MAN O WAR GOLF CLUB (843-236-8000)
Myrtle Beach golf course review
Man O War is a 4 star rated (Golf Digest) Dan Maples championship design that sits adjacent to the Wizard Golf Club in North Conway just 4 miles west of the Intracoastal Waterway. The property is part of the Mystical Golf Group which also includes the adjacent Man O War and nearby Wizard Golf Clubs. Stay and play packages are available through the courses website (link at top of this page)
The Clubhouse on property features a pro shop, restaurant and snack bar with hot and cold sandwiches, beverages and beer. Practice facilities include a grass range, short game area plus putting green. The property sits alongside a 100-acre lake, and there is water in some shape or form on each and every hole!
There are 4 sets of tees designed to provide opportunities for golfers of all skill levels to enjoy a round here. The tips measure 6967 yards and play to a slope of 141. Alternate sets measure 6402 yards/130 slope, 5729 yards with a 120 slope and 5033 yards with a slope of from the forward tees. This is a very challenging round of golf from the tips, but is very player friendly from the 3 remaining sets. .
There are 59 nicely conditioned sand bunkers situated along the landing zones on the gently rolling fairways or greenside. The highlight for many golfers will be the back to back island green complexes on the par three 17th and par five 18th. There are other challenges along the way but these finishing holes can make or break a round - and certainly are what many golfers will remember. The many bridges and wood retaining walls also provide aesthetic beauty.
The bent grass greens are mildly sloping and a joy to put on - land in regulation and most of the hard work is done. Pay attention to the pin placement chart on the golf carts to see which part of the putting surface you want to approach. There are also 100, 150 and 200 yardage markers on the par fours and fives.
This is a beautiful design, a good value for the area and highly recommended by this website! For more info, visit our page for the course with direct link to their website by clicking here.
