Course is in terrible condition.

The title says it all. The course was in terrible condition because of the winter weather. 3 greens where being re-sodded during our round and the maintenance crew would not even move off the greens while our group hit. This may have been a nice course at one time but every green was half-dead. I would not waste your money on this course until it recovers.

Peace and Gators

The rate is Local. The Witch is worth playing for a number of reasons. This is a South Carolina nature trail. No houses, narrow fairways. You will spend time just touring and taking photos. Wildlife is everywhere. If you go into the woods dont enter very deeply.The course is challanging. It was designed to reduce flood damage to greens and tees so most holes have elevation changes. Best played in absence of recent rain.

Pretty course but slow play!

The people in the pro shop were not very friendly. The first ladies Tee box had a big hole in it, no grass and was really lumpy! The pace of play was extremely slow with 3 and 4 groups on every hole... #6 we had 3 groups on the teenox and one in the fairway!

No marshals on the course to ensure a better pace.

The course is beautiful the greens are very slow. If you dont like a 51/2 to 6 hour round then this is not the course for You.

Great Course

The witch is awesome, its on a nature preserve and its as pretty a course as you can find in the area. Its 15-20 minutes from Myrtle and worth it to go test yourself. Friendly staff, great snack bar and course was in fantastic shape.

Nothing special

This was our practice round for our recent buddies trip. I’d sum it up as “meh.” Layout was alright, mostly tree-lined. Conditions were okay tee to green, but once on the greens there was considerable winter kill, which turned out to be the case with all but one of the courses we played (TPC). Clubhouse seemed “worn out” — nothing REALLY bad, just kinda tired. Biggest “negative” for me was the cost — $65 was too much for the quality of everything. Yes, hot dogs/chips/beers came included but it was still too much money IMO.

Wicked

Course is challenging. Back nine winds through the trees slightly elevated areas. Front nine winds down the the boggy marshy areas. Saw a few gators on front nine. Front nine seems to have been damaged somewhat from the hurricane in 2016. But is recovering nicely. Still wet in areas though.

The Witch Wasn't Wicked

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.

V Cool.. V Fun

We played this in early June as part of the Mystical Deal... great package.

Being from up North, the course style was different to us. I liked that every hole on the front was almost entirely secluded. Saw some gators.

I really enjoy courses with very diverse front and backs, and this was just that.

Staff was extremely friendly... but coming from Philly we're not tough to impress...

Really had a blast here and looking forward to returning.

DON'T DO IT !

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.

Not worth the money

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!!!

Deserves Six Stars

The Witch is an unbeatable combo of great golf, exceptional value and the most welcoming vibe I've ever experienced at a daily fee course. The type of place you want to play over and over and over.

What a joke!!!

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!!

Plush track

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....

Miles of Bridges

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.

Attack of the bugs

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.

The Witch is in great condition!

Played The Witch last week while in Myrtle Beach, it was in great condition. The greens are rolling fantastically. Love that swamp on the front 9. Nothing else like it in the game.

Fourth of July Fun

Visited Myrtle Beach for the Fourth of July weekend and had to make a return visit to one of my favorite courses on the Grand Strand. The course was in great shape, and the staff was especially friendly when it came to finding the right hat for a hot day.
