Video Spotlight: The Maples Course at Sea Trail

Dan Maples’ North Strand counterpart to his Pawleys Island handiwork at Willbrook Plantation brings the scenic Calabash Creek, magnificent live oaks and large Carolina pines prominently into play. Join us on a video and hole-by-hole photo tour of the Maples Course at Sea Trail Golf Club in beautiful Sunset Beach, N.C.



The Sea Trail Golf Club in Sunset Beach, North Carolina boasts three consistently high-rated courses that remain a feature facility on the Grand Strand. And the Maples Course at Sea Trail presents a distinct course experience alongside Sea Trail-Byrd and Sea Trail-Jones.

Defined by ancient maritime live oaks, Sea Trail-Maples is characterized by this nostalgic seaside setting with signature frozen hardwoods framing numerous holes, a feature only time can create. With a naturalized setting like this, there’s little wonder why some of the area’s most abundant wildlife calls Sea Trail-Maples home as well, such as year-long resident ospreys like this nesting just steps from the clubhouse – a clubhouse with a convenient bar restaurant and plentiful patio space to enjoy settling the score at your round’s conclusion.

With such a unique look from these picturesque trees often found in sandy waste areas and greenside, there’s no comparison found on the Grand Strand that plays like Sea Trail-Maples. Whether the first group out with dew still burning off or a late afternoon round with long shadows, this par 72 measuring just under 6,800 yards from the back tees will consistently call for creativity to navigate throughout the many dogleg holes.

Sea Trail-Maples is an inviting golf experience defined by this coastal maritime setting of Sunset Beach. Come enjoy all three courses at Sea Trail Golf Club, just across the state line in North Carolina, and 15 minutes from Myrtle Beach – America’s most visited golf destination!
