MB National Kings North

Located at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club, this course was redesigned in 1996 with plenty of clever and fun tricks by “The King”, Arnold Palmer. As an Arnold Palmer design, King’s North continues to be one of the most memorable golf courses. Knowing that location matters, this course is a quick drive from where you are staying whether it's Myrtle Beach or North Myrtle Beach. In addition, this course was recently ranked on Golf Digest’s prestigious list of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses”, “Places to Play”, and received a 4.5-Star rating. This is a diverse and playable course that holds a ranking in “Top 100 Courses in America”, by Golf for Women!

MB National Kings North

MBN King’s North, is an 18-hole course with every hole delivering stunning views and lavish greens. To protect the fairways and greens over forty sandy bunkers are strategically placed throughout the course. For a touch of finesse, the 3rd-hole was designed in the shape of South Carolina with deep sandy bunkers and an island green. The 6th-hole is nickname “The Gambler” featuring a risk-reward shortcut to the green. The 12th- hole presents its own challenge- to miss a shot here the penalty is steep. A miss to the left…golfers come face-to-face with South Carolina’s finest bunkers and a miss to the right…say hello to water. Accuracy is required on the 18th-hole. This hole is protected by over forty sand bunkers!

First time visit and very glad we did. MBN is a great facility with a very courteous staff. This was our first course this month in South Carolina that we were able to play without cart path only restrictions due to all the rain. The Kings North course did not disappoint! This is a fun, challenging track. Lots of water and creative bunkering made for a visible feast. No homes lining fairways to detract from the enjoyment. Aside from some thin areas on greens and the fact that it isn’t prime growing season in this area yet, conditions are very good but not as great as it gets. Definitely a must play in Myrtle Beach and a great value.

This course is gorgeous! Player friendly but still challenging. Even in the dead of summer it's still in decent shape. Plenty of wild life to look at. Workers were extremely nice. Pace of play was decent. Very impressed.

Went into the round knowing it's mid summer and this course is best in the spring. But with that in mind it was in great shape. A few of the greens were a little beat up but again that's because of it being mid summer. The staff is extremely friendly and I felt the course to be very playable.

Great course, lots of water and sand. Challenging enough yet playable for amateurs and beginners alike. Very open in some areas for the wild drives and playable from almost anywhere. Shot a 90 which if decent for me.

Played the West course and it was excellent, asked to play the South course and was sent out on a course under construction on a few holes. We paid full rate. I went in to comment about being charged for this mess. Why couldn't they put us out on one of the other nines? Guy at the counter shrugged his shoulders. Won't be back!

Pace of play a little slow, but not complaining. Lot of people taking advantage of warm December weather on a great layout. Good to see repairs being made on some of the retaining walls. Never played there in Spring or Summer, so can imagine it's an estetically nice looking course when everything is in bloom.

Course is in awesome shape, they just over book the times, played on 7-26-2019 and actually just quit after taking 1 hour and 45 to play 4 holes. To many people booked on top of each other, dam shame because we really wanted to play this course. Will never waste $75 for this course again

One of my favorite places I played this vacation. I’m a huge Arnold Palmer fan, so this was a must play. I played Kings North, which was an outstanding course. There is water on 17 of 18 holes, so you need to be careful. The course was in very good shape and the greens were nice. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought the rate was slightly high, but with Arnold as designer and condition I won’t complain too much. Would recommend.

A real treat for golfers. Course is in tip top shape. Above average difficulty with plenty of waste bunkers and water. Famous hole is number six, The Gambler. Go for the gamble and you have great chance for a birdie. We had an afternoon rate of under $70 which was a great deal.

Golf course was in excellent condition. Greens are fast and true. Fairways are in great condition but soft, so don't expect to get any roll-out. There is water on 16 of 18 holes that has to be negotiated. Defiantly one of Arnie's signature designs. Lots of Arnie's memorabilia in the club house on display. One side of the building is dedicated to Arnie's success.

Myrtle Beach National remains one of the finest golf complexes in Myrtle Beach. 3 18 hole courses featuring the North Course designed by Arnie. The West is an easier test of golf for the average player. Club house is well stocked and has welcoming staff to assist you. Guys at the club drop are always friendly and greet you with a smile.

Used to LOVE this course 10 years ago. It WAS immaculate. Came from Utah to play it with my 16 year old for his birthday (10/18/2018). The course was in sad shape- not well kept like it used to be. Cart paths had large holes and bumps and in need of repair. Clubhouse doors were old and worn. The presentation was not close to what it used to be. Very little flowers and staff to maintain the course. I really hope it will return to it's Golf Top 100 courses it was in 2007. It will take a new owner and a lot of time and effort it appears. Until then, not worth $100 bucks. Maybe $50 or 60 at best! Trust me. Go to TPC or somewhere else.

Course is in great shape. We played the West course and it is very open allowing for a little better scoring than I'm use to. The greens are in great shape and putt true with some subtle breaks. Staff was friendly and accommodating and the starter threw some jokes into his course description giving us a good laugh right before we started. Definitely want to play this course again.

Could have been 5 stars but they had aerated the back 9 recently and the greens were very sandy. Loved driving g thru the fairway bunkers. The layout is a work of art. The gambler hole, the island par 3, the bunker that rises out of the water on a par 4 right in front of the green. Terrific golf course!

Course in good shape was very fun to play lost a star though due to your grounds keeping crew. Might want to inform guy on tractor using blower to wait until people hit. He continued blowing without stopping which was a little frustrating. Other than that hat a wonderful time will probably be back.

Played first weekend in August and had a few concerns about the greens I had read on here. Sure, a couple, literally two, were not immaculate, but the great majority of them were in great shape and putted well, especially after the deluge of rain they had been getting. Just a fun course and always in great shape.
