Played the morning after a torrential downpour so the course was soaked, car path only. I found the front much tougher than the back with a few long 4's. All the 5's were 3 shot holes for me with a couple doglegs to manage.The par 3's were all mid-iron for me which is muy bueno! Greens were punched a week ago but they weren't terrible. The course requires some shot making and there are some carries over marshes. I found the layout to be nice. There's gators out here so be careful by the water and bring some bug spray or get a dryer sheet(had heard about this on line somewhere and I'll be damned it works!) from the pro shop. i'd come back. Fun course to play.

I am group leader of a group of 20-25 golfers that come to Myrtle Beach every year for a four to five round stay and play package. After continuously hearing how great "The Witch" is we decided to get the Mystical package which include Man O War and The Wizard.

The Witch is a good layout, the course, is in bad shape which all the employees blamed on the grass transition from winter to spring etc. The cart path and I mean all of it is terrible, absolutely , all of their cart bridges are falling apart. The clubhouse hasn't seen a paintbrush/carpet since being built I'll bet. It has trees and plants growing out of the gutters !!! The small outdoor deck has outdoor carpet, it was torn everywhere and was blown up against the seating because it is no longer glued down. We had to pull it off to sit down. Nice staff, a real dump !!! The Wizard & Man O' War much better courses.(fairways and greens) Man O' War played twice I think 4 traps might have been raked, grounds crew dragging water hoses on the green while we waited in the fairway. All the cart bridges falling apart patched with plywood. Beautiful views from the Wizard and Man O' War Clubhouses but zero outdoor deck or seating, no liquor license at any of the three just beer. Every clubhouse has carpet that smells, stained, holes etc. Couldn't sit in the Wizard after our round 77 degrees and they had no windows open, no handles on the windows. Like a greenhouse with musty carpet. At every one the 19th hole is virtually non existent or a hole in the wall !!!

Windsor Green Villas with Mystical package. Dated worn carpet in all. Shower didn't work in mine on day 1. Repair man removes washer from kitchen sink to fix shower and then sink leaks all over the counter. Change the name to The Mythical Golf Package !!!!! Very nice staff, villas were convenient to restaurants/ bars. Not many good things to say.

Just finished playing the Witch. This used to be a favorite. But for a $70 plus tax greens fee you'd get more value for your money at many other courses which are in much better shape. The cart paths are all tore up, stairs up to tee boxes are a accident waiting to happen, tee boxes are poorly mowed, traps are showing the fabric . I will not play this course or recommend it again unless they lower the greens fee by at least $25. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

How can you open a course with 9 holes flooded and we never get told by anyone. We had played 4 courses prior to this and yes we understand about debris, cart path only, etc after a very bad hurricane. But come on-staff couldn't care less-play the same nine twice or get a rain check? Will never be back-greedy owners must need their Fall $$$ and couldn't care less about customer service. So long for good Witch!!

For this time of year we were amazed by how green and plush the conditions were.

Had to cancel an earlier tee time at another course(rain) My two sons (20) and (17) and I, we're literally the only group on the course at 1:30 PM. I have never experienced that. The front nine is one of the most enjoyable in Myrtle Beach. I have played well over 25 courses, including The Wizard and Man O War. Not as much water as I expected. # 9 was a great dog-leg left over a marsh. 18 was a great finishing hole as well(missed a 10 footer for Birdie)

I will be back. Mainly a morning player but if the course is open like this may work in a PM again....

Located in the middle of a swamp this course is unique in that way. This course has more bridges and wetlands down the sides of many fairways that I have ever seen.. The fairways are wide though and the greens large and the conditions are usually good. This is one of the few courses that allows coolers so pack a few beers, don't forget your bug spray and have a truly unique golf experience on the strand.

This course is laid out nicely. Our foursome enjoyed the course. However, there are some weird mosquito/bee type insects that are relentless. Being in the low country area of South Carolina they were unavoidable (according to some locals). My foursome used all the routine insect repellents and they did not help 1 bit.

Overall great course. If they can get rid of the bugs it would be even better.

First time playing in MB. For 70 bucks I didn't know what to expect after paying True Blue and paying $154 and being somewhat underwhelmed. I was extremely happy with this course, great layout, friendly staff, cool nature with gators and snakes. Really enjoyed the layout and quite a challenge from the Tips. The greens weren't the prettiest but they were quick and true. Would definitely recommend playing here excited to try the other 2 courses.

This is a very nice golf course that always seems to be in good condition. I spend about a month in Jan-Feb in the area and play about 10-15 rounds of golf. Though this is one of the less expensive venues I play, the condition is better than a lot of others in the area. This year, although it was very wet, the course was in great shape and the greens were the best that I played. It proves that just because its wintertime it doesn't mean that the greens must be in bad shape. They obviously have a great greenskeeper who takes pride in his craft! Congratulations!

After reading past reviews of this course I was a little apprehensive. Being told by the starter to watch for gators and snakes is always a good sign. The course was in nearly perfect shape. Even the day after Labor Day it showed very little signs of play or impact from the weather. The greens were immaculate and rolled extremely fast and were breaking very hard. This course is absolutely beautiful and out of the three course(Man o War, and the Wizard) this would be the one I would recommend the most.
