Developer seeking go-ahead to build on defunct golf links

Houses may soon be rising where golfers once teed off at King’s Grant.

Developer Dave Mikulski is seeking North Charleston’s approval for a development plan that calls for 80 single-family homes on the 178-acre defunct golf course on the Ashley River.

Residents in nearby King’s Grant subdivision fought the land’s development in court but finally agreed in 2006 to allow the bankrupt 18-hole golf course to be developed as long as the developer kept amenities such as a pool, tennis courts and clubhouse along with green space and no more than 80 houses.

“It’s almost exactly the way he laid it out initially,” said King’s Grant President Lynn Whitner.

King’s Grant homeowners must approve the development plan by court order, Whitner said. The subdivision is not in the city of North Charleston, but the old golf course is, so it needed city approval first. It’s not likely that homeowners will oppose the current plan.

“We have questions about one lot, but that should be worked out by the end of the week,” she said.
