Myrtle Beach National – King’s North Course
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.
Are you ready?
Myrtle Beach National – King’s North Course Course Course Reviews
JamesDate Played: 02/18/2020
We play this course every year. We're here a month early this year. The course played tough. The greens were quick. Rolled true. The island par 3 had construction on the walls and wood cart paths. Didn't affect the course at all. They told us they would be done by April 1st for our spring trip. I would highly recommend putting this course on your card!
JohnDate Played: 01/28/2020
Great layout and conditions. Worth playing just for the 6th hole.
RayDate Played: 01/01/2020
One of our group's favorite layouts in Myrtle Beach. Friendly folks here--no houses on the course which is a plus as a couple people in our group spray the ball.
MichaelDate Played: 11/13/2019
Great course and very friendly staff--enjoyed the layout very much and will come back to play when it's a bit warmer
StephenDate Played: 11/12/2019
So we played today and the course was great the bar and food staff were terrific top notch. BUT the old grumpy in the pro shop sucked. I had a $27 gift card to use in the shop. I’m in the military and maybe one day after vets day I thought I may get a discount on some merchandise NOT THE CASES HERE I’m in the Canadian military and was told NO DISCOUNT FOR YOU PEOPLE. my purchase of some underwear came to $25.10 so I thought I can get a golf ball for three dollars for free but he still charge me the extra money $2.10 for the ball with a logo on. Thinking I’m going back to play there not a chance. I hope that old grumpy guys get what’s coming to him. SO UPSET.
First and foremost, I would like to thank for playing at Myrtle Beach National and for your feedback. I also would like to confirm that we do not allow our staff to offer additional discounts on merchandise, nor do we allow staff to give away merchandise for free. With that being said, I do apologize for comments that may have been taken out of context, but I find it unlikely that my staff would use those exact words or phrases, when informing a guest of our policies and procedures. The staff member in question has already been spoken to. Thank you again for you feedback. Ryan Ruddy, Head Golf Professional

We played 4 courses in the Myrtle Beach area, all of them very nice, but Kings North was our hands down favorite. There were 6 of us in the group and the other 5 were double digit handicappers - shooting mid-90’s and above - and they loved the course for its playability and beauty. The layout was fantastic. The golf shop was great as well. Overall, a five star experience.

Slow play was an issue, course design was beautiful, a little bit more groundskeeping work throughout would make this course 10/10.
DeniseDate Played: 09/26/2019
My favorite course I played during the week. Very challenging, especially the bunkers. Loved "The Gambler" hole, but played it safe. The starter was very friendly and helpful.

Excellent layout friendly staff good value
CoryDate Played: 08/16/2019
Fun course with some very unique and memorable holes. However, the fairways were not nearly as nice as some of the other course we played. Also, I think when someone books a round at any of your courses, they should be notified if the greens have been recently aerated. We would not have played here had we known this when we scheduled our tee time.
AaronDate Played: 08/08/2019
Beautiful and brutal. I like the beach by the ocean not here.
DavidDate Played: 08/07/2019
The course was mostly in great shape. The fairways were clean, the rough was rough, the greens were immaculate. My only disappointment was the poor maintenance in the sand traps. Maybe these are standard in SC, but not up North in New England. The sand traps...didn’t have much actual sand that wasn’t all matted and muddy. It certainly made me play my sand shots differently, but of the 5 or 6 traps I hit into, 4 or 5 times, my ball was in mud.
RyanDate Played: 08/05/2019
Great course with friendly staff. Coming from Oklahoma the course was pristine. There are very nice courses in OK but a very different experience in myrtle beach.
DanielDate Played: 08/01/2019
A very pleasant experience from our arrival through the pro-shop check-in to the ranger and our round. Course was in good shape and pace of play was reasonable.

ScottDate Played: 06/14/2019
Course was in decent shape. Bare spots in fairways and more noticed around greens. Had to hit off mats for range practice and that was not impressive for the reputation of this course/facility. Should have been told this before purchasing range balls.
LawrenceDate Played: 06/07/2019
Fantastic and fun gold course. Challenging without being overly penalizing. Has a few "stylized" holes like 5 and 12 that add character without being too gimmicky. A lot of fun.

A very pleasant experience, challenging yet the course gave you confidence in your stroke. Multiple hazards on every hole , encourages course management and club selection.
DaveDate Played: 05/31/2019
This is a great course to play. I have never seen a course like this that has cart paths go through waste bunkers. Very cool. Helps blend them into the course.
JoanDate Played: 05/25/2019
Great golf course, never disappoints. The Staff is super friendly and always willing to help you.
ChristianDate Played: 05/18/2019
Great, challenging experience. Busy in the mornings but by the time we were going around the back nine it had already slowed down. Me and my friends are high handicappers so we played best ball, but we had the time of our lives. We’ll be back ASAP. And don’t be afraid of the gambler, one of my buddies got it over! Just enjoy this beautiful course, regardless of your score.

