West Course at Myrtle Beach National

One of the more recent area courses to be given 4.5 stars by Golf Digest for “Places to Play,” the West Course at Myrtle Beach National is a fantastic mix of just the right amount of distance and doglegs, sand and water.

Much like its big brother, King’s North, West is an Arnold Palmer design that cuts through the Carolina Forest section of Myrtle Beach. Playing at 6,100 yards for most and as long as 6,800 yards from the back tees, it also utilizes a house-free, gimmick-free approach to the game.

“It’s a very playable golf course,” first assistant professional Brian Lewis said. “It’s not tricked up. You don’t have things hiding around the corner on you.”

The par 4s here aren’t overbearing, and the par 3s - including a rare one on No. 18 - aren’t overly encumbered by bunkers.

Before you get to the finisher, though, West gives you one more crack at a hitting a successful driver on No. 17. The par 5 doglegs left around a tree line, but not before some considerable distance. Clear the edge of those pines, and you’re looking at as little as 200-yards straight into the Mini Verde Bermuda green.

Course is in very good shape tee to green. Some of the best kept bunkers in MB. Pace of play was outstanding. Staff always very nice. Not overly difficult course but enough challenges to make it interesting. Good warm up course to start you golf vacation or just a nice place to play if you live here. Holes 15 thru 18 are nice finishing holes. Recommend playing here.
by Ted - 07/14/2016
Tee Boxes & Fairways are in excellent shape. Greens have recently aerified but still putted very true & fast. Staff were very friendly & seemed concerned because of the heat. Kept reminding us to drink plenty of fluids. Pace of play was good 4hrs 10mins with foursome & extreme heat
by David - 06/29/2016
Opening course of our trip, so quite a gentle start. Not too taxing, nothing stunning but a nice solid course where everything is laid out in front of you. Not bad condition either.
by Mark - 06/24/2016
Enjoyed playing this course, it is open and fairly easy with no water. Good starting course to get warmed up. Should have played the back tees or hit 3-wood of the tee as there were many dogleg holes where a 240yd drive means your through the fairway. Greens were decent and rolled well but had bare spots. We were early for our tee time but were hurried to play with the other twosome who was even earlier than us. I would play this again as a warm-up course, but the King's North course is a much more challenging layout but not in any better condition than the West course.
by Danny and Darlene - 04/07/2016
Best course we played all week. Greens and fairways in great shape. Played with two guys from Myrtle Beach area who were a great help. Staff in pro shop as well as greeters were excellent. Would recommend this course to anybody. Great course for men and women very fair. Can't comment on grill since we didn't eat here but the club house is beautiful and very well kept.
by Ted - 03/25/2016
Bag drop very busy with 3 courses but enough help to move you along. Counter people not overly friendly. Pace of play on front nine was very good, Back nine slowed down quite a bit. Wide fairways, lots of bunkers around greens. Course was in excellent condition.
by David - 03/05/2016
Greens are very nice right now. The course was very wet due to all night rain but it was still in pretty nice shape. It's a very fair and fun course to play.
by Roland - 01/23/2016
Nice course in good shape. It was cart path only, although it appeared to be dry enough to ride on the course.
by John - 06/11/2015
Played in the afternoon after an all-morning rain. Even with the wet, the course was in excellent conditions and fun to play. Different set-up than that the North course, the West course served up enough challenges, especially having traveled over 7 hours that day to play.

Very good.
by Mac (Greensboro, NC) - 12/05/2014
Very good overall.
by Charles (Ellenboro, NC) - 11/24/2014
Average MB golf course! Good layout! Good job setting pin for average golfers! Our group has been playing for 27 years, and have played about all courses at MB. Overall good course!
by Crystal (Urbanna, VA) - 11/16/2014
by Bill (Katy, TX) - 11/05/2014
Very good.
by Dewey (Danville, VA) - 10/21/2014
OK course at best, hate the Bermuda Greens, too long for Seniors even from the gold tees.
by George (Pittsburgh, PA) - 10/19/2014
by John (New Windsor, NY) - 10/14/2014
Very friendly staff, had a car problem a staff member gave me a jump and told me were the nearest Honda service center was.
by Doug (Cobourg, ON) - 10/14/2014
Loved it -- great course.

We have a group of 20 guys that comes down every year. Everyone was very happy with the course. The tees were excellent, fairways were excellent and the greens were in great shape and fast. I would highly recommend this course for anyone planning a golf trip. I've played both the other MBN courses and this one is just as nice as the others. King's North has a few fancier holes, but we really enjoyed the West course. Beautiful holes, well manicured. The only problem I had was my cart stopped working on the second hole. I had to make 2 calls to the clubhouse and finally 18 minutes later they brought me a new cart. Being on the second hole near the green, the clubhouse was only 300 yards away. Three other groups went through while my group waited. I finally decided to walk to the clubhouse to get a new cart myself. I got halfway there and noticed someone was finally on the way. It happens, but they were very slow in responding. It's the only bad mark I gave them.

