Four Days In The Brunswick Isles
For great golf, head to the border
Where To Stay
Sea Trail Resort
211 Clubhouse Road
Sunset Beach, NC 28468
With an average temperature of 74 degrees, Sunset Beach boasts some of the country’s best year-round weather, making it a perfect place to spend your Brunswick Isles vacation.
The Sea Trail Resort is less than 45 miles from both Myrtle Beach and Wilmington International Airports and features such amenities as in-room massage, beach access and three championship golf courses.
Day 3: Sea Trail Resort & Leopard's Chase
Sleep in a little later today because you’re playing at Sea Trail’s Maples Course, designed by Dan Maples. It’s one of the prolific designer’s best creations, primarily because of its challenging layout and inventive routingÂ—most notably when five of its holes wind their way through Calabash Creek, taking you past nesting Osprey and other wildlife.
Since your third day again finds you playing 36, you won’t have much time for lunch, so either grab a bite at Sea Trail or at the Ocean Ridge clubhouse, where you’ll play your next 18.
Ocean Ridge is the home to the “Big Cats,” five courses named after the fiercest felines in the world, and today, lucky you, you’ll be one of the first to battle Leopard’s Chase. Tim Cate’s course opened its doors on February 28th and is already receiving raves from those who’ve played it.
After tackling maples and leopards, why not have dinner with the Shark? Greg Norman’s Australian Grille at Barefoot Landing is minutes away.