JamesDate Played: 04/27/2019
It is a beautiful course and very well maintained. Unfortunately, I was paired with the most obnoxious three "golfers" I have ever met in my life. They were slow, were still drunk from the night before and were only interested in drinking more, discussing which strip club they wanted to go to that night and blasting a portable speaker. It made the round miserable.

CraigDate Played: 04/21/2019
My wife and I played the South Creek course in the am(first off) and loved it...finished that round and then took on Kings North after a quick bite to eat. I gambled and lost...just for the record...lol. Fantastic courses...fantastic shape. Vil is an awesome gentleman too...if you get him as your starter...you'll see what Im talking about. Great guy!!! My wife and I are already planning a return visit this fall...I need my revenge on the Gambler!!!
DavidDate Played: 04/17/2019
First time playing King's North and can see why it's the prized course of the 3 MBN courses. Loved it!

Interesting layout which takes full advantage of the surroundings. Course was in great shape, greens rolled very nicely. Would recommend and pay again.

Amazing! Played here 20+ hrs ago with my dad and two brothers. Had the opportunity to play it this week with my 9 yr old son. One of the best days of my life!
MikeDate Played: 04/16/2019
Nice course but always slow play on 2nd nine. Drop a tee time our keep play moving
AndrewDate Played: 04/14/2019
Very nice course. Busy. a lot of poor care from golfers - many divots not replaced or sanded on the approaches to greens especially, and on fairway. Many many pitch marks left on the greens, affecting putting. Needs starters to remind people, and rangers to actually enforce more rigorously, as it is ruining a great course.

RyanDate Played: 04/10/2019
The layout on Kings North was amazing. We played Kings North in the afternoon after a nice lunch in the clubhouse after finishing up the morning on the West Course. The course was in great shape and the facility was great. The one negative we had on the North Course was the pace of play. We played the West Course earlier in the day in just over 4 hours and the staff and rangers were excellent. For Kings North, we almost didn't get to finish the round after teeing off slightly after 2 PM because no rangers came out after we got to the turn (approximately 2.5 hours later). There were 2 groups ahead of us with 5 open holes ahead of them, but no rangers to move them along. We found out at the end of our round (slightly over 5 hours) that the rangers were sent home after the last group (the one following us) made the turn. If those two groups could have been pushed along, the round would have been closer to 4 hours and 15 minutes. We'll know next time that we should try to book for the morning round because everything moved perfectly when the rangers were there.

JasonDate Played: 07/11/2018
Ok.. I have played this course many times although it has been years. I must say that we were very disappointed!!! We played it on 7/11/18. The greens were absolutely horrible! I am not a green snob but they were non playable. I understand that things happen (disease, heat etc..) All I ask is be fair and adjust your prices accordingly or at the very least warn the customers. I paid $85.00 and felt totally ripped off!!!
DrDate Played: 06/05/2018
Called for tee time...quoted $49 to play only to be charged $62. Had no idea the greens were in such poor condition, but had to play auto 2 putt to get on and off the course. Great layout but one to avoid this summer.
MarkDate Played: 05/24/2018
Greens are in really horrible shape. Burned up between the winter grass and summer grass the ranger said. But, still charging full price as if the greens are immaculately kept.

King's North in great shape, always enjoy playing here with my group
DaveDate Played: 06/30/2017
Had booked first off tee time several months ago, but was placed behind another group. They obviously were way overmatched by the course. Waited on every shot and did not finish last 3 holes as rain moved in after 4:20 into round. No ranger in sight. Went to clubhouse after round to see about a rain check as we couldn't finish. When I explained how early we booked in advance, the staff said they did not have enough players for double teeing so they placed the back nine group in front of us. Any time we play on the point we play 31/2 to 3:45 rounds. Tremendously disappointed in staff's response to their booking error,will not play their again.
JongDate Played: 06/16/2016
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.
WDate Played: 06/07/2016
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.
TomDate Played: 11/18/2015
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.
SeanDate Played: 07/17/2015

JimDate Played: 07/13/2015
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.
PhilDate Played: 05/09/2015
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.

BobDate Played: 12/03/2014
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 handicapper....you 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.

RickDate Played: 11/23/2014
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.
MikeDate Played: 11/23/2014
Very challenging but well maintained course.
Paul-AndreDate Played: 11/13/2014

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! ...

Course was in good shape. Loved the layout, true Carolina course. I would definitely play here again during my next trip to the area.
JeffreyDate Played: 07/24/2014
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.
StephenDate Played: 06/24/2014
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.
SteveDate Played: 06/13/2014
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
JoshDate Played: 06/12/2014
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!

