Come Test Your Luck on the Gambler

King’s North at Myrtle Beach National is a must play on your next golf trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This is one of my all time favorite golf courses because it gives you so many options for risk/reward golf shots in a beautiful setting.

Home of the famous island green, featuring bunkers in the shape of “S” and “C” known as the South Carolina hole. Number 18, a 464 yard par four is framed by 42 individual bunkers. The most memorable hole on the course is the par 5 “Gambler.” On the tee box you are forced to make a decision to go for the island fairway and take a crack at the green in two or take the conventional route around the water.

For all you northerners out there who love their bent grass greens you are in luck as all three courses at Myrtle Beach National have the true rolling bent greens. Give the staff of Golf Zoo a call at 800.777.7650 and one of our experienced Golf Vacation Specialists will help you put together your dream golf vacation.

Play all day with breakfast and lunch included!

World Golf Village - St. Augustine, Florida -

If you like to play more than 18 holes in a day and have 2 meals included with it - then I have the place for you; the resort courses at World Golf Village -Slammer and the Squire, King and the Bear. These are two great golf facilities at one great property. During the months of July 1 through September 30, you can play all day with two meals. The Slammer and the Squire was designed by Bobby Weed with Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen as consultants. The King and the Bear is the only course in the US designed by Palmer and Nicklaus. A golfer can play all day with 2 meals for around $133 per day. The second round is not booked in advance, but day of play - 2 courses to choose from.

The only issues are summer aeration: King and the Bear (8/22 - 8/24), Slammer and the Squire (9/5 - 9/7). It looks like July 1 through August 21 would be perfect.

You have 4 different lodging options at the facility - Comfort Inn & Suites, Laterra Resort and Spa, WGV Renaissance Resort, and the Villa's at WGV. This package is for the diehard golfer that can deal with the heat, a lot of golf and a full belly. If this package interests you, please call 888.333.6103 to discuss.
