Full Description of Kings North Golf Course

Holes #6, #14, #16 and #18 at the King's North golf course are featured in the book "The 100 Greatest Holes along the Grand Strand," published by The Sun News. King's North has been named "South Carolina's Course of the Year" by the National Golf Course Owners Association and "America's Top 10" by Golf Digest. For over 25 years, Myrtle Beach National King's North was the most requested and best recognized course on the beach. The par-3, 3rd hole with its island green and SC shaped sand traps is the signature hole for Myrtle Beach. In 1996, Arnold Palmer and the Palmer Design Group returned to Myrtle Beach National and transformed the North Course into a brand new course-one of the most visually exciting and challenging golf courses in America! 

Palmer created what many believe to be the finest course on the Grand Strand--King's North. King's North features some of the most dramatic and unique holes in all of golf. The par-5, 6th hole--nicknamed 'The Gambler"--features an island fairway which offers golfers a risk-reward shortcut to the green for a chance at eagle, but the two shots are a definitely a gamble!

The famed par-3 island green has been redesigned, with addition of a wooden bulkhead to create greater definition to an enlarged green. It has retained the distinctive "SC" sandtraps. The front and back nines have been reversed, so the island green is now the 12th hole. The 18th hole, nicknamed "The Bullseye" by Golf Magazine, has over 40 sandtraps guarding either side of the fairway, and the green reaches out into a lake offering a number of very tempting pin placements.

"The King"
We look forward to playing this course and we have ended our last 3 trips with a round at MBN King's North. With the winter the South had this year it was probably 3 or 4 weeks too early to experience the full beauty of King's North but none the less it is always in great shape and fun to play. Played on 3/08/15

Excellent as usual. Pace of play decent for March. Greens the fastest we had all week.
Like the layout here better than Grande Dunes for the premium course in the MBN package.
#14 - Brian Garwood - 03/19/2014 - 17:01
great course
Our group played Kings North last thursday.the course was in great shape and had some great holes. We played for $38 at 1:30 pm on the 48 Hr rate and I thought we got a great deal. I would definitely play this course again at that rate but wouldn't pay the normal rate of near $100 for it.
#13 - kent - 03/07/2014 - 14:05
One course you have to play in Myrtle. Like my frien say: don t even think about playing the gambler the safe way. I worth the drill to try it in 2.
#12 - Denia - 11/05/2013 - 12:44

#11 - Jack D. McEwen - 10/31/2013 - 11:47

Midwest winter escape
Wanted to like this course. A couple of holes a bit tricked up. Tourists paying regular season fees paid too much for the poor conditions. Condos placed too close to the fairways. Certainly not easy to relax in the screen porch when a stream of golfers flow two club lengths away.
#9 - Tom Litsheim - 04/19/2013 - 08:54
1st time playing it. great golf course. will play it again very soon
#8 - Kraig Smith - 03/23/2013 - 06:47

#6 - Jon Reed - 11/16/2012 - 21:40
Won't go back
The course was too busy it took just over 5 hours to play. Don't like the new greens.
#5 - Casey White - 10/17/2012 - 11:55
Awesome course. The most beautiful course to play and the course was in incredible shape . We ( group of 8 ) play this on every trip.
#4 - Mallard Club - 10/08/2012 - 18:07
