Man O’ War

8.8 Read Reviews
Kids Play Free Singles Welcome Ranked TOP 25 in Golf Insider!

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.

Course was in great shape.

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.

Layout, green complexes,starters are incredibly nice. Watch out for the gnats.

The course was nice but the pace of the game was slow. We were behind a threesome and they were holding up the line. No ranger or marshal came out to enforce them to speed up or let us pass. After the 5 hole we just pass them. After we pass them, we had a great time.

Nice layout.

Mid handicappers from the uk. We were looking forward to this course after some great hype and reviews. We were so disappointed when we arrived to find that the tee time had slipped by one hour and then suffer a 6 hour round due to the club double booking and using the course as a cash cow rather than a golf course. Surprisingly the greens were the main challenge on the course rather than the water hazards. Pay close attention to the pin positions on these massive undulating greens as if you are on the wrong side of the green you will do well to 3 put.

Lots of water, very little elevation change, a few blind shots. Not overly difficult. Greens a bit slow, but rolled well.
