Myrtle Beach National

The three courses available at the Myrtle Beach National are the best-of-the-best with their signature course designs that are inspired by Arnold Palmer! This location offers several of the Grand Strand’s most memorable holes in golf.

The West Course is carved through the Carolina pines and provides you with a backdrop of nature. The traditional layout and design offers fairways, Bermuda grass, and provides the perfect golf experience for any skill level. All the par- 4s play under 400 yards from the middle-back tees, and par-5s are possible to reach in two.

The King’s North course features 18 holes of the most dramatic and picturesque landscape you’ll come across. The par-5 6th hole is nicknamed “The Gambler” and offers a “risk-reward” shortcut to the green. The par-3, island green 12th hole creates an interesting challenge.  A miss to the right, and you’ll land in water, a miss to the left side could land you in the “SC” bunkers. Just wait for the exhilarating finish!

South Creek is an Arnold Palmer signature designed course and is a fan-favorite. It’s the shortest of the three courses at Myrtle Beach National. It features the dramatic par-5 10th hole that wraps around a large lake. The par-4 finishing hole measures 380-yards from the tips and plays as a dogleg with a steep-faced bunker fronting the green. This is a true test to your game.
