Myrtle Beach National – West Course
As one of two sister courses to the heralded King’s North, West Course at Myrtle Beach National also plays through expansive pine forest with a notable absence of homes and development. It’s just you and nature, on a course that offers plenty of room off the tee and plays into greens that, while open in front, feature several that are sloped heavily from back to front.
For all the room that West Course offers off the tee, it won’t exhaust you with its length. All par fours here play less than 400 yards from the middle sets of tees, while the par five holes play less than 500 yards from the same sets of tees – and offer multiple opportunities to reach in two to boost your scoring chances.
The finishing hole at West Course is a par three – a bit unconventional for the market, but also making for a dramatic finish as you steer clear of the water that runs the entire left-side length of the hole.

KevinDate Played: 11/22/2019
Started on number one today played with no one infront started early in the cold conditions,so we could not have alot of people in front of us since we were going to play 36 holes today. got to number 10 and 4 groups on the hole.it was totally crazy and the second 9 took 4 hours to play. so if u go there dont get up early and dont freeze trying to get a good early tee time. sleep in and its like u are first on the tee box when u arrive. we will write the MBN courses off our playing courses at the beach. all they care about is the cash and getting the most players as they can.course was great but unless u have 8 hours to play, find another place to play at the beach.

Course is in fantastic shape. Plenty of room off the tees but the pin placements were TUFF!!!!! Only complaint was the starter was not very friendly. In fact once he found out we were locals I felt like I was treated like a second hand citizen.

ChrisDate Played: 03/20/2019
Great course, great staff
EddieDate Played: 12/01/2018
Played this course several times. 90* rule was in effect as fairways and rough still has some VERY wet spots. That said the course was very playable. Our group covered a lot of the course looking for our missed hit balls and found everyone among the trees and in the rough. Course was in overall good shape. Greens were firm and speed was manageable. 2 putted every green. (No 3 putts) Not a flat green on the course, that's why I like it.
TedDate Played: 10/05/2018
Course is in excellent condition. Pretty wide open fairways but very tough greens. Don't be above the hole. 1st group off this morning & still finished in just over 4 hours with double teeing.
TedDate Played: 09/04/2018
Course is in excellent condition. Pace of play was under 4 hours for our foursome. Greens looked fast but putted a little slow which took a few holes to get used too.

TedDate Played: 01/21/2017
Course is in very good shape tee to green. Some of the best kept bunkers in MB. Pace of play was outstanding. Staff always very nice. Not overly difficult course but enough challenges to make it interesting. Good warm up course to start you golf vacation or just a nice place to play if you live here. Holes 15 thru 18 are nice finishing holes. Recommend playing here.
TedDate Played: 07/14/2016
Tee Boxes & Fairways are in excellent shape. Greens have recently aerified but still putted very true & fast. Staff were very friendly & seemed concerned because of the heat. Kept reminding us to drink plenty of fluids. Pace of play was good 4hrs 10mins with foursome & extreme heat
DavidDate Played: 06/29/2016
Opening course of our trip, so quite a gentle start. Not too taxing, nothing stunning but a nice solid course where everything is laid out in front of you. Not bad condition either.
MarkDate Played: 06/24/2016
Enjoyed playing this course, it is open and fairly easy with no water. Good starting course to get warmed up. Should have played the back tees or hit 3-wood of the tee as there were many dogleg holes where a 240yd drive means your through the fairway. Greens were decent and rolled well but had bare spots. We were early for our tee time but were hurried to play with the other twosome who was even earlier than us. I would play this again as a warm-up course, but the King's North course is a much more challenging layout but not in any better condition than the West course.
DannyDate Played: 04/07/2016
Best course we played all week. Greens and fairways in great shape. Played with two guys from Myrtle Beach area who were a great help. Staff in pro shop as well as greeters were excellent. Would recommend this course to anybody. Great course for men and women very fair. Can't comment on grill since we didn't eat here but the club house is beautiful and very well kept.
TedDate Played: 03/25/2016
Bag drop very busy with 3 courses but enough help to move you along. Counter people not overly friendly. Pace of play on front nine was very good, Back nine slowed down quite a bit. Wide fairways, lots of bunkers around greens. Course was in excellent condition.
DavidDate Played: 03/05/2016
Greens are very nice right now. The course was very wet due to all night rain but it was still in pretty nice shape. It's a very fair and fun course to play.
RolandDate Played: 01/23/2016
Nice course in good shape. It was cart path only, although it appeared to be dry enough to ride on the course.
JohnDate Played: 06/11/2015
Played in the afternoon after an all-morning rain. Even with the wet, the course was in excellent conditions and fun to play. Different set-up than that the North course, the West course served up enough challenges, especially having traveled over 7 hours that day to play.

EddieDate Played: 10/13/2014
We have a group of 20 guys that comes down every year. Everyone was very happy with the course. The tees were excellent, fairways were excellent and the greens were in great shape and fast. I would highly recommend this course for anyone planning a golf trip. I've played both the other MBN courses and this one is just as nice as the others. King's North has a few fancier holes, but we really enjoyed the West course. Beautiful holes, well manicured. The only problem I had was my cart stopped working on the second hole. I had to make 2 calls to the clubhouse and finally 18 minutes later they brought me a new cart. Being on the second hole near the green, the clubhouse was only 300 yards away. Three other groups went through while my group waited. I finally decided to walk to the clubhouse to get a new cart myself. I got halfway there and noticed someone was finally on the way. It happens, but they were very slow in responding. It's the only bad mark I gave them.

