Myrtle Beach National overview
Myrtle Beach National is located 10 miles inland from central Myrtle Beach, along route 501 which takes you to Conway. It is regarded as one of the premier golf venues in this area with three championship Arnold Palmer designed courses. The onsite King’s Pub offers spacious indoor seating with widescreen TVs and an outdoor patio which overlooks the King’s North Course.
There are three magnificent championship courses at Myrtle Beach National, all of which are Arnold Palmer designs. The King’s Course is regarded as one of the best public courses in the US, featuring a range of challenging and enjoyable holes. South Creek is the shortest of the three courses but requires accuracy from the tee or else the multiple waste bunkers will gobble up any errant shot. The West Course is nestled within the local Carolina pines that create beautiful backdrops on many of the holes.
