The Wizard Golf Club (843) 236-9393
Myrtle Beach golf course review
The Wizard is a Dan Maples championship design that sits adjacent to the Man O War 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 Witch Golf Clubs. Stay and play packages are available through the courses website (link at top of this page)
The one of a kind Stone Castle Clubhouse on property features a pro shop, restaurant and snack bar with hot and cold sandwiches, beverages, and beer and wine. Rental clubs and lessons are available. Practice facilities include a grass range, and a putting green.
There are 4 sets of tees designed to provide opportunities for golfers of all skill levels to enjoy a round here. The tips measure 6721 yards and play to a slope of 129. Alternate sets measure 6138 yards/ 121 slope, 5547 yards with a 108 slope and 4972 yards with a slope of 121 for women from the forward tees. This is a player friendly links style layout with wide landing zones off the tees.
One and a half million cubic yards of earth were moved to form The Wizard's intriguing landscape of Rolling Hills that Borders 100 lakes shared with Man O 'War. The plantings on the berms and mounds include over 800 species of plants, flowers, and ornamental grasses which are left uncut during peak season. There are 54 nicely conditioned sand bunkers situated along the landing zones on the gently rolling fairways or greenside. Water comes into play on 14 holes including the par three 17th, which features an island green.
Off the tees, there are wide fairways surrounded by wild grasses along a rolling, mounded terrain. The front of the greens are open for approach with bunkers and mounding mostly off to the side. The penn G2 grass greens are mildly sloping, mostly from back to front. The course is marked with yardages to center green from 100, 150, and 200 yards. Pin placement charts are included on the carts providing front, middle or back hole positions.
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.
