Rated 4.5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” Guide in 2010, West Course at Myrtle Beach National is carved through secluded Carolina pines that provide golfers with the backdrop of nature. Its traditional layout and design offers wide fairways and large Mini Verde Bermuda grass greens that make for an enjoyable golf experience for players of all abilities.
Conveniently located off of Hwy. 501 in the heart of Myrtle Beach, West Course shares a common trait with its big brother, King’s North, in that it accentuates the natural setting with no housing in sight. The course includes open fairways and greens that, while open in front, are sloped heavily from back to front. All the par-4s play under 400 yards from the middle-back tees, and par-5s are all possible to reach in two, all playing under 500 yards.
The West Course finishes uniquely with a lengthy par-3 that features water running down the entire left-hand side.

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.

I prefer this layout vs SouthCreek. Both were in great shape & a good value for the $$$$. I will definitely play the West Course again. King's is the superior course here, but for the money you can't go wrong with any of the 3. Busy facility, but conditions were very good, especially considering the weather that Myrtle had recently seen. Good practice area. Staff friendly enough.

Always in good shape and the staff is always nice to deal with. They were doing a lot of work to the second hole with heavy equipment which was making a mess but other than that the course was in good shape.
It's a relatively short course and the rating is quite low but it's a fun course.

Call them underrated, undervalued or even under-appreciated. We call them five of the Grand Strand’s “Best Bang for the Buck.” Ian Guerin spotlights five courses you'll know were worth every dollar you spent.
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.
