North Shore is up in Sneads Ferry off US 17 near N Topsail Beach, about 30 minutes north of Wilmington. The course is routed through a residential development, but on the outskirts of it, so there's only homes on one side of maybe half the holes, the rest are open and isolated, and bordered by wetlands From the back tees, the course plays to 6866 yards, 139 slope, and 73.1 course rating. Half of the holes are laid out along the Intracoastal Waterway, the balance through the trees, makes for reasonably wide landing areas, but the approaches to the greens are tight with a lot of sand. The course was designed by Bob Moore The greens were in good shape, fairly good sized, and moderate undulation. Nice warm up course for some of the area's tougher courses, and a nice setting to boot.