JamesDate Played: 06/03/2014
The course was in perfect condition with lush Tee boxes and fairways and immaculate greens that ran true. Surrounded by lush landscaping and trees the day was everything I could have hoped for golf. Loved the Island green and the Island fairway which I was fortunate enough to carry and reach the green in two. Pace of play was good and did not feel slowed down or rushed all day. Definitely add this course to your list of places to play.
JohnDate Played: 06/02/2014
Played King's North after having played the West Course in the morning. Greens were much faster on the West Course. Very nice shape. Have played it before and enjoyed it. Grill staff is a little unfriendly and seem to have poor customer service attitudes.

Long walk from where you must leave the fairway with the cart...sometimes don't know distance remaining to green and have to walk quite a ways with several clubs after parking the cart behind green.

Traps, if you end up in them, as i do from time to time, easy to get out of do to depth of sand. Nonetheless, enjoyed the time with friends and had a good round golf, too. Always do enjoy a round of golf at any of the three courses at Myrtle Beach National. Really can't go wrong on any of them.

Thought it was a beautiful course!
JimDate Played: 02/13/2014
Was a rather cold windy day and there was a great deal of water to handle. The gambler hole was very hard to figure how to play and we all lost a ball to that hole. There seemed to be no place to bail out to and still shoot a decent score on that hole. Much beeter greens
AndrewDate Played: 02/13/2014
Have been playing this course since my junior golf days. Exceptional layout, unique hole designs, and greens run about a 12 on the stimp and roll true. I would rate this as one of the top 5 courses on the Grand Strand.
CherylDate Played: 01/10/2014
Love the layout. Conditions are always excellent. Love the gambler and the par 3's. Would have liked to have a yardage book. Considering the price, a yardage book should be included. But the gps was adequate.
JigneshDate Played: 12/09/2013
Challenging and rewarding course for a golfer. Loved the gambler. The staff was helpful. The starter allowed me the flexibility to hit a few balls on the range although I was running tight for the tee time.
KenDate Played: 12/09/2013
Third time playing King's North. Hard test and weather was cold and rainy so it made it even tougher. Will always recommend this course to others.
MorganDate Played: 12/06/2013
Easy short cuts to each hole and an estimated time of starting (we were told 9a shotgun, but waited about a half hour or so before we actually began).

Just a fun and challenging course to play!
GaryDate Played: 11/12/2013
Fertilizer was applied to the greens but starter didn't provide that information ahead of time. Cold misty day, so ball was covered in fertilizer after each putt. Lady on beverage cart didn't appear to enjoy her job.
WesleyDate Played: 10/24/2013
This was my favorite of the four courses. It's challenging enough, but playable for intermediate level golfers. The greens and fairways all in great shape.
DaveDate Played: 10/22/2013
King's North was our premium course of the 3 we played during our annual trek to the Grand Strand, and it is a great course. Upon arrival, the staff is focused and efficient at getting you out to the course. The design is really something special, with a lot of variety to the design, and lots of tees for all skill levels. There are a lot of smiles on the course, from the island green with the S C bunkers to the gambler hole and others. The course was also very fair, playable but reasonable for our group with handicaps that ranged from 16 to 33. Conditioning was very good, and the greens were particularly impressive because they were quick, true and consistent from one hole to the next. The dedication of the staff was visible in workers moving leaves (we played in October) and smoothing tee boxes between groups. There was only one rather large negative for us: pace of play was much too slow, due to a packed tee sheet that needed more time between groups. The scorecard indicates they expect your round to take 4 hours and 36 minutes. Ours was closer to 4 hours and 50 minutes. All the players we saw were pretty good and pretty quick, there were just too many groups on the course at the same time. I asked my buddies for whom I plan our annual trip, and they both indicated we would have gladly have paid another $15 - $20 each to eliminate the wait....on.....every....shot. If we come back to Myrtle Beach at a less crowded time of year, we would love to play this one again, but not during the busy seasons of April or Sept./Oct.

DonDate Played: 09/05/2013
Marker with distance to clear water on short par 4 was misleading; ground crew explained it was direct to green instead of to obvious landing area. Can you fix marker or keep tee box staffed?

Good golf course with several memorable holes. Greens were very consistent hole to hole.
JoeDate Played: 09/02/2013
The course is in excellent shape and boy were the greens fast. this course is very challenging and definitely worth the $ to play.
DavidDate Played: 09/02/2013
Played late August. Course was in great shape. Greens were fast and true. Several interesting holes. #6, the famous par 5 gambler, is high risk if trying to score, otherwise 'go for it.'

Haven't played King's North in 25 years. Still as challenging as I remembered it. Teed off at 7:30 in the fog. Had trouble seeing for first several holes. Especially a problem on ##6.

