Man O’ War Golf Club

Water, water everywhere on this dynamically designed Myrtle Beach golf course. Man O’ War Golf Club has remained in the upper echelon of local courses, and earned a prestigious four-star rating from Golf Digest. But it’s Man O’ War’s originality that offers an experience that no visiting golfer will ever forget.

Built around a 100-pluss acre lake, this Dan Maples design has swallowed plenty of golf balls in its time. But for the most part, the prepared and patient can maneuver it while enjoying its originality.

Opened in 1996, Man O’ War includes water on 16 of its 18 holes. That includes back-to-back island greens on Nos. 14 and 15 – said by Sports Illustrated to possibly be the game’s only such occurrence. If you’re lucky enough to stay dry, you still have to worry about the very fast bentgrass greens. Before golfers reach that unique double, though, they also have to contend with No. 9. The 433-yard par 4 is an island hole, not simply a green. From the tee box, players must hit a straight shot onto a secondary island, connected to the first only by an elevated cart path. The approach then requires a near-perfect shot to stay out of sand. Of course, it wouldn’t be Man O ‘War without more water coming into play. Most consider this another par 5 for the course because of its propensity for bogeys. And that’s just the seventh-hardest hole on the course. Located in the Carolina Forest area of the Grand Strand, Man O’ War is just off U.S. 501 in the heart of Myrtle Beach. It also attracts plenty of visitors, especially ones who fly into town and spot all that water from overhead.

Tee to green the course is in great shape, they have been working hard to get their greens back, still need a few weeks to finish the healing process. Staff and Service always friendly.

Speed of play terrible. Played front nine twice to avoid slow play. Staff kind enough to grant our wish. Played that nine in 75 minutes

Fun course and not too difficult if you keep it out of the water. People very friendly. Green in good shape. Bunkers a bit "rough". 4 stars.

A favorite of our group. It is challenging yet fair. Fairways were in good shape. A few greens needed work but most were good with average speed that keeps play moving.
