South Creek at Myrtle Beach National

Given a lack of distance combined with beautifully maintained terrain and a stellar background, it’s of little surprise that the SouthCreek Course at Myrtle Beach National has found itself honored by voting panels recognizing top rounds for women and seniors.

But typecasting SouthCreek as anything but a solid, all-inclusive track is a disservice simply because it weaves its way through the pre-existing forest the property calls home. 

“That’s a shotmaker’s course there. You have to play the ball differently,” first assistant professional Brian Lewis said. “You don’t have to hit a driver every hole. It’s a thinker’s course.”

Sage advice, especially starting off the back nine. The par-5 beauty requires a straight and steady drive off the tee onto a slim fairway. Those choosing to risk putting everything into the driver and who succeed in getting enough of the right kind of distance up the right side then may have an opportunity to cut the corner of a dogleg around a pond onto the green. But as most find, it’s not the smart play; nor is it the necessary one.

As most will find, reaching nearly all of the greens in regulation is a matter of strategy, not brute strength.

nice course tight fairways excellent condition
by Zach - 10/02/2016
This was one of my favorite courses down in Myrtle Beach. It's not the longest course out there but you have to think on every shot. Also I got a hole in 1 on number 17 helps. In all though it's one of the most beautiful courses out there.
by Gary - 09/30/2016
I just finished the slowest round I've ever played in Myrtle Beach and I play here a lot. When we made the turn to the front (which was our back nine), there was 7 foursomes waiting. I'm and not exaggerating, 7 groups. Double teeing is fine, but this was ridiculous. Course was actually decent, but not enjoyable at all.
by Ted - 08/24/2016
Course is in excellent shape tee to green. Greens are running fast. Pace of play was 4 hrs. for our foursome. Lots of different holes.
by Ted - 04/04/2016
Course is in excellent shape. Tee Boxes, Fairways & Greens are super. Nice Par 3's & Par 5's
by Bob F. - 03/27/2016
A great course that everyone can play. The layout is fun but challenging and can be enjoyed by people of all handicap ranges. Conditions were great as typical of all Myrtle Beach National courses. A course to put on your list for sure!
by William - 03/17/2016
Top notch best course ever played. For this time of year, excellent course enjoyed playing with my buddy's. Could not have had a better day of golf. Thinks to staff for their friendliness.
by Mike - 01/23/2016
Course was in excellent condition and allowed carts in fairways, a big plus for my group. Greens are nice, roll very true, don't over read the break on this course. Our wives also enjoy playing here. Great pace of play. Friendly staff throughout.
by Mike - 02/11/2015
Love this golf course. Course was in great shape. Good pace of play.
by Stephen (Sharon, MA) - 01/06/2015
Starter was real helpful, didn't know the roughs would be brown.
by Kyle (Edgewater, MD) - 12/14/2014
Golf course best part of this club - Service needs help, pro shop staff had other priorities on day I was there (not helpful), Grill service was non existent, could not get a beer after round employees were on break. 16 guys stop to spend money and no one available to serve food/drink??

This is an older course with a good layout. The pace of play could be better, but it is the height of the fall golf season. The practice range is very average. The grass cover in the fairways is very good, but drainage issues which force cart off of the fairways well out from many greens need to be addressed. The greens had reasonably good pace to them. All in all, a very enjoyable golfing experience.
by Randy (La Plata, MD) - 10/30/2014
Excellent golf course that really made it a challenge. Had same problems with approach shots as Possum Trot. Hard greens surrounded by extremely soft approach area. Would definitely play this one again.
by Michael (Halifax, MA) - 10/25/2014
Greens did not roll smooth and seemed too long and fuzzy.
by Rick (Philadelphia, PA) - 10/21/2014
Very regal. You felt like you were stepping into golf history.
by Donald (Bradford, MA) - 10/16/2014
Very happy you guys have it working perfect. Didn't wait at any hole and we kept pace with the groups just fine, awesome job, we also played the West Course. Couldn't have had a better time. We will be back.

by Ron (Easley, SC) - 09/27/2014

(Would like to have known prior to play) the likelihood of being able to use carts off paths.
by Tammy (S. Fulton, TN) - 09/21/2014
Excellent course!
by Mark and Margaret - 09/14/2014

The course was in great shape. We started at the 10th at 8am. Tough par 5 into the early morning sun. Course started out a little wet but quickly dried up. Greens very fast and tough. Full round in about 4 hours. Would play again!!
by Bill (Herriman, UT) - 10/09/2013
by Steve (Southhampton, PA) - 09/23/2013
Great course conditions. will play again
by Frank - 08/15/2013
Although the course had been recently aerified, the greens were very playable and did not distract from an enjoyable round of golf. We enjoyed the variety of challenges that the course presented with sole long holes, some short holes and some holes that presented options in strategy for the golfer. The pro shop staff, cart man, and the starter were kind and courteous before and after our round of golf. We had an wonderful experience and will definitely return to play again. We especially want to try hole # 10 again (par 5).
by Todd (Mount Juliet, TN) - 06/02/2013
by Darren - 04/29/2013
Good conditions. Decent layout, fair landing areas. Greens were good, but not overly fast. They had you teeing off on the back of the driving range on an upslope, hitting off of more sand than grass. Conditions on the course were very good. Staff not the friendliest at bag drop, this place is more a factory than the normal course here. Would play again though as good value for the $$$.

by Timothy - 02/06/2013
We played on 2/5/13 and the course was in pretty good shape. We had an afternoon tee time so the greens were a little beat up and bumpy from all the morning play, but they were playable. The staff was great and friendly and the rangers were doing a good job keeping the pace. We got around in just about 4 hours.
by Jordan - 01/01/2013
Played here today and really, really enjoyed the course. I've played a bunch of courses in the area and this was my favorite so far. Course was in fantastic condition for the end of December. The pace of play was pretty bad, the round took about 5 hours. The starter did say that play was backed up because of frost delay. I feel confident guessing that all 3 of the Myrtle Beach National courses are usually backed up, so I wasn't surprised that it was a slow round. The layout was great and the course was gorgeous. The rough was all dormant and dead and the fairways were bright green, maybe that is why I found the course so visually appealing? I'll have to give it or one of the other MBN courses a try this summer to see if that is why.

