Sea Trail opening new neighborhoods; Brunswick offers cheap overnight stays

    The large golf resort community of Sea Trail in Sunset Beach, NC, just north of the South Carollina state line and North Myrtle Beach, has opened two additional neighborhoods -- SeaHorse Estates and Eastwood Bluff.  SeaHorse comprises 1/2 to 1 acre estate-sized lots located on the first three holes of the community's Rees Jones golf course.  The Jones course last year played host to a U.S. Open qualifying round.  Eastwood Bluff's three-story town homes are situated along the community's Willard Byrd golf course.  Byrd's courses typically include generously sized fairways and greens.  The town homes feature more than 2,300 square feet and a private elevator and garage.

    The courses at Sea Trail are accessible to the public but also accept memberships.  Those who maintain second-homes in the community can opt for a set number of rounds annually for a set price.  Fifteen rounds are just $510, and 150 rounds are $4,200, or less than $30 per round if you use them all.  We are still scratching our heads over Sea Trail's unlimited golf membership dues of $3,900, which represents a better deal than the 150 rounds rate.  We will ask about that when we take advantage of Sea Trail's reasonable $99 Real Estate Discovery Package, which includes accommodations and breakfast.  Their web site is a little stingy with prices on the new communities so give them a call if you are interested.  Contact Sea Trail at 800-338-9672 or visit the web site at .       

    If $99 a night seems reasonable, you might want to visit Brunswick Plantation in Calabash, NC, just down the road from Sea Trail.  An overnight stay is just $40 per night per couple (their literature does not indicate how long you can stay, but at that rate it could be cheaper than renting long term).  Brunswick's 1,750 acres include waterfront home sites, lakeside condos, furnished golf villas, and town homes with garages.  Its 27 holes of golf were designed by Willard Byrd (18) and Clyde Johnston (9).  Home sites are available from the $90s, homes from the $300s and town homes from $340,000.  The fully furnished condos start at $250,000.  The web site is .  Telephone is 800-835-4533.
