Myrtle Beach Golfaway

Sea Trail Golf Resort

The Sea Trail Golf Resort features three excellent golf courses designed by some of golf’s most esteemed architects: Willard Byrd, Dan Maples and Rees Jones.

Byrd Course
Willard Byrd’s creative layout at Sea Trail is built around 7 man-made lakes ranging from 14 – 20 acres. Each hole is memorable for its beauty and exacting play, waste areas, along with mounding and pot bunkers, requires strategy. A picturesque 18th hole, placed between two ponds, finishes the course at the Jones/Byrd Clubhouse.

Located just north of Myrtle Beach, this course has enjoyed an array of distinguished awards; Rated 4 STARS by Golf Digest- 2004, Golfweek Best Resort Course of Distinction- 2004/2005, Golf Digest 50 Best Courses in Myrtle Beach- 2005 and Golf Digest Top 100 Courses in North Carolina- 2006.

Maples Course
The Maples Course at Sea Trail is a traditional golf course set amongst ancient twisted oaks and tall Carolina pines. This fabulous par 72 design features five holes that meander along the tranquil Calabash Creek. Not considered long by today’s standards, however, the Maples layout demands accuracy if you want to post a good score.

Located just minutes from Myrtle Beach, one can expect beautifully maintained fairways, undulating Bentgrass greens and recently refurbished bunkers, the Maples course is also peppered with numerous waste bunkers, one of which extends the entire length of the fifteenth fairway.

Jones Course
Golf course architect Rees Jones has been accredited with four of the last five renovations to U.S. Open courses. The Rees Jones Course at Sea Trail, a 2006 U.S. Open Qualifier course, recently underwent its own renovations, making it even more of a perennial favorite of both visitors and locals. By adding native grasses and wildflower plantings, the 1999 designer-approved renovations brought a more naturalized look to this Myrtle Beach area stalwart.

This straightforward Rees Jones look is pleasing to the eye with generous mounded fairways, bordered by scenic lakes and water hazards on 11 holes, old oaks and towering pine trees. U.S. open Qualifier Course- 2006, Rated 4 STARS by Golf Digest- 2004, Golfweek Best Resort Course of Distinction- 2004/2005, Golfweek Best Course You Can Play- 2005, Golf Digest 50 Best Courses in Myrtle Beach- 2005 and Golf Digest Top 100 Courses in North Carolina- 2006.
