A "Mystical" Myrtle Beach golf experience
The Southeast’s weather forecast earlier this week was dire at best. Savannah was being pelted incessantly, and gloom and doom in the form of “locally heavy flooding” was the watchword all the way up the coast. It looked like a press trip scheduled in Myrtle Beach was going to be a washout.
So how did we manage 72 holes with the umbrella in use for maybe 10 minutes total? Chalk it up to a mystical experience, or maybe Mystical Experience, to be more accurate.
Mystical Golf is the owner/operator of a trio of golf courses that are among the finest on the entire Grand Strand: The Witch, The Wizard, and Man O’War. All three golf courses are championship caliber, yet completely different in terms of look, feel, and style of play. Man O’War, which is basically flat, has water either directly or indirectly affecting almost every hole. But the neighboring Wizard, with very little water in play other than the gauntlet of the final three holes, uses the million cubic yards of earth that were excavated to build the lake to afford the rarest of Myrtle Beach golf sensations – notable elevation changes. The Witch is a 500-acre wonderland set in the midst of the 23,000-acre Waccamaw swamp. It’s located some 10 minutes drive from its sister courses. Routed through the marshlands endemic to the area, winding wooden cart-paths transport golfers through spooky swamps and bogs, where Cypress knees (gnarly, visible roots of Cypress trees) are well in evidence between the previous green and succeeding tee.
The moral of the story? You cannot trust the weatherman to deliver an accurate forecast. But you can trust Mystical Golf to deliver a solid golf experience on meticulously maintained courses, with fine customer service and at affordable green fees.
