  • Myrtle Beach National - King's North

    This will be my last course and I'm going out on a good one. My favorite course in Myrtle. Designed by the late great Arnold Palmer.

    Many thanks to jpotas who helped me with the lidar a long time ago.

      I used about 80% of the object meter on this one. The terrain is pretty much flat so it wasn't anywhere as close to taxing as some of the other courses I've done. Its still ridiculously detailed, I must have made about 20 passes over resource material and Google Earth to get everything in. I even put some of the adjacent holes from the West course in.

          So has anyone else played this wonderful track? It was exceptional with one minor exception. I question the tee placement on #6, the Gambler. The gambling route, that is, driving it toward the island was a 250 yard carry from the white tees while the "safe" route required a short hitter (200 yd) to hit a very narrow strip of land between two water bodies. It seems as though the tees are set way too far back. Perhaps this is just me, but it seems like the short hitter has no good option. The safest play would be to hit a 7 iron off the tee, then approach the fairway from there.... Has anyone else noticed this?

              Let me know what you think of the tee shot on #6....

            nkrause Thank you for playing the course!

            I don't follow you on the carry thing on 6 though.

            In this screenshot, I'm hovering the mouse over the front middle section of the island fairway. The gambling route. From the white tees that's a 146 yard carry.

            This second screenshot I'm hovering the mouse in the middle of the fairway across from the middle (2nd) fairway bunker. The safe route. 171 carry to that spot with at least 75 yards of room before and 25 yards after that spot

            Are you talking about the approach shot, or the tee shot?

              All I can think is that I pulled up the wrong version. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

              I played this course in real life on Sunday and it is nothing short of spectacular!

              I played the front nine this morning, and it was absolutely phenomenal! After playing it this weekend, it seems to be true to form right down to the pot bunker on 5 and the gambler!

              I've been playing it a bunch too. It is definitely in my top 5!

            This will be my last course and I'm going out on a good one.
            Why is this your last course? You do such phenomenal work...

              Brettster The biggest reason is that there is alternative software out there now that is far superior to TGC. TGC 19 is incredibly dated at this point and there are no updates on the horizon for reasons all of us know. Doesn't make sense to continue building courses on a platform that will never get better. I'm keeping my license with hope that at some point ProTee will strike a deal for the next version, but I have no confidence that will ever happen.

              I've had inquires about building custom courses but I'm not sure that makes sense time/value wise for me. It takes me quite a while to build a course and its hard to assign a dollar amount to that.

              Building courses is extremely satisfying, but you have to be into it. I was never in it for money.

              I'm also liking the ability to work on my game and play, rather than build courses and trying to find time to work on my game. Hard to make time for both when both require so much time.

                EG$ - that's sad for everyone.... Is there any chance you could budget your time and maybe continue to work on courses for some limited amount of time per week? Something like 2 hours/week, or 4 hours/week, or more? Then it might not feel like you're spending so much time, and I know it would take you much, much longer to finish, but you would still have satisfaction when you are done.

                I also wish that we knew that ProTee would 'strike a deal' for the next version of TGC, such as 2K23. Maybe at some point they will have enough people asking them to do that, that they will consider it? Keep your hopes/dreams up, but I wish that you would keep developing/designing courses - you're work is phenomenal!

              Played here IRL about 20 years ago. Fun, fun course. Played a few nights ago on my sim... it was great. Very well done - thanks!! My only gripe is (and from what I understand, it's a TGC19 issue, not a designer issue) - is where a ball gets dropped after entering a water hazard. I forgot which hole, but I had about 200 yards or so to the green... went for it and chunked it fat, right into the water. The game would not let me drop 150 yards up where I entered the water... I had to rehit from 200 yards. Much harder shot. Annoying, but not the end of the world. Great job - highly recommended play.