Hard to rate the course because it was so wet from the rain.

Very playable course.
by Lonnie (Pilot Mountain, NC) - 06/02/2014
by Scott (Brooklyn, NY) - 06/02/2014
Traditional starting course for our group because there isn't too much trouble wide of the fairway (for the rare ball not down the center). MBN clubhouse and staff always nice.

by Brook (Niagara Falls, ON) - 04/29/2014

Really good
by Hugh (Montrose, NY) - 04/25/2014
Attendants at lot were stars - very friendly, helpful people. Starter was a grumpy, mean man.
by Louis (Sainte Adele, QC) - 04/17/2014
by Jim (Walpole, MA) - 04/09/2014
Starters were good....Attendants very disorganized as usual . They have no idea about your tee times / when to load you up or when to send you out to the starter. No one is in charge out there. We had to grab our own carts and load our own bags on to our carts, while attendants socialize with others...We have been playing myrtle national for over 15 yrs and your attendants out front are always this way. we have come to expect it at Myrtle National. Other courses we play at run so much more efficiently/ in control when it comes to the out front attendants. ,,,But we keep coming back because we like your courses and club house
by Daniel (Hazleton, PA) - 03/17/2014
Really good
by John (Harrisburg, PA) - 03/07/2014
My favorite course in Myrtle Beach. Love hole ##18.
by Timothy - 02/25/2014
We played on 2/23/14 and had a good day with the weather and the course. It's an easy course relative to the other Myrtle Beach courses. It is a nice starter course for people just starting their golf for the year. The course is wide open with plenty of room for error and recovery. The greens were in good shape and a little tricky with some good slope. I would recommend it to high handicappers and beginners.
by Terry (Tulsa, OK) - 02/13/2014
by David (Owasso, OK) - 02/13/2014
Beautiful course! Very well laid out and manicured.
by Earnie (Pasadena, MD) - 02/06/2014
We've played MBN West a number of times and always enjoyed it until this trip. Although the staff was technically correct, we felt they could have been a little more player friendly. Won't be back for awhile.
by Don - 01/03/2014
My 2 sons and I played MB National on Dec.30.(I have played the course before). MB National-West is an excellent course. From the regular tees the average golfer has a chance to score well if the short game is working. I like the fact that from the men's tees, the course is not too long and most of the fairways are forgiving. The course was in good shape and the staff was excellent. I shot an 82 which is good for me. Best course on the strand for the money.

by Robert (Savannah, GA) - 11/19/2013
by Richard - 11/05/2013
Great layout, greens were excellent. A fun 18 hole course. Starter was a little pushy. Just pulled our cart up and he rushed us off the first tee in a hurry and we ended up waiting on groups in front of us most of the front 9. We couldn't even warm up.
by Francis (Leesburg, FL) - 10/29/2013
Again, wet due to overseeding. very good course

