Opened in 1973 and fully-renovated in 1996, King’s North at Myrtle Beach National bears the name of “The King” himself, Arnold Palmer, and has received critical acclaim as a top-ranked public course in the U.S. Palmer’s design is stylish and contemporary, like the late legend himself, with a combination of woodland holes, picturesque par 3s, dogleg par 4s and the famously risky par-5 6th. Aptly named “The Gambler,” players at No. 6 must decide whether to play safely out to the right off the tee, or risk it and go for the island fairway, which affords the opportunity to go for the green in two.
Pawleys Plantation is Jack Nicklaus’ signature course in the Myrtle Beach area, with “The Golden Bear” presenting coastal golf in a way that few have ever been able to capture. Nicklaus’ masterpiece is visually stunning, with its Lowcountry setting of oak canopies and picturesque marsh views. A round at Pawleys includes driving your cart across the top of an old dike spanning the marsh that was once a part of an old rice plantation located on the site, affording a unique opportunity to enjoy the wildlife that inhabits the area.
The first golf course built in Myrtle Beach and truly “The Granddaddy” of them all, one word to describe the layout at Pine Lakes is “classic.” The course has just two par 5s (Nos. 5 and 10) and plays to a par 70. There is a good mix of straightaway and dogleg par 4s, as well as a variety of unique par 3s — some requiring forced carries over water — and others forcing players to hit it a long way off the tee. With the smell of salt in the ocean air as you play, Pine Lakes provides a golf course that, while just seconds from the hustle and bustle of central Myrtle Beach, takes players back to a different time.