JimDate Played: 04/09/2014
Starters were good....Attendants very disorganized as usual . They have no idea about your tee times / when to load you up or when to send you out to the starter. No one is in charge out there. We had to grab our own carts and load our own bags on to our carts, while attendants socialize with others...We have been playing myrtle national for over 15 yrs and your attendants out front are always this way. we have come to expect it at Myrtle National. Other courses we play at run so much more efficiently/ in control when it comes to the out front attendants. ,,,But we keep coming back because we like your courses and club house
JohnDate Played: 03/07/2014
My favorite course in Myrtle Beach. Love hole ##18.
TimothyDate Played: 02/25/2014
We played on 2/23/14 and had a good day with the weather and the course. It's an easy course relative to the other Myrtle Beach courses. It is a nice starter course for people just starting their golf for the year. The course is wide open with plenty of room for error and recovery. The greens were in good shape and a little tricky with some good slope. I would recommend it to high handicappers and beginners.
DavidDate Played: 02/13/2014
Beautiful course! Very well laid out and manicured.
EarnieDate Played: 02/06/2014
We've played MBN West a number of times and always enjoyed it until this trip. Although the staff was technically correct, we felt they could have been a little more player friendly. Won't be back for awhile.
DonDate Played: 01/03/2014
My 2 sons and I played MB National on Dec.30.(I have played the course before). MB National-West is an excellent course. From the regular tees the average golfer has a chance to score well if the short game is working. I like the fact that from the men's tees, the course is not too long and most of the fairways are forgiving. The course was in good shape and the staff was excellent. I shot an 82 which is good for me. Best course on the strand for the money.

RichardDate Played: 11/05/2013
Great layout, greens were excellent. A fun 18 hole course. Starter was a little pushy. Just pulled our cart up and he rushed us off the first tee in a hurry and we ended up waiting on groups in front of us most of the front 9. We couldn't even warm up.

Super fast greens but rolled true. Very nice layout. Teed off in the first group at 7:30, they doubled up the tees front and back. Made the turn at 9:10 and had to wait until 9:39 to tee off the back nine but pace was still about 2 hours for back nine. Very enjoyable round of golf.

First time I have ever seen sprinkler heads in the middle of tee boxes! Did like having map at each hole with outline of hole showing water etc. very disappointed that grill closed when we made turn as we needed food and water and it was only 6 pm. No one there when we finished and there were groups behind us
ToddDate Played: 08/15/2013
Played here over the weekend and I must say I was very impressed with the condition and layout of the course. With inviting fairways and rather large greens, this course is a golfers dream. Everyone in the Pro Shop was very friendly, especially the ladies behind the snack bar. Saw the beverage cart plenty of times throughout the day to keep us hydrated when it was scorching hot. I got a glimpse at the two other courses at the facility, King's North and South Creek, which was tempting to go play another 18 on either of those. Very pleased with my experience and Myrtle Beach National will always be on the list.
JoeDate Played: 08/12/2013
The course was nice but I wouldn't say anything stuck out as been great. Course was in decent shape and had some interesting holes. I was disappointed in the group of employees (starters) that were playing behind our group. They were rude and disrespectful to members of our foursome. We were playing at a good pace and still had to deal with them. Employees especially should cater to paying customers.

The starter was a bit rude (as were some of the players waiting at the first tee... complaining about the tourists and how they shouldn't be allowed on the course!). Luckily we were playing with a very nice couple and the day turned out to be a lot of fun. Would definitely play here again as we loved the course and it was a good one to start with after not golfing for months!
MichaelDate Played: 03/18/2013
Course was in great condition even with the dormant rough. Facillities were clean and grounds well manicured. Bag and proshop staff were great. Starter was ok...didn't really infom us about the course, no tee reccomendations for the mixed level group, was more concerned about time, than our enjoyment...only downside. Would certainly comeback to play the other courses.
JosephDate Played: 03/11/2013
Very playable for all handicaps. Fairways are great but the lies are a little tight. Greens are challenging with many slopes and breaks. Could use a little more sand in bunkers.

MarkDate Played: 02/11/2013
Love the overseeded tees and fairways in the the winter time. Love that there are no homes on the course--not a residential golf course. All the greens, w/ very few exceptions were tilted from back to front--if you are above the hole, expect to three putt--very disconcerting. A lot of back and forth from one hole to the next on the front nine, back nine much better about that. Enjoyed the experience though--not sure I would go back w/ so many choices in Myrtle Beach, except to play the King's North course--that looks like a major step up from the West and South courses.

