The Myrtle Beach, S.C., owner and operator of The Wizard course is redesigning the bunkers, intending to be reminiscent of wind-swept courses in the U.K. The course also features heather-grassed mounds, rollicking fairways and striking elevations with stone bridges and a castle-style clubhouse.
Mystical Golf in Myrtle Beach, S.C., is enhancing the “Scottish feel” of its Wizard course by adding St. Andrews-style sod facing to five greenside bunkers and rebuilding 20 fairway hazards into pot bunkers.
The par-72, 6,721-yard design is intended to be reminiscent of wind-swept courses in the U.K. In addition to the dramatic bunkering redesign, it features heather-grassed mounds, rollicking fairways and striking elevation changes. Trademark stone bridges and a castle-style clubhouse complete the “Old World” ambience.
Mystical adopts a “rye program” of over-seeding during the winter and early spring on its layouts to ensure plush wall-to-wall green fairways year-round.
“We’ll invest whatever it takes to provide the finest playing experience possible for our guests, and superior course conditioning is our calling card,” says Claude Pardue, President and CEO. “Our primary goal is to exceed expectations and provide the best golf value in the U.S., bar none.”
Mystical Golf owns and operates three layouts in Myrtle Beach, including The Wizard, The Witch and Man O’ War. The Witch was named GOLF Magazine’s “Best Bargain” in Myrtle Beach and the magazine also called the 15th hole on Man O’ War one of its five “Most Memorable Island Greens.”