The fairways were in great shape and plush. I thought the course was very playable for me, I had a challenging first few holes but played the last 12 at 5 over par which is very good considering my handicap. My favorite hole was the par 3 island green.

JustinDate Played: 06/06/2013
Starter was not to be found and we had to get a scorecard from the group behind us. Additionally, the group in front of us was incredibly slow and when we mentioned it to the ranger (who we only saw once), nothing was done about it. For the price paid, we expected MUCH more from this course.

JoshDate Played: 05/14/2013
King's North has a unique layout on every single hole - you can't say many courses. The Par 3's are beautiful, The Gambler is simply awesome, and the course has just the right amount of undulation which is unique for a Myrtle Beach course. One of my Top 3 favorite courses of all-time and I've played over 200 of them!
JimmyDate Played: 05/14/2013
Great course; very fair but maybe a little tough for my wife and me. Had some good scores but ruined my round on a couple of real tough holes. still a very nice course
SamDate Played: 05/09/2013
It was cart path only. This makes for very slow play. Round took over 5 hours.

DarrenDate Played: 05/02/2013
Great conditions, but second to Grande Dunes for sure. More of a golf factory, which loses the southern hospitality we like in Myrtle. Greens were not as true as on previous trips. Food from beverage cart, sandwiches were rather skimpy. Practice Range had more sand than grass/dirt on it, so I'd skip it next time. Good fair layout.

Played 3/30/13. First time playing here since new greens. Course was in great shape. Greens were fast and rolled true. Course is challenging, but playable for higher handicaps.

ChipDate Played: 04/01/2013
They have several nice unique holes, but the people that work the bag drop have attitude problems. The course gave away our replay tee times and the whole place seems like it is interested in processing as many people through as they can. The grill is ridiculously understaffed as the cashiers are also bartenders and cooks.
DennisDate Played: 03/27/2013
RAIN played only 14 holes. Like to play again on a dry day so we can enjoy it.

Great time. Number 6 gambler was fantastic. Keep up the great work guys
LeroyDate Played: 03/25/2013
All aspects of the course itself were great, as usual. The problem was we had a 9:10 tee time but when we checked in we were told that they had our name in their system but no tee time and the sheet was full. This despite the written confirmation I presented. Did,however, get off at 2:30 due to efforts by the golf desk (D'Ann) at the Caribbean Resort.

EddieDate Played: 02/11/2013
Ok. Made tee time @ 11:50am on Friday for 9:24am Sat 2/9/13. With 2' of rain early Thursday morning the course was in very good shape! On our way to 1st tee the starter informed us that the front 9 had no cart restrictions but on the back 9 it was car path only as they just sprayed rough with round up and do not want tires to carry spray onto fairways. This is something that would be nice to know BEFORE making a tee time as I can not walk to far with knee problems. Hence the car to ride in. When I let the pro shop know about the cart path only rule on the back 9 his response was, they don't let us know what they are doing out there, they show up and do what they do. Sorry. Tell My knees that. King's North is a very nice course, but not worth what they charge over West or SouthCreek courses. If you can play at a reduced rate, play it, If not, play MB WEST. Plays as nice and at 1/3 to 1/2 the price, more fun.
DickDate Played: 02/07/2013
Better directions to next tee or a better map of the layout .
BILLDate Played: 02/04/2013
Gives you the opportunity to play recovery shots. challenging but fair.
PhillipDate Played: 01/28/2013
Would have liked to know that they do not allow walking. I've walked longer courses then this one without issue. Also the fact that the airport had planes taking off right over the course was a bit distracting, every four minutes a jet was flying over your head. Other then that this was a nice track interesting layout; I like courses that make you think off the tee.
TimothyDate Played: 01/15/2013
We played on 1/14/13 and had a great round. The greens are some of the best around, firm and fast. The layout is great with a number or risk and reward holes. Tee to Green it's in great shape. The only drawback is the grill which is designed to handle large numbers of golfers due to the fact that there are 3 courses, it's cafeteria lunch, not really classy. We plan on returning soon.

Very slow play - I mean intolerable slow play. Where are the marshals on this course? We had 3 golf carts and and 5 golfers in front of us and they still kept pace with the slow golf course. Course was great, but the pace of play was poor. I cannot recommend it even though the course was great.

I would have liked to know that they use the crossover method for tee times. Was anticipating a quick round. Other than the crossover, I enjoyed my round and will play this course again the next time I am in the area.
GeraldDate Played: 10/12/2012
Because of the wet conditions we were unable to take carts to our balls which slowed play down also we had a senior with us and he was unable to play the next day because of the extra walking required. By the time we reached the back 9 conditions improved to allow 90 degree play. Beautiful course. Holes to remember, #12 par 3, with all the rain there was a small river running through the green. The Gambler and #18.
KevinDate Played: 10/11/2012
Great course other than very slow greens. I have never had so many putts stop on a down slope. Would play again though.