I really liked the fact I could find my yardage from anywhere after my drive. The greens are faster than im use to. Missed some short putts.
by John (Hampton, VA) - 10/07/2013
Beautiful course & grounds, well maintained. Staff treated me very nice.
by Elizabeth (Atlanta, GA) - 10/04/2013
Nice course. In good shape. Fun to play and staff very friendly. Played this course last year and again this year. Will stay at the top of my list of courses to play for next year!
by Luis (Chicago, IL) - 10/03/2013
Very nice course
by Richard (Greensboro, NC) - 10/03/2013
Good overall course. Nothing superior or lacking.
by Patti (Franklinton, NC) - 09/18/2013
The greens putted true even though they'd been sanded.
by Raymond (Hilliard, OH) - 09/17/2013
Excellent challenge, . Enjoyed the lack of water dangers, but enough trap and water to keep one honest
by Dan (Midland, NC) - 09/13/2013
One of the most enjoyable rounds I have ever played. Superb conditions and the staff treated me as if I were the most important person they had met. Ever.
by Mark (Carlisle, PA) - 09/13/2013
by Don (Dublin, OH) - 09/10/2013
Super fast greens but rolled true. Very nice layout. Teed off in the first group at 7:30, they doubled up the tees front and back. Made the turn at 9:10 and had to wait until 9:39 to tee off the back nine but pace was still about 2 hours for back nine. Very enjoyable round of golf.
by Sid (Searcy, AR) - 09/05/2013
Availability of chipping green.
by John (Medford, NJ) - 09/05/2013
by Lou (Montreal, QC) - 08/22/2013
Excellent conditions, greens rolled true, fairways well maintained. Excellent dollar value, highly recommended. Also played King's North, pristine.
by Reid - 08/20/2013
by David (Delmar, NY) - 08/16/2013
First time I have ever seen sprinkler heads in the middle of tee boxes! Did like having map at each hole with outline of hole showing water etc. very disappointed that grill closed when we made turn as we needed food and water and it was only 6 pm. No one there when we finished and there were groups behind us
by Todd (Syracuse, NY) - 08/15/2013
Played here over the weekend and I must say I was very impressed with the condition and layout of the course. With inviting fairways and rather large greens, this course is a golfers dream. Everyone in the Pro Shop was very friendly, especially the ladies behind the snack bar. Saw the beverage cart plenty of times throughout the day to keep us hydrated when it was scorching hot. I got a glimpse at the two other courses at the facility, King's North and South Creek, which was tempting to go play another 18 on either of those. Very pleased with my experience and Myrtle Beach National will always be on the list.
by Joe (Howell, NJ) - 08/12/2013
The course was nice but I wouldn't say anything stuck out as been great. Course was in decent shape and had some interesting holes. I was disappointed in the group of employees (starters) that were playing behind our group. They were rude and disrespectful to members of our foursome. We were playing at a good pace and still had to deal with them. Employees especially should cater to paying customers.
by Matthew (Forest, VA) - 08/02/2013
Well kept!! Nice course!
by Robert (Carlisle, PA) - 06/28/2013
We switched to the Southcreek course and really enjoyed the course.
by Dennis (Tewksbury, MA) - 06/20/2013
MBN is always a great place to play. Offer a lot of options from King's North, South and West. Staff is very friendly and helpful when needed.
by Louis (Jasper, GA) - 06/18/2013
by James (Alliance, OH) - 06/17/2013
Best I played on this trip - greens were good no blind water, just a good course
by Dale (St Louis, MO) - 05/30/2013
The course was a blast, the starter was not very friendly and was rude. We Had a 9:06 start time when I handed the starter my receipt he said he would be right with us that it wasn't our turn, that we were 5 minutes early, then he sent 2 groups that had a 9:14 starting time out before us, even thou we were there before them.
by Amy (Forked River, NJ) - 05/14/2013
Should be more water coolers available on the course, not water fountains, those are not hygenic
by Dave (Ayr, ON) - 05/10/2013
Great, a little issue with tee times
by Calvin (Alexandria, VA) - 05/07/2013
Player friendly.
by Rick (Hernando, FL) - 05/07/2013
Starter was rude and impatient probably due to handling such a large volume of golfers.
by Dave (Mohurst, OR) - 05/07/2013
Its not Kings North by any means but still a great course It was in good shape and was great for my wife and son
by Jason (Cameron, NC) - 05/06/2013
The PRO shop was like a retail store very very busy and just pushing people through. BUT, the starters were very nice, most of the fairways were excellent, three or four didn't have a nice grass growth. The greens were excellent.
by Robert (Charlottesville, VA) - 04/29/2013
Had a wonderful time and a good round. Course seems very fair. Had my best round there.
by Richard (Smithtown, NY) - 04/25/2013

Great course in excellent condition. Pretty tough track from the Blue tees. 18 is 225yd par 3 over water. Lay-up to the right if you have any wind at all!
by Paul - 04/16/2013
Greens were slow and hard to read.
by Michael (Myrtle Beach, SC) - 03/29/2013
Thought the course was in great condition for this time of year. Thought the rate of play could have been better. Slow groups had rhythm all messed up for round
by Danny (Louisville, KY) - 03/28/2013
Rained, would like to come back
by Jackie (Toronto, ON) - 03/27/2013
The starter was a bit rude (as were some of the players waiting at the first tee... complaining about the tourists and how they shouldn't be allowed on the course!). Luckily we were playing with a very nice couple and the day turned out to be a lot of fun. Would definitely play here again as we loved the course and it was a good one to start with after not golfing for months!
by Kenny (Max Meadows, VA) - 03/27/2013
by Michael (Liverpool, NY) - 03/18/2013
Course was in great condition even with the dormant rough. Facillities were clean and grounds well manicured. Bag and proshop staff were great. Starter was ok...didn't really infom us about the course, no tee reccomendations for the mixed level group, was more concerned about time, than our enjoyment...only downside. Would certainly comeback to play the other courses.
by Joseph (Hilton, NY) - 03/11/2013
Very playable for all handicaps. Fairways are great but the lies are a little tight. Greens are challenging with many slopes and breaks. Could use a little more sand in bunkers.
by Mike (East Northport, NY) - 03/01/2013
by Jared - 02/26/2013
Played on Friday 2/22. Some rain and cold but MB National was great. Staff was friendly and helpful, even the nice ladies in the snack bar and restaurant. Course was fun, fairly flat but perfect for the day. I would go back again and play.
by Chris (Winston Salem, NC) - 02/20/2013
Course in excellent condition and everyone was very friendly.
by Mark (Greenville, SC) - 02/11/2013
Love the overseeded tees and fairways in the the winter time. Love that there are no homes on the course--not a residential golf course. All the greens, w/ very few exceptions were tilted from back to front--if you are above the hole, expect to three putt--very disconcerting. A lot of back and forth from one hole to the next on the front nine, back nine much better about that. Enjoyed the experience though--not sure I would go back w/ so many choices in Myrtle Beach, except to play the King's North course--that looks like a major step up from the West and South courses.
