MBN – West Course
MBN – West Course
Go west, golfers, to the West Course at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club, where scenic adventure and the richest treasures in challenges await at every turn.
Open in 1973, the West Course is a classic Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane combined design that winds through a forest of Carolina pines, doglegs, fairway bunkers and natural hazards. At a par 72 and 6,866 yards, the West Course, however, is also considered forgiving on its wide fairways and spacious greens.
The public course alludes to a private club feel, which is one of countless reasons Golf Digest ranked the West Course 4.5 stars in “Places to Play” in 2010.

MBN is an older course in the area. Having played here some 20 years ago I was eager to see what I had forgotten.
First off the entrance to the golf course off of the main highway is odd as it connects onto a side street before reaching the main road to the golf course. This "false entrance" was once impressive but now it looks neglected. The main road to the clubhouse winds through a nice residential neighbourhood.
When you arrive at the course it's clubhouse is impressive in size but does look a bit tired on the outside. The pro shop is large, well stocked and the staff were friendly.
The day we played the west course was completely vacant possibly the result of warmer than normal weather and the fact that it was Mother's Day. The starter was chatty and offered sugestions on sister courses to play.
This course has very wide and level fairways lined with large pines throughout. Precision off the tee is not necessary and in many spots the tees and parts of the fairways were "baked". The greens were green and receptive but many were pot marked. Almost all of the greens are slanted in one direction or another so choosing the right line and pace is needed in order to get your first put in the hole. This course has a number of parallel holes but doesn't not wind amongst the neighbourhood homes. Overall the course layout is good however you can tell this course is aged and has not been updated (I.e. Washrooms dated, sand trap rakes were damaged, and cart paths were uneven and spotty). We paid $40 to play on a Sunday afternoon and finished in just over 3 hours so not complaining.
Overall I'd say this course is well priced for what you get. However, with the name "Palmer" associated to it one would expect a bit more TLC.
Course was in excellent condition for being late winter. Played long because off the rain the night before. Highly recommend this course.
Starter wasn't at the 1st tee,when he arrived he yelled at several of us to back up and get out of the way so he could get us in order. Treated us like children when he was not any where to be found. Everyone else in pro shop and on the course were wonderful
For the beginning of March, the course was in great condition and played well. No significant delays on the course and a pleasant round.
The course was in overall great shape! I hit a nice drsw on a hole that required a draw & I executed it to perfection! Still made only a net bogey gross par.
MBN WEST is a very playable course. The fairways are wide when they need to be, the greens are receptive and hold the ball on approach shots. We really enjoyed our round.
Three 18 handicappers shot 87, 92, and 93. Played white tees. Not a long course from whites. Course in nice shape despite on and off rain for a week. Wide fairways. Water not much of a factor. Trees on most holes but easy to punch out of as there is nothing but pine needles to hit off of when in trees. All in all a very nice and relatively easy course for a bunch of average golfers.
