Myrtle Beach National - King’s North Course

  • Overall: - 9.10

Upon completion of this course’s 1995 transformation from its original North Course roots, King’s North at Myrtle Beach National immediately became one of the Grand Strand’s “go to” premium golfing options.

Iconic holes abound in Arnold Palmer & Francis Duane’s redesign – including the island green, par-3 12 hole that pays homage to its home state with bunkers shaped like its initials; the par-4 18th hole, with 40-plus bunkers lining the route from tee to green; and the ever-popular par-5 6th hole, known to all who test it as “The Gambler.”
Featuring an island fairway option, the hole that pays homage Kenny Rogers’ hit song teases you with obvious “know when to hold ‘em … know when to fold ‘em” options. Take the long route, and “The Gambler” plays as a more conventional 3-shot hole that wraps from right to left around the water; or take the ultimate risk by hitting your driver long enough onto the island fairway to give you a shot at getting up in two – but with an expansive water hazard separating you from the story you’ll be sharing with your golf buddies for a lifetime.

Myrtle Beach Golf Insider
  • Jong - Love playing this course. Was a little disappointed with the greens. Several thin areas and a little bumpy. Usually the greens are in very good shape, but not on the day we played. Staff was very helpful. Really like the layout of the course. Will continue to play the course in the future. Just hope that greens will be in a little better shape. - 06/16/2016 - 10

  • W S - Was a wet day but what a great day at MBN Kings North. I'm a little partial having my 1st hole in one on #12. Best part was having my friend Paul witness the shot :) will return. - 06/07/2016 - 9

  • Paul Steers - Continues to be a favorite,staff was outstanding and course in great shape. Will continue to be a must play. - 03/19/2016 - 10

  • Greg - As always an excellent course. Conditions were nice will play again next year - 03/07/2016 - 10

  • Gary - Course was challenging, the Gambler hole was memorable to play. Would play again. Course was crowded on every hole. Tee times could have been spaced farther apart for more steady playing. Waited at every tee and every fairway shot. - 11/23/2015 - 9
