King’s North at Myrtle Beach National

King’s North at Myrtle Beach National is one of the area’s most decorated courses, having earned Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” 4.5 Star honors each year for more than a decade after forcing it’s way into the publication’s “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” list in 2004.

It’s an upward trend that started in 1996 upon Arnold Palmer’s touch-up and the subsequent two decades of top-end golf.

“It’s a great design,” first assistant professional Brian Lewis said. “It’s got Arnold’s personal touch on it. He came out and did the re-design itself. … It’s a special course. it’s got a beautiful design.”

The course’s signature holes could also be considered one of the Grand Strand’s signature holes. The par-5, No. 6 - affectionately known as “The Gambler” - includes an island fairway to the left of the safer stretch. Players who can reach the back half of that island then have a manageable second shot onto the green. Make both, and you’re putting for eagle.

Those who don’t get that first shot far enough and still press the issue, or those who miss the island altogether, come to understand why Kenny Rogers lent the title of one of his most famous songs to this hole.

King's North in great shape, always enjoy playing here with my group
by Jong - 06/16/2016
Love playing this course. Was a little disappointed with the greens. Several thin areas and a little bumpy. Usually the greens are in very good shape, but not on the day we played. Staff was very helpful. Really like the layout of the course. Will continue to play the course in the future. Just hope that greens will be in a little better shape.
by W S - 06/07/2016
Was a wet day but what a great day at MBN Kings North. I'm a little partial having my 1st hole in one on #12. Best part was having my friend Paul witness the shot :) will return.
by Paul Steers - 03/19/2016
Continues to be a favorite,staff was outstanding and course in great shape. Will continue to be a must play.
by Tom G - 11/18/2015
Course was well maintained and cart path only because of the recent rain and watering from growing season. We may need to schedule in different time frame because of the age groups. Too much to walk for the older folks. :-) Loved the course but couldn't justify cost with so many courses here and needing to walk.
by Sean (Centreville, VA) - 07/17/2015
It was great experience.
by Jim G. - 07/13/2015
Enjoyed the course very much. I have been coming to Myrtle Beach for over 30 years, and the greens at King's North today were the best I have ever seen in Myrtle Beach. The starter was extremely friendly. Started at 7:45 and finished in less than 4 hours. Carts were allowed on fairways. Bunkers were in excellent condition. In summary, I thoroughly enjoyed the course.
by Phil - 05/09/2015
For 3 course facility called MB National, I expect adequate bathrooms and a much better grill and pro shop.
by Nick - 05/04/2015
Great experience from parking the car to pulling out of the driveway. Staff was excellent, well organized and friendly. Huge clubhouse with plenty of merchandise. Course was fantastic...greens perfect, many memorable holes, i.e. The Gambler, island green. Top notch will be back for years to come.

