This sensational Arnold Palmer signature course was recognized among America’s Best New Courses when it opened in 1996.

King’s North made its way onto Golf Digest’s prestigious list of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses- 2004” and Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” has awarded it 4.5 STARS ever since! Plus, from 2000-2004 Golf for Women ranked it their “Top 100 Courses in America”, truly a must play in the Myrtle Beach area.

Famous for the island green and South Carolina shaped sand traps of Hole 3; the famed par-5 sixth hole, nicknamed “The Gambler” that tempts golfers with a shortcut to the green via an island fairway. (Two great shots allow a chance to eagle); and with over 40 sand traps guarding the fairway on Hole 18 it is easy to see why this has been the most recognized and requested course on the beach for over 25 years.

    So we played today and the course was great the bar and food staff were terrific top notch. BUT the old grumpy in the pro shop sucked. I had a $27 gift card to use in the shop. Im in the military and maybe one day after vets day I thought I may get a discount on some merchandise NOT THE CASES HERE Im in the Canadian military and was told NO DISCOUNT FOR YOU PEOPLE. my purchase of some underwear came to $25.10 so I thought I can get a golf ball for three dollars for free but he still charge me the extra money $2.10 for the ball with a logo on. Thinking Im going back to play there not a chance. I hope that old grumpy guys get whats coming to him. SO UPSET.

    We played 4 courses in the Myrtle Beach area, all of them very nice, but Kings North was our hands down favorite. There were 6 of us in the group and the other 5 were double digit handicappers - shooting mid-90s and above - and they loved the course for its playability and beauty. The layout was fantastic. The golf shop was great as well. Overall, a five star experience.

    Great course and service. Play it every time I come to MBN

    Slow play was an issue, course design was beautiful, a little bit more groundskeeping work throughout would make this course 10/10.

    My favorite course I played during the week. Very challenging, especially the bunkers. Loved "The Gambler" hole, but played it safe. The starter was very friendly and helpful.