WayneDate Played: 08/21/2012
My 10 year old son and I had a great time playing on the course. The round was a little slow but nothing too bad. We were paired up with another twosome which I expected. The course was in good shape and the staff at the bag drop off was very nice.
BobDate Played: 08/20/2012
Nice layout, pretty course. Felt rushed in the beginning, people behind us were rude.
WarrenDate Played: 08/19/2012
SteveDate Played: 08/18/2012
The course was challenging but not difficult, perfect for my level of playing.
OscarDate Played: 08/15/2012
The course is in great shape. Greens were relatively fast. The West Course is generally open. Lots of water, but little of it is in play. Bunkers were generally firm, as a result of the rain that has hit the area. But they played well. The rough penalizes mishits, due to the Bermuda grass that is tough to get out of, as it should be. Attention to detail by the staff was amazing. I booked online a couple of months ago, and when I showed up, everything was waiting. A completely enjoyable experience.
MattDate Played: 08/12/2012
Wonderful course! First time we played there and conditions were above par. Only problem was over watering, so small amount of rain left standing water on fairways, thus cart path only. Some holes force you to shape shots are you could end up in trouble or have a long second shot. Overall a great course and for the price $35 it cannot be beat.
JoshuaDate Played: 08/08/2012
The West Course allows you to hit your longer clubs off the tee yet still demands them to be placed in the correct area of the fairway for a good approach into the greens. The greens are second to none in my 14+ years coming to Myrtle Beach. I loved playing this course and will play it again upon my return to MB!
JimDate Played: 08/04/2012
Just all around great at MB National.
RandyDate Played: 07/31/2012
Course was really nice for what we got to play. We got rained out after the 5th hole. We have rain checks and will make a trip back to play the course again.
MichaelDate Played: 07/28/2012
Rough was difficult but made you have to hit a good drive, not real straight putts.
RichardDate Played: 07/27/2012
Great course, superior condition and service. Quick check in.
KevinDate Played: 07/26/2012
The conditions were good. I found the course to be fair and there is plenty of room to hit fairways.
RandyDate Played: 07/24/2012
Course in great shape. Yardage marked well.
TimothyDate Played: 07/16/2012
Great Course. Well maintained!
MichaelDate Played: 07/16/2012
The only thing I didn't like was I could tell the greens had recently been punched and they were very slow, but I understand that is something that has to be done.
PatrickDate Played: 07/14/2012
Course was in great shape. The starter was excellent. The only drawback was a slow foursome in front of us.
LarryDate Played: 07/11/2012
A great experience. Staff very helpful and attentive. Will definitely book again on any return visit. Thanks for great memories.
AbrusleyDate Played: 07/08/2012
The course was in EXCELLENT condition despite the time of year. Very, very hilly fairways and the greens were extremely difficult to read. Challenging but we had a great round! It was a beautiful championship type of course and we enjoyed it so much! The staff was excellent and the clubhouse was beautiful! We really enjoyed the experience!
MenardDate Played: 07/07/2012
As I played single, the starter made it easy for me to join a group of three golfers and I had a very nice round. The marshall came to see us at a time to explain the delay in the play on that day.
BrianDate Played: 07/07/2012
Our threesome got stuck with a female single golfer - she was OK, but it's not fair to do that to three guys in a group. Other than that, it was great.
JasonDate Played: 07/05/2012
This being my first time on any of the National courses I was pleased. The fairways were forgiving and the greens were fairly soft for this time of year. The course was in good shape considering the extremely high temps over the past couple of weeks. Due to the heat, the fairways and greens were showing signs of stress. I will definitely be playing this course again in the cooler seasons!
ToddDate Played: 07/03/2012
Always good conditions.

WalterDate Played: 06/30/2012
Had a great time. Course was great for all level of players. Greens were a little bumpy due to having been aereated not too long ago. Difficult enough for better players but not too difficult for double digit players. I've played it before and I will play it again.

AndyDate Played: 06/26/2012
Course is fun to play. The greens were a little tough.

A very good course for average to beginner players. Course was in good shape, and enjoyed playing between all of the pines. Not much water in play.
RichardDate Played: 06/18/2012
Very nice! Played West this year & SouthCreek last year, the entire complex is Top Notch!
SamDate Played: 06/15/2012
Staff was very cooperative.
RonaldDate Played: 06/14/2012
Unfortunately it rained the whole round ... the greens were excellent and very consistent ... but the rain made it tough to hold on to the club and I mis-hit a lot of shots ... the course was wide open and I only had one penalty which for me is wonderful.
BobDate Played: 06/12/2012
Very playable for a mid/high handicapper. Really enjoyed the course!
JamesDate Played: 06/12/2012

Too bad it's a power cart required course. It would have been a great walking round.

ShawnDate Played: 05/20/2012
Got to course 30 min. ahead of tee time to warm up, went to range, realized we needed a token, went back to clubhouse and was told we did not have time and was refused a token. Clubhouse clock is set 10 min. fast. Marshalls and rangers were very nice.

DanielDate Played: 05/15/2012
Probably the group's favorite course in MB! Great pro shop, men's clubhouse and grill. We play it every year on our last day, great place to change clothes, eat lunch before our drive back to Ohio. We'll be back!!
RickDate Played: 05/15/2012
Great course. Lots of variety. Risk/reward on several holes make for interesting day. Our foursome also played the West course. Next year we plan to play all three because we were impressed with the great conditions of the whole facility and the proximity to our resort.
ShirleyDate Played: 05/14/2012
The course is very well maintained. Playing early made the greens a little challenging with the wetness, but once it warmed up it was great!
KarlDate Played: 05/13/2012
S,low play waited all day. 5:15 to play round - same thing happened last time. We are not great golfers but we play ready golf and it is always slow there!
RodneyDate Played: 05/12/2012
Loved the course, could not have had a better day, everyone was so nice, will play again soon.
DavidDate Played: 05/09/2012
First time playing here. Pace of play was OK for a busy course (4.5 hours).