Enjoy the layout and challenge of the course. The location is convenient when staying at the beach.
by Gilbert & Anne (Ottawa, ON) - 12/03/2014
Very good.
by Bob (Myrtle Beach, SC) - 12/03/2014
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 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.
by Rick (Thamesford, ON) - 11/23/2014
We were playing a twosome and were trying to play quickly to beat the rain. Caught up to the threesome ahead by the sixth hole and had to wait on every hole. Missed the last three holes do to a storm. Never saw a ranger the whole time on the course.
by Mike (Salisbury, MD) - 11/23/2014
Very challenging but well maintained course.
by Tom (Greer, SC) - 11/15/2014
Very good.
by Paul-Andre - 11/13/2014
Loved the starter who gave us the opportunity to play alone (our twosome) with out being paired up to strangers, really appreciated that. The most beautiful course and clubhouse seen, within the 5 different clubs we visited in our trip to Myrtle Beach.
by Stephen (Mount Pleasant, SC) - 11/11/2014
Wonderful experience. I highly recommend it.
by Gary (Leland, NC) - 11/08/2014
Very good.
by Neil (Peterborough, ON) - 11/06/2014
Nice course, good experience, again.
by Bob (Lincoln, NE) - 10/31/2014
Nice course.
by Chris (Rutherfordton, NC( - 10/28/2014
Had a great time at King's North. That's one tough course to play. I will be back. Thank you!
by Tom (Quincy, MA) - 10/21/2014
Great course.
by Ed (Somerdale, NJ) - 10/17/2014
by Richard (Aston, PA) - 10/16/2014
Pace of play too slow, too many golfers.
by Michael (Philadelphia, PA) - 10/15/2014
Our favorite course to play...challenging..lots of water holes, tons of traps, hilly fairways, dog legs fun to play...I refer to it as a strategy course, where have to pick your landing spots...IF one can execute them!
by Vince (Burlington, ON) - 10/11/2014
by Reco (Lisle, IL) - 10/03/2014
Great course!
by Robert (E. Patchogue, NY) - 09/28/2014
It had rained all week before so it was a bit soggy, understandably cart paths only but very nice course. Would never pay the $120 fees here again though. This is NOT Tru Blu or Caledonia. $70 course in its best condition.
by Rick (Taunton, MA) - 09/28/2014
Too wet.
by John (Naperville, IL) - 09/26/2014
Great shape every year.
by Gerry (Crystal Lake, IL) - 09/26/2014
by Joe (Barrington, IL) - 09/26/2014
Kings North - Impeccable!
by Richard (Wichita Falls, TX) - 09/22/2014
Beautiful course, like new top line rental clubs. Pro shop excellent staff. At special rate of $55 would play again and again.
by Ed (Ocala, FL) - 09/18/2014
by Cal - 09/17/2014
Great course.
by Chris (Quincy, MA) - 09/09/2014
Great greens & fairways, very playable. Will definitely be back next trip.
by M/M Don - 09/08/2014
(Would like to have know prior to play) that greens were recently aerated.
by Paul (Mississauga, ON) - 08/30/2014
While very playable course still recovering from punching and top dressing of greens.
by Noel (Waldorf, MD) - 08/13/2014
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! ...
by Jeffrey (Pickerington, OH) - 07/24/2014
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.
by Chris (Tallmadge, OH) - 07/24/2014
Course was in good shape. Loved the layout, true Carolina course. I would definitely play here again during my next trip to the area.
by Stephen (Huntington, WV) - 06/24/2014
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.
by Steve (Birmingham, Al) - 06/13/2014
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
by Josh - 06/12/2014
Excellent!! Me and my 12 year old daughter played today, and course was in great shape. Very enjoyable experience. Only complaints would be water on course is not very cold and cart girl, while we seen twice, said she was heading in for the day at 330 or so. Still quite few playing at that time it seemed. Other than that a very fair, beautiful golf course!
by Richard (Grand Island, FL) - 06/09/2014
Best course ever
by James (Murrells Inlet, SC) - 06/09/2014
No rangers took 5 1/2 htd to play very slow group in front would not let I'd play thru. Beverage cart came around after 13 holes
by Art - 06/09/2014
Played the King's North course and really enjoyed the new greens. Firm and fast and really improved the course when they switched. The course overall was excellent it really is a good test of golf and requires every club in the bag. Art from Lindenhurst NY

by Corey (Norfolk, VA) - 06/05/2014
Nice course, would definately golf it again.

by Leo (Sudbury, ON) - 06/03/2014
by James (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) - 06/03/2014
The course was in perfect condition with lush Tee boxes and fairways and immaculate greens that ran true. Surrounded by lush landscaping and trees the day was everything I could have hoped for golf. Loved the Island green and the Island fairway which I was fortunate enough to carry and reach the green in two. Pace of play was good and did not feel slowed down or rushed all day. Definitely add this course to your list of places to play.
by John (Washington, MI) - 06/02/2014
Played King's North after having played the West Course in the morning. Greens were much faster on the West Course. Very nice shape. Have played it before and enjoyed it. Grill staff is a little unfriendly and seem to have poor customer service attitudes.
by Dan (Owosso, MI) - 06/02/2014
by Dave (Miamisburg, OH) - 05/27/2014
Long walk from where you must leave the fairway with the cart...sometimes don't know distance remaining to green and have to walk quite a ways with several clubs after parking the cart behind green.
by Anthony (Farmingville, NY) - 05/27/2014
It's ok not up to all the hype
by Jack (Austin, TX) - 05/27/2014
by Ken (Stayner, ON) - 04/30/2014
As before for the time of year the course was in great shape would like to see it in late summer or fall
by Brad (Burlington, ON) - 04/30/2014
Again, slowish greens
by James (Hazleton, PA) - 04/30/2014
Just a great place to enjoy golf. It was everything you could want when you play golf. This was truly a perfect course to play
by Jeff (Avenel, NJ) - 04/29/2014
by Andrew (Waitsfield, VT) - 04/29/2014
Greens were in bad shape
by Dayrell (Haymarket, VA) - 04/29/2014
Golf course needs work I have played this course 15 years now. Greens are new and some are turning in the wrong direction maintaining Superior Quality is always a lot of work.
by Henrik (Copenhagen, OT) - 04/25/2014
Fantastic design course, a bit scruffy condition everywhere caused by to many rounds played on the course I think, Industry feel, not personal or friendly
by Frank (Palos Heights, IL) - 04/25/2014
Beautiful course, unfortunately got rained out. Will pick it up again next trip.

by John (Orland Park, IL) - 04/16/2014
by Mike (Peabody, MA) - 04/09/2014
Everything at MBN is great very challenging course but in great condition as usual. Starter was great and had a good personality.
by Jason (Grand Rapids, MI) - 04/08/2014
by David (Norwich, CT) - 04/03/2014
We call this the Grand Daddy of the courses (like playing in the Rose bowl). Course condition, layout, and service has always been top notch
by Jared (Pikeville, NC) - 04/02/2014
How much water the course holds after a big rain
by Gordon (Yarmouth, NS) - 04/02/2014
Fairways and greens in excellent condition. Very friendly starter and course staff.

