We have compiled a list of the top golf course holes that will make you scratch your head. Get ready to make a bet with your buddies and see who comes out the winner, you never know. The top five are in no particular order because they all are unique in their own particular way.
King’s North, par 5 6th hole “The Gambler” You better know when hold it and when to fold it. This hole offers a short-cut to a possible eagle that requires a well-placed tee shot to an island fairway. Miss it right or left and you’ll pay the price. If playing it safe is more your game, play it around the lake, take your par and move on down the road.
Tidewater par 4 4th hole The #1 handicap hole on this stunning seaside course is a real crusher that plays 400 yards from the white tees along the edge of a saltwater inlet. Your approach shot is to an elevated green that is protected on all four sides. A bogey fills like par here.
Blackmoor par 4 8th hole The signature hole of Blackmoor is a great risk-reward par 4 that plays 370 yards as a dogleg right and 270 yards going straight. Although that 100 yards shorter sounds tempting, you better hit it straight! It is over rough and through an alley of trees that is less than 30 yards wide. If you opt to play it safe, then hit your tee shot straight at the elbow of the dogleg. This leaves a straightforward approach to the very large green. The green has some subtle breaks to it, but there is a great chance to hole a putt from anywhere on this green!
True Blue par 5 #1 How many courses can you name that throw their hardest hole at you right out of the gate. This 600-yard par five is an early wake-up call, with a dog-leg left off the tee and a creek in front of an elevated green. Tighten your laces, lads. Welcome to True Blue. Are you excited to get out there and make your plans for the next golf vacation right here in Myrtle Beach.
We know you will enjoy playing at each of these courses, especially the unique holes we talked about. Good luck and we will see you soon.