KevinDate Played: 04/29/2012
Staff was great.
MichelDate Played: 04/27/2012
We were the first ones out at 7:30 a.m. We were less than impressed with our starter. He had us literally driving in circles to the tee and then he tells us that we had to wait 20+ minutes before he could allow us to tee off. We played fairly quickly, and when we came up to the turn, he pretty much admonished us for playing so quickly and told us to wait while a group of 16 in front of us started off. There were three in our group and two in a group behind us and they were pretty much told the same thing. So we all waited quite a while for the groups in front of us to get going. Not at all impressed with that part of our golf experience.
RobertDate Played: 04/26/2012
Best course we played in Myrtle. Looking forward to playing the other 2 courses next time. Liked everything.
JosephDate Played: 04/24/2012
It's a great course and we like playing all the courses at MBN; however, it would have been nice to know the course was so busy we had to wait for a cart to come in before being able to play. This backed up our tee time and created confusion, forcing us to miss hitting balls off the range before playing.
DomDate Played: 04/23/2012
Greens were pitiful! Nice layout.
ColinDate Played: 04/21/2012
Wanted to play South but I was confused when I made the booking. Really liked West; greens were excellent. Will always play MBN last day because on the way home.

Everything I expected from tee box to green. Excellent facility. King's course next trip.

Wow! What a place to kick off the golf vacation! I have never seen anything like this Arnold Palmer compound. Amazing clubhouse and staff was very friendly and helpful, especially our starter Tony DiBart. The practice facilities were great. I have never seen a course so busy but we weren't even paired. Pace of play was excellent for how busy it was. Course was in excellent condition and very playable. Pretty easy to score. Not too much trouble and you were able to bump up to most greens. Fairways were in great shape and greens rolled true. Perfect place to kick off the vacation and get the confidence up.
ShaneDate Played: 04/03/2012
We were down in Myrtle Beach for the first time during the weekend of March 23rd and played five courses. Myrtlewood, MB National West, MB National SouthCreek, Man O' War, and Wicked Stick. MB National had the most organized course by far. They appeared very concerned about the pace of play and the tee time structure was very good. We moved along with very little delay. We liked SouthCreek more then the West course. Would like to try the North course next time. Nice course.
JasonDate Played: 04/03/2012
Everything was top notch as usual, can't beat this course for the money and overall value.
LeonardDate Played: 03/31/2012
Very nice condition. A little confusing getting around as the people working at the course did not seem to anxious to be helpful. Overall experience was good.
DennisDate Played: 03/30/2012
Course is pretty wide open. Good for the beginner to moderate player. Shouldn't lose too many balls. For mid-March the course was in good shape.
ReeseDate Played: 03/30/2012
<p>The staff in the pro shop are great people. They serve you directly with a smile and make sure that you get the best price. <p>The only problem was the starter. He held us up for a 4-some that was late. The 4-some start time was 8:04, but they didn't show up until 8:12. The entire number one fairway and green was open as we stood waiting on the foursome that was late. He should have let us go so that they rest of the tee times didn't back up.
CrystalDate Played: 03/30/2012
My husband especially likes this course because it is wide open and playable. Also, there are no houses on the course! It is woman-friendly which I like. It is our favorite course when we come to MB.
WayneDate Played: 03/30/2012
Not much terrain differential, course fairly flat, staff and starter very friendly and helpful (i.e., gave course info and cart rules without having to be prompted).
PatrickDate Played: 03/20/2012
Course was packed, but pace of play was very fast, and we finished in 4 hrs. 5 minutes. Very forgiving to my one son who is a novice golfer, but still enough challenge for the other son and me.
VincentDate Played: 03/19/2012
Greens are in great shape. Large bunkers but approach shots could be bumped through on most holes.
MikeDate Played: 03/18/2012
Course had a nice layout and was in excellent condition. The greens rolled nice, not too fast. Pro shop needs logo balls for each course; could not get for West Course.
DavidDate Played: 03/17/2012
Liked course. Pace was good.
RossDate Played: 03/17/2012
The course is in excellent shape. Clean and well maintained. Bag drop, cart staff and starter are very friendly and make you feel welcome upon arrival. The course can be very forgiving if played sensibly. Although we played our first nine in under two hours, our back nine took 2 hours and 45 minutes. Didn't see a course ranger at all.
VincentDate Played: 03/09/2012
One of my all-time favorite facilities. All three courses are fantastic and the people that work there are first-rate.
TimothyDate Played: 02/10/2012
We played on 2/9/2012. Overall good course that plays easy. The fairways had some thin spots and the greens are painted but they putt true. I would recommend this as a feel-good course.
DavidDate Played: 01/23/2012
Staff were very courteous and helpful. Greens were smooth and fast even though they had been sprayed.
DanielDate Played: 01/19/2012
Many enjoyable rounds on MB West, always in great condition. The greens are consistent and just the right speed, never a bad lie on the approaches. Haven't scored this well in some time. Staff, always congenial and helpful. The West course is one of the best deals in MB.
AllenDate Played: 01/19/2012
The course was well maintained and in very good shape. I picked this course because I have a high handicap, and though the course is challenging, it is forgiving on bad shots because when you miss the fairway, you can still hit your ball with very little chance of losing your ball. This course is very good regardless of your handicap and I would recommend it to anyone coming to Myrtle Beach.
MauriceDate Played: 01/06/2012
(Liked the) layout, but not speed of play - members walk, and are very slow.

