Myrtle Beach National – SouthCreek
The SouthCreek Course at Myrtle Beach National is the shortest of the three golf courses at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club, with waste bunkers, dogleg fairways and intricately contoured MiniVerde greens punctuating the challenge.
This course requires accuracy off the tee, but also leaves plenty of scoring opportunities throughout your round. The start to the back nine showcases the dramatic par-5 10th hole that wraps as a dogleg right around a large lake. The par-3 13th features a small green with a large waste bunker leading up to it, while the par-4 finishing hole at 18 stretches 380 yards from the tips and plays as a dogleg left with a steep-faced bunker fronting the green that requires a forced carry.
This Arnold Palmer design presents a strong test to your game, and offers a compelling option to include in your next Myrtle Beach golf getaway.

Excellent condition. Pace of play was great, completed round in 4 hours. Greens fast and true. Will definitely play again.
RichardDate Played: 03/14/2020
Fun and narrow course, made even narrower because of the houses. Great condition
RobbyDate Played: 03/10/2020
Lovely course!! Friendly if you have a slight miss hit into the pine needles, but punishing if you’re in those woods, or someone’s backyard! Fun course.
MichaelDate Played: 01/28/2020
Nice course - not long but enough variety to keep it interesting. Easy enough for my wife to enjoy as well.

Great “shorter” golf course. Tighter off the tee, takes driver out of the bag for the most part. A lot of doglegs.
BlakeDate Played: 08/21/2019
great course, but 45 min rain storm made conditions wet, hot and steamy. Back nine greens had just been sanded....would have been nice to know prior to playing. Would not have booked. Will play North next time.

CelestiaDate Played: 05/03/2019
Nice course, greens were in great shape, more bare spots in fairways than I would have expected. Was surprised how quickly the team was able to get everyone on the course considering how many players were waiting when we got there.

TedDate Played: 08/28/2018
Course is in really good shape. The greens are rolling very fast & true. Excellent staff from bag drop to starters. Pace of play excellent.
PanchoDate Played: 05/07/2018
Played the south Creek at 830am and west course at 230 pm last Saturday May 5. Courses were in excellent condition, great and super friendly staff and we really enjoyed our games. Will be back for sure !!
RolandDate Played: 06/09/2017
Got to the course to checkin and they told me "I don't think this is on our website, but we aerated the greens". So, I'm at the course, already made a reservation, have a group of golfers coming, what do they expect me to do? I reluctantly went ahead and paid and played the course. They aerated the greens AND fairways and the conditions as you would expect, not good. Did they offer any discount becuase of the condition (aeration) - NO! Should they have - YES! I certainly would not have made a tee time OR played the course had I known of the condition of the course.
GregDate Played: 03/05/2017
nice course tight fairways excellent condition
ZachDate Played: 10/02/2016
This was one of my favorite courses down in Myrtle Beach. It's not the longest course out there but you have to think on every shot. Also I got a hole in 1 on number 17 helps. In all though it's one of the most beautiful courses out there.
GaryDate Played: 09/30/2016
I just finished the slowest round I've ever played in Myrtle Beach and I play here a lot. When we made the turn to the front (which was our back nine), there was 7 foursomes waiting. I'm and not exaggerating, 7 groups. Double teeing is fine, but this was ridiculous. Course was actually decent, but not enjoyable at all.
TedDate Played: 08/24/2016
Course is in excellent shape tee to green. Greens are running fast. Pace of play was 4 hrs. for our foursome. Lots of different holes.
TedDate Played: 04/04/2016
Course is in excellent shape. Tee Boxes, Fairways & Greens are super. Nice Par 3's & Par 5's
BobDate Played: 03/27/2016
A great course that everyone can play. The layout is fun but challenging and can be enjoyed by people of all handicap ranges. Conditions were great as typical of all Myrtle Beach National courses. A course to put on your list for sure!
WilliamDate Played: 03/17/2016
Top notch best course ever played. For this time of year, excellent course enjoyed playing with my buddy's. Could not have had a better day of golf. Thinks to staff for their friendliness.
MikeDate Played: 01/23/2016
Course was in excellent condition and allowed carts in fairways, a big plus for my group. Greens are nice, roll very true, don't over read the break on this course. Our wives also enjoy playing here. Great pace of play. Friendly staff throughout.
MikeDate Played: 02/11/2015
Love this golf course. Course was in great shape. Good pace of play.

Starter was real helpful, didn't know the roughs would be brown.
KyleDate Played: 12/14/2014
Golf course best part of this club - Service needs help, pro shop staff had other priorities on day I was there (not helpful), Grill service was non existent, could not get a beer after round employees were on break. 16 guys stop to spend money and no one available to serve food/drink??

