After playing Diamondback the day before, this was a VERY welcome change! This course was in good condition, had a great layout, was routed through a nice development, had wildlife and was well maintained. Due to rains it was pretty wet in some of the fairways and the greens were a bit shaggy (and slow) because they couldn't cut them but all in all we have nothing but good things to say!

I booked on golfnow. I then read reviews. I was nervous about playing here based on the reviews. Granted the reviews were from 2013. I really enjoyed the course and layout. Some real nice holes and forgiving fairways which worked out well for one of my first rounds of the season. The greens needed to be cut for they were long. They did roll nicely though. I assure you that the past less than favorable reviews have been addressed. I had a nice golf experience. There are so many courses to play in the area so I try to play a different one from time to time. I think it's a $40 course.

The course was in excellent condition. Tee boxes, fairways,greens and sand traps could not be in any better shape. It was a wonderful course to play and I highly recommend to all when in the area.

Everyone in our group enjoyed the course. For this time of year the whole course was in good shape and had very nice greens. Unlike some of the newer courses in the area, the greens were makeable from the tees if you made decent shots. The pace of play was also excellent, due to the course marshaling.

Sea Trail (Jones) is an excellent course. The employees were very friendly and accommodating. We wanted to play as a twosome; however, the course had prepared to pair us with another group, but per request they happily made it happen for us to enjoy the course as a twosome. The entire course was in excellent condition.

My husband and I played this course with another couple. The course offers a good distance advantage for women on many holes while still being challenging for the man. The course was in excellent shape for early April. Fairways were green and the greens were in good shape but rolled a little slow. There is a nice variety on the course with strategically placed water and sand traps and a good mix of straight and dog leg holes. I highly recommend this course.

Course was overseeded so hitting off fairways very good. Greens were somewhat slow. Layout was very nice and good for both men and women that played.

We played after noon so got very good deal that made the value better. Not sure it is worth morning price of 91.00$.

We would certainly play here again.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our round of golf at Sea Trail - Jones course. Of course my wife enjoyed it even more when she had a Hole in One on the par 3 fifth hole. It was her first and was very exciting.

The course was in great shape and the greens were perfect. The friendly staff made the day even more enjoyable. We will definitely be back.

Got very good prices from Golf Now. Close to Ocean Isle condo. Fairways greened up and we're in good condition. Pace of play was good. Greens a bit slow. We all enjoyed and would play again.