BarryDate Played: 11/09/2011
Nice layout, but not very green. Perhaps between grass seasons and tees were well worn.
ArtMBgolfDate Played: 11/09/2011
Fairway/tee conditions were very good. The new in 2011 Mini-verde greens were smooth, firm and fast. This course is forgiving and good for a warm-up round as needed. The pine tree lined holes are cleared out in the trees, so it's easy to find the ball and punch out, possibly with a shot to the green. There are only 2 places you can hit it into water and both are hooks, with one a par 3. The steep back to front tilt on most of the greens presents some interesting approach shots and putts. New sand was added to the greenside bunkers. The fox squirrels at MBN will go into your cart and eat out of your hand.
FrankDate Played: 11/08/2011
All of the MBN courses are great, and all are in excellent condition. All staff are friendly, courteous, and helpful, and our experiences have been extremely enjoyable.

WilliamDate Played: 10/20/2011
The course was in excellent condition. The sand traps were like white sandy beaches and usually my weak spot, but not today. I was on fire on every trap I landed in, which today was quite a few. I was out and close to the pin in one shot.
EddieDate Played: 10/20/2011
Played om 10-12-11 after 3 dates of on-and-off rain that was heavy at times. 7:30 tee time and only one hole was wet, greens were soft, fast and rolled true. Great place to play. Only lost one ball (in lake). Course people are nice. Golf cars are in great condition.

Awesome course! My favorite of the weekend. Very challenging greens!
DonaldDate Played: 10/08/2011
There was too much confusion at the bag drop area, no one was telling anyone where to go. It was seemed like a factory just trying to push more and more people through. Also, there was way too much traffic on the course. Carts repeatedly were driving up and down the cart paths. Several with two women and they were constantly talking while we were playing. I have never experienced this kind of activity on a golf course.

LarryDate Played: 09/25/2011
We knew it would be expensive to eat at an on-course restaurant, but decided it was one time, and it was convenient. The hamburger was terrible, and $17.50 was insane for two bad burgers, a bag of chips, and two candy bars.

RobertDate Played: 09/20/2011
We started play on the 10th tee of the SouthCreek course and after finishing 9 holes had about a 45-minute wait before we could tee off on #1. Roger (the starter) was very helpful and professional and went to the starter on the West Course to inform him that we may be a little late for our 1300 tee time on that course due to the backlog on the SouthCreek course. He came back and informed us that all was well and that the starter was aware of our situation, but everything worked out well after all. I was most impressed with the clubhouse and all of the Arnie pictures and items on display. Just a wonderful time at your facility, enjoyed it very much and look forward to playing there again.
ChrisDate Played: 09/13/2011
One of our group's favorite courses, play every year.

Great course. Greens were real soft.
JohnDate Played: 06/27/2011
We had a blast playing the West Course, also enjoyed the starter who made us feel great, came by and checked on us and made sure no one ran up to us, starting us on the back first. He was the reason we played another 9 holes. Even greeted us at the end of our round and sent us off right with another laugh. We would golf at MBN again due to this treatment we received.
TonyDate Played: 06/27/2011
Forgivable play for a mediocre player. Not a frustrating course for a casual player. I will be back.
JohnDate Played: 06/21/2011

SheilaDate Played: 03/09/2011
Wide fairways for the most part; a forgiving course; a few holes requiring accurate shot placement; place your shot below the pin, most greens sloping - a great experience.
StephenDate Played: 03/05/2011
Very nice course, not super long but made you keep it in play. Very windy afternoon, made for some changes in club selection. People were first rate there. Enjoyed myself all day!!
RalphDate Played: 03/02/2011
An ideal course if you are looking for one with few obstacles and easy flow.
TimothyDate Played: 02/18/2011
I would avoid this course if I could. We played 2/18/11 and the greens were the worst I've seen in Myrtle and I've played 11 other courses since January. The course stuck a foursome in front of us at the turn and they were weak golfers who backed up the course. I called them in to the pro shop and was told I will try to find a ranger. NO ranger ever showed up and the back nine was a death march. Totally ruined our day. We got into the grill and there was only two people working, and at 1 p.m. there was a steady flow of people. My advice is to find another place to eat and review your day. Overall, I will not go back unless it's the only course available. I played here last year and things went well but this year was a very bad experience.
ChadDate Played: 02/12/2011
WayneDate Played: 01/21/2011
I liked the West Course just fine, but a couple of my friends thought the fairways were too sparse. They didn't think that there was enough grass on the fairways. What I mean is that they wanted the fairway grass to be a little higher.
YvonneDate Played: 12/10/2010
Unfortunately, I secured my tee time with my charge card and you put it through and then realized your mistake credited me but I was left with a $5 gap, considering exchange rate, etc. We were using a rain check so there should have been no charge.
PatDate Played: 12/10/2010
Beautiful course! First time playing in Myrtle Beach ... was a little nervous being a new golfer, but we were paired with another couple who made the round very enjoyable. Got off to a late start because of the frost ... a little congested at the start, but otherwise a wonderful day!
MarkDate Played: 11/30/2010
Fun course to play.
GrantDate Played: 11/25/2010
MBN West was great. However, we also played at Tradition and felt we should have been told it was cart path only as one of the guys in our group had a hard time walking all day.
RichardDate Played: 11/17/2010
First time I played this course. I liked that it was fairly wide open. Greens were in great shape. Would play here again. Clubhouse was very professional.
DaneDate Played: 11/16/2010
Staff was very accommodating in seeing we got all 36 holes in that we signed up for.
RogerDate Played: 11/01/2010
We usually love everything about this facility but the greens were in tough shape - golfers left divots all over the place. And the pin placements were brutal!
BobDate Played: 10/26/2010
(Would like to have known prior to play) if the greens exceptionally fast, and how crowded does the course get on certain days.
JasonDate Played: 10/19/2010
I was pleased with the overall experience. We took advantage of the tee time discount and it made the round very affordable. The course overall was in good shape, the greens were fast and other than the ball marks were in good shape.
TimDate Played: 10/19/2010
Nice starter course ... a little more wide open and forgiving. Always a good staff and MBN ... greens were a little rough compared to other places.

