If you haven't play this course you need to know the first 9 are a distance from the club house. We were told the rest room were out of order and were not getting fixed. The cart path are much to be desired.

I've played this course 6 times over the years. It's been my favorite course in Myrtle. This year was different. They have completely lost 2 greens. Don't like rolling my putts on dirt. Listen, I know that golf is in a bad place, that no one is spending any money on course maintenance. At the same time I don't want to spend $130 on a round of golf to get pristine conditions. Am I asking too much to get a good course for $70. In this case I guess I was.

Tee Boxes, Fairways are in excellent shape. There are a couple of greens that are not in great shape but very playable. Pace of play was good. The starter brought us out cold wet towels during the round due to the extreme heat. *** NICE TOUCH ***

Lucky enough to live here. Conditions of greens and fairways are looking very good with Fall coming. Man O War is one of those courses that if you play it often will make you feel and perform five shots better at most courses. Unless you are a very heavy hitter the par 4 second shots will test you. The 5's are reachable in reg., Water comes into play at inconvenient times but that makes it fun. Slope from the whites is 130 and it shows. You can pay a lot more around Myrtle and get much less. Next door is The Wizard sister course.

Someone moved a lot of dirt around to pull Links style off in Myrtle Beach. My day was a windy one. Fairways and Greens are nice. Moving into fall you expect that here. Open and rolling, a relaxing round.Length from whites not a stress.Several elevated greens. Do not become to complacent near the end as 17 and 18 will wake you up with their island greens. Play the Wizard and warm up for Man O War next door.

Fun course that doesn't play terribly long. Rough is kept rather short and very easy to play from. The challenging elements are there but are far enough away to be avoided easily with a little accuracy. This course like Man O War showed some signs of heavy play throughout the summer so the course did show some signs of wear in the fairways, rough, and greens.

Ok, i'll say it early, the Wizard is magical. One of the best courses I've played in the Myrtle area. Went with my buddies for a weekend trip, really glad to play this links style course. Didn't expect to find a links layout in the area, but boy what a gem. Great elevation changes to it as well, has to be the highlight. Course was in great shape, everyone is friendly, it's golf as it should be. Check it out!

This course is a must-play for me every trip to MB because of how well it replicates the feel of a classic links course. The deep bunkers and dramatic elevation changes will definitely make you think your way around the course, but also help you become immersed in the old world golf experience. The castle-style clubhouse also helps with that!

and be wary near the water for alligators" When the starter tells you this, don't go looking for wayward shots.Knowing where to hit the ball here is a plus as there are some hidden hazards on some holes. Thought the course was well suited for my game. Short par 4's, reachable 5's and mid-iron 3's. Wasn't in the greatest of shape though. I'd play it again, but there are others that I'd try first.
