Rating 70.5

Southcreek winds through a magnificent setting of coastal wetlands and hardwood forests. Most golfers find SouthCreek to be the "finess" course of the three golf courses at Myrtle Beach National. At just over 6,400 yards from the back tees, SouthCreek requires less distance but greater accuracy. Numerous waste areas and well protected bentgrass greens, place a premium on your course management and shot-making ability.

Outstanding course

We booked a tee time for the West Course. When we arrived, we saw how busy it was on West. The pro shop staff suggested we play South Creek, as it was not as busy at the time. This was a great decision!
The staff is friendly and helpful. Bags are unloaded from the car and placed on a cart for you by affable staff. A similar experience was had in the pro shop and with the starter. The restaurant / bar is very nice.
The course is the shortest of the three Arnold Palmer designed courses at MB National. Fairways are a little tighter and require smart club selection on the tee and well aimed hits to landing areas. Yardage markers are liberally placed on each hole, so there is no guessing about distances, necessary to select the right club. Holes are among houses, yet you don't feel crowded by them. There is some water (fairway edges marked by flags) and enough bunkers to make you play smart golf. (It is not a bomb it off the tee design.)
The course is in excellent shape. With a dry summer, it has been watered well; the Bermuda grass is in excellent late-summer shape. They were in the process of dressing the greens with sand; yet when they completed a green, it was very playable with minimal impact of the sand that had been worked into the green.
Pace of play was good. My wife is a slow player; we let several groups play through and no group had to wait for shots.
Of the courses we played during our week in Myrtle Beach, MB National South Creek was the most enjoyable by far.

Myrtle Beach National

Played 36 at myrtle beach national with South Creek being first up. First class facility. Starts with bag drop. People were helpful and answered all questions. South Creek was a fun course, conditions were pristine. Tall pines, manicured rough , fast true greens. Rangers were out to keep pace up. A little waiting but they were on top of it. Ranger would stop and ask how it was going , how we were enjoying our round, etc. Nice touch. Played the West Course on a replay. A little shorter, obviously The easier of the 3 courses. Flawless fairways, boxes and greens. What else you need!?! Clubhouse has a neat full swinging snack bar with smiley people. And eating while surrounded by Arnold Palmer pictures and equipment!?! No brainer to play here, and already looking forward to next time!! Enjoy!!

Enjoyable for All Levels

Played 36 at Myrtle Beach National with the first 18 on South Creek. We were all impressed with the conditioning of the greens and how enjoyable the course was overall. It is a shorter track, but it's not without challenges. The holes allow opportunities for short, straight hitters as well as power players to succeed and make birdies. Overall, the course is a great value for the price and you can replay on the much more expensive King's North for a low rate.

Mb national southcreek

Had a fun time playing South Creek...course in good shape..greens were smooth and rolled with good pace. Kings North is obviously the gem of the property but this was a fun lil course. Lots of fun holes lots of par 4's under 400 yds requiring accuracy not distance....warning*** they run split tees...don't think a morning time will help you beat the hackers...u wait on them at the turn

Good to return to Myrtle Beach National, Southcreek

I've played this course about 5 years ago and remember it a being challenging but fair. Nothing has really changed. Overall conditions were good considering the area had received 4+ inches of rain a couple of days before.

Course was in great shape

Was a single and paired up with 3 golfers from Germany. Only one spoke broken English but had a great time. Course was in great shape. The greens ran very true if you putted on the correct line. I would play here again.

Excellent all around experience!

I played this course in late May and it was great. The greens fees were incredible for the condition and layout ($44.00). A course like this would be over $75.00 in Massachusetts. The fairways were well maintained and the greens were great. The staff was extra friendly and let my 22 year old son join us as he was injured and could not play. Great track- would definately go back!

Very nice course!

Played three courses while in myrtle and this was the best! Greens a tad slow but the rest of the course more than made up for it. Great value at $68 on golfnow.com.

Wet but rewarding

Weather finally cooperated with us and allowed us to play. Wet fairways meant cart path only golf, but on the other hand, made any heavy shots not so heavy. Finished in just under 4 1/2 hrs.
Personally, I like to see marshals on their rounds. It means the club is interested in more than just your up-front money. Saw our marshall four times. (As many as the beverage cart.) He was courteous and informative.
