Indian Wells Golf Club

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.

People at the course were very nice and the course is fun to play. Not that challenging but fun. The only downside was getting stuck behind the 4 guys that watch too much tv. They were a hole and a half behind the group in front after just 2 holes. By the 6th hole after we couldn't take it anymore and skipped a few hole to get ahead of them. The ranger later caught up to us and apologized but the damage had been done. Like I said, the guys running the course were great but they need to say something to groups that are making for a bad day. I will go back but only if I can get an early tee time.

Nice course. Extremely friendly staff. Will return.
by Paul T - 12/28/2017
Course was in good shape. Great layout. 18th hole is memorable. I think this is the #1 "value" course in MB. All staff I encountered made you feel welcome.
by Dennis N - 11/19/2017
Very nice layout. Lots of water but not unfair. Shot placement course not necessarily a big tee ball course. Greens a little slow but not that bad. All staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of birds on the lakes. Played in 3 hours.
by Andy E - 11/08/2017
The course was in great condition for this time of year. Great staff, starter, and ranger.
by Ken W - 10/13/2017
Well maintained. Challenging water holes and long par 3's. Great day
by Erin Roussey - 03/10/2017
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.
by Gary (Englewood,NJ) - 03/06/2017
Course in goo condition; like the set up.
by Stephan (East Rockaway,NY) - 02/18/2017
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.
by Randall (Davison, MI) - 02/14/2017
The course is in great shape! It was a pleasure to play and we will be back!!
by Bart Tannahill - 02/13/2017
Some tee boxes were iffy -
by Timothy - 02/09/2017
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.
by Tony (Upper Sandusky,OH) - 02/03/2017
Course was in great condition for January staff was great
by DAVE - 01/30/2017

by Ted - 12/03/2016
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.
by Pete (Moseley, VA) - 11/28/2016
Friendly staff all around...great course and greens and overall conditions... had to play it again 2 days later. Have played in Myrtle for 30 years...first time playing at Indian...will play again!
by Allan (Kernersville, NC) - 11/26/2016
Well kept competitive clean playable
by Bart (Portsmouth, NH) - 11/21/2016
the staff was very efficient. the course was in ok shape.
by Richard (Norristown, PA) - 11/13/2016
Staff - Very friendly and knowledgeable..Hole 9 dog to the right 2nd shot over water...I made 3.
by Stephen (Scotia, NY) - 11/13/2016
Very friendly staff, clean/neat clubhouse. Impressed with the condition of the greens.
by Paul (Kitchener, ON) - 11/09/2016
Right amount of risk and reward.
by Ted - 10/21/2016
Course is in very good shape 10 days after Hurricane Matthew blew thru. Tee Boxes, Fairways & Greens are nice. Greens are a little slow but putted true. Water on many holes including some forced carries but nothing outrageous. Pace of play was good. 4hrs & 15mins for our foursome.
by Dwayne (Lexington, NC) - 10/03/2016
Very good.
by Mark (Boerne, TX) - 09/26/2016
We played our first nine in about an hour and a half because there were not any groups in front of us. But we were behind a number of groups on the second nine and it took over 2 and a half hours.
by William (Hamburg, NY) - 09/22/2016
