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.

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.

Course is in excellent shape. Tee Boxes, Fairways & Greens are super. Nice Par 3's & Par 5's

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!

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.

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.

Course was in good shape throughout. Fun shorter layout, but I prefer the West layout (but that's a personal thing). Not overly tough, staff was fine (MBN is a golf factory & very busy though). This is good value for the $$$ in MB.

Starter was real helpful, didn't know the roughs would be brown.

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??
Back-to-back rounds aren’t for everyone. For those electing a jam-packed day of golf, South Carolina’s course-loaded Grand Strand has options galore for a morning-afternoon combination. Sure, several locations host multiple golf courses. But we’ve got something else in mind.
Out on the course, a few light beers from the drink cart or out of the cooler you hope isn't dripping on your clubs hits the spot. For some, the hours after the round are about finding something more: Better drinks, better food, better environment.
One of Myrtle Beach’s most popular golf tournaments returns Easter weekend when Myrtle Beach National Golf Club – an award-winning 54-hole Arnold Palmer-designed complex – hosts the 13th Annual Junior Golf Shootout from March 25-26.
By Wednesday morning, scores of visiting golfers were strolling the grounds at Grande Dunes Resort Club just as they would on your typical, ideal day for a round of fall golf on the Grand Strand. With temperatures in the low 70s paired with brilliant, clear-blue skies and a light breeze, this course – along with the vast majority of golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area – was back to business as usual.
