Knowledgeable Myrtle Beach golfers have long been aware of Indian Wells Golf Club. The course enjoys a prime location just off Highway 17, luring players to a layout that is appealing from the road and looks even better once you are in a golf cart.
Indian Wells isn’t long, playing 6,624 yards from the tips, but it’s not without challenge. It’s a traditional design featuring tree-lined fairways and, by contemporary standards, relatively small greens.
There is water on 15 holes as well, making it a ball-strikers course. The layout rewards intelligent play and precision, particularly on the approach. There are only 48 bunkers on the course, so players will find themselves chipping from around the greens on occasion, so spend time tuning up the short game before teeing off.
Collectively, the par 3s at Indian Wells are the course’s toughest group of holes, particularly the 210-yard 17th that brings water into play. It’s part of a daunting finish, highlighted by the par 4th 18th, which requires players to negotiate around a tree that is 50 yards in front of the green.
Indian Wells is a good course that golfers can always count on being in excellent condition. The combination of an easily accessible location and a value price make Indian Wells a South Strand favorite.
The number of golf courses who declare their elevation changes in their bios along South Carolina’s Grand Strand is vast. A handful of options exist where the start, finish and everything in-between rolls as straight as possible without mounding or hills getting in the way.
Myrtle Beach is well known for great courses and stay-and-play deals. But did you know there are a lot of superior “learn-and-play” opportunities available, too? No one enjoys playing poorly on a golf vacation, so why not pick up a tip or two that will improve your scores?
There are so-called golf meccas in the United States that bill themselves as having a course for everyone. And even though reputations are earned and tastes differ, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that Myrtle Beach has lost more courses in the last 15 years than some of those other areas are still boasting.
