Gary (Murrells Inlet, SC)


Greens were bad.

Thomas (Selkirk, NY)


Nice layout, fast greens, I will be back, loved playing there

Jon (Pampa, TX)


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.

Steve (Worcester, MA)


All holes were all good. You play there again. Very pleased

Paul (Chester, VA)


I would have liked to know the greens had been aerated recently. The starter was very friendly.

Donald (Norwich, NY)


The people were great, not rushed and very relaxed. Comfortable and very well maintained.

Michael (Andrews, NC)


First 3 holes are a little hard with all the water but will know next time.

Hugh (Saline, MI)


Staff were excellent

Frank (Jerseyville, ON)


Generally a nice layout.

Scott (Surfside Beach, SC)



Ann (Newmarket, ON)


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.

Graham (Raleigh, NC)


Very well maintained, very clean.

Robert (Syracuse, NY)


Hole layout signs on the tees would be very helpful as scorecard layouts just too small.

Mike (Bellefonte, PA)


Played twice before when very wet, great course when dry.

Doug (Beesley's Point, MD)


Starters very helpful and friendly.

Fred (Caledonia, MN)


Very good experience.

Susan (West Chester, PA)


Gentleman working in the pro shop was very friendly. Shop is very nice.

Mary (Cobleskill, NY)


Water hazards.

Joe (Ware, MA)



Dale (Beaver Bank, NS)


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

Michel (Chateauguay, QC)


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...

Mike (Conquer All Bank, NS)


Good condition, but wet as all the courses are this year.

James (Northport, NY)


Played four courses while in the Myrtle Beach area. Indian Wells was the best by far.

John (Andover, MA)


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!



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 $.

Graham (Stouffville, ON)


Marshals were very nice, but place of play was poor.

Jane (Carrollton, GA)


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).

Norlan (Spearman, TX)


(Liked the) layout of course.

John (Wyckoff, NJ)


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.

John (Mayodan, NC)


Great course made you think.

Jeff (Salisbury, MD)


This course was challenging but fun.

Paul (Red Lion, PA)


Nice course.

Dave (Oregon, WI)


Water carry

John (State College, PA)


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.

Tommy (Pittsboro, NC)


All was excellent however the starter was the best of the entire course.

Charles (Midlothian, VA)


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.

Brian (Charlotte, NC)


Marshalls and Starter were very friendly.

Francis (Prospect Park, PA)


Course is a challenge.

Sue (Naples, FL)


Cart paths were too bumpy to be comfortable... took away from an otherwise good experience.

Russell (Irmo, SC)


Played many times. Enjoy the course.

David (Pittsburgh, PA)


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.

David (Oak Ridge, TN)


Nice course.

John (Davidsville, PA)


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.

Bruce (Newmanstown, PA)


Neat course with some very tough holes and some easy ones. I wished I would have known how much water was on course.

Jeffrey (Great Mills, MD)


Nice course layout. Tough first couple holes. Greens were a little thin.

James (Calhoun, TN)


Good layout.

Eddie (Jacksonville, NC)



Mark (Raleigh, NC)





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.

Wayne (Chesapeake, VA)


Good value for the price.
