Myrtle Beach National Golf Club - South Creek Course
Southcreek winds through a magnificent setting of coastal wetlands and hardwood forests. Most golfers find SouthCreek to be the "finess" course of the three golf courses at Myrtle Beach National. At just over 6,400 yards from the back tees, SouthCreek requires less distance but greater accuracy. Numerous waste areas and well protected bentgrass greens, place a premium on your course management and shot-making ability.

Conditions not great
Sad to only give this 2*. We played this course 3 years ago and it was great. Today, not the case at all. Greens were in rough shape, looked like they were losing a few. Fairways were hard and and had random dead patches of sand throughout. Weeds over growing the fairways in spots. Tee boxes were torn up. Typically Founders courses are pretty solid, right now Southcreek isn't playing like that at all
We booked a tee time for the West Course. When we arrived, we saw how busy it was on West. The pro shop staff suggested we play South Creek, as it was not as busy at the time. This was a great decision!
The staff is friendly and helpful. Bags are unloaded from the car and placed on a cart for you by affable staff. A similar experience was had in the pro shop and with the starter. The restaurant / bar is very nice.
The course is the shortest of the three Arnold Palmer designed courses at MB National. Fairways are a little tighter and require smart club selection on the tee and well aimed hits to landing areas. Yardage markers are liberally placed on each hole, so there is no guessing about distances, necessary to select the right club. Holes are among houses, yet you don't feel crowded by them. There is some water (fairway edges marked by flags) and enough bunkers to make you play smart golf. (It is not a bomb it off the tee design.)
The course is in excellent shape. With a dry summer, it has been watered well; the Bermuda grass is in excellent late-summer shape. They were in the process of dressing the greens with sand; yet when they completed a green, it was very playable with minimal impact of the sand that had been worked into the green.
Pace of play was good. My wife is a slow player; we let several groups play through and no group had to wait for shots.
Of the courses we played during our week in Myrtle Beach, MB National South Creek was the most enjoyable by far.
I loved this course!!! I was on vacation with my Family and decided to go golfing and was amazing at how beautiful it was!!! The layout of the course was my favorite and I would recommend anyone that is in this area on vacation to check it out!!! I will be back next year!!
The course was in good condition and was fun to play. Some interesting holes and the greens rolled well. We enjoyed our round and would definitely play again.
Myrtle Beach National
Played 36 at myrtle beach national with South Creek being first up. First class facility. Starts with bag drop. People were helpful and answered all questions. South Creek was a fun course, conditions were pristine. Tall pines, manicured rough , fast true greens. Rangers were out to keep pace up. A little waiting but they were on top of it. Ranger would stop and ask how it was going , how we were enjoying our round, etc. Nice touch. Played the West Course on a replay. A little shorter, obviously The easier of the 3 courses. Flawless fairways, boxes and greens. What else you need!?! Clubhouse has a neat full swinging snack bar with smiley people. And eating while surrounded by Arnold Palmer pictures and equipment!?! No brainer to play here, and already looking forward to next time!! Enjoy!!
Enjoyable for All Levels
Played 36 at Myrtle Beach National with the first 18 on South Creek. We were all impressed with the conditioning of the greens and how enjoyable the course was overall. It is a shorter track, but it's not without challenges. The holes allow opportunities for short, straight hitters as well as power players to succeed and make birdies. Overall, the course is a great value for the price and you can replay on the much more expensive King's North for a low rate.
Mb national southcreek
Had a fun time playing South Creek...course in good shape..greens were smooth and rolled with good pace. Kings North is obviously the gem of the property but this was a fun lil course. Lots of fun holes lots of par 4's under 400 yds requiring accuracy not distance....warning*** they run split tees...don't think a morning time will help you beat the hackers...u wait on them at the turn
Lot's of unique holes
Course is in excellent shape tee to greens. Greens are putting true & quick. Pace of play was 4hrs for our foursome. Nice collection of different holes.
Course was in excellent shape. Tee Boxes, Fairways & Greens were super. Lot's of character to this course. Good selection of Par 3's & Par 5's
South Creek...a gem.
Very nice layout; excellent condition; under 4 hour round; quick greens; best we played in MB
Good to return to Myrtle Beach National, Southcreek
I've played this course about 5 years ago and remember it a being challenging but fair. Nothing has really changed. Overall conditions were good considering the area had received 4+ inches of rain a couple of days before.
Greens was in excellent condition. Fairways nice cut and excellent as well. Staff was friendly and course had everything you could want.
A very nice experience
A cordial staff, with a well organized system. A wonderful round, even in the rain. I highly recommend it.
Beautiful conditions....very challenging.
Excellent value for money....beautifully maintained and quite challenging.
Course was in great shape
Was a single and paired up with 3 golfers from Germany. Only one spoke broken English but had a great time. Course was in great shape. The greens ran very true if you putted on the correct line. I would play here again.
very open course
The course was in good condition. They were remodeling the clubhouse but it was still open and all amenities were available. The greens we fast and well maintained.
Excellent all around experience!
I played this course in late May and it was great. The greens fees were incredible for the condition and layout ($44.00). A course like this would be over $75.00 in Massachusetts. The fairways were well maintained and the greens were great. The staff was extra friendly and let my 22 year old son join us as he was injured and could not play. Great track- would definately go back!
Danes in Myrtle Beach
Beautiful course, perfect weather.....
Wish I could play the other courses at MBN.
Hope to come back soon.....
Very nice course!
Played three courses while in myrtle and this was the best! Greens a tad slow but the rest of the course more than made up for it. Great value at $68 on golfnow.com.