Great course, loved the Gambler hole.
by Pat - 02/28/2014
Played Kings North 2/25/14. Fairways, rough and tee boxes in great shape. Greens were a little fast and a few greens were iffy in spots. Traps, if you end up in them, as i do from time to time, easy to get out of do to depth of sand. Nonetheless, enjoyed the time with friends and had a good round golf, too. Always do enjoy a round of golf at any of the three courses at Myrtle Beach National. Really can't go wrong on any of them.
by Ryan (Charleston, SC) - 02/13/2014
Thought it was a beautiful course!
by Andrew (Mount Pleasant, SC) - 02/13/2014
Have been playing this course since my junior golf days. Exceptional layout, unique hole designs, and greens run about a 12 on the stimp and roll true. I would rate this as one of the top 5 courses on the Grand Strand.
by Jim (Lima, OH) - 02/13/2014
Was a rather cold windy day and there was a great deal of water to handle. The gambler hole was very hard to figure how to play and we all lost a ball to that hole. There seemed to be no place to bail out to and still shoot a decent score on that hole. Much beeter greens
by Cheryl (Abingdon, MD) - 01/10/2014
Love the layout. Conditions are always excellent. Love the gambler and the par 3's. Would have liked to have a yardage book. Considering the price, a yardage book should be included. But the gps was adequate.
by Jignesh (West New York, NJ) - 12/09/2013
Challenging and rewarding course for a golfer. Loved the gambler. The staff was helpful. The starter allowed me the flexibility to hit a few balls on the range although I was running tight for the tee time.
by Ken (Georgetown, ON) - 12/09/2013
Third time playing King's North. Hard test and weather was cold and rainy so it made it even tougher. Will always recommend this course to others.
by Morgan (Pickerington, OH) - 12/06/2013
Easy short cuts to each hole and an estimated time of starting (we were told 9a shotgun, but waited about a half hour or so before we actually began).
by Will (Blackville, SC) - 12/02/2013
Top of the line
by Kevin (Aiken, SC) - 12/02/2013
GPS is great but mine didn't work.
by Bruce (Milwaukee, WI) - 11/26/2013
Wonderful playable design for all handicaps. Gambler hole a real treat. You must play this course. I will come back every time I am at the beach
by Mitch (Springfield, VA) - 11/15/2013
Just a fun and challenging course to play!
by Gary (Mon-Tremblant, QB) - 11/12/2013
Fertilizer was applied to the greens but starter didn't provide that information ahead of time. Cold misty day, so ball was covered in fertilizer after each putt. Lady on beverage cart didn't appear to enjoy her job.
by Pat and Stu (Indianapolis, IN) - 10/29/2013
by Douglas (Manchester, CT) - 10/25/2013
by Wesley (Warwick, NY) - 10/24/2013
This was my favorite of the four courses. It's challenging enough, but playable for intermediate level golfers. The greens and fairways all in great shape.
by Dave - 10/22/2013
King's North was our premium course of the 3 we played during our annual trek to the Grand Strand, and it is a great course. Upon arrival, the staff is focused and efficient at getting you out to the course. The design is really something special, with a lot of variety to the design, and lots of tees for all skill levels. There are a lot of smiles on the course, from the island green with the S C bunkers to the gambler hole and others. The course was also very fair, playable but reasonable for our group with handicaps that ranged from 16 to 33. Conditioning was very good, and the greens were particularly impressive because they were quick, true and consistent from one hole to the next. The dedication of the staff was visible in workers moving leaves (we played in October) and smoothing tee boxes between groups. There was only one rather large negative for us: pace of play was much too slow, due to a packed tee sheet that needed more time between groups. The scorecard indicates they expect your round to take 4 hours and 36 minutes. Ours was closer to 4 hours and 50 minutes. All the players we saw were pretty good and pretty quick, there were just too many groups on the course at the same time. I asked my buddies for whom I plan our annual trip, and they both indicated we would have gladly have paid another $15 - $20 each to eliminate the wait....on.....every....shot. If we come back to Myrtle Beach at a less crowded time of year, we would love to play this one again, but not during the busy seasons of April or Sept./Oct.
by Mike (Orleans, ON) - 10/03/2013
One of our favourite courses.
by James (Horsham, PA) - 09/30/2013
Great course
by Tim and Stormie (Hodgeville, KY) - 09/30/2013
My favorite, it was so much fun
by Sanford (Hempstead, NY) - 09/30/2013
Great course, will be back next time to MB to play golf
