Wendy (Little Britain , ON)


Course was in great condition. Starter was great and it was nice to know the Marshall was doing his job. Slow foursome ahead of us was told to speed up play!! Course is challenging (lots of water) and pretty!

Vincent (Midlothian , VA)


The greens were good as well as the fairways. Pro shop was fully engaged in providing a great experience. Grill staff made a great sandwich.

Drew (Nunda, NY)

Bill (Windber, PA)


Awesome conditions for February. Water in play on 14 of 18 holes. She’s no pushover

Robert (New Rochelle , NY)

Jim (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Nice course close to home for me Some tight fairways and a lot of water Will be returning

Steven (Murrells Inlet, SC)


The course is really challenging. Tough but fair. Staff really professional and accommodating. Everything you need to have a great day playing golf is here. I would highly recommend this course

Drew (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Everyone was so pleasant from start to finish. Cart was in great shape and considering the Myrtle Beach winter we had, course was in great shape.

Fred (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Being a "local" here in this area since 2003, I've had the opportunity to play many courses up and down the Grand Strand. Indian Wells has, and continues to be, one of the most challenging courses in the area. Starting off right away with Hole #1 (Par 5), you set the tone for the round with your accuracy. Each hole thereafter, requires your attention to placing the shots in the best spot. As you go through the back 9, Hole #15 appears before you (Par 5) and you again have to be ready to put the ball in the right spot. The final two holes require additional placement accuracy and the last hole (even though they have removed my favorite tree by the water) is extremely challenging. Anyone visiting the Grand Strand area I would highly recommend you make it a point to try out Indian Wells. You won't be disappointed!

Jerry (Manassas, VA)


Nice course. Extremely friendly staff. Will return.

Timothy (Surfside Beach, SC)


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.

Paul (Georgetown, KY)


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.

Dennis (Colfax, NC)


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.

Andy (Lancaster , Ohio)


The course was in great condition for this time of year. Great staff, starter, and ranger.

Ken (Maytown, PA)


Well maintained. Challenging water holes and long par 3's. Great day



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.

Gary (Englewood,NJ)


Course in goo condition; like the set up.

Stephan (East Rockaway,NY)


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.

Randall (Davison, MI)


The course is in great shape! It was a pleasure to play and we will be back!!



Some tee boxes were iffy -



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.

Tony (Upper Sandusky,OH)


Course was in great condition for January staff was great



great track

William (Elma, NY)


course was in great. challenging holes,



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.

Pete (Moseley, VA)


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!

Allan (Kernersville, NC)


Well kept competitive clean playable

Bart (Portsmouth, NH)


the staff was very efficient. the course was in ok shape.

Richard (Norristown, PA)


Staff - Very friendly and knowledgeable..Hole 9 dog to the right 2nd shot over water...I made 3.

Stephen (Scotia, NY)


Very friendly staff, clean/neat clubhouse. Impressed with the condition of the greens.

Paul (Kitchener, ON)


Right amount of risk and reward.



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.

Dwayne (Lexington, NC)


Very good.

Mark (Boerne, TX)


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.

William (Hamburg, NY)


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!!!!

Patti (Franklinton, NC)


Great greens.

Greg (Fishers, IN)


Staff was friendly other than maintenance worker who was mowing. Overall great experience, played 2x in week we were in town.

Anthony (Hopewell, VA)


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.

Scott (Cambridge, ON)


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.

Pat (Sicklerville, NJ)


Service was great. Greens were horrible, very long

William (Southampton, MA)


Nice layout

Delton (Spartanburg, SC)


Challenging course. Requires some precision and accurate shot making. The staff was very friendly. The course was in great shape overall.

Robert (King's Park, NY)


Good course.

Terry (Crescent, PA)


Courses layout good with harder holes to start....water hazards make for interesting round!!!!

Richard (Saratoga Springs, NY)


Staff was great.

Charles (Orange Park, FL)


Nice track, great customer service, good follow up by staff.

Andy (Marietta, GA)


A course you must manage in terms of shots to location, verses simply hitting long.

Pat (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Staff was very friendly and service oriented but the course needs work especially the greens.

James (Summerville, SC)


Greens were not in good shape. Food was good and staff was friendly.
