Man-O-War's bent grass greens might well be the best in Myrtle Beach. They roll firm and true. We play the three Mystical Golf courses every spring. It's the best deal in Myrtle Beach!

I've been going to Myrtle Beach for 20+ years and if there's a group of courses that makes golfers feel more welcome than the Mystical Golf trio (The Wizard, The Witch and Man O' War) I've yet to see it. What a place!

Because it has water in so many holes, the pace of play can come to a crawl- Over all the staff was friendly enough but not great. The course is in good condition and the greens although on the slow side they do run true . The ninth hole is the signature hole and it is very memorable , unfortunately the rest of the course seemed just ok. The course is very open and you can use your driver plenty, but on days with winds over 10 mph it does play long.For the winter price of 40-50 dollars it was a good deal as it also included lunch and two beers.

Man O War always comes through. The design is exceptional. There are a lot of courses in Myrtle that demand much higher rates for less of an experience. Expect water and a number of islands but they are fair. The opening and ending par 5's are birdie opportunities.The back nine is a blast.

Came to Myrtle Beach and someone recommended this course. After playing a previous course this was a nice surprise. There is obviously alot of water on the course but it is not too demanding on tee shots. It provides a challenge but is very fair. You are more likely to get in trouble with a bunker on a drive. The water comes more into play when attacking the greens. Unfortunately when I played it had rained a ton the day before so the greens were very soft. This caused some issues with divot repair spots and spike marks but other than that the greens were smooth. Green pace was not extremely fast.

Played Man O" War on a perfect 75-degree South Carolina day. The conditions of this course were a 9.5 on a scale of one to 10.

The lake that comes into play on 14 out of 18 holes was so still you'd think you could walk on water. Between the lake, the conditions, and the pine trees, it felt like I was playing in a postcard setting.

If you make a point of planning your tee shot, you should be able to shoot a good score. Also enjoyed having a cold one after the round in the clubhouse that sits on stilts overlooking the lake.

Definitely would recommend Man O' War if you're vacationing in Myrtle Beach.

Pretty good value for the $$$ with sandwich and a couple beers included. Course itself OK. Fairways pretty nice but greens, while challenging with few straight putts, pretty beat up with folks not repairing the ball marks. Pace was VERY
slow front 9 (2+30) but picked up a bit on back with the Marshall's assist. Middle of the pack for MB courses.

The course was in good shape but showed some signs from being the end of summer and some heavy play. The course layout was not as difficult as past reviews had made me expect. If you have a little bit of length and can keep it out of the water a good score is very attainable. Rough was rather short and easily played from.