Great course, well maintained, some holes are very close to each other, noisy with some groups carrying on, endured some very slow play in front of us (beginners, groups who thought they were on tour and alone on course), marshall Tom was very good in helping out.

SteedDate Played: 09/12/2012
Staff were superior, greens & tees received less than excellent due to greens being new and tees had quite a large amount of divots - likely due to a tournament being hosted that morning, which we were not told about at time of booking, though resulted in our tee time of 12:20.
MichaelDate Played: 09/04/2012
The course was great except for one thing, the greenside bunkers. Having all of that sand in Myrtle Beach, I was disappointed to see that they were thin to say the least. For the price of the course, I also expected raked bunkers. I also think the starter should have mentioned to us that when playing at sea level you should use one club higher than you normally would. I like the par 5 on the front nine that is a risk reward hole and think more courses should have such creativity in their course.
CraigDate Played: 09/04/2012
Playable, varied. Lots of water. The par 5 on the back is very challenging.
OlindoDate Played: 08/27/2012
It was raining so no carts on the course but not a problem because the curse was amazing from our perspective even with the rain. The only thing I would have liked is the the yardage markers be more visible - i.e., white 150, blue 200 and so on.
ShawnDate Played: 06/26/2012
Course was top notch ... One of the best I've played if not the best. We had booked 2 originally so we would have liked to know we were paired with another group. My nephew wanted to play and it caused a little issue with accommodating him in our group but all worked out. Once on the course it was unbelievable. Great prices on the Web as well saved us a lot of money!
ToddDate Played: 06/24/2012
It took us 3 hours to play first 9 holes. You waited before every shot. Not fun. Was so bad that we asked to play another course at turn. Played first nine in 3 hours. Second nine in 1 hour 50 min. However never got to play entire King's North course. Felt slighted because paid for King's North. No one asked about coming back. Guys that give you carts and clean clubs were nowhere to be found on arrival or at end of play. On arrival we got there 1:05, it took 15 min. to find guy to give us cart. At end they were never found. Pro shop guys were good. I feel like slighted because I paid for King's North and you are obviously booking 2 tee times cause we had two 1:30 starts and course was stacked. Poor play. Would not go back until I'm confident play is faster.
DerekDate Played: 06/19/2012
It was a little chaotic in the pro shop. The personnel were not very friendly and there was very little direction from them about anything. They didn't ask if it was our first time there, didn't offer info about the course or range, and acted like they didn't want to be bothered. Had no idea the range cost money, which felt like a rip-off, considering 90% of their business is from tourism. No course books available and there were no nice amenities (towels, GPS in the carts, etc.). The starter was great though and very, very nice, and the course was in very good condition.

Had first tee time of the day - but went off as part of the 4th group. Recognize the need to fit in a single is difficult but holding up multiple singles and doubles to accommodate a late group of 17 golfers does not seem an example of good starter management.

SouthGADate Played: 03/11/2012
This track is on our normal grouping. Course was in great shape today. The fairways were excellent and greens fast. Saw other posts relating to the greens being dinged up. The greens ARE dinged up because inconsiderate players don't bother to fix their divots. Never seen anything like it. It's like people think they pay the fee and don't have to have any manners and leave the greens in the same shape when they leave them. Not the fault of the course grounds crew at all. Pace was okay. Again, the group in front of us had an open hole in front of them and couldn't care less about the pace. Good time and we'll be back again next year.
MikeDate Played: 03/03/2012
Really enjoyed the layout. Lots of water, and the bunkering was challenging on some holes. Unfortunately we played it on a cold day with wind gusts of 40 mph, so we were not able to enjoy it to the fullest. Definitely would like to come back on a nice weather day to be able to concentrate on the course without being blown over sideways! My only 2 complaints: 1)The yardage book was not very helpful, as there were no comments/tips on how to play the holes ... almost all yardage books include comments on the best way to attack each hole, and never having played the course before, I definitely lost some shots due to unfamiliarity. 2)There was not a single golf shirt in the pro shop that said King's North on it. I even asked the pro there. So I bought a MB National shirt, but with KN being the headliner there, I really would have liked a KN branded shirt. I have to imagine that many people feel the same way. I was shocked that you literally did not sell KN shirts at all.

