Golf Myrtle Beach

Mystical Golf is showcasing “Myrtle Beach’s finest 54 holes of golf” on its acclaimed Witch, Man-O-War and Wizard designs, and is currently featuring its trio of “completely green” courses ideal for exceptional spring “golf buddy” trips.

The courses reflect considerable yearly investments in overseeding with Ryegrass as is done around such top echelon courses as Augusta National. Mystical Golf recently completed a $750,000 renovation. The 142 bunkers on all three layouts were completely rebuilt and now display vibrant white sand for contrasts with the green fairways.

Starting at $133 (per person, per day, taxes included), Mystical Golf’s three-day Gold Package features three rounds with cart on each of the acclaimed Mystical Golf layouts (plus one additional complimentary afternoon 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 (includes non-alcoholic beverages, taxes).

Added package highlights 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 in any of the three well-stocked pro shops. Extra night stays are available at a moderate cost per person.

The Silver Package begins at $123 (per person, per day, taxes included) and features all the components 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.
