart paths. It was mind blowing how bad they were.

Could be friendlier

Fun course and was in great shape. The greens are a little thin but typical to most beach courses I’ve played. Could definitely step up the “friendly” customer service from the bag drop to the pro shop check in. Best service I received was from the bartender.

Great Course

Love playing all 3 courses at Sea Trail, and have for nearly 30 years. Had a great day on the course. Conditions were very good, and pace (for a beach course) was great (4:12) for us. The only negative was that the staff seemed a little bit annoyed that they were so busy that they were doubling-teeing that day. They didn’t seem the least bit interested in engaging in conversation with the players. Overall, great place to play golf!

Resort 18 at SeaTrail

Decided to play the Maples course at SeaTrail after reading reviews on GolfNow. Was anticipating very slow play on a weekend, but pace was actually very good. Design and layout of course is challenging and keeps you interested. Greens are Bent grass, and were in very poor shape. Understand that this course is closed during the heat of summer because of bent grass and I can see why. Also big drawbacks are the cart paths and general lack of maintenance of the fairways. You can readily see that when this course was built, they took the cheap route and used blacktop for the cart paths rather than cement. Now, after decades of use,. the cart paths of course are in TERRIBLE shape. Broken, cracked, and in many cases missing chunks of cart paths are on every hole. As for the fairways, you can see they are only doing the bare minimum to keep the bermuda grass alive. Edges of all fairways are dying and are mud which is creeping slowly but surely inwards.

Enjoy the "Maples" twists and turns, but when not maintained, its just sad. Valiant to have Bent greens, but realistically, they just don't work. Need to replace greens with championship bermuda, replace or recover cart paths, and sod much of the fairways. Great setting, with many very nice homes on fairways which are in fact better maintained than the golf course!.

Since golf and fresh air was the escape for the pandemic, not sure what SeaTrail did during the past year. I live in a golf community in NC, and our club made money hand over fist during the past year.

This course needs ~$5M to bring it up to just acceptable level. Sad, but I'm sure they won't spend it.
