anyone that played Sea Trail this week? How was it? I am coming back to MB with my frat buddies in October and the people are trying to book us at Sea Trail and I havent heard anything positive from this week. Anyone that played it this week please weigh in on your thoughts. ThanksSeptember 2, 2016 at 7:48 am #36551Barry AnshellParticipant
Don, the below is copied and pasted from a post that was out up 3 days ago.They’re struggling and there are a lot of better options IMO.
“Sea Trail – Turd/Byrd”
“It’s pretty pathetic that a course host a tournament when their greens are still healing from being aerated but it’s even worse when a course is to damn lazy to even rake the bunkers so they are somewhat playable, this course needs to be removed from the rotation!”September 2, 2016 at 1:17 pm #36562Mike JenkinsParticipant
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.September 2, 2016 at 4:52 pm #36567Phil IngleburgerParticipant
I played the Byrd course on Thursday and would NOT recommend it to anyone at this time. Not only had the greens been aerated, they were not mown (extremely slow and grainy) and the pins looked that they hadn’t been moved in several days. I would recommend Brunswick Plantation.September 2, 2016 at 5:23 pm #36572Barry AnshellParticipant
Thanks for the words on Brunswick Plantation Phil. Don this place is in great shape. I’d be happy to get you some times while you’re here. The guest rate is $35, just let me know.September 6, 2016 at 11:30 am #36611Aaron EllisParticipant
I 2nd the Brunswick Plantation mention, played there the Friday before the World Am and the place was in excellent shape, least they rake the bunkers and the greens are fantastic!