WallaceDate Played: 02/21/2012
Played the North on 2-18-12 and could not have been more pleased. James obviously is not a golfer if he thought these greens were bad. Bentgrass greens tend to have different color schemes in the winter from purple to green but there was nothing wrong with the playability. They were smooth and fast and like all bentgrass greens they had some ball marks. My group thought they were the best of the week.
JamesDate Played: 02/19/2012
I played King's North this past Wednesday afternoon. I expected a lot from a premium course based on the price and reputation. Although I was impressed with some of its gadget holes ... I was not happy with the greens. They look as if diseased or have 10 different grasses growing. Beat up; unrepaired ball marks made the putting tough. Other less expensive courses in town seem to have their greens in a lot better shape lately. But my biggest disappointment was the 5.5-hour round. We waited every shot with not one sight of a ranger to move the pace of play at a more enjoyable speed ... I can't imagine what it would be like in season. Not exactly the overall experience we were hoping for.

It would always be nice if all the golf courses would have a way to inform first-time players what part of the green to hit to, relative to the pin positions. I know that is not easy but would be nice. The overall experience was wonderful. A course I would like to play every day.
SeungDate Played: 12/31/2011
King's North ... What a beautiful course! Very well maintained fairways and greens. Lots of water hazards made for difficult shots, but really enjoyed this course. I wish I could visit and play again.
LonDate Played: 12/27/2011
(Would like to have known prior to play) how many water holes were on the course.
DaveDate Played: 12/15/2011
Replay price too high.
TomDate Played: 12/07/2011
Great course. Have always loved playing this one.
PaulDate Played: 12/06/2011
Played King's North Saturday with a group of 11, had a wonderful time. Beautiful course, and only the greens could have been a little better. I'd like to play it on season to see if that makes a difference, and the Gambler is great fun in one hole.
RobDate Played: 11/29/2011
We played all three courses at MBN and this is the best of the three courses; in great shape.
KitchDate Played: 11/25/2011
King's North is a course that is easy on the eye but can be hard on the scorecard if you forget to manage it. It's constant risk vs. reward which leaves you excited one minute and humbled the next. The Gambler lives to chance another day.
RickDate Played: 11/24/2011
The joy of playing King's North is the gift of the round. A great mixture of challenge vs. reward shots makes it fun. The Gambler got me once again but I'll be back for another attempt.
StephenDate Played: 11/20/2011
Enjoyed the uniqueness of each hole. The course was challenging but fair. Found greens difficult to read. Hole #10 was my favorite because I birdied it :-) Gambler was fun to play (went for it). Would definitely recommend.
MitchellDate Played: 11/17/2011
I really did enjoy playing this course and look forward to playing it on my next trip to Myrtle Beach.

JacquesDate Played: 11/09/2011
Very nice golf course but yesterday, greens were awful ... lots and lots of unrepaired ball marks.
JerryDate Played: 11/09/2011
Great course. Very friendly staff and they rate right up there with Wild Wing. Very relaxed start to the round. This course is one of the most golfer friendly, playable courses in Myrtle Beach and we always return to it every time we come (and that has been 8 times for me)!! I especially love the par 3's. Challenging, but not just because of length as most courses tend to do now. Average golfers can really shoot a good score here as there are no severe holes waiting to punish you to the maximum!! Always well conditioned and beautiful.

We always enjoy Kings North, especially the Gambler.
MayerDate Played: 10/25/2011
King's North had to be one of the top 10 courses I've ever played, challenging, but with the right shot placement, the course played fair, everything about it was great.
GregoryDate Played: 10/14/2011
I would play that again.
MarkDate Played: 10/12/2011
Enjoyable course to play. Pick the right tees for your group. Memorable holes ... island green, short par 4 over water, Gambler, and the 18th.
RonDate Played: 10/10/2011
I have played here before and is one of my favourites, but every time I play here the starter always stresses too much about slow play. I play fast but sometimes get teamed with 2 slow players. I want to enjoy my day on one of my favorite courses, too.
JasonDate Played: 10/08/2011
Great all around.
JuddDate Played: 10/03/2011
Absolutely beautiful! Wonderful layout and unique design. Very challenging and FUN! Will come back again.

Cart path only made pace of play seem rushed. I did enjoy the experience. Greens were in great shape.

Gambler hole is just fun. Clubhouse is superb.
TomDate Played: 09/23/2011
JimmyDate Played: 09/22/2011
The course was in great shape. We were the first group off and the pace was really nice. The course set up is fair and brings in distance decisions. The landing area about 130 yards out from the hole was really wide keeping some errand tee shots in the fairway.
BillyDate Played: 09/20/2011
We liked the course layout. I would play again. The pace of play was good.
DavidDate Played: 09/16/2011
Very scenic, demanding layout but carts on cart paths only took a little away form the experience.
BillyDate Played: 09/15/2011
Loved the layout of the course. Greens and fairways were excellent. A must-play course.
DavidDate Played: 09/14/2011
Beautiful course, challenging reachable par fives to start both nines. The Gambler is a cool risk/reward hole, you can go for the generous island and have a good angle to the green in two, or go for the outer fairway and make it a three-shot hole with a very challenging angle for the third shot. I recommend every golfer experience this golf course.
TylerDate Played: 09/13/2011
Great course in great condition late in the year. Starters are a little rude and paired us up with another twosome even though there were no other tee times around us. That turned a 3-hour round into a 5-hour round. Very fun course to play and well worth the money.
MarkDate Played: 09/13/2011
I don't think I will be returning to Myrtle Beach National. This is the fourth time I've played these courses and every time had the same experience - played the front nine in under 2 hours and played the back nine in 3+ hours. Myrtle Beach National insists on double teeing and placing too many golfers on the course (8 minute tee times I believe) so that once it's full at the turn, there is not enough room for all the golfers. Despite their banners stating Stop Slow Play, it is their own course management that results in the problem.
MichaelDate Played: 09/09/2011
Staff and starter were excellent!! Course condition was very good. The scenic views on the course were unforgettable!! I would definitely recommend this course to my friends!!
AlexDate Played: 09/07/2011

