DESCRIPTION
About MB National West

The West Course at Myrtle Beach National is a favorite course among tourists and locals. Many use the West Course as their first round in their golf trip to get ready for some of the more challenging courses on their itinerary. Myrtle Beach National West Course is a very well maintained Par 72 course playing just over 6,000 yards from the whites. If you’re hitting your second shots well, this course should play easy for you with all par 4’s playing less than 400 yds and all Par 5’s are reachable in two, making for some realistic eagle chances. The draw will be your best friend here as there are quite a few dogleg lefts. The challenge of the West Course is found on the greens. They slope back to front so hitting over the green will leave you little chance to stop the ball when scrambling.
The West Course at Myrtle Beach National features a traditional course layout with roomy fairways. Like it’s sister course, Kings North, the West Course doesn’t have any houses alongside the fairways. The well maintained Mini-Verde Bermuda Grass greens offer a true roll, and make good scores attainable for any golfer’s skill level.

"Course is in very good shape tee to green. Some of the best kept bunkers in MB. Pace of play was outstanding. Staff always very nice. Not overly difficult course but enough challenges to make it interesting. Good warm up course to start you golf vacation or just a nice place to play if you live here. Holes 15 thru 18 are nice finishing holes. Recommend playing here."

"Tee Boxes & Fairways are in excellent shape. Greens have recently aerified but still putted very true & fast. Staff were very friendly & seemed concerned because of the heat. Kept reminding us to drink plenty of fluids. Pace of play was good 4hrs 10mins with foursome & extreme heat"

"Enjoyed playing this course, it is open and fairly easy with no water. Good starting course to get warmed up. Should have played the back tees or hit 3-wood of the tee as there were many dogleg holes where a 240yd drive means your through the fairway. Greens were decent and rolled well but had bare spots. We were early for our tee time but were hurried to play with the other twosome who was even earlier than us. I would play this again as a warm-up course, but the King's North course is a much more challenging layout but not in any better condition than the West course."

"Best course we played all week. Greens and fairways in great shape. Played with two guys from Myrtle Beach area who were a great help. Staff in pro shop as well as greeters were excellent. Would recommend this course to anybody. Great course for men and women very fair. Can't comment on grill since we didn't eat here but the club house is beautiful and very well kept."

"The easiest of the 3 courses at Myrtle Beach National is a really enjoyable course. There is a nice mix of easier holes and challenging holes that makes West playable by all types of players. It has the least amount of water in play of the 3 courses at MBN. Recommended for all."

"Played in the afternoon after an all-morning rain. Even with the wet, the course was in excellent conditions and fun to play. Different set-up than that the North course, the West course served up enough challenges, especially having traveled over 7 hours that day to play."

"I prefer this layout vs SouthCreek. Both were in great shape & a good value for the $$$$. I will definitely play the West Course again. King's is the superior course here, but for the money you can't go wrong with any of the 3. Busy facility, but conditions were very good, especially considering the weather that Myrtle had recently seen. Good practice area. Staff friendly enough."

"Always in good shape and the staff is always nice to deal with. They were doing a lot of work to the second hole with heavy equipment which was making a mess but other than that the course was in good shape. It's a relatively short course and the rating is quite low but it's a fun course."
