Mystical Golf, home to “Myrtle Beach’s finest 54 holes of golf”, announced this year marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of its acclaimed Man-O-War and Wizard courses.

Since joining Mystical Golf’s first course, The Witch, which debuted in 1989, Man-O-War and The Wizard have formed a trifecta continually lauded by customers and major golf media. Designed by Dan Maples, the trio has been consistently recognized among Myrtle Beach’s “five best courses” and “best values.”

The Witch and Man-O-War courses were recently ranked in the “Top 15 Courses in South Carolina” in Golf Channel’s Golf Advisor rater reviews for 2015. Man-O-War’s 15th hole ranks among GOLF Magazine’s “Five Most Memorable Island Greens” alongside No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass, the “Alcatraz” hole at PGA West’s Stadium Course and Coeur d’Alene Resort’s movable, floating putting surface. The Wizard has earned an exceptional 4-1/2 stars from Golf Digest.

“Our customers always marvel about how The Wizard and Man-O-War are side-by-side yet offer two completely different golf experiences that are equally amazing,” says Claude Pardue, President and CEO. “For two decades golfers have returned year-after-year to enjoy what has become widely known as Myrtle Beach’s premier buddy trip destination.”

Perfect to enjoy playing at Mystical Golf during the summer until Sept.7, the three-day Gold Package starts at $99 (per person, per day, taxes included). Features include three rounds with cart on each of the much-admired Mystical Golf layouts (plus one complimentary round), three nights’ lodging in well-appointed three-bedroom villa (four beds), free iHOP breakfast daily (available 24 hours per day), and a gratis steak dinner at Logan’s Roadhouse.

Additional package extras include two free beers and lunch at the course each day, complimentary daily range balls, instant replay round for cart fee only, and $15 gift card toward a golf shirt. Extra night stays are available at a moderate cost per person.

Offered during the same time span, the Silver Package starts at $89 (per person, per day, taxes included) and features all the highlights of the Gold Package except the complimentary round, daily breakfast and steak dinner. Both stay-and-plays offer one complimentary golfer for booked groups of 20 or more players.

Mystical Golf’s three layouts are highlighted by wonderfully fun elements including the only back-to-back island greens in the game (Man-O-War), a front nine of dramatic holes weaving through secluded swampland teeming with wildlife (The Witch), and a splendid layout reminiscent of Scotland and Ireland’s classic courses complete with authentic sod-faced bunkering and castle-style clubhouse (The Wizard).
