Kevin (Lewisville, N.C.)


Good experience, except we started on 10th tee, everything was fine until we came around to the 1st tee for our second 9. Waited on tee at least 25 minutes behind 4 groups. No starter to be found. Very slow second 9. Nice course, would recommend.

Andy (Simpsonville, S.C.)


GPS on the carts was very good.

Patti (Franklinton, N.C.)


Very good.

Andy (Roanoke, Va.)


I liked the helpful and friendly workers. Also, the course was nice. I usually play better than my score but I still had a great time in spite of my score.

Jimmy (Montgomery, Ala.)


(Would like to have had a) better course map.

Astor (Pleasant Garden, N.C.)


Having played there before, we did not remember all the water.

William (Madison, Ala.)


Nice course.

Bill (Boston, Mass.)


Tough, fun course. Have to use your head on a lot of holes. Water comes into play on 14 holes.

Maria (Roslindale, Mass.)


Very good course with challenging holes.

Gene (Raleigh, N.C.)


Very nice course. Fun to play!

M/M (Rockland, Ontario)


The course is a bit difficult for players with a higher handicap.

Murray (Guelph, Ontario)


Excellent reception, excellent course.

J.P.B. (Bethlehem, Penn.)


My buddy and I played it in March 2010, while killing time for our flight. Didn't expect much upon arrival, but was very shocked at the bang for the buck. Course was in great condition. Only negative comment would be the pro shop and restaurant area are very outdated. Other than that it was awesome. We have this course listed to play this November as our first course upon arrival.

Arnold (Alpha, Ill.)


Water and slick greens.

Andre (Ste-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec)


I will make it short: i want to play it again.

Benjamin (Nottingham, Md.)


Course was a great design; the greens just were very, very slow. I enjoyed the course, club house, and all the employees were great. Would definitely play again with hopes the greens are in a little better shape, speed wise.

Mark (Fletcher, N.C.)


Indian Wells is definitely a must play, however, bring your A game. This is one of the more difficult courses I have played at MB. A lot has to do with lack of course knowledge, but they do give you a pretty good GPS system in the cart which has a good course layout on it. The staff was very friendly as well. I will try this one again next year.

Laurence (Sewell, N.J.)


Nice conditions. The course has a couple of very interesting holes, lots of water, not always in play. The ranger was helpful in getting a slow group to let us play through.

Ron (Cedar Lake, Ind.)


Enjoyed, played before will play again.

Stephen (Estero, Fla.)


Greens were too slow.

Robert (Lunenburg, Mass.)


They also went out of their way to help us out for our first round of the week. Another flight change (same person) and they were able to fit us in and make the first day of our trip very enjoyable.

Larry (Sault Ste Marie, Ontario)


Would have liked to have known that there were so many holes with water in play.

Timothy (Upton, Mass.)


Nice course that plays easy. Starter was a little gruff but was dealing with a frost delay and overbooking caused a backup.



Mark (Spencerport, N.Y.)


My first time ever having a below average starter (rude). It rained on the back nine but that is what it is.

Phillip (Tijeras, N.M.)



Glen (Bohemia, N.Y.)


Probably my favorite course in Myrtle, the GPS makes golf more enjoyable.

Daniel (Montreal, Quebec)


This is a place to play very often.

Trent (Dover, Fla.)


I liked #18, especially with a tree in front of the green.



Played early, no delays.

David (Brampton, Ontario)


Played Sept. 10, 2008: The members I was playing with were very friendly and outgoing and made my golf experience at Indian Wells absolutely superior.

Warren (Center Harbor, N.H.)


Played Oct. 29, 2008: Thanks, had a great time.

Richard (Six Stapp, Va.)


Played May 27, 2008: Indian Wells was a pleasant course to play. We played with the course's superintendent, and he was a pleasure.
