One of three premier layouts at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club, King’s North is an Arnold Palmer-designed gem offering several of the Grand Strand’s most memorable holes.
Redesigned by “The King” in 1996, King's North made its way onto Golf Digest's prestigious list of "America's 100 Greatest Public Courses - 2004" and Golf Digest's "Places to Play" has awarded it 4.5 STARS ever since. Plus, from 2000-2004 Golf for Women ranked it their "Top 100 Courses in America.”
King’s North features 18 of the most dramatic and picturesque holes you’ll ever encounter. The par-5 6th hole (nicknamed “The Gambler”) features an island fairway that offers a “risk-reward” shortcut to the green. If the island fairway is chosen it could leave a good chance at going for this green in two, thus the “Gamble.” However, a safe layup to the right and a short approach over water will always keep you guessing. The par-3, island green 12th hole creates a challenge of its own. A miss to the right and you could find the water, miss left and you could find the distinctive “SC” bunkers that would leave a delicate bunker shot. And don’t forget the par-4 finishing hole at 18, featuring an array of 40 bunkers escorting you to an exciting finish of an exhilarating round.

Very beautiful and challenging course I will surely recommend to whoever I talk to ... Staff are very cordial and very considerate, they know that a good number of people who play here are from other states. I really appreciate the STARTER because after the hold due to rain the starter before we continued on the 10th, he greeted me and addressed me by my name, and that was really something. Bless his heart ... And because of that I shoot 3 over on my back nine! And almost birdied the last hole by only an inch! See what this SIMPLE THING WILL CHANGE SOMEONES GAME! Or I may also say someONE'S DAY! ...

Course was in good shape. Loved the layout, true Carolina course. I would definitely play here again during my next trip to the area.

We love King's North because it is just a beautiful setting with a great golf course wrapped in. It is what we associate Myrtle Beach golf with. I personally love the pine trees. Oh yeah, my wife parred the Gambler. Happy wife, happy life.

For $85, the customer service could have been much better. The starter and beverage cart ladies were surly. Little course information was provided by the starter. Much of the course had been top dressed with something resembling a mixture of mulch and mud. The greens were incredibly slow and vertical cut markings were still evident. And we were told the course condition was an "8 out of 10". Hardly.

This course has a great layout; however, sadly we will not be playing this course again. The first problem was with the course conditions. I would expect a company with any integrity would notify customers of the course conditions. We booked our rounds online in May; however, there was no mention of the aerification of the course. The course was "punched" 3 days before we played. Had we been notified, we would have played another MBN course. To add insult to injury, the service was appalling. We had to get our bags out of the car and request the clubs be loaded on a cart. The shop attendant's service was surly at best. We will never be playing another course owned or managed by Myrtle Beach National.

Service in the grill was great. One of the best turkey and Swiss on marbled rye I've had in a long time. Encountered a rude-unaware course attendant that encroached upon us unnecessarily during our finishing hole. His incompetence was not enough to damping our overall great experience at MBNKN
It took a few moments after a recent round at Myrtle Beach National’s King’s North course to realize my favorite club in the bag had been reduced to a place holder. That Callaway five wood, a present I consider the nicest piece of golf hardware I own, sat idle for nearly all of 18 holes. That’s when my playing partner pointed out that every other club got its chance to shine.
The moveable feast that is Myrtle Beach golf appeals to all sorts of players for all sorts of reasons throughout the calendar year. Some like it hot, some like it upscale, some seek out less expensive months, some like it for at least 36 holes a day, some prefer to set aside ample pool and beach time.
Often looked upon as the little brother course to National’s King’s North and even its West Course, SouthCreek at Myrtle Beach National has developed a following of its own. The Arnold Palmer design has a clean look surpassed only by a playability created by pristine surfaces. Trouble spots in the turf are non-existent, leaving players the ability to concentrate on something else.
For as much as the Grand Strand’s golf scene is a niche all its own, there’s only so many hours in the day where a round is possible. Plus, if those 18 or 36 holes weren’t so kind, finding a way to improve your day on the links after the fact never hurts, either. Below are some favorite watering holes worthy of your coin. Without catering specifically to golfers, they’ve already earned more than their fair share. And for good reason.
