Sea Trail Maples

This resort has three eighteen hole golf courses and once hosted the PGA Tour’s Carolina Open and the Carolina Pro Am. These golf courses offer a challenge to all skill levels of golfer. Each golf course is named after the person who designed it. The Sea Trail Maples golf course is short, narrow and surrounded by homes. The greens are undulating and medium-sized. Water hazards (lakes) come into play at least twelve times. The signature hole is #7, a 410-yard, par 4, requiring shots past trees and over water. “Golf Digest” nominated the Maples golf course as one of the most outstanding new resort golf courses in the country for 1986.
