In the late 1990’s, Arnold Palmer and his design team returned to Myrtle Beach to freshen up what was already one of the region’s premier courses. Palmer and his team followed the original routing while making some sweeping changes that catapulted King’s North into the “Top 100 Public Courses in America.” The Myrtle Beach National Company demonstrated their respect and appreciation by changing the North Course to King’s North.

While there are a number of holes that stand out as memorable, there are three in particular that have earned a place among the best holes on the Beach.

The par-5 6th hole is nicknamed “The Gambler.” It features an island fairway that you can play to in pursuit of an eagle or birdie, or you can take the safer route around the right side. Quite often, your decision is made easier by the success or failure of your opponent.

The 12th hole is a short par-3 to an island green that features two bunkers off of the left side of the green, shaped in an S and C, a reminder that you’re playing in the golf-rich state of South Carolina.

The final hole is a par-4 that is protected by a green-side pond and no less than 42 bunkers all the way up the fairway. It’s quite a site from the back tees – one you’ll enjoy and long remember.