BobDate Played: 11/05/2014
This is an older course with a good layout. The pace of play could be better, but it is the height of the fall golf season. The practice range is very average. The grass cover in the fairways is very good, but drainage issues which force cart off of the fairways well out from many greens need to be addressed. The greens had reasonably good pace to them. All in all, a very enjoyable golfing experience.
RandyDate Played: 10/30/2014
Excellent golf course that really made it a challenge. Had same problems with approach shots as Possum Trot. Hard greens surrounded by extremely soft approach area. Would definitely play this one again.
MichaelDate Played: 10/25/2014
Greens did not roll smooth and seemed too long and fuzzy.
RickDate Played: 10/21/2014
Very regal. You felt like you were stepping into golf history.
DonaldDate Played: 10/16/2014
Very happy you guys have it working perfect. Didn't wait at any hole and we kept pace with the groups just fine, awesome job, we also played the West Course. Couldn't have had a better time. We will be back.
CharlesDate Played: 09/29/2014
The three courses at MBN are fantastic. Try to play each one when we come to Myrtle Beach.

RobertDate Played: 10/10/2013
The course was in great shape. We started at the 10th at 8am. Tough par 5 into the early morning sun. Course started out a little wet but quickly dried up. Greens very fast and tough. Full round in about 4 hours. Would play again!!
SteveDate Played: 09/23/2013
Great course conditions. will play again
FrankDate Played: 08/15/2013
Although the course had been recently aerified, the greens were very playable and did not distract from an enjoyable round of golf. We enjoyed the variety of challenges that the course presented with sole long holes, some short holes and some holes that presented options in strategy for the golfer. The pro shop staff, cart man, and the starter were kind and courteous before and after our round of golf. We had an wonderful experience and will definitely return to play again. We especially want to try hole # 10 again (par 5).
DarrenDate Played: 04/29/2013
Good conditions. Decent layout, fair landing areas. Greens were good, but not overly fast. They had you teeing off on the back of the driving range on an upslope, hitting off of more sand than grass. Conditions on the course were very good. Staff not the friendliest at bag drop, this place is more a factory than the normal course here. Would play again though as good value for the $$$.
MarionDate Played: 02/25/2013
Overall very nice.
TimothyDate Played: 02/06/2013
We played on 2/5/13 and the course was in pretty good shape. We had an afternoon tee time so the greens were a little beat up and bumpy from all the morning play, but they were playable. The staff was great and friendly and the rangers were doing a good job keeping the pace. We got around in just about 4 hours.
JordanDate Played: 01/01/2013
Played here today and really, really enjoyed the course. I've played a bunch of courses in the area and this was my favorite so far. Course was in fantastic condition for the end of December. The pace of play was pretty bad, the round took about 5 hours. The starter did say that play was backed up because of frost delay. I feel confident guessing that all 3 of the Myrtle Beach National courses are usually backed up, so I wasn't surprised that it was a slow round. The layout was great and the course was gorgeous. The rough was all dormant and dead and the fairways were bright green, maybe that is why I found the course so visually appealing? I'll have to give it or one of the other MBN courses a try this summer to see if that is why.
JohnDate Played: 12/05/2012
JimDate Played: 12/05/2012
Tee boxes chewed up and fairways cut so short the ball did not set up and felt like we were playing on the ground. Crappy fairways led to an unpleasant experience for us. This is the 5th year here and the worst conditions.
HaroldDate Played: 11/19/2012
Crowded, slow play ... trying to get as many golfers as possible out on the course.

Don't have to be a bomber to play and enjoy this course. Excellent condition, as always.
PatrickDate Played: 10/11/2012
Loved the layout. Course is in great shape. Very lady-friendly course and easy to get around. Chose this as our first course of the week, since there are very few blind or carry shots. Water comes into play on a couple of holes. My sky caddie and yardage on the sprinkler heads were together. Sand was a bit difficult. Greens putted true, although a little firm - expect some role when attacking flag.
BriDate Played: 07/30/2012
Found the course a little tight for my game, had I known there were houses all around I would have booked somewhere else. But it's a nice layout and challenging, they had sanded the greens so that was disappointing for us.
MarkDate Played: 07/01/2012
Greens and fairways have been plugged recently. Had to improve my lie a lot. Overall I would give it a solid 8. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Very positive experience.
EddieDate Played: 06/18/2012
It has been a few years between rounds on SouthCreek course. Just like I remember. Great greens and fairways. As a higher handicap player it was a little too tight and way too many houses come into play with out of bounds. It is a great course, just bring extra balls as going onto the homeowners land is a no-no. FYI - On the 18th hole the sprinklers came on and soaked our bags and our cart. Pro shop said sorry, have a good day. No offer to dry our stuff, nothing. Rest of the outside guys were great.
DanDate Played: 05/26/2012
4-hour round was nice and friendly staff but course layout and greens are very average.
DaveDate Played: 05/03/2012
Greens were not in good shape.
AnthonyDate Played: 04/29/2012
The course was in good shape overall. The greens and fairways were nice but the rough in some areas was in poor shape. Personally I didn't care much for it, there was too much out of bounds for me and fairways are kinda narrow. Scenery was OK, but nothing compared to some of the other courses in that area. If your going to play an MBN course, play King's North; its amazing.
J.Date Played: 04/12/2012
Staff was friendly and professional. Greens on the front nine were in bad shape (burnt). Rest of course was in decent shape.
EdDate Played: 03/02/2012
MB Nat'l SouthCreek gets a higher rating than Tradition, and an equal rating to MB Nat'l North? Wonder what these golfers were smoking? SouthCreek has very narrow fairways, and is framed with countless residences from tee to green. May be a great course, but only for the true shot makers!

