The earth was moved to form the dramatic elevation changes that are the calling card of The Wizard. The ambitions design Dan Maple implemented required over 1,000,000 cubic yards of soil to be sculpted and moved, giving the course a rolling and tumultuous layout. With open fairways, The Wizard is player-friendly, but don't relax too much as the final three holes are highlighted by devilish water hazards, with 17 and 18 incorporating island greens that demand focus and accuracy on your approach. For a fun and fast-paced round of golf on your next Myrtle Beach journey, come be spellbound by the 18 holes of The Wizard.
