I've played this course every year since 1990 as part of the Retired Military Golf Classic during the week of Memorial Day.

This is Myrtle Beach National's premier course, with premier pricing, and it's one of the best in the area. Has some memorable holes, including "The Gambler" with its island fairway, #18 with its 40-odd bunkers, and the signature par 3 with the "SC" bunkers alongside. Other than those, King's North looks a lot like the other two National courses (and most others in Myrtle Beach): lots of pines, not much rough, some water, but frankly, literally nothing that you'll remember three hours after finishing. I'd say this one is worth a play, though, just for the three "big" holes, especially The Gambler.

The Clubhouse is shared by all three National courses, and is well-staffed with friendly and competent people. This course is walkable, as it's pretty flat, and most holes are adjacent, with only a few long hauls from green to tee.

I highly recommend you try it.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level
