Located just off U.S. 544 in Conway, The Witch Golf Club is a short drive from Myrtle Beach and easily accessible from nearly any portion of South Carolina’s Grand Strand.
The course measures in at 6,798 yards from the back tees. It’s not exactly a formidable distance for big hitters, and it becomes even more playable from the whites, which check in just shy of 6,300 yards. As for a signature hole? The Witch boasts three. The 574-yard No. 5 isn’t quite the longest hole on the course; that distinction belongs to the eye-popping 599-yard No. 8. However, you’re going to appreciate every bit of the course’s notoriously wide fairways if you muscle up too much. The par-3 No. 7 is also included in that signature category. Like the other holes on the front nine, it is affected heavily by the natural wetlands that inhabited the area prior to Dan Maples designing and opening the course in 1989. The back nine starts you off right with a 390-yard par 4. However, it crescendos to No. 17, the third extraordinary hole on the course. The par-3, 177 yarder is already picturesque, even before considering the wildlife. The course is home to alligators, wild turkeys and plenty more species that call this preserve home.
The Witch Golf Club recently received a rating of 8.0 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider. It received even higher marks for the on-course aspects – tees, fairways and greens – as well as the staff. The 500-acre, house-free track of land has also been honored as a 4.5 stars course and “Most Underrated Course in Myrtle Beach” from Golf Digest and was named a “Must-Play Myrtle Beach Course” and “Best Bargain” by Golf.com and Sports Illustrated. Often overlooked because of its location outside of Myrtle Beach city limits, The Witch has more than made up for it.
Staff were great. Course was in great shape overall. One or two wet holes. Wonderful day to play. Alligators sunning themselves was most interesting.
Course is over seeded well. Greens are in good shape. I find that through the years of playing this course that the front nine is always very wet. Driving range is a little far from the club house and you can't take carts there. For a par 71 course, I wish they had a set of tees that was set to around 6000 yards. Too many of the Green (Senior) tees are set with the ladies tees. This was on 8 of 13 holes that were not par 3's. Finally, cart paths are in serious need of repair. It's a rough ride about the course.
Starters were excellent. Some damage to course from hurricane. Food in Grill was awful!
We were not told only 9 holes were open and course in pretty rough shape since the hurricane.
Day got started poorly as the person in charge added a group in front of us on the 10th tee (our starting hole) When I asked why, I was told it wouldn't slow us down. I protested this and we were moved to tee number one. We played behind a group of women for the first few holes and they let us through. When we got around to the backside, there were 3 groups on ten tee. They then rerouted us to start on hole 13 and we finished our round on hole 12. The course was fine, but not up to my expectations from playing it previously. I will look for other options on my frequent visits to the MB area.
Some of the tees showed the stress of summer heat but course overall in excellent shape. Very quiet as no houses, hi ways through much of the course, just you and nature with a good mix of hole designs and shot requirements. Will definitely return.
The greens were rolling great! It wasn't our first time playing here and it definitely won't be the last. You won't be disappointed. Any handicap golfer would be challenged. The views and wildlife are an added benefit.
Very nice course, but was really tough that day.
this was the 4th course we played on this trip really enjoyed the course was in great shape
This is a must play course when you visit the area. Kudos to the turf crew as they keep this one in immaculate shape (tee boxes, fairways and greens). I played a few courses last week and this is by far the best one!
Beautiful course. Great condition. Watch out for the gators.
Nice and Green.
Course is in outstanding shape, fairways & greens are perfect. Cart paths need some work. Staff was very friendly & accommodating. Saw 6 gators on the course. 2 of them were very rather LARGE. Must play.
Liked the layout and scenery. Very pretty course. Wildlife wasn't bad either.
When we got to the course, we were told the front nine was closed because of flooding. We played the back twice, enjoyed it. Loved the course layout, and the staff did a great job since only nine holes were open. They made sure are pace of play was good and had us play through a group when we made the turn, so there was no back up on the turn. I would definitely go back here.
