Rating 70.5
Type Resort
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.

First Time Playing

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.

Is this a golf course or a community?

We played all three courses at MBN and really enjoyed Kings North and West course...but the South course was very disappointing. The starter said "it was a little tighter" but we found it ridiculously tight. It's woven through a community and the homes are literally right on the course. There is very little room for error. The condition of this course wasn't as good as the other two either. Don't waste you're time or money on this one.

The weakest link at MBN

I'm a big fan of two of the three courses at Myrtle Beach National, but I have a hard time getting on board with Southcreek. It's a little too dated, cramped and generic for my tastes. It's the only course here at MBN that has houses lining every hole and it's shortish yardage with severe doglegs means a lot of irons off the tee. Seniors may enjoy this element though (but not the wealth of sand). If you're on one of the many golf packages that includes free replays, stick to the other two here. The West is the same price point and has a much more fun routing, while King's North is one of my favorite MB splurges.