WaltDate Played: 10/17/2010
More open. Less hidden hazards.
RichardDate Played: 10/13/2010
The West Course was enjoyable to as tough as South Creek but the seven of us had a great time. Open, couple of water shots, no real challenges, just a good course - not hard and not easy. More of a relaxing course than a mental course. Had fun, would play again - probably on first day as a warm-up round. B-
SteveDate Played: 10/12/2010
Loved the course layout. Wide-open fairways but the greens were not in the best shape. Still enjoyed it though. Staff was pleasant enough. Played the round in 4 hrs., it moved along nicely. Will come back.

The course was well maintained and even though there was a pro am in process the staff was still attentive to our needs.
MichaelDate Played: 09/08/2010
Good course, wide open. Got rushed by the starter on the back 9.
CarlDate Played: 09/07/2010
Great course, good layout, staff were very good and friendly, greens were in poor condition (lots of marks and small holes) but still enjoyed the course.
TimothyDate Played: 09/01/2010
The greens were horrible. Very bumpy, just aerated.
ShannonDate Played: 08/23/2010
I liked the speed of play on the course.
BobbyDate Played: 08/18/2010
Golfer-friendly course. Greens were not in good shape at the time but were playable. Every other aspect of the course was in great shape. Enjoyed my round.
PeterDate Played: 08/17/2010
Need to change junior pricing. I should not have to pay full price for a 13 and 10 year old.
PierreDate Played: 08/14/2010
The greens were bad. Apart from that it was a good first course to try in Myrtle; not difficult, lots of space.
DouglasDate Played: 08/12/2010
Everything was outstanding. You might want to update your directions with Mapquest because they have you located east of the Intracoastal Waterway off of 3rd St. But besides that we had an awesome time except for the heat , oh the idea of having a fan on the 16th green was awesome.Thank you all; looking forward to coming back.
EddieDate Played: 08/09/2010
Course is open and fun to play. Had heavy rain two days before and they were mowing a lot, lots of clumps of grass around the greens, really bad. Greens were very rough and dry, drought was very rough on them. Starter was late, had to wait on him to get us started. Had to wait to start back nine due to other groups being started on the back ahead of us (we were first foursome of the day). Overall a good experience, scored well, but have enjoyed other courses more.
MichaelDate Played: 08/03/2010
Excellent service, the course was in a really great condition even if it was raining on half of the game. The fairways and greens were in perfect condition and even playing in the sand traps was fun.
LindaDate Played: 08/02/2010
You should advertise this course as very woman-friendly. My friend who doesn't golf much enjoyed the lack of sand and water. Am playing this course with three others in September and I anticipate they will like it because it is so open.
DanielDate Played: 07/31/2010
Enjoyed the experience but the greens were not in good shape this year. Pace of play was good and overall the course is good!
RexDate Played: 07/25/2010
It was my first experience and they made the situation easy. I was playing with my 4-year-old grandson, who loves to play golf. The starter was very nice and understood our dilemma. Especially, that we would probably be playing slow. He let us go off as a twosome which made it so enjoyable. Thanks MBN-West Course.
MickeyDate Played: 07/24/2010
Beautiful course in great condition. Would like to know why they started a junior tournament off on the back nine. When we made the turn, they were just getting started. Also no beverage cart came around on the back nine. Was only 100* out. Wanted more than a drink of water.
MattDate Played: 07/21/2010
It seemed to be overbooked and it took us almost 5 hrs. due to congestion and such, we asked for just a threesome and where told that would be OK and then at the tee we where told we had a single joing us. I still like the course but like to enjoy the round and not feel like it is overcrowded.
BennyDate Played: 07/19/2010
Great staff and the course was in great shape. A couple of the greens were in bad condition, but overall, a great experience.
DavidDate Played: 07/19/2010
Greens on back 9 of West Course a little rough, but other than that course was in great shape.

Openness was beneficial and provided a gentle breeze to help cool us.
MichaelDate Played: 07/06/2010
Everything was excellent (bag drop personnel, front desk, starter, cart lady and the grill inside the clubhouse). Course is in nice condition.
RobertDate Played: 07/04/2010
In and out of the pro shop in under 1 minute. Very professional. Course in good condition. A couple of greens starting to stress but putted true. Condition was wet due to previous night's rain, and was cart path only, but drained well.
CharlotteDate Played: 06/28/2010
I love the wide greens, ##18 is so pristine with the water. I love the challenge of this course.
KevinDate Played: 06/24/2010
(Would like to have had prior to round) better directions from the mbn.com site. Had to look up directions separately on Google since the address listed on the site was a PO Box, and had I followed those directions I would not have found the course.
ChrisDate Played: 06/22/2010
The course was very friendly inside and out.
EdwardDate Played: 06/12/2010
Very good course and well maintained.
PatDate Played: 06/03/2010
We booked a 5:30 p.m. tee time because it was the first available at the 'twilight' rate. Course staff was surprised that happened?! But it made for a wonderfully enjoyable round for us - no one pushing (except the cart guys, who wanted us in). We completed 18 prior to a beautiful sunset ... For us it was a great round.
GaryDate Played: 05/25/2010
Course was great. We were a bit miffed that the cart girl visited us once in the first 13 holes.
RogerDate Played: 05/20/2010
We love everything about MB National.

