Nice golfer friendly layout. Lots of work being done on course and lots of work and ground keeping to be done on

Course. Average to poor conditions. Greens very slow and tons on pine needles and leaves on the fairway.

First time playing this course and we found it very enjoyable. Would play again and again if we could. Nice green fairways, puttable greens. Nice venue. Only wish that they would put up signs for the Jones course and Byrd courses before we got to the center and a sign with arrow to the Maples course.

The three courses at Seatrail are always well kept especially the Maples course. Golf Now prices are amazing at 18 dollars a player for this time of year. The fairways were green and mowed and the greens were like carpet unlike the majority of the courses in the Myrtle Beach area. The best value for your money.

I would rate this course average for the area. Conditions were OK, but a bit shabby near tees and between holes. Worth playing for the price.

I particularly enjoyed the layout. From the regular men's white tees, slope is 127, although the yardage is around 6,000, so it is "sneaky tough" in places. Greens were in good shape, fairways over-seeded with rye grass all look good. The cart paths are a disaster, need to be re-done. The course needs an update to the beautification, cart paths, and outside the fairways in general. I hope by spring 2017 these can be fixed. Despite that, I look forward to returning.

Hadn't played here in 20 years. Was always a favorite. Not a long course but many holes requires well thought and accurate shot placement to score well. The staff was very friendly, from the pro shop to starter to grill ladies and the ranger. Like many area courses it would benefit from additional investment to improve maintenance and update some course features. Some tees and places in fairways were thin and a few greens had patchy areas. Cart paths really need work. On the plus side they had recently over seeded for winter and the rye appeared to be filling in nicely. Also, there was a beverage cart on the course.

Beautiful well maintained and challenging coutse. Excellent greens and fairways. Great views lots of water with some tricky risk reward holes. The very nice Maples Bar and gril bar attached to the clubhousewas dissapointingly closed. Some of tee boxes need some work but all said great value great coutse.
