Love the layout. Course is about to have a major renovation so it’s notnin the best shape but they were very clear about that. Can’t wait to see the renovation.

Course Renovation

Sea Palms has killed all the grass on the fairways. They are closing the course on May 1st for renovation. I was very disappointed that Golf Now did not have a notice about the course. We were told that the course notified GolfNow several times..

Perfect greens and sand

Very enjoyable course. A little tight. Greens are perfect. Consistent roll . A little fast but not too fast. Traps are impeccable. White consistent sand. Early in the season but fairways were fine. Challenging but fair. I highly recommend you play a round here!

Bad communication and dead fairways

We arrived for our 2:08 tee time to find out that the fairways had recently been sprayed and were being killed off for upcoming renovations. Prior to arriving we were not contacted at all by either Sea Palms or GolfNow to be made aware of course conditions. I had 3 friends with me who were visiting all the way from Philadelphia. As it was, this was the last afternoon of their trip and we were left with no other options because it was too late to go to another course. We were given a whopping $8 discount on our round and heavily undersold on how bad the course conditions actually were by staff. On top of that, two of the guys rented clubs and were charged $40 per set for 10 year old Wilson’s that looked as if they were just trash picked and only included about 7-8 clubs per set. As soon as we got out there we were highly disappointed. The fairways were basically down to just dirt. The greens were in decent shape but was told that they would soon be overgrown. All of this could’ve been avoided by a little communication prior to the round by either Sea Palms or GolfNow. The course could also be a little more accommodating with the rentals as well, especially for that price. I had played the course once a few months prior and enjoyed the layout but was greatly disappointed this time.l around. I understand that with a change of ownership and renovations coming that these steps are necessary but communicating this to your customers is very important. I don’t recommend anyone book here in the near future because it appears as though they are just trying to squeeze every last penny out that they can before they close down completely for renovations.

Great Day at Sea Palms

My Buddy and I made a last minute tee time through Golf Now and we got a great rate. The course was in excellent shape, especially the greens. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The driving range could be better but it wasn't that bad. We had a great day. Can't wait to play it again.

Great Day For Golf

I arrived early and was immediately paired with another gentleman named Allen. Luckily our skill levels were the same and we had a great round of golf. The course was in good shape and the pace of play for a Saturday was outstanding. There wasn't a cart person going around with refreshments, but it was not too hot. Overall, I would play this course again.

Worth a visit

Greens in good shape. Fairways a bit dried out. Layout is not special just a nice course to play. Not especially difficult so slow play is not acceptable.

Course in very good condition. Layout is rather bland, has not been updated in 20 years. Very nice greens. Traps not raked. Fairways in good condition. Price was right, and would play it again.

Nice course for the value.

Good course for the value. Some of the people who play there are not too golf friendly, while others are. I am referring to letting faster players through. Other than some foursome being rude, I really enjoy the course, the greens, the tees and the sand traps. At my home course if a hole is open, we let faster players through. This should be a rule at all courses. Of course a ranger would help the situation. I have never seen a ranger on the course.
