One of three premier layouts at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club, King’s North is an Arnold Palmer-designed gem offering several of the Grand Strand’s most memorable holes.
Redesigned by “The King” in 1996, King’s North made its way onto Golf Digest’s prestigious list of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses – 2004” and Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” has awarded it 4.5 STARS ever since. Plus, from 2000-2004 Golf for Women ranked it their “Top 100 Courses in America.”
King’s North features 18 of the most dramatic and picturesque holes you’ll ever encounter. The par-5 6th hole (nicknamed “The Gambler”) features an island fairway that offers a “risk-reward” shortcut to the green. If the island fairway is chosen it could leave a good chance at going for this green in two, thus the “Gamble.” However, a safe layup to the right and a short approach over water will always keep you guessing. The par-3, island green 12th hole creates a challenge of its own. A miss to the right and you could find the water, miss left and you could find the distinctive “SC” bunkers that would leave a delicate bunker shot. And don’t forget the par-4 finishing hole at 18, featuring an array of 40 bunkers escorting you to an exciting finish of an exhilarating round.

“From the time you drive up your are impressed with the facility. Staff are friendly and helpful and really appreciate your coming to golf. We lucked out as the thunder storm that was suppose to drench the area passed us by. The day was fantastic. The course is challenging and was made even more so by the strong winds that blew constantly. The fairways are generous.”