Rather narrow.
by Jim (Pensacola, FL) - 12/05/2012
Tee boxes chewed up and fairways cut so short the ball did not set up and felt like we were playing on the ground. Crappy fairways led to an unpleasant experience for us. This is the 5th year here and the worst conditions.
by Gerald (Commack, NY) - 12/04/2012
by Harold (Windsor, ON) - 11/19/2012
Crowded, slow play ... trying to get as many golfers as possible out on the course.

I loved the course, it was a great course to play and all the staff was so nice. I will play it again.

Don't have to be a bomber to play and enjoy this course. Excellent condition, as always.
by Patrick - 10/11/2012
Loved the layout. Course is in great shape. Very lady-friendly course and easy to get around. Chose this as our first course of the week, since there are very few blind or carry shots. Water comes into play on a couple of holes. My sky caddie and yardage on the sprinkler heads were together. Sand was a bit difficult. Greens putted true, although a little firm - expect some role when attacking flag.

Found the course a little tight for my game, had I known there were houses all around I would have booked somewhere else. But it's a nice layout and challenging, they had sanded the greens so that was disappointing for us.
by Mark - 07/01/2012
Greens and fairways have been plugged recently. Had to improve my lie a lot. Overall I would give it a solid 8. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Very positive experience.
by Eddie - 06/18/2012
It has been a few years between rounds on SouthCreek course. Just like I remember. Great greens and fairways. As a higher handicap player it was a little too tight and way too many houses come into play with out of bounds. It is a great course, just bring extra balls as going onto the homeowners land is a no-no. FYI - On the 18th hole the sprinklers came on and soaked our bags and our cart. Pro shop said sorry, have a good day. No offer to dry our stuff, nothing. Rest of the outside guys were great.
by Dan K - 05/26/2012
4-hour round was nice and friendly staff but course layout and greens are very average.
by Dave (Richmond, VA) - 05/03/2012
Greens were not in good shape.
by Anthony (Spartanburg, SC) - 04/29/2012
The course was in good shape overall. The greens and fairways were nice but the rough in some areas was in poor shape. Personally I didn't care much for it, there was too much out of bounds for me and fairways are kinda narrow. Scenery was OK, but nothing compared to some of the other courses in that area. If your going to play an MBN course, play King's North; its amazing.
by Robert (Balderson, ON) - 04/25/2012
Very good.
by Ronald (Powell, OH) - 04/19/2012
Very good.
by J. Daniel - 04/12/2012
Staff was friendly and professional. Greens on the front nine were in bad shape (burnt). Rest of course was in decent shape.
by Ed K - 03/02/2012
MB Nat'l SouthCreek gets a higher rating than Tradition, and an equal rating to MB Nat'l North? Wonder what these golfers were smoking? SouthCreek has very narrow fairways, and is framed with countless residences from tee to green. May be a great course, but only for the true shot makers!
by Mark (Chester, Va.) - 02/09/2012
Overall good experience.
by John (Richmond, Va.) - 02/09/2012
Good experience.
by Timothy - 02/02/2012
We played on 1/31/12. Starter was nice enough to get us started a little early. The greens were my only complaint here. Some were hard and fast and other soft and sluggish. You have to be very cautious when putting due to the inconsistencies, but the course overall was in good condition. This course is TOO lady friendly with the par 5's just long par 4's. My wife would not allow me to score them as par 5's, so she played it as a par 69 course.
by Jeramie (Granite Falls, N.C.) - 01/28/2012
Very good.
by John (Shelby Twp., Mich.) - 01/23/2012
Course in great shape for January.
by Mary Ann (Spring Hill, Fla.) - 11/30/2011
Very nice pro shop.
by Raymond (Baltimore, Md.) - 11/20/2011
The new greens were great. Very hard, but really enjoyed them. We play this course every year because it is very friendly (easier) for the women, but also challenging for us men.
by Gerard (Wantagh, N.Y.) - 11/11/2011
Enjoyable golf.
by Kris (Crossville, Tenn.) - 11/08/2011
Great condition, as always.
by Lawrence - 10/20/2011
Very nice course. We will return to play the other courses.
by Bob - 10/19/2011
We will be back next year. Always a great place to start the golf trip.
by Peter (Coal Twp., Penn.) - 10/19/2011
Had to wait for late comers in large group ahead of us ... slow play.
by Mark (Hudson, N.H.) - 10/14/2011
Greens were fast and in excellent condition.
by Ben (Statesville, N.C.) - 10/01/2011
Good medium difficulty to warm up for the rest of the more difficult courses .Will probably never play again considering all of the choices at Myrtle, but will try King's North.
by Jerry (Sewickley, Penn.) - 09/24/2011
It was very nice. I will play it next time from the blue tees.
