Course Spotlight: World Tour Golf Links & King’s North at Myrtle Beach National

Canadian-based SCOREGolf offers a video profile of two of The Grand Strand’s most iconic courses: King’s North at Myrtle Beach National and International World Tour Golf Links

Narrator: For avid fans and players that want to play some of the most iconic holes in golf, World Tour Golf Links in Myrtle Beach is the place to go. Driving into the property, flags from around the globe blow in the breeze saluting each country and the famed course World Tour is honoring.

Meredith Kirk: World Tour is so unique to Myrtle Beach because this course is comprised of holes that are inspired from all over the world by some of the greatest holes in golf. If you don’t have the opportunity to go to St. Andrews or Augusta National, you could come right here to Myrtle Beach and play World Tour!

Narrator: Laid out by Mel Graham, the 6500-yard course is a history lesson on top of a fun round, and a peek at the world’s most exclusive facilities.

Tom Plankers: It sounds like it would be a chopped up golf course with all these different holes, but it’s very seamless. We get a lot of golfers here who like the history of the game, but it’s just the experience of playing a golf hole that you probably will never be able to get on anywhere.

Narrator: The club is made up of two sets of nines, the Open nine and the Championship nine. The Open nine features holes inspired by national opens and top-rated courses in North America. It even includes a Canadian connection with holes resembling the opener at the National Golf Club of Canada in Woodbridge, Ontario. The open nine at World Tour is book-ended with two famous holes inspired by the old course at St. Andrews, the 1st and the 18th. Just as in Scotland, a pair of par 4’s share a wide fairway here that traverse a creek similar to the Swilcan Burn. There’s even a bridge on the 9th to cement the connection. Further along the open nine are holes resembling Dye’s island green at TPC’s Sawgrass’ Stadium Course and the Jack Nicklaus designed 15th hole at English Turn among others.

The championship nine includes holes inspired by those played in all four men’s major championships with one of the obvious highlights being Amen Corner at Augusta National. World Tour offers it’s own version of a celebrated 3-hole stretch with influences from the Hogan Bridge and Ray’s Creek present as well. Also, on the Championship nine are holes similar to the 8th at Royal Troon with it’s postage stamp green and the 11th at Bay Hill, one of Arnold Palmer’s favorite risk-reward challenges.

All together, the assortment of well-known holes from both North America and Europe make for an interesting day on the golf course and a glimpse at history, too!