BruceDate Played: 08/30/2011
Played on Monday 8-29-2011; great shape, would play again.
RichardDate Played: 08/28/2011
Nice layout. A couple of gimmicky holes. Birdie on Hole 6 going the short way to the island. Tees and fairways were in good shape. Greens were spotty and had a lot of unrepaired ball marks or improperly repaired marks, but to be expected on a public course in August. People were very friendly except for a very gruff starter. Overall a nice course, and I would play again.
LawrenceDate Played: 08/28/2011
(Would like to have known prior to play) that you are supposed to drive through the sand to get from hole to hole ... very unusual ... should be marked.
RonDate Played: 08/25/2011
This is one of the top courses on the Grand Strand. Only issue was the greens were a little battle worn from golfers not repairing their marks. Overall the whole experience was amazing. This course is very unforgiving if you are not careful because of the many sand traps, waste areas, and water. Still a must-play and I would love to play it again since my score wasn't to my liking!
ChristopherDate Played: 08/23/2011
Great course - very good condition - OK layout, nothing spectacular - Gambler hole a bit of a let down - overall, good experience.
WilliamDate Played: 08/22/2011

WayneDate Played: 07/15/2011
This is only my 2nd time playing golf in MB. I played 3 courses last year that were pretty nice, but when I stepped up to the 1st tee here, I knew I was in a different world. I was up to the challenge. I shot an 83 and felt good. I think I had 1 triple and one double so it was a good day considering my handicap. We plan to return to MB next year and depending on the costs I'll consider KN again.

Over-priced for the condition of the course.

Greens, fairways, entire course was in great condition. Enjoyed playing every hole.
NeilDate Played: 07/02/2011
I enjoyed playing King's North, it was very nice but maybe I expected too much. The course was in good condition - no rain within the last two week so to be fair the course was in good condition.
MarcDate Played: 07/01/2011
The starter (Al) took time to really talk with you, and made us feel right at home. Gave us some good tips on what else to do while in Myrtle Beach. He is a definite asset to the course.
KevinDate Played: 06/28/2011
Staff was excellent, from the time we arrived until the time we left. Course was in good condition. Our only complaint was the slow pace of play, but that's not any of the staff's fault.
RichardDate Played: 06/13/2011
Have played this course 4 times and by far this was the best shape I have ever seen it.
GregDate Played: 06/10/2011
With a lot of unique holes throughout King's North, it was by far the most unique course we played in Myrtle Beach. The layout was fantastic and the course played perfectly for us.

BillDate Played: 04/14/2011
The weather was very bad so it was hard to judge the course. I wasn't even sure the course was going to be open because the pro shop people acted like they had the day off. I thought some of the holes were cramped with greens and tee boxes and adjacent fairways on top of each other.
CharlesDate Played: 04/14/2011
Course did not have sufficient carts for afternoon players.

Sorry can't answer (completely); got hurt & rode in cart.

I think the King's North course is tops, it gives you the feel of a pro and condition is always the best. I love the island green.
DwayneDate Played: 04/07/2011
Beautiful course and fair prices. A pleasure to play. I can't wait to play here again. We also played the South course twice. A great play as well. My new favorite place in Myrtle.

Real nice course. Starter was friendly, courteous and very helpful. You could tell he enjoyed his job.
JohnDate Played: 04/01/2011
King's North is always a blast! My brother played for the 1st time here, and he found out why they call it the Gambler (he shot a 13), I hope he doesn't read this ... The course is outstanding, the only aspect that could be improved: too many people playing this awesome course ...

EdDate Played: 03/29/2011
Greens would not hold.
RandyDate Played: 03/29/2011
Tons of waste bunkers but very manageable, the course plays longer than the yardage shows. At number 6 the Gambler, wind is very much a factor. In late March I thought greens were OK but fairways, rough, and tees were exceptional. Definitely would play again; one of the better courses in Myrtle Beach.

