Worth the trip

Play this course on your next trip. Fairways, greens and sand traps are all well maintained.. If on a buddies trip they have a breakfast and lunch deal that allows you to enjoy the Magnolias restaurant at the club house. This is a great atmosphere to review your round. The greens were punched in the summer and are now in absolute great condition, rolling true and pure.

The course has numerous great holes with the 4th, 5th and 6th the best run on the course, all three of these holes have a forced water carry and are very well designed. The front 9 finishes with back-to-back par 5's. Turning to the back number 10's dog leg right with water tempting you to see how much of the corner you want to bite off.

This is considered a value course and is often overlooked. I thought the pace of play was excellent and your round should not exceed 4-4 1/4 hours, often times even better. While it will not beat you up, it will challenge you through out the round. This is the best of Sea Trails trio.

The only down side to this course is the cart paths can be a little rough. Its a 5 Star value and much better than many of the designated "Premium" courses on the Grand Strand.

sandy greens

Course was in great conditions given the soggy weather but the greens were freshly sanded so that made them miserable.

Jones course is difficult

Cart paths and traps have been redone and are excellent. White tees present 4 par fours that go 400 yards! The fairways are perfect Bermuda and the tees are in good condition. Drainage in front of most greens must be improved or the watering heads need to be replaced.

Great design with small greens.

Good Layout, bad greens

Course was in decent shape. Some thin spots on the fairways. The greens were not in good shape. They had been aerated but not mowed. Heavy watering around the greens. Seems like were still trying to grow in their greens. Would wait at least a month before playing.

Had to play other course

Got to the clubhouse, was supposed to play 18 on the Rees Jones course. Went to counter to check in and was told they are no longer booking with golfnow and they did not have my tee time. Ladies were very nice and saw my confirmation but had to move my group to the Maples course. Maples is not in as good of shape as the Jones course but was still a fun round.

The fairways were very long and they needed to be mowed. Other than that fairly nice course with good greens. But for the price you can find other courses just as nice for cheaper.

Good layout

First thing to say is that the Sea Trail courses have received bad feedback in the past for the quality of the course and particularly the greens but this is typical in the Myrtle Beach area and very weather dependent. So when I first played the course this year I was apprehensive......no need .....the course is in great shape, the layout is top quality and the bag drop guys are welcoming. Of the three Sea Trail courses the Jones is the best layout but not too difficult and a good score is possible if you keep it in the fairways particularly on the 18th hole!!

Good value

Course was in good shape. Would recommend. Only issue was wish they told us they start groups off of both nines. Had first tee time out and played front nine in 1:45. Then had to wait over 35 minutes to tee off on ten as they had 5 groups waiting to go off the back.

Thank you for playing Sea Trail Golf Club, Dave! We appreciate you recommending our golf course to others as well. We apologize if the pace of play on the back 9 was slowed down due to the double tee start. That is not the norm and we hope you'll come back again soon!

Great day of golf on Jones

Jones course was in solid shape considering what a lot of the area courses have gone through with weather. A couple of fairways were very wet, but understandable after morning rain. Greens definitely playable, but will be better in a month or so. Tee boxes were in great shape. This course understands family golf and taking care of juniors. We will back this summer for sure.

Nice layout, horrible greens

Rees Jones design is very good. The greens are in horrible condition....thatchy, spots on greens with shaggy weed making greens completely unpredictable and not fun to putt on. No water jugs on the course!! Bring a range finder or Garmin.... very few yardage markings. Money spent could have been spent on a better course at the same rate. If the greens were decent at all, I would recommend the course....as it stands... Do Not Waste Your Time or Money on this course.
