Golfers who enjoy courses that flout conventional wisdom will want to play Man O’ War, a Dan Maples design that always leaves players talking.

What makes Man O’ War different (and so enjoyable), you ask? Let’s start here: the course is built around a 100-acre lake that defines the layout. Water is a significant factor on 12 of 18 holes and it defines the course visually on every hole.

Man O’ War is also devoid of rough as the entire property is maintained from tee to green, helping create ideal conditions for players to enjoy throughout the year (Man O’War overseeds wall-to-wall, so the layout is always lush and green). The course is also one of the very few along the Myrtle Beach golf scene that continues to have bentgrass greens and they’ve held up beautifully, helping further differentiate Man O’ War from its peers.

Man O’ War is home to an island hole – the par-4 9th is surrounded by water from tee to green – and it’s the only course in the nation that features back-to-back island greens. But this is a layout that challenges conventional wisdom without being contrived.

Water is everywhere at Man O’ War but it doesn’t overwhelm players or the experience. Players have a chance to score and even the island greens are large enough that golfers have sufficient margin for error.

This is a unique design, one golfers need to experience. As part of the Mystical Golf Group, Man O’ War can be paired with its sister courses, The Witch and The Wizard, to create a value-centric golf package the entire group will enjoy.

Man O’ War earned four stars in Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play guide. According to Golf Digest a four-star course is worth building a golf trip around, and people who have enjoyed the Man O’ War experience certainly wouldn’t argue.
