Not to worry, the Myrtle Beach Golf Authority is here to make your decision a little easier with in-depth looks at a few of Myrtle Beach’s premier courses.
This week, we will be looking at the mesmerizing Wizard Golf Club.
Situated just a short drive from downtown Myrtle Beach in the beguiling river town of Conway, SC, The Wizard Golf Club was designed by the legendary course architect—Dan Maples. Measuring 6,700 yards at its longest, the traditional links-style course plays to vary manageable Par-71.
From the moment you arrive at this breathtaking course, you will feel as if you have been magically transported from the salty marshland of low country South Carolina to the ancient moors of Scotland. The unique clubhouse was modeled after an ancient Scottish-style castle, adding to the course’s overall romance.
Like all true Scottish links, Maples’ perfectly incorporated the native vegetation and undulating natural terrain into his design. Rolling terrain, berms, numerous water hazards, and strategic bunkering give the course an almost haunting beauty while also offering golfers a plethora of exciting challenges.
The Wizard is a course that favors precision and patience. There are numerous holes where there’s water or bunkers that simply aren’t visible from the tee. Low handicap players will find plenty of birdie opportunities throughout, while a higher handicap player will be able to keep the ball in play and have some exceptional scoring chances. All levels will find their shot-making abilities challenged.
