When you think of the Myrtle Beach golf course Man O War, you need to think of water. One wouldn’t imagine that a golf course with water on every hole would be the most fun and playable course of the three Mystical Golf complexes (Witch and Wizard are the other two), but the course designer Dan Maples was able to accomplish precisely that.
The condition of Man O War is what makes the course so enjoyable. Because of the shape of the rough and fairways – the course is playable for everyone and every skill level. The fairways are consistent and smooth, and because they aren’t super tight, you can pick the ball quickly. The rough is not real long – only a minor penalty will be had if you happen to find yourself in the long grass. You will be able to easily find your ball, which also keeps the speed of play at a good pace, reduces your frustration from a bad shot, and still ensures a fun round at this Myrtle Beach golf course, Man O War. If you play your round during the hot summer months when the bent grass greens need to be wet to be kept alive, be prepared for a slower green. Even with slow greens, they are fair, smooth, and offer plenty of breaks. If you’re looking for fast greens, play Man O War during the spring when not only are they fast, but they will look like a roller coaster.
The most memorable and beautiful feature of Man O War is the water visible on all holes. The only thing that you might notice in the appearance of this Myrtle Beach golf course is the lack of trees or elevation changes. This makes Man O War seem congested, and without those two things, the tee boxes seem too close with nothing to separate them from each other. This also makes those errant tee shots not so bad, and there won’t be a tree in your way so that you can go for the green, regardless of if you land in the rough or not. Just because this Myrtle Beach golf course, Man O War, doesn’t have tough rough, that doesn’t mean this course is easy or not a challenge. The back tee boxes make the course play around 7,000 yards – all of which have a minimal roll in the fairways, especially during the summer season, so even the longest hitters will have a challenge.
