Myrtle Beach National Golf Club - King's North Course
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.

Placement Golf on Steroids
First of all the course was an excellent value with COVID pricing. The course conditions and staff were good too. I just didn't like PAR 70 course with only two par fives and there were many short dog leg left holes that require a perfectly placed tee ball with an iron or fairway wood. The gimmick hole GAMBLER is one of the bright spots. The par threes are short but fun. i doubt I will ever play this course again but it is ONLY because of the placement golf layout and not the condition of the course or the staff. The other two courses are always in good shape also.
Arnie's Place at the Beach
Played everywhere over 40 years. I love this course. It has all the feel of greatness and deserves everything ever said about it. No longer on the 100 list, but it should be. It is a perfect example of a Parkland Course. You can pay much more in Myrtle, and my rate was Covid19 impacted, but this stands with other Myrtle Beach notables like Caledonia, True Blue, Love at Barefoot. The Golf press has simply forget it is here.
This course was in great shape when 4 of us played on our way to Myrtle Beach. The course had some tough holes but every course has tough holes but it depends if you play the right tees. The staff was very friendly, the pro shop was very nicely stocked. The beer prices were great.
Played this course a long time ago and I insisted that we play this course on our recent trip to Myrtle. This course is by far the best layout and conditions of the courses we played and most were in immaculate shape. We were the second group off, but the group ahead of us was very slow. We informed the ranger and after he spoke with them we cruised. The greens were fast and true and the fairways were lush. The routing is enjoyable and not too challenging. The wind was rough today, but a major stormed passed the night before so I’ll take that over a rainy round. If I had to choose something to fix I wish they spice up the club house and bathrooms. Other than that this place is perfect
Nice course in great condition - pace of play a problem
Third time on this course. $80 on course web site seemed very fair for this time of year. A very enjoyable course in great condition. Tees, fairways, and greens were super. Rough is just starting to come in, but it's very playable. Everyone I encountered was friendly and polite.
Only negative is the 5-hour duration of the round. Never saw a marshal/ranger. Foursome two groups ahead of us had almost two full holes open in front of them. King's North is a fairly compact layout - there's some trouble, but nothing that should make a 5-hour round the norm. It's easy to fill the tee sheet this time of year - maybe they don't need to care.
1st time playing here and I will say it is well worth every penny. Course is in perfect condition right now from tee to green and that’s saying something considering how wet it’s been down here lately.
Loved the layout but...
This will be a recurring theme for our week in Myrtle, everything could have been so much better if the courses, knowing that their course(s) are not in the best shape because of overseeding and wet conditions (combo of rain and them trying to get the seed to take) , would just be upfront and also offer a discount for a less than ideal product. I really liked the layout, it was fun and challenging, but anytime a course is challenging you don't need mud on the ball every shot, no roll, slow greens , and furry fairways/tees. Although Myrtle Beach National was probably in the best condition of all the Myrtle Beach course we played, it still wasn't very good and I think the staff there would admit that, just not ready to do anything about it. Probably won't go back for that very reason...
MBN - King's North is a must play in MB. No houses nearby...just an interesting course. Would definitely play this again sometime.
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.
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.
What a Pleasure
Attention to detail was present at every turn. The entire staff should be rewarded for their effort! The layout make you think and use every club in your bag.
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!
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
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.
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.
