Rated 8/5 based on 1022 customer reviews 10 0

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.

Eddie (Newburgh, NY)


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.

Ted (Myrtle Beach, SC)


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.

Ted (Myrtle Beach, SC)


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.

Don (Murrells Inlet, SC)


Played the West course. Great condition. Always look forward to playing here.

Don (Murrells Inlet, SC)


Played the west course. Great condition. Always look forward to playing here.

Ted (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Tee Boxes, Bunkers & Greens are in very good shape. Fairways were spotty & brown ( not sure why with all the rain we had this July & August ) Pace of play was excellent Just under 4 hours.

Ted (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Overall the course is in good shape as compared to just 2 weeks ago when it was almost unplayable. Kudos to the crew all around. Good Job!!!

Jonathan (Dallas, TX)


Very nice course and very friendly staff. Will definitely play here again.

Frank (Windber, PA)


We played recently on our spring trip, and our entire group was VERY please with the course and the condition of the course. As good or better than some higher priced tracks!



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.



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



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.



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.



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.



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.



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.



Nice course in good shape. It was cart path only, although it appeared to be dry enough to ride on the course.



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.

Gilles (St. Damase, Quebec)



Seldon (Greensboro, NC0)


Very good.

Mac (Greensboro, NC)


Very good overall.

Charles (Ellenboro, NC)


Average MB golf course! Good layout! Good job setting pin for average golfers! Our group has been playing for 27 years, and have played about all courses at MB. Overall good course!

Crystal (Urbanna, VA)



Bill (Katy, TX)


Very good.

Dewey (Danville, VA)


OK course at best, hate the Bermuda Greens, too long for Seniors even from the gold tees.

George (Pittsburgh, PA)



John (New Windsor, NY)


Very friendly staff, had a car problem a staff member gave me a jump and told me were the nearest Honda service center was.

Doug (Cobourg, ON)


Loved it -- great course.

Albert (Summerville, SC)





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.

Rob (Charlottesville, VA)



Larry (Knoxville, TN)



Nelson (Kitchener, Ontario)





Hard to rate the course because it was so wet from the rain.

Jim (Front Royal, VA)



Michael (Waterville, ME)


Very playable course.

Lonnie (Pilot Mountain, NC)



Scott (Brooklyn, NY)


Traditional starting course for our group because there isn't too much trouble wide of the fairway (for the rare ball not down the center). MBN clubhouse and staff always nice.

Steve (Strasburg, VA)



Brook (Niagara Falls, ON)



Jeff (Columbia, SC)


Really good

Hugh (Montrose, NY)


Attendants at lot were stars - very friendly, helpful people. Starter was a grumpy, mean man.

Louis (Sainte Adele, QC)



Jim (Walpole, MA)


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

Daniel (Hazleton, PA)


Really good

John (Harrisburg, PA)


My favorite course in Myrtle Beach. Love hole ##18.



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.

Terry (Tulsa, OK)



David (Owasso, OK)


Beautiful course! Very well laid out and manicured.

Earnie (Pasadena, MD)


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.
