Overview
More
The Jones Course is a straightforward layout featuring generous mounded fairways bordered by scenic lakes and towering trees. A perennial favorite among residents and guests, this course is an extraordinary golf experience for players of all skill levels. Wide fairways and large mounds are surrounded by water, with water coming into play on 11 holes of the Par 72 championship course. In addition to water hazards, the many pot and large expanse bunkers make for a delightfully challenging game of golf. This spectacular course measures 6,761 yards from the blue tees; 6,334 yards from the white tees; 5,716 from the gold tees; and 4,912 yards from the red tees

Despite the fact that a lot of the greens took a hit due to the cold winter, they were rolled smooth. Therefore, making the roll pretty true. They received a couple of inches of rain a few days before we played and then a couple...More

Sea Trail has lost their greens on the Jones and Byrd courses. Now several holes have temporary greens. Be aware of this and ask before booking tee times. Don’t know if they are offering reduced greens fees or not.More

Played on a hot, hot day of 100+ heat index. Course is in good, not great, shape. Having said that it is worth the rate charged. Fairways were a bit long, but as wet as it's been I suppose cutting them has been tough. The...More
