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.

Had great time. We were twosome behind 3 foursomes so we had to wait a lot. Group in front were nice to ask if wanted to play ahead but was really no need since so many already in front. Great to play on nice grass this time of year. Greens were fantastic! Snack bar could use more efficient operation to ensure no delays getting onto back 9. Overall will definitely play course many more times.

First time at this course. Course was wet, cart path only on several holes. Nice condition and good pace of play even without a ranger. Nice variety of holes, would play again. Also got to see some very large gators basking in the sun on a warm January day.

(Seems like many courses in the area have done away with rangers and rarely enforce any type of pace of play in an effort to avoid offending anyone! But they forget that those groups following a very slow group of players are being offended by having to endure a 5 hour plus round of golf). I refuse to play courses that allow this behavior.

I have played this course multiple times and was surprised at the great course conditions. This area has received a lot of rain this year, from Hurricane Matthew to it just raining the last few weeks. Greens are in great shape for the winter. The course layout is challenging but fair. If you are in the Ocean Isle area it's a must play

Booked this on Golfnow. Great value! The course is nice. The conditions were very good for this time of year. The fairways were excellent, the greens were good.... a little slow, but true. The Sandtraps were amply filled and came into play quite often. Layout was a challenge from the white tees. Staff was friendly... amenities were great. It's a little wet but only 5 holes were cart paths only. I would play again.

This Rees Jones-designed course was at times like playing in a scenic wetlands and at other times amid some beautiful homes. That's how varied the environment was. A couple of fairways were soggy from previous rains but for the most part the course was in great shape for mid-December. We saw blue herons, egrets, cormorants and, on one hole, a large alligator thankfully sunning itself quietly to one side of the green not far from a pink golf ball that someone ahead of us apparently decided not to retrieve. All in all, a great day on a fine course at a bargain price. Would love to play the Byrd and Maples courses at Sea Trail.

I thoroughly enjoyed this round of golf.

Course condition was excellent... it's winter golf but the fairways, greens and tees were nicely over seeded so they were green and plush... just a bit wet from watering necessary to get the winter rye to grow. Traps were nicely groomed and paths were in good condition. The course layout was quite good but not in my top ten for the immediate area.

I signed up as a single but got paired up with another single. He was a great playing partner. We completed the round in just over three hours only having to wait on a few shots.

Great value for the cost. Definitely would play the Jones Course again.

I've played all 3 Sea Trail courses in the last month and the Jones is in the best condition. Rye is growing in nicely, greens rolled true, fewest issues with over watering fairways. Some bare / worn areas in rough and fairways but much better than the other two courses.
