The Witch golf course is situated between Conway and Myrtle Beach, S.C. sprawling across more than 500 secluded acres that are far removed from residential and commercial development. The peaceful setting is abundant with wildlife including bald eagles and deer. You may even see an alligator during your round. The Dan Maples design has a challenging but fun routing that is known for the tricky green complexes. There is plenty of variety throughout with a front nine that plays through marshland and a back nine that is routed across rolling hills. There are a few forced carries and some strategically placed bunkers but you won't find much water on the golf course. The fairways range from wide to narrow, and the well manicured, undulating greens roll fast and true. The Witch is a popular round on the Myrtle Beach golf circuit.

The Witch

Course was in good shape. Greens were aerated 3 weeks ago and are almost back to 100%. Best part is when playing a hole, you don't see other golfers. Every hole is separate from every other hole. Interesting layout with forced carries on several holes.
Play was interrupted by showers a couple of times so it was a long round. A woman who worked in the proshop/restaurant wasn't happy that we stayed and waited out the rain to finish our round. We finished at 2:30. She was rude and ended a pretty good day on a sour note. I would play here again

Disappointing coindition on multiple greens and tee boxes

I enjoyed the course layout. With all the options to choose from in the Myrtle Beach area, it would be hard for me to decide to play here again with the bad conditions on multiple greens and tee boxes.

Disappointed

Course was not in the best of shape. My kudos to all the work they are performing at this time. Greens recently aerated. Should have been notified before booking. Putts bounced all over. Course design was good. Should be a very good track when maintenance is completed and greens healed.

Terrible

This place used to be one of the best courses in myrtle beach but now it’s a total DUMP of a course. Most of the tee boxes were mud and most of the greens were basically putting on pure clay with no green what so ever. I will never pay $52 for that place again not will I ever play it again.

Terrible tee boxes, several of the greens were beyond terrible, virtually unplayable. Did see and alligator which was cool being on vacation from the Midwest. Also saw a staff member lose his mind and drive like a maniac and nearly flip his cart. Definitely not worth the $50 though.

Terrible back 9

Course was challenging and the layout was good. The tee boxes and greens were awful. Back 9 was particularly lousy.
Sod strips lined greens. Tee boxes were dirt

On the plus side staff did mention that they airated the greens a month ago. So they were honest.
Cart girl working out of a igloo cooler had the cheapest beer @ 3.00 cans.

We did witness a younger grounds keeper on the 14th roll his Ute cart as he was laughing and doing circles while spraying the green. After uprighting he hit a stump and launched the chemical tank out of the back of the cart. Highlight of the day.

Not a course I would play again

My review

All of the greens were in horrible condition with little to no grass. Half of the tee boxes were in horrible condition with little or no grass. The upkeep around the club house was bad, very bad. Service was decent and pace of play was good because hardly anyone was on the course. The cart girl was nice but didn’t have a loaded cart but used a regular cart to haul around some minimal refreshments. It was not a good experience.

The Witch

Would have been nice to know that the greens were aerated 4 days before we played.

A couple tee boxes on the back nine were just dirt.

Course has some great holes with lots of water and trees. Would definitely play again in conditions were better.

Very cool course!

Cool place to play. Fun experience traveling through the elevated wood cart trails that meander through the Spanish moss forest. Felt like we were the only golfers on the course.
Keep your eyes peel for the gators. We saw (and heard) a couple.
