Greens, greens, that is what brings you back when the tees, fairways, and traps are good. It's all good at Sea Palms and the greens are very good. I'll be back soon.

My first round since October. Course had recovered from hurricane flooding and extreme cold conditions. Remarkably, it was in very good winter shape.

I'll be playing it again. A fair challenge for the average golfer.

Pace of play was slow due to cart path only play.

The course and greens are in great shape for January golf. Some challenging holes make you think about club choice. Very enjoyable!
