We found this course to be user friendly for the ladies in our foursome. Fairways and greens were good and seeing nature including 4 Gators made it even better!

One of our ladies shots ended up 6 feet from a sun soaking Gator.....Made for a great picture

Got a great deal here on a very nice course. Conditions were good for this time of year. Nice variety of holes but found white tee boxes were a bit long for us on some holes,no problem we just moved up to the gold. Ladies liked the red tees. Great pace of play, nice fairways and good greens. Traps need a bit of work. Check in lady was grouchy but cart guy explained course basics. Play this one.

Tee offs were very poor. Hadn't been cut in a month. Sand traps had very little sand and looked like they had not Ben maintained in months. Greens rolled fast and true. Overall an OK day.

My first time playing the Byrd course. Sea Trail has 3 courses; I have previously played the Maples. I am 62 years old, and play to about a 14 handicap. Played the white tees, which were about 6,150 yards. As a short hitter in the winter months, with soft (but not wet) fairways, this is about max distance for me. Course layout is good with a mix of doglegs, several par 4's between 375 and 390, and some par-5's yielding birdie opportunities. The par3 holes are good as well, with several that play over the corners of lakes. This is a solid, if not spectacular course. I would play it again as the rack rate in January is reasonable.
