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.

We had 3 groups, Play was slow, then at the turn 2 groups were put in the middle of our group, we waited at least 25 minutes at the turn to play. The starter said we must have fallen behind which was odd since we were waiting on every shot on the front. Not an enjoyable round. This is the 4th time we've played there and we like the course but if that happens again we will never come back. FYI - my group has been coming to Myrtle Beach for 16 consecutive years.

Enjoy the layout and challenge of the course. The location is convenient when staying at the beach.

Living in Myrtle Beach, I have played King's North several times this year. As always, the course is well manicured, although the greens were not as fast as expected...not that they were slow by any means. However, surprisingly, the cover of winter rye grass is not as good as would be expected at a premium course. A word of caution from a single digit handicapper....you will find more than a few forced carries over water, which can wear you out with the significant fairway irrigation required to keep winter rye grass healthy. So, give the tees you select to play from due consideration.

Very challenging but well maintained course.
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.
