I played the King's North course during the slow season in Myrtle Beach. It started with two average holes then got more into the meat and potatoes of the course.
Three was a nice par 4 with a safe fairway to the right of a lake which would have made it a fairly ordinary hole, The risk option was a carry over the lake of about 220 yds from the blue tees(that is followed by a series of waste bunkers for about 40-50 yds long). So if you can nail it 260 or so off the tee you'll be right on the doorstep of the green. A very nice risk/reward hole.
The next hole is a very nice par 3 with water guarding the entire front of the green and bunkers in the back. The wind makes this a difficult hole to pick the right club on.
The sixth hole in the Gambler. A par 5 with a island fairway which measures about 100-150 yds long and 75 to 100 yds wide. If you hit your drive the perfect distance you'll have 140 yds to the green on another great risk/reward hole. The high handicapper could choose the safe option which is a fairway to the right of the island fairway, but making it in two will then be much more difficult. Beware of the water wrapping around the green on the left side if the pin is over there. The pin anywhere else of the green will probably have the long approach shot captured by one of the bunkers over this green. Very cool hole!
The seventh, eighth and ninth holes are a nice finish to this outstanding nine holes.
Ten and eleven are average holes, then comes a series of interesting and difficult holes starting with the island green par 312th. A couple of average holes in 13 and 14, then 15 through 18 are all outstanding. The course is a challenge but not unbearable even during the winter season. The course is in very good condition with the greens running about 9 or 10, nothing too crazy.
The biggest complaint was in the time it took to play. The total was about 5 hrs. or a little longer. Maybe this was an aberation since it was the first and only time I played it . No rangers were evident to move play along.
It's a few bucks to play here (probably $100 + during most of the season) but worth it at least once or twice. Overall a very nice experience.