Very unique course, well laid out and somewhat difficult but a fair test of golf. Greens were subtle in their breaks but readable. Fairways are wide enough yet lined with trees and water to make your shot placements critical. Course was wet from a soaking rain the day before but very playable nonetheless. A great value for the price!!!!
by Patti (Franklinton, NC) - 09/20/2016
Great greens.
by Greg (Fishers, IN) - 09/14/2016
Staff was friendly other than maintenance worker who was mowing. Overall great experience, played 2x in week we were in town.
by Anthony (Hopewell, VA) - 09/10/2016
Beautiful course, very well maintained especially in light of the recent tropical storm that had dumped a ton of rain just a couple of days before.
by Scott (Cambridge, ON) - 08/21/2016
Ratings on course conditions...I understand it is summer and you have to protect the course from heat, so I was not disappointed. With so much water I wish I had brought my gps...several shots I thought were great turned out not to be so. I did not like that I could not drop my clubs at my car on the cart after the round. I thought the course was a fair test, my son who is 12 and new to the game played with me and he could navigate around the hazards...most of the tees were ok for him with one exception where we had to move him to the other side to tee off. The range interferes with the 18th hole...we lost a ball because so many range balls were on the hole it would have taken forever to find ours. Overall a good experience.
by Pat (Sicklerville, NJ) - 08/13/2016
Service was great. Greens were horrible, very long
by William (Southampton, MA) - 08/10/2016
Nice layout
by Delton (Spartanburg, SC) - 07/24/2016
Challenging course. Requires some precision and accurate shot making. The staff was very friendly. The course was in great shape overall.
by Robert (King's Park, NY) - 07/22/2016
Good course.
by Terry (Crescent, PA) - 07/07/2016
Courses layout good with harder holes to start....water hazards make for interesting round!!!!
by Richard (Saratoga Springs, NY) - 07/06/2016
Staff was great.
by Charles (Orange Park, FL) - 07/05/2016
Nice track, great customer service, good follow up by staff.
by Andy (Marietta, GA) - 06/10/2016
A course you must manage in terms of shots to location, verses simply hitting long.
by Pat (Myrtle Beach, SC) - 06/03/2016
Staff was very friendly and service oriented but the course needs work especially the greens.
by James (Summerville, SC) - 05/29/2016
Greens were not in good shape. Food was good and staff was friendly.
by Gary (Murrells Inlet, SC) - 05/24/2016
Greens were bad.
by Thomas (Selkirk, NY) - 05/23/2016
Nice layout, fast greens, I will be back, loved playing there
by Jon (Pampa, TX) - 05/19/2016
We enjoyed this course very well, set up nicely, but had some challenges. it was a busy day however and as we were playing in a foursome, we noticed some two and threesomes pushing us.
by Steve (Worcester, MA) - 05/18/2016
All holes were all good. You play there again. Very pleased
by Paul (Chester, VA) - 05/14/2016
I would have liked to know the greens had been aerated recently. The starter was very friendly.
by Donald (Norwich, NY) - 05/11/2016
The people were great, not rushed and very relaxed. Comfortable and very well maintained.
by Michael (Andrews, NC) - 05/11/2016
First 3 holes are a little hard with all the water but will know next time.
by Hugh (Saline, MI) - 05/08/2016

