Myrtle Beach National - WestMyrtle Beach, SC
From the moment “The King,” Arnold Palmer, and his team designed Myrtle Beach National’s trio of layouts, the property has been one of the the area’s most important facilities. Beginning in 1973 with King’s North, MBN opened new courses for three consecutive years, concluding with SouthCreek in 1975.
Home to a full service clubhouse, a large driving range and a pair or practice putting greens, Myrtle Beach National is an ideal property to anchor a golf trip.
King’s North is one of three acclaimed courses at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club, located just a few miles inland from central Myrtle Beach off of Highway 501 and very much in the center of the Grand Strand. Designed by Arnold Palmer, the current iteration of the course opened in 1996 after extensive renovations and was immediately recognized for its high quality of design, with a number of iconic and challenging holes.
Palmetto at Myrtlewood Golf ClubMyrtle Beach, SC
Located in the Carolina Forest section of Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand, World Tour is the brainchild of golf course designer Mel Graham. His vision was to recreate 18 of the world’s most elite, renowned and challenging golf layouts from 15 courses in three countries and nine states. The result is an utterly unique golf experience – a trip around the world played on a course you’ll never forget!
Home to 27 holes, Wild Wing has long been one of the Myrtle Beach area’s most popular properties. A Jeff Brauer-Larry Nelson design, the Avocet Course is at the heart of Wild Wing’s appeal, challenging players with a design that is as fun to play as it is creative.
After a challenging game of golf, many members and visitors choose to visit the 10,000 square-foot Mediterranean-styled clubhouse which includes a full-service golf shop, lockers for men and women, a private dining room, large dining area and an outside veranda that overlooks the 9th and 18th greens of the grande golf course.
