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.

King's North in great shape, always enjoy playing here with my group



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.



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.



Continues to be a favorite,staff was outstanding and course in great shape. Will continue to be a must play.



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.

Sean (Centreville, VA)


It was great experience.



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.



For 3 course facility called MB National, I expect adequate bathrooms and a much better grill and pro shop.



Great experience from parking the car to pulling out of the driveway. Staff was excellent, well organized and friendly. Huge clubhouse with plenty of merchandise. Course was fantastic...greens perfect, many memorable holes, i.e. The Gambler, island green. Top notch will be back for years to come.

Enjoy the layout and challenge of the course. The location is convenient when staying at the beach.

Gilbert (Ottawa, ON)


Very good.

Bob (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Living in Myrtle Beach, I have played King's North several times this year. As always, the course is well manicured, although the greens were not as fast as expected...not that they were slow by any means. However, surprisingly, the cover of winter rye grass is not as good as would be expected at a premium course. A word of caution from a single digit will find more than a few forced carries over water, which can wear you out with the significant fairway irrigation required to keep winter rye grass healthy. So, give the tees you select to play from due consideration.

Rick (Thamesford, ON)


We were playing a twosome and were trying to play quickly to beat the rain. Caught up to the threesome ahead by the sixth hole and had to wait on every hole. Missed the last three holes do to a storm. Never saw a ranger the whole time on the course.

Mike (Salisbury, MD)


Very challenging but well maintained course.

Tom (Greer, SC)


Very good.



Loved the starter who gave us the opportunity to play alone (our twosome) with out being paired up to strangers, really appreciated that. The most beautiful course and clubhouse seen, within the 5 different clubs we visited in our trip to Myrtle Beach.

Stephen (Mount Pleasant, SC)


Wonderful experience. I highly recommend it.

Gary (Leland, NC)


Very good.

Neil (Peterborough, ON)


Nice course, good experience, again.

Bob (Lincoln, NE)


Nice course.

Chris (Rutherfordton, NC)


Had a great time at King's North. That's one tough course to play. I will be back. Thank you!

Tom (Quincy, MA)


Great course.

Ed (Somerdale, NJ)



Richard (Aston, PA)


Pace of play too slow, too many golfers.

Michael (Philadelphia, PA)


Our favorite course to play...challenging..lots of water holes, tons of traps, hilly fairways, dog legs fun to play...I refer to it as a strategy course, where have to pick your landing spots...IF one can execute them!

Vince (Burlington, ON)



Reco (Lisle, IL)


Great course!

Robert (E. Patchogue, NY)


It had rained all week before so it was a bit soggy, understandably cart paths only but very nice course. Would never pay the $120 fees here again though. This is NOT Tru Blu or Caledonia. $70 course in its best condition.

Rick (Taunton, MA)


Too wet.

John (Naperville, IL)


Great shape every year.

Gerry (Crystal Lake, IL)



Joe (Barrington, IL)


Kings North - Impeccable!

Richard (Wichita Falls, TX)


Beautiful course, like new top line rental clubs. Pro shop excellent staff. At special rate of $55 would play again and again.

Ed (Ocala, FL)





Great course.

Chris (Quincy, MA)


Great greens & fairways, very playable. Will definitely be back next trip.



(Would like to have know prior to play) that greens were recently aerated.

Paul (Mississauga, ON)


While very playable course still recovering from punching and top dressing of greens.

Noel (Waldorf, MD)


Very beautiful and challenging course I will surely recommend to whoever I talk to ... Staff are very cordial and very considerate, they know that a good number of people who play here are from other states. I really appreciate the STARTER because after the hold due to rain the starter before we continued on the 10th, he greeted me and addressed me by my name, and that was really something. Bless his heart ... And because of that I shoot 3 over on my back nine! And almost birdied the last hole by only an inch! See what this SIMPLE THING WILL CHANGE SOMEONES GAME! Or I may also say someONE'S DAY! ...

Jeffrey (Pickerington, OH)


For $85, the customer service could have been much better. The starter and beverage cart ladies were surly. Little course information was provided by the starter. Much of the course had been top dressed with something resembling a mixture of mulch and mud. The greens were incredibly slow and vertical cut markings were still evident. And we were told the course condition was an 8 out of 10. Hardly.

Chris (Tallmadge, OH)


Course was in good shape. Loved the layout, true Carolina course. I would definitely play here again during my next trip to the area.

Stephen (Huntington, WV)


This course has a great layout; however, sadly we will not be playing this course again. The first problem was with the course conditions. I would expect a company with any integrity would notify customers of the course conditions. We booked our rounds online in May; however, there was no mention of the aerification of the course. The course was punched 3 days before we played. Had we been notified, we would have played another MBN course. To add insult to injury, the service was appalling. We had to get our bags out of the car and request the clubs be loaded on a cart. The shop attendant's service was surly at best. We will never be playing another course owned or managed by Myrtle Beach National.

Steve (Birmingham, Al)


Service in the grill was great. One of the best turkey and Swiss on marbled rye I've had in a long time. Encountered a rude-unaware course attendant that encroached upon us unnecessarily during our finishing hole. His incompetence was not enough to damping our overall great experience at MBNKN



Excellent!! Me and my 12 year old daughter played today, and course was in great shape. Very enjoyable experience. Only complaints would be water on course is not very cold and cart girl, while we seen twice, said she was heading in for the day at 330 or so. Still quite few playing at that time it seemed. Other than that a very fair, beautiful golf course!

Richard (Grand Island, FL)


Best course ever

James (Murrells Inlet, SC)


No rangers took 5 1/2 htd to play very slow group in front would not let I'd play thru. Beverage cart came around after 13 holes



Played the King's North course and really enjoyed the new greens. Firm and fast and really improved the course when they switched. The course overall was excellent it really is a good test of golf and requires every club in the bag. Art from Lindenhurst NY

Christopher (Harrisburg, PA)



Corey (Norfolk, VA)


Nice course, would definately golf it again.