RobertDate Played: 04/27/2010
Another very well-maintained course, groups moved at a good pace as there were only my wife and I. Very nice greens and fairways. Enjoyed the round.
JeremyDate Played: 04/27/2010
Course was in good condition, service was great, but it was a course lacking in any WOW factor for me. This was probably not helped by my playing with others who played off the whites so I did too, which meant that many of the par 4s were a bit short for my driver. A solid track, but I would try others ahead of it on my next trip.
RogerDate Played: 04/23/2010
Just a well-kept, fun course.
TracyDate Played: 04/14/2010
Wonderful as usual.
KarlDate Played: 04/13/2010

FrankDate Played: 04/07/2010
Course was in excellent condition, all of the staff was friendly and welcoming. Watch out for the fox squirrels though, they are not afraid to hop in your cart and steal a snack.
ThomasDate Played: 04/04/2010
This course met all the expectations. An incredibly friendly pro shop staff. The cart guys were very helpful with proper suggestions on how to play the West Course. As a single, i went off as a twosome. Ahead of us were two foursomes playing a best ball. The starter was very known on the front side and kept a very good pace of play. The back nine, the starter was not seen as frequently as the front, causing a a bit of a delay. My partner left after 14, I skipped a few holes and at least finished ##18. The pro shop went above and beyond to make up for the delay. The course was in great shape. Will play this course everytime I am in Myrtle Beach.
LindaDate Played: 03/28/2010
I love the greens, take awhile to get used to but the course is soooo green. The squirrels are so cute too. We play it at least 2 times when we are in MB.
LauraDate Played: 03/27/2010

JohnDate Played: 03/26/2010
Great course, paired with a great family. Will definitely return.
HughDate Played: 03/23/2010
They put a junior tournament out in front of us on the back nine without telling us. It took an hour to play 3 holes and we had three groups waiting on the par 3 13th tee. We left at that point, figuring we didn't want to play the back nine in 3 1/2 hours.
SteveDate Played: 03/19/2010
the west course could have been a buit more challenging
LyleDate Played: 03/15/2010
Nice course with tighter fairways and smaller greens.
DavidDate Played: 03/02/2010
Yardage book might have been helpful, to better illustrate what lay ahead - but overall we loved the course!
SteveDate Played: 02/23/2010
Greens were great and the course was more open than Kings North and MB South.
BarbaraDate Played: 01/23/2010
Not much challenge.
ThomasDate Played: 01/05/2010
Cart path rule in effect due to the amount of rain the previous days.
RogerDate Played: 12/12/2009
Course was quite wet. Greens were VERY thin on grass - they need some help in the late fall.
GeorgianaDate Played: 12/10/2009
The West Course is my favorite course to play in Myrtle Beach! We have played it several times, and always make it a point to play it each time we go to Myrtle Beach. The course was in immaculate condition considering the time of year; the greens were very fast, which is to our liking. What we like best about the West Course is the layout through the woodlands area and all the wildlife you see. We don't like playing courses that wind through neighborhoods, so the West Course is perfect for us. We have played other courses designed by Mr. Palmer and find them all to be very challenging and fair (unlike Pete Dye courses).It's always a pleasure to tour Mr. Palmer's gallery at the clubhouse, and it's hard not to be a little overwhelmed by the setting. The pro shop is one of the best I have ever seen, and the inside staff very helpful. However, the cart attendants left a lot to be desired... It was a little busy when we got there so we had to unload our clubs, which wasn't that big of a deal. One of the attendants did greet us after we unloaded and told us to go ahead and check in and then they would put us in a cart. After checking in and returning to the bag area, our clubs were still where we had left them and no attendant to be found so we ended up loading them ourselves. It wasn't a big deal, but it's not the kind of service we've come to expect from MBN after all these years. My husband is a cart attendant at Biltmore Forest CC in Asheville, NC, and he said that this lack of service would be grounds for dismissal if he should fail to accomodate a member or guest after speaking with them and saying he would get them set up. But we didn't mind, and it wasn't that big of a deal to us. It won't stop us from returning there in the future.And the rates we payed were even cheaper than the public courses we play at home. Thank you for setting us up, and we will definitely be turning to you for future bookings. We are still puzzled as to why it cost more at Possum Trot than at MBN. PT is more like a public course and MBN feels like a private country club!
AlanDate Played: 12/08/2009
We enjoyed it very much.
RichardDate Played: 11/16/2009
We had a 12:30 approx. tee time. Didn't tee off until 1:30. The starter kept putting groups in front of us even though there were times when the tee box was empty for 10-15 minutes. We finished in the dusky times.

RandyDate Played: 10/27/2009
The course was in good shape, I thought the greens were a little slow. The starter did send us off the 10th tee and that was great.
RogerDate Played: 09/29/2009
We normally play the South course but due to aerating we played the West Course. We were a little unsure of this course because of the houses along the course, much to our surprise it was wide open and the housing was not a problem. We would definitely play the West again and not confine ourselves to the south.
JimDate Played: 09/08/2009

SeanDate Played: 08/26/2009
All holes are different, challenging layout but fair.
DavidDate Played: 08/15/2009
The West Course at Myrtle Beach National was a great course. I love the pine trees and I found it challenging yet playable for a player of my meager talent. It is truly a great facility and I will try the South next time I am here.