TimothyDate Played: 02/02/2012
We played on 1/31/12. Starter was nice enough to get us started a little early. The greens were my only complaint here. Some were hard and fast and other soft and sluggish. You have to be very cautious when putting due to the inconsistencies, but the course overall was in good condition. This course is TOO lady friendly with the par 5's just long par 4's. My wife would not allow me to score them as par 5's, so she played it as a par 69 course.
JohnDate Played: 01/23/2012
Course in great shape for January.
MaryDate Played: 11/30/2011

Course was in good shape, greens are very fast, overall I would give it a solid 8.
JoeDate Played: 06/07/2011
Course was in good shape, the greens were very true and would bite nicely. The course requires a little bit of accuracy due to some tight fairways with OB and hazards. I had a great time.
RobertDate Played: 05/30/2011

The course exceeded my expectations.
BradDate Played: 05/11/2011
The greens were very inconsistent, service at grill was good but they threw us out each night as they wanted to leave. The starter was a crab. The on-course service was very poor. We had to call to get beverages and after we did we were told they would see us in a couple holes they didn't see us for another 9 holes. Nothing unique in my opinion, clubhouse staff was very non-plus about everything. I felt like I was in Vegas where they truly don't care.
WilliamDate Played: 05/10/2011
Greens were very fast and sanded.

Have played here before (RMGC). This was the first day of our trip, we got off the plane at 10:20 a.m., went straight to the course, had a great burger and they had us on the course within an hour. Course was in great shape and we started our 5-day visit in style.

SusanDate Played: 10/21/2010
Coming from Northern Ontario, where golf is a 4-month activity, to a year-round activity I couldn't believe how excellent your course set up and condition were. Your fair condition is probably better than our good condition. Everything about your course from staff, condition, layout etc. far exceeded my expectations and I would very much like to return to golf again.
NormDate Played: 10/20/2010
Enjoyed the narrow fairways.
JohnDate Played: 10/07/2010
Played both West (TWICE) and South Creek. Liked both. West was a little longer and more open. South Creek greens were much faster. Great time. Pace of play was great, early morning tee times were a bargain and let us have plenty of time for beach. Will be back.
RichDate Played: 09/27/2010
Weakest/tightest of the 3 @ Myrtle Beach National, but has some interesting holes. Great hot dogs @ the grill. Good warm-up course, with very good staff.
DanDate Played: 08/19/2010
I really enjoyed this course. The fairways were narrower than the West Course and the greens were near immaculate. I haven't played many of the courses in Myrtle Beach, but based on my previous experience, these greens were in great condition and were almost like putting on astro turf. The ball ran true to the line and can get away from you if you're not used to the speed. Overall, had a great round and would definitely consider returning in the future.
TimothyDate Played: 06/16/2010

BlaireDate Played: 05/13/2010
Course was in great condition other than freshly fertilized greens, which is not that big of a deal. The staff was wonderful and it was a great first day of golf in Myrtle Beach and I will try to play it again when we return.
NickDate Played: 05/10/2010
I thought the course was in great shape. My girlfriend and I played May 6th and everything was very green and the fairways and greens were in very good shape. The bad part about it was how crowded the course was. Our foursome played right at the 4-hour mark and we still felt completely rushed. They sent too many groups directly after us which made it harder to enjoy the course.
PatriciaDate Played: 05/04/2010

Great round. Hope to play it again.
PaulDate Played: 03/17/2010
Was a little surprised at how brown the rough was, but I surmised it was due to it still being in a dormant stage. That's nature.
TimothyDate Played: 02/28/2010

GeorgeDate Played: 09/23/2009
Played here on 9/18 - lots of houses on the course, but you have to really be crooked to find them. Narrow fairways that do not offer much roll make this course play longer than the card says. On the day we played the greens were smooth and a medium speed, but they seemed to be a little grainy making them hard to read. All in all, a nice course for straight hitters while sprayers will have a long day. I will probably play here again.
LeslieDate Played: 09/22/2009

Best of the five courses with Bermuda greens we played this week.
TomDate Played: 06/19/2009
Nice course, great smooth greens and it does play to a slope of 129 from the white tees; it is not a slouch, plenty of good bunkering. Greens are so smooth and true I had just 27 putts including one 3-putt. I highly recommend, they have multicourse/play specials that if you book ahead, you save $$$.

We will definitely play this course again when we return in April. Overall experience was very enjoyable.

This was a really fun course. If you're long off the tee you're in for a pretty low score. That is if you can keep it in the fairway.
