For full disclosure, I own a villa at Sea Trail. I agree that they should not have aerated greens right before World Am as it results in comments like below. If not aerated, the Byrd course is in decent shape as the greens were replaced a few years back. Currently, the Jones course is closed as it is undergoing new greens and other improvements. The latest is that it could reopen in a month or two – depends on weather. The resort had significant financial problems a few years back but has a new owner for last few years (A Chinese businessman, Mr. Pan). He has invested slowly in rehabbing the resort and several improvements have been completed to the golf courses and the Convention Center, etc., and others are being completed at a modest pace. The rental villas like mine are mostly well maintained and resort guests can also play many of the other fine courses that are located close by.