JamesDate Played: 08/08/2009
Beautiful course and in excellent shape. Had rained hard the night before so we had cart path only when we played. That was the only downfall and wish we would have known prior; we may have held off a day or so.
GusDate Played: 08/08/2009
We love playing the course but it had rained hard overnight and it was cart path only. This made for a slow round and a lot of carrying wrong clubs and bad decisions. Not the course's fault.

JasonDate Played: 07/31/2009
I have played the West Course before and recall it being in better shape. The tees and greens were good, a couple of bare spots here and there. However, the fairways were in okay shape. Many had areas that were resodded in which the course allowed for a local rule of a free drop. However, the staff at MBN is top notch.
LarryDate Played: 07/28/2009

The grass was really different than the ones here in the Midwest. I found the course in excellent shape except for the ongoing repairs. The green fees are close to the fees here, which was nice. I'm glad I had the chance to play.
FrederickDate Played: 07/24/2009
Would like to have known prior to our round that the greens were aerated a short time ago, and that they were slow ...
MitchDate Played: 07/23/2009
Called 2 weeks before and asked about the course. Not one time did they mention that the greens would be aerated 5 days before we play. I assume they knew the greens would be aerated and if they would have mentioned it, we would have played elsewhere.
MarcDate Played: 07/21/2009

The clubhouse staff, the starter, and the fact that I played there in the late 70's was a blast from the past.
RogerDate Played: 07/16/2009
MBN overall is one of the finest golf experiences I have ever had. The staff really caters to your every need, the courses are immaculate, and you just can't beat the price. The West course was forgiving which was welcomed on just my 3rd round of the year. Wide fairways gave me a chance to do better. Plenty of places to get into trouble but recovery wasn't too difficult. I played the Southcreek course as well and liked it even more. Enough to come back for an extra round. The front 9 on Southcreek are perhaps my favorite holes anywhere.
DavidDate Played: 07/13/2009
Fair. Tees spotty in some locations. Overall good condition. Excellent value.
MikeDate Played: 07/11/2009
Myrtle Beach National was a class act! Nothing bad to say about this course. Great for people who are starting out like myself. Wide open fairways and fairly easy to find your ball if you hit it into the rough.
MichaelDate Played: 07/07/2009
These fairways were in bad shape from my previous rounds on the West course. There was a lot brown spots and some areas with no grass at all.
JamesDate Played: 07/02/2009
Very nice course. Clubhouse is super nice, and staff was very friendly. Course is fairly open and played somewhat short, which was nice for my junior golfers.
PhilipDate Played: 07/01/2009
This course was very surprising in how great of shape it was in, and also the value. I was so impressed with the course I booked another round for this Thursday, July 2nd. I also enjoyed the fact that there are no homes on the golf course.
GregoryDate Played: 06/29/2009
Greens were in fantastic shape and the course played beautifully. The only downside was the starter. He was rude and not pleasant to any of the guests. I played on 6/23 and I don't need that to ruin my vacation.
ChadDate Played: 06/25/2009
I have never played a round of golf that long before the course was great but the slowness was unbearable we had a golfing party ahead of us that played slow and in my foursome I was paired up with a 74 yr old couple who just started playing golf and they were slow also. But I did enjoyed the golf and ins pite of playing a long round I played very well.
ChrisDate Played: 06/19/2009
1st group out on West Course. Played front in 2:15. Made turn at 10th hole only to run into three (3) groups stacked on #10. Asked Ranger how that happens to 1st group out and god irritated answer of we double tee. When asked why they put three groups on 10th tee when the 1st group is making the turn, just got blank stare and suggestion to fill out a comment card. Played back 9 in 3.5 hours! VERY poorly managed spacing on tee times and arrogant/rude rangers. Course in average shape. Would not go back.

Loved Myrtle Beach National courses (we played the West Course and Southcreek)! Will definitely play them again! Additionally, the staff in the pro shop was first rate. I lost a pitching wedge in a water hazard on the 13th hole at the West Course, and they send a diver to get it and they are shipping it back to me. The service at MBN (from the club drop-off to the pro shop) was first-rate and really made the experience an excellent one! I can't wait to go back and play all three courses!

Arrived at 7:50 a.m. for an 8:18 tee time but didn't get off until 8:54. I can understand getting 10-15 minutes off schedule but more than 35 minutes is unacceptable. Especially earlier in the day and starting on 1 and 10. Make those whom arrive late pay for the consequences of their actions, not me or anyone else that arrived and were ready prior to their tee time. Also, get the grill to stock some fruit.
WalterDate Played: 09/12/2008

RobertDate Played: 07/13/2008
Recently aerated greens were actually in very good shape, considering. That is the reason they only rated 'good.' They probably would have been a 'superior' otherwise. Considering the course had three inches of rain the night before, it was in outstanding shape. The staff was as friendly and helpful as any I have ever experienced.
BillDate Played: 07/12/2008
I thought that the crossover in the morning was not spaced out enough because we started on the first hole and had to wait nearly 30 minutes before we could tee off on the 10th hole.
BillDate Played: 07/08/2008
A fun course. Good variety in the holes requiring good shotmaking skills. As soon as I get those skills, I'll enjoy it more.
