Great day at links.

Course was in decent shape. Greens in great shape, but a tad slow. Just great to be playing in the age of Covid. Separation issues handled well. Always a good value for the dollar.

Going downhill

Been a year since I played this course. Sadly, the course seems like it's going in the wrong direction. Only redeeming part were the greens. Everything else looks like the place is going downhill. Hadn't rained in a few days but still cart path only. Trouble with the cart paths, so rough you'll leave a kidney behind.
Much better courses around for lesser price.

Came back for more!

Played by myself in 3 hours! 8 AM tee time On Sunday and had the course to myself, so I was able to get to the beach. Some challenging shots, I like this course. If your unfamiliar with the Bermuda grass greens (like myself) good luck. Tough to read and fairly s-l-o-w. Both starters are great, friendly and knowledgeable.

Fantastic layout, course was in good shape, a little wet, but we played first thing in the morning. Greens were rolling good. Would play again!

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.

Great crew greeting us

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a high energy, friendly staff. Nice way to begin the round. Course is in excellent shape. Greens were a bit slow after recent aeration — not a big deal.
