Each hole of the Willard Byrd Course is memorable for both beauty and exacting play. Built around several man-made lakes, each ranging from 14-20 acres, every hole of this par-72 signature course requires a distinctly different approach. Strategically placed tee shots are essential for successful play on Byrd’s undulating bentgrass greens. Finish the 18th hole at the Jones-Byrd Clubhouse.
Willard Byrd Course: A Memorable Test in Coastal Beauty
The Byrd Course at Sea Trail Resort distinguishes itself notably from the other courses at Sea Trail with picturesque finishing holes surrounded by seven different man-made ponds that straddle a generous amount of waste bunkers. While smart play is advised, more advanced golfers may discover opportunities to follow a more aggressive strategy off the tee.
After renovations in 2008, the greens at the Byrd Course are now more expansive and feature more undulation that makes for a more compelling test of any golfer’s short game. Fairway bunkers are strategically placed and dictate many of your tee and approach shots on the vast majority of holes. Constricting tree lines add to the overall challenge of your round, while considerable mounding that lines the fairways aids in keeping golf shots in play.
Golfers have classified this golf course as "a beautiful challenge” in the heart of Sunset Beach, N.C. Minutes from sandy beaches, players will feel the coastal breeze while taking on the finishing holes. The challenge of the Byrd Course’s relatively simple course design creeps up on all who play it, especially on those holes that feature nearly 90-degree bends on some of its doglegs. Be ready to strategize and play smart in order to shave a few strokes off your final score.
This resort-style course is sure to satisfy players of all skill levels. The forward tees reach up to nearly 4,700 yards while the back tees extend to as much as 6,800 yards. At round’s end, golfers will enjoy Sea Trail Resort’s on-site restaurant for a bite to eat and revisit the pro shop for a variety of merchandise to commemorate their visit. Be sure to keep to keep this and all the courses at Sea Trail Resort on your short list of compelling options for a Grand Strand golf vacation!
