One of three creative designs of the Mystical Golf Group, The Wizard has recently earned an overall rating of 8.5 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for a pleasant management staff, beautiful design, and great experience.
Course designer Dan Maples brought a whole different experience to Myrtle Beach by bringing a feel of Mountain Golf with drastic undulations throughout the course. Recognized by Golf Digest as “4 stars,” it’s one of the three Mystical Group courses that also includes The Witch and Man O’ War that is said to be a “must-play” for all golfers.
Starter was exceptional. Course was fair and very interesting to play. A real switch from other MB courses, very much a links style with enough water to make for a great round.
Nice course, open and very windy. Liked the last couple of finishing holes with water in play.
Have played here many times over the years, was surprised to see the poor course conditions. Attitude of pro shop staff did not help with their lack of concern for our group. Doubt I will ever chance playing here in the future as their are plenty of good choices in MB!
While the course overall was in good condition, several holes were littered with goose droppings to the point of making them almost unplayable.
Layout of the course was fine and interesting. The greens were not fun to putt. They had been plugged and not much sand over the top to fill the holes. Lots of Seagulls on the last hole. Informing a guest about the greens before play would be nice with an adjustment in the fee to make it a worth playing. I would think twice before I played it again. The management was friendly and helpful.
Wizard is a feel good course. It's wide open and easy to score. The staff was excellent, including the friendly cat at the drop spot. Very few people there because it was a cool morning. It's quite damp in areas but all the courses are damp with all the rain we've had. The tees and greens are in good condition and the fairways are cut well. Tip toe through the seagulls and droppings on the 18th but it's a good challenge. Enjoyed the day and will return.
The track is just great -- Greens are true and in great shape.. Fairways are beautiful . Love the 17th hole par three.. challenging, trust the yardage ! Just a real nice layout .. Thanks for being there..
We come 2 Myrtle twice a year; Wizard is a must every time course always in good shape. Greens are always consistent staff is friendly.
Very slow play. Had to wait on every shot. Never saw a ranger.
Tee Boxes, Fairways are in excellent shape. There were a couple of greens that were not great but very playable. The rough is up so it's easy to lose a errant shot in the rough. The starter brought us out cold wet towels on the course due to the extreme heat. *** VERY NICE TOUCH ***
Course was in good shape. Staff was friendly. Greens rolled true, not fast but not slow either.
Course in good shape. Great staff. Green were not fast but also not slow. I would recommend playing here.
Wow!! What a great course. It was in great shape. Had paid more to play inferior courses. I look forward to the next time I'm in MB.
The whole experience was wonderful
The Wizard is a fun course, and was in great condition especially being in January. The first hole is a good starter hole with a dog leg to the right around water but you can plenty of room to work the ball. Fairways most part wide and the ball would run out well playing in the winter. The club house is one-of-a-kind with its castle design.
Nice layout with some interesting holes at the beginning and end.
One less tee time in the morning. Too slow with the double tees. Had to wait 30+ mins at the turn.
There were lots of pock marks on the green which made putting difficult around the hole, and tee boxes could've been a little better groomed. But hospitality was great and the free lunch sandwich/2 drinks is a great deal.
Played on May 1, and the course was in great shape. Greens, fairways, and tees were just about perfect. Good layout - you face some choices on a few holes. Good course for women as well. Everyone on the staff was very friendly. Give it a try - you wont be disappointed.

Very nice course in great condition. Starter was very friendly and we got a free lunch with our round 2 hot dogs and 2 beers. Only complaint was pace it wasn't the course's fault but the group 2 ahead of us kept taking like 10 minutes to search for their tee shots, made for a 5 hour round and on a day when it was 90 degrees it made for a long day.
Played The Wizard on July 20th. Course was in great shape, but more importantly the staff was awesome. The golf pro Stephen Haines went far and beyond his duties in making our group of 32 comfortable. The Witch had a flood problem and Randy/Stephen managed to get our group back on Man O War. Hats off to Man O War and The Wizard. Ron J/ Par Players Golf Club
Starter and course management staff were the best
The course was in great shape and had no arguments about the condition outside of the poor weather we had. The service was horrible which was a shame b/c I really enjoyed this golf course.
Greens not really growing made some putting adventurous; on the other hand, the fairways were lush. Love the Wizard's layout.
Very wet due to all our rain but fun course with some very interesting holes. Staff were good except for pro shop reception.
We played on 2/14/13 and the course was soaked from rain two days before so it was cart path only on every hole. The greens have just been spiked and was not fun at all. The sand was not swept out very good so it made for tough putting. The staff was very pleasant but the play was slow with a guy in front of us fishing on the last few holes instead of playing golf after he dunked his balls in the water. That backed up the course for the last 45 minutes. The Wizard in general is a wide open feel good course that plays easy.
Had so much fun on this course, beautiful design of the course my group will be back in 2013.
Our group of 24 loved this golf course and everything about it including the friendliness of the personnel. I, the only person who had any contact with the person behind the counter in the pro-shop rated it fairly low, because he was totally occupied with business and failed to welcome me and our group or to have any real comments. The shop itself was very nice and well stocked.
Thought it was a great course...a little wet the day we played, but still nice.
It was a fun day for me. As an older woman and play only for fun, I am not qualified to rate a golf course.
This was my first round at the Wizard Course, having played approximately 60-65 of the courses over the past 20+ years of going to Myrtle Beach. We were pleasantly surprised at the interesting layout and the value of the round was outstanding. $37 for the round including lunch and 2 drinks ... awesome! The only warning is that you will lose balls even if you are slightly off the fairway due to the depth of the rough and the natural grass areas. The first hole and numbers 17 and 18 are the most interesting holes to play on the course. I would definitely play the course again.
Greens had a lot of scars from ball marks. Fairways were extremely wet, which was not their fault, but they were being cut during the round which left significant clumps of grass all over.
Staff was great, clubhouse wasn't as well air conditioned as pro shop so a bit of a balmy drink afterwards.
They all did a great job.
Course was in great shape. Greens were receptive, plush and rolled true. Pro shop and grill were fine too.
All staff very accommodating. The course was in great condition. I took my son on his 15th birthday and it was a wonderful experience.
Nice layout but conditions were fair due to the saturation of the fairways and also the aeration of the fairways and greens. Staff was excellent and got us out early. Pace of play was great (finished round in a little over 3 hours). Favorite hole was #17. Lunch deal was good. One suggestion would be to renovate the outside of the clubhouse to look like a real castle.
I had a bad day. Great course, I just had a bad day. Stay out of the rough ... because once you are in it, you are really in it.
Great pro shop.
Best experience ever when dealing with a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. Go Ravens!! hahaha
Wide open fairways, greens were challenging, clubhouse was really cool, beautiful surroundings.
Great place ... We have played this course 5 years in a row and will go back next year. The staff is awesome and they gave us a free lunch with our round. That was an added bonus for sure!
I found the course to be in good shape. The greens were slow, but that's understandable considering the hot, semi-drought conditions. The course offered several risk/reward type holes that made it interesting. Thoroughly enjoyable experience and definitely would play again.
