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.

Went to Indian Wells yesterday. Was never disrespected the way the staff did there. They overbook the course, then they hurry you off. The grounds crew wouldn't even move out of the traps on the par 3 number 8 so we could safely tee off. Luckily the company I booked through is refunding our fees. I will never play this course again. I chose it based off the recommendation of a local associate. Bad news travels fast, and I'll be spreading it for you every chance I get. Of course, the manager there told a different story to the agency. Way to go pissing off two SC businessmen that used your course for a meeting day.

Staff was friendly. Course was very wet, poor drainage after rain the day before. No carts not allowed on fairways for the whole round even though started the round at 10am.

Cart path only because of heavy rains the night before and this like a lot of MB courses doesn't drain well. That being the case, it was a nice
day. The fairways had puddles but still playable. Greens were not fast but in pretty good condition. Restrooms need work. Staff was very friendly and got us out early because the place was empty of golfers.
I enjoy the layout, especially the back nine, almost holed my 7 wood on the 186 yard 17th hole.

Course is in good shape. Greens putted slow but true. Lot's of water on this course but you can work your way around. Staff is always very friendly.
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.
