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.
