King’s North at Myrtle Beach National is Arnold Palmer’s lasting gift to the Grand Strand
Many of the game’s greatest players left their marks on the Myrtle Beach golf market, but none more beloved and charismatic than “The King” himself, Arnold Palmer, who built King’s North at Myrtle Beach National to serve as a place for all members of Arnie’s Army to come and enjoy a truly magnificent golf experience. King’s North ranks #24 in Coastal Golfaway’s Top 25 Myrtle Beach Golf Course Rankings and should definitely be a priority on your next golf vacation.
Originally opened in 1973 and fully renovated in 1996, King’s North consistently receives rave reviews, including national acclaim as a top-ranked public course. The design is stylish and contemporary, much like the man for whom the course is named, with a combination of woodland holes strategically mixed with picture-perfect par 3s, dogleg par 4s and famously risky par 5s – most notably, the iconic par-5 6th.
Aptly named “The Gambler,” players must bet whether to play safely out to the right off the tee, or risk it and go for the island fairway to the left, a bet that affords the opportunity to go for the green in two when it pays off, though not without the added risk of water surrounding the green, also.
A course that stretches more than 7,000 yards from the back tees, frequent water, myriad bunkering and an abundance of wildlife make a round at King’s North a challenging yet mesmerizingly fun must-do for all who visit Myrtle Beach to play golf. And with access to Myrtle Beach National’s full range of facilities, including driving range, multiple putting greens and a clubhouse full of staff who are ready to make your experience as enjoyable as possible, King’s North is the right choice for your next Coastal Golfaway!
