Myrtle Beach National - King’s North

  • Overall: - 8.93

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.

  • 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

  • Tom G - Course was well maintained and cart path only because of the recent rain and watering from growing season. We may need to schedule in different time frame because of the age groups. Too much to walk for the older folks. :-) Loved the course but couldn't justify cost with so many courses here and needing to walk. - 11/18/2015 - 7

  • 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
