Myrtle Beach National - King’s North

  • Overall: - 8.92

It’s great to be King – and in the case of one of three premier layouts at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club, King’s North serves up an Arnold Palmer-designed gem offering several of the Grand Strand’s most memorable holes.

Redesigned by “The King” in 1996, King's North made its way onto Golf Digest's prestigious list of "America's 100 Greatest Public Courses - 2004" and Golf Digest's "Places to Play" has awarded it 4.5 stars ever since. It was also ranked among the "Top 100 Courses in America” by Golf For Women Magazine from 2000 to 2004.

King’s North features 18 of the most dramatic and picturesque holes you’ll ever encounter. The par-5 6th hole (nicknamed “The Gambler”) features an island fairway that offers a “risk-reward” shortcut to the green. If the island fairway is chosen it could leave a good chance at going for this green in two, thus the “Gamble.” However, a safe layup to the right and a short approach over water will always keep you guessing.

The par-3, island green 12th hole creates a challenge of its own. A miss to the right and you could find the water, miss left and you could find the distinctive “SC” bunkers that would leave a delicate bunker shot. And don’t forget the par-4 finishing hole at 18, featuring an array of 40 bunkers escorting you to an exciting finish of an exhilarating round.

Myrtle Beach Golf Insider
  • Bill - Great course!! Greens but true and each hole has it's own quality. Staff was outstanding and starter was very helpful with instructions. 18th hole is a beast. - 09/26/2015 - 10

  • Sean (Centreville, VA) - It was great experience. - 07/17/2015 - 9

  • Jim G. - Enjoyed the course very much. I have been coming to Myrtle Beach for over 30 years, and the greens at King's North today were the best I have ever seen in Myrtle Beach. The starter was extremely friendly. Started at 7:45 and finished in less than 4 hours. Carts were allowed on fairways. Bunkers were in excellent condition. In summary, I thoroughly enjoyed the course. - 07/13/2015 - 10

  • Jase - The course would have been a highlight of our 2 week trip but unfortunately we played it just after Tropical Storm Ana had passed by and the course was sodden, almost unplayable. Greens were in great shape and layout was great. As with all grills we encountered it was lacking somewhat but that seems to be a theme in MB. Florida courses certainly look after their patrons better. - 05/18/2015 - 8

  • Phil - For 3 course facility called MB National, I expect adequate bathrooms and a much better grill and pro shop. - 05/09/2015 - 7
