Attraction details
Owner description: The Maples Course is a traditional southern course framed by twisted ancient oaks and tall Carolina pines. The medium-length, accuracy-demanding course features five holes that wind along the scenic Calabash Creek, with elaborate landscaping, and undulating greens. Still regarded as one of Maples finest, this is a beautiful par 72 course, with A1/A4 blended Bent grass greens. The course is also peppered with numerous waste bunkers, one of which extends the full length of a fairway. The course measures 6,797 yards from the blue tees; 6,330 yards from the white tees; 6,035 yards from the gold tees; and 5,110 yards from the red tees.

“A really nice Course at the Coast”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

This is a really fun course to play. Tough enough to feel like a great accomplishment but open enough to not be painful to play. Everyone should try it. You'll come back, for sure.

“terrible shape”
Reviewed 19 May 2012

Played this course today for $25...and sadly that was too much money. The layout is actually pretty decent but the course is in terrible condition. It seems like there has been little to no maintenance recently. The greens and fairways were not too bad but everything else was dried up, there was no grass around the tee boxes(or even on a few), the bunkers looked liked they had never been raked, mulch hasnt been added for years, and half of the tee shots were obstructed by overhanging limbs. If they put some money into the course, it could actually be a decent short course. Agree that there are many better options around.

“Terrible Greens”
Reviewed 26 July 2010

My husband, teen granddaughter and I golfed The Maples July 22, 2010. The greens were in such bad shape, we couldn't even putt. They even had weeds, yes weeds, growing on the greens plus holes and completely dry spots. It was impossible to putt. Plus the cost was $42!! What a waste, when there are so many nice courses around.

“The Best Golf Resort in North Carolina”
Reviewed 8 May 2008

This is my fourth trip to the Sea Trails Plantation in Sunset Beach, North Carolina. The resort has 3 championship golf courses. Each course was in excellent condition as always and the entire staff was extremely friendly and competent. The accomodations were spacious and contained everything you would need for a wonderfull golf vacation. My recommendation is at the highest level!!!
