Indigo Creek Golf Club

Built in 1990 and designed by Willard Byrd, Indigo Creek was given 3 stars by Golf Digest in their “1998 Places to Play.”  Indigo was nominated in 1990 as a “Top Ten Places to Play” by Golf Digest and was designed over an old indigo plantation.

The par 3 signature 11th hole is a tough carry over water to a difficult green.   This Lowcountry gem is scattered with large pines and tall oaks tucked near the heart of Myrtle Beach.

The whole experience was great.

Paul (Chester, VA)

05/14/2016

The starter was very friendly

Ted

04/19/2016

Many Tee Boxes needed mowing. Very wet in front of most greens. Could not run a shot up. Fairways were rock hard otherwise. Greens were very inconsistent. Would look to play elsewhere with all the other choices around.

Kurtis (Shawano, WI)

One of our favorites from years ago. People are awesome there. Lots of rain the day before but the course was still very playable.

Rose Marie (New Kensington, PA)

Course was a little long at times and conditions were not too favorable due to the storm that passed through the previous week.

Peter

Nice golf course. Great layout, a challenge for all golfers. Well worth the price. Would play it again.

MXDOZER

07/24/2015

Fairways short of the some greens were soaked with so much water that anything hit short of the green would plug. Inconsistent greens too. Some wet and slow, some dry and hard.

Sean

Wow - this place was great 10 years ago! I guess the new/old mgmt. company are still lining their pockets instead of putting $$ into the course. Nobody at the bag drop-1pm? Horrible greens-time to redo them-no water on the course-only 95 out-bottom line- 60 better courses to play than here-buyer beware!!!

Robert (Glen Ellyn, IL)

03/24/2015

For all the water the course was in good condition. I really liked the way the course played, tough but fair. I can see the greens becoming a lot faster without all the rain.

Dan (Hephzibah, GA)

11/13/2014

Course was very soggy. Our group was put out behind a large tournament. Pace of play was slow.

Bernie (Rochester, NY)

11/12/2014

Excellent.

Gregory (St. Simons Island, GA)

11/03/2014

Round last over 6 hours. Course was overbooked and there was no ranger to speed up play. Also, course had sign no personnel water but there was no water on course. We will not play this course again.

OK.

Bill/ Beth (Bridgeton, NJ)

10/13/2014

Indigo Creek was a very pleasant surprise from the many fairways with water to the gator on one hole. We had a very nice round of golf.

Eddie (Jacksonville, NC)

09/26/2014

Excellent.

Perry and Anita (Noblesville, IN)

I was extremly disapointed this course was by far the worst course on our 7 day trip it was a nice layout but poorly managed and cared for would not recommend to felow golfers

Gordon (New Castle, ON)

To much water lying around the tee blocks and lots of water lyning at front of greens. Will not want to play this course again

Phillip (Wakefield, MA)

11/05/2013

All was fine

Jim (Tyngsboro, MA)

10/24/2013

Course in terrible shape due to overseeding and tee box maintenance. Tee time did not match what golf office at Litchfield gave us. Had to wait an hour on a course that was not busy. Never will play there again.

Cheryl (Clayton, DE)

09/16/2013

Great

Gerry

07/29/2013

I think the course needs a lot of work,from the pro shop on down the line, mostly management

Gerry

07/25/2013

They should hire some help,one bag drop guy no starter or rangers.

Ken

05/08/2013

Course was very nice even though it was wet. price was right 35 bucks, will def go back next year.

Robert (Peckville, PA)

Good

Bryan (Canton, MI)

04/08/2013

Due to the bad winter, the course was wet and muddy. I have played here before and the course condition was the complete opposite, dry and hard fairways/greens. I do enjoy playing this course regardless, and the staff is always friendly.

Linda (Kingston, ON)

03/28/2013

OK

Gary (Mentor, OH)

03/26/2013

Edward (Canton, OH)

10/15/2012

Good first day course.

William (Piedmont, SC)

10/12/2012

Course was in decent shape, one attendant was trying to serve as starter, bag drop and cart attendant with no help. He did a great job but was really overwhelmed and it slowed service down. Course was really wet and it would've been nice to know before play. Played Blackmoor (Gary Player course) the day before and thought overall experience was better.

