About

Par 72
Length 7017

Rating 74.2
Type Resort
For years, the King's North Course at Myrtle Beach National has been the most requested and best recognized golf course on the Grand Strand. The par-3, third hole with its island green and South Carolina-shaped sandtraps has become the signature hole for Myrtle Beach. King's North features some dramatic and unique holes. The par-5 sixth hole is nicknamed "The Gambler" and features an unusual island fairway which offers golfers a risk-reward short-cut to the green for a chance at eagle.The 18th hole, nicknamed "The Bull's-eye" by Golf Magazine, is a sight to behold. More than 40 sandtraps guard either side of the fairway and the green reaches out into a lake offering, at times, a very tempting pin placement.

Kings North - usually always a good bet

My Day 4 (final) course for the 2018 Myrtle Beach World Amateur.

Great course. Seems to always be in good condition. Fun, challenging layout. Pretty near perfect shape. Greens nice and rolled true. Bunkers in good shape as was rest of course. Course has some very good holes. This is an inland course so no noted for its views. But a solid golf course.

Friendly staff.

Worth playing once or twice

Great layout. Makes you use all your clubs. Must be able to draw and fade your longer clubs but the short irons and wedges are straight in.

Greens a little smaller, typical of an Arnold Palmer design...target golf. Excellent course conditions. Good clubhouse and friendly staff. When you pull up you'll think "what's the fuss about this place" because it doesn't look like much. However the course itself is really good.

Challenging from the normal tee boxes you play but if you move up a box, club down off the tee you wont have to work as hard and may have a more enjoyable round.

Fun Course - Excellent Conditions

Booked online through course web site - $72 after 1:00 pm felt like a very fair price for this course and this time of year.

Arived about 50 minutes before tee time. Bag drop team friendly and helpful. Easy checkin (prepaid). $4 for range token. Range conditions good, but a clock would be a welcome addition. Putting green near #1 tee was true to course conditions.

Course in excellent condition throughout - fairways were a just a wee bit shaggy. Greens putted true, but judging the break was often a challenge. Water in play on almost every hole. Nice layout, but it's a test from the gold tees - 7 of the 10 4-pars are near or over 400 yards, all 5 on the back nine.

I'd go back in a heartbeat.

King of Myrtle Beach

The layout and character of MBN Kings North was exceptional and challenging. Course conditions were immaculate and well worth the time to play it. I would highly recommend for any serious golfer looking to play in Myrtle Beach!

Very Disappointed

My disappointment comes from the layout of the course. The fairways were beyond wet and there was no rain for weeks. It's off our must play list

Awful

This is usually one of my favorites.

Greens are torn up. Many spots in the fairways were mud. Bunkers weren't properly maintained. And they're still charging full price. A major disappointment and you've lost a customer.

Great track, great condition

I played King's North as a single with a late afternoon tee time. I know it is July, but I ran into one foursome and they quickly let me play thru.

The course was in great shape. The greens rolled true and fairly fast.

It has been a while since I played here, but it still is one of the best on the Strand.

Must play

Have had problems with pace of play here before, but we got through in 4 hours. Great collection of holes. Course was in great condition. Have played here the last six years and will again.
