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 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.

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??