Staff were very friendly. Course is a hidden gem! Beautiful layout! Everything was well maintained. First time playing the course and will definitely return as often as I can.
Course was very wet due to recent rains. Not much you can do about that.
Absolutely love the course layout. Very challenging and unique. Greens were good, but a little on the slow side. The only thing I was not impressed by was some of the tee boxes were almost down to just dirt. Other than that I really enjoyed the course. The staff was courteous, and helpful. No other place like it for the front 9. South Carolina swamp land at its best with a golf course running through it!
Unique layout and some very challenging holes. Some of the tees and greens exposed to the sun were rough, but overall very good shape.
Fairways and greens were in very good shape. The tee boxes on a couple holes were in bad shape with little grass, seems they should take out some trees to let in the sun shine. Anyway, I have always liked the layout and again the greens were nice.
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!!
Greens in very bad shape.... Green fees to high for the greens to be in bad shape.....
Friendly staff. Nice pace of play. Greens were a little sparse.
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.
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.
Had no tee time but worked us in, on Sunday afternoon. Great layout, greens need more coverage with winter rye. Worth the greens fee! Only complaint, a live cat was laying in the pro shop and my girlfriend is allergic to cats. Could not return to the clubhouse the rest of the day.
Great course. We were rained out on Sunday but the staff rescheduled us for the next day. Conditions on the course were very wet and soupy. Will be back to play the course and hope for better weather. I really enjoyed the complimentary 2 hotdogs and 2 beers.
Very good especially for the season
Greens were punched and lots of sand. The fairways were in awesome condition. The employees were really nice.
Superb playing conditions. Fairways & Greens were impeccable. Very slow play speed though, no ranger. 18 holes took little over 6 hours, got stuck behind an elderly foursome.
Fairways and greens where in very good condition for the time of the year. Unfortunately short game was off a bit.We were a bit surprise to see how many alligators and wild turkeys there was.Overall will definitely come back for another round.Thank's for the great hospitality and the great golf course.
1st time i have played this course and the greens where not as good but everything else was great
I hate to complain, but when we arrived we were told that the front 9 was flooded and we had options. We could play the back 9 twice or switch to one of the other courses. We thought about it and decided to stay put. That was a mistake. The greens hardly had any grass on them. They were way too sandy and in very poor condition. Most of the tee boxes were in also bad shape. I was so excited to play at Myrtle Beach as my brother has been in Afganistan for the past 3 years. We met in Myrtle Beach and wanted to play there because he hadnt played any golf in 3 years. We did enjoy our time together but both of us were very dissapointed with the condition of the course. I would of loved to have the option to know that half of the course was shut down ahead of us arriving at the course, we would have gone somewhere else.
The course was not in good shape at all. Fairways were only nice thing about course. Employees were great but cours was not.
Very women friendly.our wives ALL loved it...the lunch package was FIRST rate and the course was very challenging
Too much of a swamp for me. Would not schedule the course in the future.
We Had A Wonderful Time. The Weather was Great. The Course Was in Good Shape. The Staff took Good Care of Us. Thank You For The Hospitality. Don & Eileen Raft
We played on 1/21/13. I love this course layout and the staff is friendly. The greens were not in great shape, I have to rate them low. This is one a gem as far as having a variety of holes and hazards. I especially love the front nine where there are no houses in sight, just the golf course and ponds and gators. We play it every year and will return.
Beautiful course with water features. Only issue - did not get my confirmation email about my booking in time. Received the email 10 hours after the tee time.
Played it 3 years in a row - last time in March 2011. Four groups backed up on one tee on back nine and not a marshall or a ball-washer to be found. Off our play list for 2013.
Except for one green, the course was in good condition.
Excellent course. Would play it again in a heartbeat. Pros: no houses, friendly staff, nice layout, WILDLIFE, course flows from one hole to the next. Cons: bunkers in poor shape, cart paths in need of work, it's in Conway and is a drive from the beach.
Pro shop merchandise had a ridiculous markup. Liked the included lunch, and course layout is favorite down here. Always a must play!
