Man O’ War

Man O’ War Golf Club has remained in the upper echelon of Myrtle Beach golf courses. Man O’ War recently received an overall rating of 8.6 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider. The course has also earned a prestigious four-star rating from Golf Digest. But through all of that, it’s originality is something no golfer will forget. Built around a 100-pluss acre lake, this Dan Maples design has swallowed its fair share of golf balls. But for the most part, the prepared and patient can maneuver it while enjoying its originality.

Opened in 1996, Man O’ War includes water on 16 of its 18 holes. That includes back-to-back island greens on Nos. 14 and 15 – said by Sports Illustrated to possibly be the game’s only such occurrence. If you’re lucky enough to stay dry, you still have to worry about the very fast bentgrass greens – which can be blamed for nearly as many balls in the drink as the tee shots. Before golfers reach that unique double, though, they also have to contend with No. 9. The 433-yard par 4 is an island hole, not simply a green. From the tee box, players must hit a straight shot onto a secondary island, connected to the first only by an elevated cart path. The approach then requires a near-perfect shot to stay out of sand. Of course, it wouldn’t be Man O ‘War without more water coming into play. Most consider this another par 5 for the course because of its propensity for bogeys. And that’s just the seventh-hardest hole on the course.

Located in the Carolina Forest area of the Grand Strand, Man O’War is just off U.S. 501, a major thoroughfare in and out of the heart of Myrtle Beach. It also attracts plenty of visitors, especially ones who fly into town and spot all that water from overhead.

This could be the best course, hands-down, i've ever played in the Myrtle Beach area. SO much good going on there, variety of shots, plenty of water hazards to keep you on your toes, and immaculate conditions. Was our last stop on our buddies trip and we truly saved the best for last. A must play for anyone visiting, or heck living, in the area!

Loved everything about this course - from customer service to course layout. Must play in Myrtle.

Man-O-War is flat out a real golfer's layout by Dan Maples. Although there is water on every hole, there is plenty of room in the well-maintained fairways. The greens run smooth, but are tricky to putt. We play this course every year on our annual pilgrimage to Myrtle Beach. Really a fine golf course. Cheeseburgers are great in the clubhouse as well!

Course in great condition. Clubhouse not so much.

It had been about 10 years since I last played Man O' War, and it really hasn't changed. Still a solid course in great condition and fun to play. I love the layout and the open feel. There's lots of water but I never felt like I couldn't tee it up and bomb it. This course is a must play for buddy golf trips. It caters to players of all handicaps. Greens were in pretty good condition but there were some random patches of rot; nothing to keep me from coming back. My biggest complaint wasn't with the course, but with my attempt to get back to my hotel on the beach due to gridlocked traffic at Carolina Forest Rd and 501. I should have expected it on 4th of July weekend. Take this into account when booking your tee time.

Part of Mystical Golf's Play 3 courses Summer special. Was a little leery of the course because of the water in play on many holes, but found the layout to be very good and very fair. If you kept the ball in the middle, you could score and I did. Enjoyed the round. Greens were excellent, fairways very good, and rough was fair. Paired up with a single in our group and had a great time. Cool, wet towels were provided by the staff throughout the round. Would play this course again anytime. Conveniently located across the water from The Wizard.