Scott (Davenport, IA)

10/08/2012

Course was in good condition but the rough was fairly deep which slows down play when the ball falls into the first cut of grass and you have to search to find it.

Mack (Pooler, GA)

07/28/2012

Course in excellent shape ... greens and fairways very playable ... Great layout and pace of play was good ...

Bruce (Charlotte, NC)

06/12/2012

Greens were being aerated. Standing water in many locations on fairways and bunkers. No information about the condition of the course was shared prior to playing.

Steven (Palm Beach Gardens)

05/31/2012

Very good.

05/31/2012

New cart paths are on all holes, with bare dirt still along the paths, that doesn‘t affect play. Some bunkers have been filled in or made smaller. Green side bunkers have new sand. Some bunkers are still being rebuilt. The old style bermuda greens were not transitioned back to bermuda as much as the newer hybrids, but putted decent for this level of course. Best holes are #11 + #12. Most holes have housing. IC is near the bottom of the average MB courses, so it’s nothing special for group play.

Hugh (Saline, MI)

05/30/2012

Same as above. We had a foursome (two friends that live in MB) and caught the group in front of us by the second hole.

Jeff (Woodbridge VA)

05/16/2012

Interesting layout, very challenging but fair, the grill was excellent, good prices and food. I would have liked to know how difficult the course would be.

Walt

04/18/2012

A much better playing experience now that the cart paths have been fixed. The course is in good shape, and the staff is eager to please. Great rates for this time of year.

Carolyn (Greencastle, Ind.)

04/16/2012

A lot of ground under repair. The cart paths were being replaced and hard to get to tees.

Charles (Peabody, Mass.)

03/31/2012

Course was torn up, cart paths were being worked on.

Mary (Strathroy, Ontario)

03/01/2012

A lot of water.

Sean

02/25/2012

Shame on this course for even being open. I'm all for renovations but come on - piles of logs, bad cart paths, sand traps unplayable - get with it - avoid until this place gets its act in order.

Rick/Cynthia (Canton, Ohio)

12/02/2011

Poor shape; will not play here again.

Bob & Joan (Oshawa, Ontario)

11/02/2011

Poor cart path conditions.

John/Beverly (Seven Valleys, Penn.)

10/28/2011

I was surprised that we did not receive any type of briefing from the clubhouse staff or starter before we teed off. Some discussion of conditions, distance markers, landmarks would have been helpful.

Don/Gloria (Brookville, Penn.)

10/26/2011

Cart paths need a lot of work and golf carts need a lot of repairs. No brakes on the one we had.

Wayne (Freedom, Penn.)

08/30/2011

The course was in nice shape.

Brian (West Chester, Penn.)

08/12/2011

I don't think I would play the course again. The course was okay. The starter looked bored out of his mind. The ranger was non-existent. Considering the 30 other courses I have played in the area over the last few years, this is very much at the bottom. Lastly, the cart path ... let's put some money into a path that doesn't give its riders a headache after 2 holes.

Michael (Willowbrook, Ill.)

08/10/2011

Tee boxes needed attention. I know it is the summer but water was needed.

Andy (Simpsonville, S.C.)

07/11/2011

No coolers allowed and no beverage cart coming around, in July, at the beach. Worst of the four courses we played. Will never go back. Too many other, better choices.

Ken (Jackson, Mo.)

06/06/2011

The course is very scenic in certain areas. The water hazards provide very good boundaries and a challenge for a wayward shot. The cart paths are very, very rough though and that was a definite turn-off. Otherwise, the course was the middle pick of the three rounds we played.

Astor (Pleasant Garden, N.C.)

05/31/2011

We will not play there again until the course puts some money into the place. The cart paths are all but gone.

John (Harrisburg, Penn.)

05/23/2011

Was not my favorite after playing the first three courses on my trip.

Chris (Belmont, N.C.)

Repair the cart paths, and it will be a nice course! Great layout, and nice people all around.

Maria (Roslindale, Mass.)

M/M Denis (Rockland, Ontario)

04/19/2011

We liked the course and plan to return.

Stephen (Franksville, Wis.)

04/10/2011

I liked the course layout. The cart paths were in poor shape, not good on a cart path only day!

Glenn (Spartanburg, S.C.)