Great course for ladies, very friendly, THANK YOU. Greens/fairways were great the best we played in Myrtle Beach during our stay. Would recommend it.
by Graham (Raleigh, NC) - 04/21/2016
Very well maintained, very clean.
by Robert (Syracuse, NY) - 04/15/2016
Hole layout signs on the tees would be very helpful as scorecard layouts just too small.
by Mike (Bellefonte, PA) - 04/05/2016
Played twice before when very wet, great course when dry.
by Doug (Beesley's Point, MD) - 04/03/2016

Water hazards.
by Joe (Ware, MA) - 03/17/2016
by Dale (Beaver Bank, NS) - 03/10/2016
Enjoyed the layout even with the oddly placed trees. Made you think about where you wanted to place the ball off the tee and on any layups
by Michel (Chateauguay, QC) - 02/28/2016
Pace of play was way to slow : 5:10 hrs for a round. No marshall on the course. Were delayed by a foursome who was 2 holes before us... Attendant and starter would have been quoted excellent if a starter would have been on duty...
by Mike (Conquer All Bank, NS) - 02/21/2016
Good condition, but wet as all the courses are this year.
by James (Northport, NY) - 02/01/2016
Played four courses while in the Myrtle Beach area. Indian Wells was the best by far.
by John (Andover, MA) - 12/31/2015
There was no reason we should have been let out on that course. It poured the night before and the course was a MESS! Cart path only which was fine, but you left 6 inch footprints through the fairways. The tee boxes were so wet you could even get your footing to take a real swing. Tried hitting the ball into the rough and near cart paths (cause it was easier for me). Sad to see a course that could have been nice ruined because they probably didn't want to lose money!
by scupp19 - 11/16/2015
Course is a muddy mess. They can't mow because of the wet fairways. Can't find your ball in the fairway or the rough. Save your $.
by Graham (Stouffville, ON) - 10/26/2015
Marshals were very nice, but place of play was poor.
by Jane (Carrollton, GA) - 10/24/2015
Fantastic and absolutely beautiful. The staff was the best anywhere. Friendly and very nice. Great experience. Would definitely recommend this course. In my opinion, the best course we played at Myrtle Beach (we played 5 different courses this trip).
by Norlan (Spearman, TX) - 10/17/2015
(Liked the) layout of course.
by John (Wyckoff, NJ) - 10/15/2015
Course was extremely wet from rain 3 days earlier, cart path only, and pace of play was very poor w/ singles mixed w/ foursomes and no visible course marshalls to help out.
by John (Mayodan, NC) - 09/25/2015
Great course made you think.
by Jeff (Salisbury, MD) - 09/24/2015
This course was challenging but fun.
by Paul (Red Lion, PA) - 09/18/2015
Nice course.
by Dave (Oregon, WI) - 09/18/2015
Water carry
by John (State College, PA) - 08/24/2015
Course in very good condition. Starter very friendly. Pro shop attendant very nice; we received very heavy rain after nine holes and he provided a rain check. This is one of our favorite courses when we come here for vacation. We play every year at Indian Wells.
by Tommy (Pittsboro, NC) - 08/16/2015
All was excellent however the starter was the best of the entire course.
by Charles (Midlothian, VA) - 08/16/2015
Nice course. Not too tough, but fair and fun to play. Greens had just been aerated and sanded. Think I would enjoyed it more of the greens are normal.
by Brian (Charlotte, NC) - 08/12/2015
Marshalls and Starter were very friendly.
by Francis (Prospect Park, PA) - 08/05/2015
Course is a challenge.
by Sue (Naples, FL) - 07/28/2015
Cart paths were too bumpy to be comfortable... took away from an otherwise good experience.
by Russell (Irmo, SC) - 07/22/2015
Played many times. Enjoy the course.
by David (Pittsburgh, PA) - 07/18/2015
Snack bar lady told us there wasn't a special for a six pack of beer but then when we finished we sat down and saw sign on table about the six pack special.
by David (Oak Ridge, TN) - 07/03/2015
Nice course.
by John (Davidsville, PA) - 07/02/2015
Played here last year one time. Very close to the house we rent. Pro shop staff was very friendly and helpful. We played there 5 days this year, greens were a little slow because of annual maintenance to them (aeration) but we had a great time. They ran a special because of the work they were doing.
by Bruce (Newmanstown, PA) - 05/08/2015
Neat course with some very tough holes and some easy ones. I wished I would have known how much water was on course.
by Jeffrey (Great Mills, MD) - 05/04/2015
Nice course layout. Tough first couple holes. Greens were a little thin.
by James (Calhoun, TN) - 04/25/2015
Good layout.

by Timothy - 01/28/2014
I'm very sorry to say that Indian Wells has gotten run down and shabby, I used to always enjoy playing this course but it has fallen into disrepair. The tees are all chewed up and the fairways are thin. The greens are painter to hid some bad spots. The staff was excellent to deal with but the course is a very low end spot now. We played it on 1/26/14 and it's that time of year when the courses are hard to work but this has been neglected for some time. I will not return and by the look of the parking lot on a nice sunday afternoon, many people feel the same as me. I try to give an honest review, I hope it helps.
by Wayne (Chesapeake, VA) - 01/28/2014
Good value for the price.
by Gary - 12/06/2013
Worth playing again.Greens rolled true.

The greens were perfect.
by Clinton (Charleston, WV) - 08/09/2013
Had to use cart path only on back 9 due to rain the night before. The cart paths are in rough condition.
by Lisa (Massillon, OH) - 08/01/2013
My husband and I are beginner golfers. We are not the fastest or the slowest. However, when we arrived at this course we told them this. We started on the back 9 and there was no one behind us that we could see. One of the attendants came up to us and thought he paired us with another couple. We said no, remember we told you we sucked. Haha. Then he rudely said, Well suck a little faster if you can REALLY?!?!?!?! How unprofessional!!!!!!! We paid our money just like anyone else! We ended up leaving and not even finishing our game! We were really p-ed!!!!
by MH - 07/30/2013
Played Sunday 7/28. Course is in very good shape. Problem was 2 groups in front of us playing at a 5+ hr. pace. They should have been thrown off the course! Tee time was early.
by Ken (Saginaw, MI) - 06/03/2013
The only problem I had with the course was that the cart paths were awful rough - ashphalt needs reworking. The rest of our experience was very good.
