Witch Golf Club
Myrtle Beach is home to a Witch that has been casting a spell on golfers for years, and the reasons are many.
The Witch Golf Links offers one of the Myrtle Beach's most interesting and underrated golfing experiences. The front nine plays through a cypress swamp, bringing golfers on a tour of the Lowcountry. Players get an up-close look at part of the area’s natural habitat they rarely see, as 4,000 feet of bridges traverse the swamp.
The back nine moves from the Lowcountry to something that feels more like mountain golf. The 16th, 17th and 18th holes feature uncommon natural elevation that presents a different challenge, invigorating golfers as they near the end of the day.
Among the best holes at the 4 ½-star course is the par-4 9th, where players say goodbye to the swamp with a forced carries off the tee and on the approach. It’s not a long hole, playing just 376 yards from the tips, but it’s fraught with peril.
The 18th is a par 4 that plays 390 yards with a forced carry off the tees and a fairway that cants from right to left. With the hole’s pristine Bermuda grass green, flanked by three bunkers, resting in the shadow of the clubhouse, it’s a memorable finish.
