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 upon 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.

Needs work. Greens are in need of some TLC. EVERYONE had their hand out for a tip before service was rendered. Speed of play was excellent. A few groups of drunks with loud music; would be nice if there was a Marshall. Overall would play again, better courses out there for the same money.
Only because it was my worst round of the weekend!
Course is real nice, enjoyed it. I would say it needs to be upgraded to equal the prices charged.
