Dan Maples created a beauty when designing this course, with 500 acres of pristine wetlands and thick pine forests providing a challenge for golfers who venture too far off the fairways. Recognized by Golf Digest with 4.5 stars in its “Places to Play Guide,” The Sun News has also honored it as the “Best Golf Course for the Money” and a finalist for best Myrtle Beach golf course. The signature hole is No. 9 – a 373-yard par 4 that head pro Graham Williams claims is “The Witch in a nutshell: not particularly long but very challenging.”
The Witch Golf Club has recently earned an overall rating of 8.4 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for the course layout, friendly staff, and the diverse wildlife the course offers.

They were able to get us out as soon as we got there (20 minutes early) and they gave us a lunch coupon. There are no houses on this course, which is nice, but you don't want to go off the fairway.

We had a group of 12 playing 2 rounds on Saturday, when we got there I overheard the pro shop attendant tell the other employee how pissed off he was about the way the sister course Wizard was talking about the Witches course. I didn't know what to think until we got out there and they were right, the course was supposed to be the best of the 3 courses (Man-o-War, Witch and Wizard) but as we found out the hard way it was by far the worst and of all the courses I have played over the years it was the bottom of the list!! Will never play there again!!

Friendly staff. Nice pace of play. Greens were a little sparse.

Greens in very bad shape.... Green fees to high for the greens to be in bad shape.....

This course had a beautiful layout with wild areas between almost every hole and lots of natural beauty. Fairways were in good shape, but unfortunately the greens ruined the whole experience. They were mostly dirt and hard as a rock. It was literally like putting on cement. The bagboy said they were in great shape a week earlier but the rain killed them. This course should NOT be played until the grass comes back (if it ever does). I will never be back again.

We played The Witch on our free day on our 2 week trip for 16 golfers. 4 of us braved Tropical Storm Ana and were very happy we did. We were sent out on the 10th and this was a bonus as whilst the back nine is a good nine in its own right, the front nine is one of the best front nines I have played anywhere. No houses, no holes running alongside each other, just wilderness and very good if not great holes on an unheralded course. Loved every minute of the round and will play again if I ever return to MB.

Was looking forward to playing the Witch, was very extremely disappointed. The greens were not playable. They were totally baked. But after speaking with an employee they said they reseeded the greens but when you're putting on sand it's really not enjoyable. They should have notified us about the playing conditions of the greens. It's not worth paying full price. A discount would have been nice. Snack bar charged 6 dollars for a ham and cheese sandwich that felt like it was 3 days old. After the round was over we spoke with the clubhouse employee about the playing conditions they responded with an OK. Was planning on doing replay; save your money.

We always enjoy the Witch. A couple of greens were thin on grass but the greens crew did an amazing job as they still rolled true & faster than most MB courses on this trip. We were able to ride on the fairways even though it had rained heavily the day before. The rough was by far the toughest we played all week, & it cost me at least 4 strokes, but IMO it made things all that much more FUN!!!! We did a replay in the afternoon, & they sent us to #1 tee for our tee time & we had to watch 4 other groups tee off before us (looks like they crammed too many on the same tee, but for $30 we didn't complain). Lady in the pro shop in the afternoon looked to be overwhelmed dealing with the replay players, & taking the cash. As a result she was not the friendliest. Pro shop well stocked for attire, & good practice area. Bag drop guys did a good job. This is a course we play on every trip now. Good value for the money, & a course you can score on. Just don't be hitting your ball too crooked.

Sand traps and cart paths need improving.

This is a "feel good" course because it plays easy. I enjoy this course after playing some of the tougher courses in Myrtle. There are few trees in play and the water can be avoided. The greens were a little furry but still playable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will return when my game needs a pick me up.
