The Witch Golf Club
The Witch Golf Club spans more than 500 scenic acres between Myrtle Beach and Conway, creating a course that is both enchanting and challenging. Designed by renowned architect Dan Maples, this 4.5-star course, according to Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play, sits among dense forests and pristine wetlands, far removed from the homes, hotels, development and distractions that surrounds other courses on the Grand Strand.
With more than 4,000 feet of bridgework required to navigate the lowcountry layout, golfers of all skill levels will b put to a test by the course’s cleverly conceived configuration. The front nine meanders through the wetlands. The back nine moves from the Lowcountry to something that feels more like mountain golf. The 16th, 17th and 18th holes feature uncommon natural elevation that presents a different challenge, invigorating golfers as they near the end of the day.
Among the best holes at the 4 ½-star course is the par-4 9th, where players say goodbye to the swamp with a forced carries off the tee and on the approach. It’s not a long hole, playing just 376 yards from the tips, but it’s fraught with peril if not played with some management.
The 18th is a par 4 that plays 390 yards with a forced carry from the tee boxes to a a fairway that rolls from right to left. It’s a memorable finish in front of the clubhouse.
