DESCRIPTION
About Man O’War

Located in the Carolina Forest section of Myrtle Beach, Man O’ War golf course is no joke, as its name suggests. Surrounding a 100-acre lake, this course contains all the drama and challenge that are the hallmark of world-famous architect Dan Maples. This lake winds through the course, but don’t be dazed by its beauty or else it can become a punishing hazard.


Man O’ War is a par 72, 18-hole layout that features large Bentgrass greens, and holes that challenge even the best of golfers. Test your skill and prepare yourself for a battle for par against the amazing island 9th, and back-to-back island greens.


But don’t worry; if you’re a golfer that is working on his or her skill-set, then you are in luck. Though there are some challenging holes on this course, the fairways and rough make this course playable for any golfer. The fairways are smooth and consistent, and also not very tight which makes it easier to pick the ball. The rough is short, which makes it easier to find your ball and keep the pace of play smooth and fast.


While you’re at the Man O’ War, be sure to stop by the practice range, putting green, chipping area, and practice bunker to prepare for an all-out war against the tough obstacles on the course. Also be sure to check out the marina-style clubhouse that provides players with a pro-shop and a restaurant to serve those golfers that grew hungry during their “battle.”

"Where do I begin? The pro shop was useless, it seemed like I was bothering them when I got there. First golf course I've ever been to that didn't have any cigars...told me they were out of them. Someone isn't doing there job. Arrived hour+ early to warm up and hit the range. We had to walk to range because they didn't have any place to park carts by it. Range had no yardage markers and no water bucket to clean off clubs when finished hitting, so it was useless. No chipping area even though they advertise they have one. Yes, the small things like this, that you find at any decent course, matter. They wouldn't let us have a cart until 10 minutes before tee time. Said they had to keep tabs on them and they didn't trust people with them, so had to stand at cart barn with many other unhappy people. Greens were inconsistent with the speed. In other words, I was not happy before I ever hit a shot. I recommend skipping this course."

"I played Man O' War last week and was not very impressed. The nicest part about the course was that it was fairly empty and we almost had it to ourselves.Pros: Staff was courteous, it was not busy, and they give you free lunch with a tee time. Also the length of the course at nearly 7,000 yard from the tips was great.Cons: The course was not maintained well. The greens we very patchy and uneven. The bunkers needed new sand. The fairways were freshly mowed however there were huge clumps of grass clippings everywhere! Every hole was littered with chunks of grass. Most courses bag their cut grass but apparently they don't do it here. The tee boxers were average at best. The worst aspect was the fact that there were maintenance workers all over the course making tremendous amounts of noise while we were playing. I realize mowers, weed-eaters, and blowers are loud and that work has to be done to the course, but why was it all being done at 11:00 am? It was very distracting and none of the employees seemed to care.I usually don't complain about golf courses but this course did not meet my expectations. I realize it's on the lower price scale but still, I was expecting nicer conditions and a course that didn't have maintenance workers all over it as we were trying to play. The pictures of this course look pretty but overall, reality doesn't match up. I don't think I will be going back. There are so many great courses in MB that are much better in my opinion."

"Nice layout in the links style course but it just ticked me off when I pay full price and I am told to ride the cart path. Now this had nothing to do with rain since the area was generally dry for the last week."

"This is a fair golf course considering all the water. The condition of the tee boxes are excellent but the greens have been in better shape. My only setback with this course would be that even if I had booked the first tee time of the day some "connected" twosome managed to be ahead. It may not matter too many but for me it is called "principles"...so do not be surprised if you get forward golfers in front of you."

"Always in great shape. More playable than you might think. Of more than 100 courses in the area this is easily in the top 10. Now for the bad news, you don't get the discounts you used to. I paid 68 dollars to play 18 holes. Used to play 3 rounds for $100."

"Played there today with my wife, best friend, and his son. Wide variety of skills, and all had a great time. Beautiful course, great staff from starter to pro shop. We played the Witch last year, and this course was a little more wide open. Had more water, but not for ladies as much as tees were after initial water. Highly recommend for all levels of players. Played on a Tuesday morning for $52 per golfer, which included lunch, and 2 beverages. Highly recommend for all levels of players!!!"