Poor course overall; have been coming to MB 10 years and always thought King's North was good. Will never come back; never finished 18 holes due to slow play (6-plus hrs.)

For the average golfer it's way too difficult. I don't mind bunkers but the waste areas are way overdone.
RichDate Played: 10/04/2010
I play this course when I can get the money up. It is a solid course that, with a little more length, could host a tour event. The tiny par 3 and the Gambler are fun and could, if not played right, ruin a good round! ... The course is always in good shape and staff is A+. It is head and shoulders over the other 2 courses on site.

DonDate Played: 09/28/2010
There is not one favorite hole on this course, they are all my favorite! Hole #6 is a challenge, but there are many nice holes on this course. Greens were OK, but not great. No complaints here.
ScottDate Played: 09/18/2010
Course was in pretty good condition given the heat of the summer. Greens were in excellent shape. Pleasant experience all the way around. Very courteous and helpful staff. We always enjoy playing at Myrtle Beach National's courses. It was great to play the signature course King's North this time around. Challenging, yet really fun to play.
ScottDate Played: 09/13/2010
HORRIBLE GREENS! I would not have been so harsh if I was told about them or even given a discount, but paying full price is ridiculous with the shape they were in.

I liked the way the holes worked different parts of your game; one straight, next fade, next draw. I think I used all my clubs and used my head! The trouble is fair. Did not like the sand cart paths.
BrianDate Played: 08/14/2010
Course was overall in great condition. Greens were a little sparse but it was the middle of August with bentgrass greens. No towels on carts, no cooler on cart. Both were disappointing given the cost to play. Beverage cart was a nice amenity. Pace of play was nice and course was worth the money.
NickDate Played: 08/10/2010
We played the South Course this morning and found it to be much better than the North Course, which isn't saying much. We had high hopes for the North with all of the hype and it really let us down. Don't waste your money, greens are awful, slow with bare spots. Starters were great.

Great course. Mostly good shape but greens seemed stressed with heat and traffic. My only complaint with this course was I showed up 45 minutes early only to be rushed onto the first tee 35 minutes before my tee time. I understand I was a single but I was not ready to play and was paired up with a twosome that insisted on playing the back tees. The course was great in the layout and design. I really enjoyed some of the characteristic holes.
LouisDate Played: 08/01/2010
I play 20 plus rounds a year in Myrtle Beach. This course was a mess for a premium course. MBN will be off our play list when I bring my groups down to Myrtle. I was especially upset by the reaction from Steve when I complained. What good is this survey if you don't use the feedback to rectify the complaint?
JoeDate Played: 07/29/2010
1) Was hitting balls on the range at 8:45 and a guy picked up all the balls. I asked to hit a few more and he said the range closed at 9:00. I told him I only wanted to hit a few more balls and he was reluctant to let me do so. Not to friendly. (Older man with cigar) 2) Front nine took almost 3 hours w/o a ranger in site. Asked how long normally took for 18 while getting food and person stated 4-4.5 hours. After calling pro shop on hole 11 after noticing 2 groups ahead of us had 3 holes open they finally sped the round up. It shouldn't have taken my call for this to happen. Greens were not in good shape and recently punched. I was not made aware of this before round.

It as a very challenging course, it made you think about course management a lot. The wind was a very big factor and the firmness of the greens made it difficult to stick a shot on the greens. The staff was very friendly and very hospitable. My favorite hole hands-down was The Gambler. What a risk/reward hole! I parred the hole, wasn't easy! Thank you for an enjoyable day of golfing.

What can you say about playing King's North that hasn't already been said? It is without question one of the finest golfing experiences anywhere. We played it on the morning of July 16 and found it, as always, to be in tremendous shape. It is challenging, yet forgiving when you need it to be and its physical beauty help make golf there the sort of Zen experience it ought to be. What a great course with a super staff. This is a Myrtle Beach must-play.

For $125 a round I excepted better service.

Beautiful course. Everything seemed to be in good condition.

<p>Excellent course, for several reasons: <p>1. The continuous attention by course management to enforce and maintain the pace of play. <p>2. Tee boxes and fairways were well maintained with fair and consistent greens. <p>3. Lay out: I truly enjoy a course that requires a little creativity on shot making and rewards accordingly. <p>4. The restaurant served good food with quick service and turn around. <p>5. I shot my best round during our golf outing at King's North!

Bernie in the shop was excellent. Course was very good. Had to rent clubs as plane did not deliver and was not happy with the set.

Looking forward to returning to play Kings North :)

King's North is an excellent course. The only drawback was that the greens had been aerated. But the staff was friendly, and the two men I was paired up with were friendly.

A postcard worthy view everywhere you turn! Very playable course - greens conditioning could be improved (many unfixed ball marks).
