Solid course

Only thing they need to improve is the cart paths. Pot holes Richmond Va would be embarrassed by.

Very Nice Course

I went with my 8 year old, and it was a great experience. The course layout was great, and the condition was excellent. It was very dry down here, but the fairways were very well maintained, and the greens were about as well as they could be, considering the weather.

The course had some good challenging holes, and the fairways were wide enough to accommodate my (many) mis-hits, so I didn't lose many balls. My son, playing off the red tees, was able to stay away from water trouble, and had a lot of fun.

We will definitely be back.

Nice Track to Play a round

Facilities and course looked great. Friendly folks as staff members. Carts were top notch too. Course was wet so cart path only, water does not drain well on some holes but all greens were in great shape. Pretty challenging and some really pretty holes.

A good value and nice course

Played two of the three courses at Sea Piines. I would rate this a close second to the Rees Jones course. Wide open fairways and the greens are in great condition. The bag boys and starters were extremely nice and friendly.

Solid day at Byrd

My son and I really enjoyed the round on the Byrd course. Greens rolled well and for what a lot of area courses have gone through were in good shape. We got to see a couple of gators sunning and relaxing as we played. The only negative would be cart paths, but with it being 90 degeee wasn’t that big of deal. We will be back this summer.

rough ride

for this time of year the course was okay but the most dangerous part of the course are the golf cart paths - about as bad as I have been on - four wheel drive would of helped

Golfnow booking

when I arrived at the course they didn’t have my reservation. I showed my booking and confirmation to the woman booking us in and she said that they didn’t have my booking and that there were no open tee times so there was. I thing she could do. I saw d I would call GolfNow which I did. While I was waiting on the line I logged into GolfNow and saw they there were a few open tee times at around our time. The golf now representative came back on the line and said that he had reserved another tee time for ten minutes later than our originally scheduled tee time and I went back in line to check in. While I was in line someone else was checking in under my name and was taking our tee time. it was an extremely upsetting experience.
we finally received our ticket for the starter but she was very unapologetic and made me feel like I was not a paying customer.

Despite cart path only due to amount of rain that course can't control we enjoyed our round. Staff are excellent! Like the variety of tee boxes and the greens were fast and in great condition. Really enjoyed our day!
