About Myrtle Beach National - Kings North Course (Myrtle Beach, SC)

An Arnold Palmer design, the Myrtle Beach National Kings North Golf Course sports one of the best-known holes along the Grand Strand. Known as “The Gambler,” the par-5 6th hole is one of the most discussed and photographed, holes there is along the Grand Strand.

Golfers can choose to take the long way around the Gambler Hole via a sharp dogleg to the left or they can opt to lay-up on part of the fairway that’s its own island, leaving a mid-iron shot to a green that juts out into the lake. Hit the island and you’re in great shape. Miss it and you’re not, and therein, of course, lays the gamble. Watch out, you may need a few balls if you aren't accurate with your gamble.

One of the best-conditioned courses in the area, Kings North offers a deal of hole variety and rolling fairways passing through pines, a multitude of ponds and waste areas. Already one of the prettiest courses along the coast, the absence of housing makes it even more so. Even though there are a number of tricky shots to island greens and shots over water, the course is rated as one of the top ones for women, with six sets of tees.

Great Arnold Palmer ...

Great Arnold Palmer Design! Very fun, challenging, and visually appealing. Has a stadium golf feel to it on a few holes. Certainly a Top Tier course in Myrtle Beach!
