Pick another course.

Very wet conditions as expected with amount of rain lately. This place does not drain at all and wet would be an understatement. Swamp is what this was and since the staff here know it does not drain they could at least give an honest heads up before taking your money. Maintenance workers keep cutting grass with their mowers while you are hitting. I'm not exaggerating when I say they are cutting within 30 feet of you and dont even blink that you are there. Green aeration advisory on door when you walk up, no advisory over phone when making tee time. Spend $20 more and play elsewhere.

Day 4 2017 Myrtle Beach World Amateur

Drew Indian Wells again as my last day (4) of the Myrtle Beach World Amateur.

The course was wet...very wet. Considering how wet it was, the conditioning was pretty good. Indian Wells is not a high end daily fee course so it is not meticulously manicured but still looked good. Greens were in good shape, did not see any really bad spots in the fairways, some tee boxes were not in best of shape probably due to lack of circulation of air by having so many trees surrounding the tee box.

The staff there is very friendly and helpful.

Don't grip and rip unless you get paid to play!

From playing quite a few courses in the area, by far your best value and most pleasant experience on the south end of the strand. Staff from beginning of the round until the end are more than welcoming and engaging. Glad you're here kind of feel. Course rewards a smarter approach and leave the big stick in your bag mentality. Some greens are tight yet not impossible to "get up and down". If your shot loves to sniff out the wet landings be cautious though. We will spend more of our early weekday mornings here.

Thinking man's course with water!

This course featured many doglegs, lay ups and thought to navigate around the course (which I liked). Not overly long it required strategic thinking to put yourself in the best position to score. Wayward shots were penalized, so a premium on accuracy is rewarded.

I really enjoyed this course from the friendly staff to course conditions. Beautiful visuals.

I had a morning tee time (8:42) and was a single that joined a twosome. The staff from checkin to the starter was friendly and helpful. I loosened up on the driving range which was in good shape. Putting greens were equally nice (looks like they started aerating the greens on this day) Starter had groups moving nicely starting on the 1st and 10th holes. I found the course very visually pleasing, just beautiful. Pace was great. Definitely several very challenging holes and several pretty easy holes. Great time, would play here again.
