The SouthCreek Course at Myrtle Beach National is the shortest of the three courses at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club and features waste bunkers, dogleg fairways and undulating Mini Verde greens.
This course requires accuracy off the tee, but if achieved can offer good scoring opportunities throughout your round. It features the dramatic par-5 10th hole that wraps as a dogleg right around a large lake; the par-3 13ththat showcases a small green with a large waste bunker leading up to it; and the par-4 finishing hole at 18, measuring 380 yards from the tips and playing as a dogleg left with a steep-faced bunker fronting the green requiring a forced carry to the green.
This Arnold Palmer design presents a strong test to your game, and offers a compelling option to include in your next Myrtle Beach golf getaway.

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??

Four Prime Times Signature Courses – including “The Granddaddy” of Myrtle Beach golf – serve as the dramatic backdrop for the nation’s premier golf event for retired servicemen and women. The 32nd Annual National Retired Military Golf Classic is set for May 27-30, 2015 at four of the Grand Strand’s top golf courses.
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.
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.
