Myrtle Beach National – Kings North


In 1996, Arnold Palmer and the Palmer Design Group returned to Myrtle Beach National and transformed the North Course into a brand new golf course – one of the most visually exciting and challenging courses in America. By moving over 400,000 cubic yards of dirt, adding bulkheading, 7,000 azaleas and 600 hardwood trees, enlarging lakes, bunkers and greens, and planting new “Crenshaw” bentgrass greens, Palmer created what many believe to be the finest golf course in Myrtle Beach – 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” short-cut to the green for a chance at eagle, but the two precise shots required bring to mind Kenny Rogers’ song: “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em; Know when to fold ’em; Know when to walk away; and Know when to run.”

The famed par-3 island green has been redesigned, with the 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 Bull’s-eye” 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.
