The Willard Byrd Course requires a distinctively different approach thanks to a constricting tree line, challenging greenside bunkering, and lakes ranging from 14-20 acres. Strategically placed tee shots are essential for successful play on Byrd's undulating greens of Champions Bermuda. A picturesque and scenic 18th hole between two beautiful ponds finishes the course at the Jones-Byrd Clubhouse. The course measures 6,740 yards from the blue tees; 6,251 yards from the white tees; 5,561 yards from the gold tees; and 4,621 yards from the red tees.

Great layout that is a real test of golf. Greens are super, traps are being redone. Cart paths will lead you straight to your chiropractor.

If you are in the southeastern North Carolina or Grand Strand area of South Carolina, play the Byrd course (and the other two courses on property) when you are there. Challenging, fun and well kept by the Sea Trail grounds crew. Brilliant!More

We golfed here yesterday and it is an amazing course. Well worth the money and plenty to see. There were a ton of birds and even a couple of gators along the way. I would recommend this course for sure.

The course was in fantastic shape after the hurricane. Greens were spot on, with very nice fairways. Hit a great stretch of weather. Clubhouse had any and everything a golfer would need. Would play here again and hit the other 2 courses they had to...More

At Sea Trail you have three 18 hole golf courses to play. My favorite is the Byrd Course. Always well maintained with nice greens. Only knock on this course is the cart paths. They repaved the Jones course cart paths last summer. Let's hope they...More
