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 nice holes but let down a little by the quality of the greens

Usually a great course. Greens suffered during the past winter and management are attempting to rectify. In the interim, the course is not worth the premium cost. We were on a package so we were going to play regardless but Pro Shop did not even mention the issue with the greens. I would be very upset if I had paid top price and not have been told of the condition. Other wise, a great course. You have to play the Gambler Hole at least once.

See above... the starter for the second round was worse that the starter from the morning.

Better than the other courses we played this week.
This week, SiriusXM Radio host and former PGA TOUR player John Maginnes checks in as the azaleas start to bloom. Spring is here - and John tells us what's on his mind as the great weather is now upon us.
Golf’s first major of the year, the Masters, arrives at majestic Augusta National each April and with it the dawning of a new golf season. For years, prior to heading to Augusta to cover the Masters, the national golf media took advantage of the similarly gorgeous spring weather in Myrtle Beach — the largest city along South Carolina’s coastal “Grand Strand” — where they annually held their season-opening Golf Writer’s Association of America tournament.