11/14/2010

Course was a disappointment. Fairways had been overwatered to germinated the grass seed which caused muddy shots, plugged balls and a general overall mess. Greens were not cut evenly which made putting a guess at best.

Brian (London, Ontario)

11/08/2010

Would not recommend this course. Will not play there again.

Arnold (Alpha, Ill.)

10/23/2010

Rough cart trails.

Nancy & Sean (Kirkland, Quebec)

10/20/2010

Course was in great shape, good challenge, bunkers placed well especially for left-handed players. Great value overall.

Edward (Cranberry Twp. Penn.)

09/13/2010

Course was well maintained & in fantastic shape - anyone would like to golf there.

Kevin (Bergenfield, N.J.)

08/31/2010

I like the course layout. Challeging but not too dificult.

Tarell (Plano, Tex.)

08/02/2010

Indigo Creek in Myrtle Beach was a terrible golf experience during our Myrtle Beach golf vacation. We recently played at 9:30 in the morning in late July. They had no water in the only TWO water buckets on the whole course and no beverage cart. The lady at the turn in the grill was a sweetheart and the bag boy was good, the rest of the staff was horrible. There had been rain off and on all week and they stated that the course did not drain well so it was cart path only. The course was wet, but we had played the day before on another course at 90 degrees and no rain since then, so to me it was a bad decision on their part. I believe in protecting the course so I am not going to argue, but how can you make us walk the course, then provide no water to drink. The pro acted like he couldn't give a damn. When you are golfing in Myrtle Beach, avoid Indigo Creek and your Myrtle Beach golf trip will be more enjoyable.

Thomas (Cocoa, Fla.)

06/06/2010

(Did not like) that carts were only allowed on fairway. Too many groups on course, not enough spacing out between groups, tees had markers broken, especially on the front nine. NO starter was available, we were being run by the cart attendants.

Roger (North Charleston, S.C.)

05/11/2010

Very nice course, good condition. Need more info about layout of holes distances to hazards, etc., off the tees. Lots of wildlife, beautiful place.

Paddy (Riverview, New Brunswick)

05/04/2010

My only comment is that your posted green fees rates on Internet and the fees at the course were very different! ($51.00 on Internet and $80.00 at course.)

Mike (Kingsport, Tenn.)

04/25/2010

(1) Golf attendants and/or starters were not friendly or helpful. When the first people you meet when arriving at a course are unfriendly and not helpful, it doesn't start the experience off on a good note. This really needs improvement. This will make us think twice about going back to Indigo.

Jim

David (Cicero, N.Y.)

Restricted to cart path only was difficult for older golfers.

Tom (Loudonville, N.Y.)

03/31/2010

In my humble opinion, one of the very best values in MB. Got off the plane at 12:30 and was teeing off at 1:30. Very accommodating. I've driven by it a hundred times over the years and assumed it would be forgettable ... Was I ever wrong!

Gary (Beacon Falls, Conn.)

03/20/2010

A lot of water hazards on couse, the attendant going around in the drink/snack cart made numerous passes. Excellent service.

10/27/2009

I did not like this course. I would not play this course if I had my choice. The attendant was quite rude to some of the group even though it was wet and there was not a lot of play. He was very unaccommodating!

Chris (Mechanicsville, Va.)

Course was shot with a little rain. teeboxes muddy, cartpaths destroyed. Layout pretty good though.

Donald

03/24/2009

Good course for the money. Starter was excellent; found a way to get us out there earlier. Pretty tight at times amongst houses. Finishing holes were less memorable than Indian Wells. Enjoyed the #1 handicap hole.

Matthew

02/26/2009

We had a tee time around 1pm and there ended up being a one hour delay due to frost in the morning. This pushed everyone back one hour and this backup caused play to be slow and we did not get the last few holes in. So, make you tee times early enough to account for this on any course. Course was in good shape with a few spotty greens. Cart path only this time of year.

Jessie (Orlando)

02/18/2009

Played January 12, 2009: Since I don't know what nosebleed means I would say why. If you are going to play a hole called nosebleed, I hope it isn't because you have to dive into some bottomless pool of water or if you don't make the green your playing partners get to punch you in the nose. With all of the other courses in the area the question comes to mind, why play this one? Sounds too painful.
