Set in the heart of the Grand Strand's Lowcountry plantation area, Indigo Creek is laid out through large oaks and flowing creeks, especially the back nine, though the views have been somewhat spoiled by housing. The course is built over an old rice and indigo plantation with some nice elevation changes, lakes, waste bunkers and undulating greens. It's a Willard Byrd design, with Bermuda greens and a slope rating of 128.

Indigo Creek is another of those Myrtle Beach-area courses that fell into a disreputable state only to be saved by a new ownership group. One golfer who'd had a bad experience there described it after the refurbishment as the best-conditioned course in Myrtle Beach.

Indigo Creek isn't overly long at 6,744 yards (the shortest of its four sets of tees shortens to 5,921. It is an exciting course with an significant number of doglegs, bunkers and water. The back nine is set among giant oaks and gently flowing creeks.

Great Course For The $

Great day with my brother in law. Snack bar lady was awesome, starter was awesome, and the course was awesome for the price. Dont expect it to be a $100+ course, but for the price it cant be beat. Tee boxes were more than acceptable, most of the fairways were in very good condition, and the greens were very quick and pretty good. Dont go by the bad reviews online. Those came from a time when all the courses struggled through hurricanes and a devastating winter. This course has made a great recovery.

Friendly staff

The minute you pull up to the bag drop you know you’re going to enjoy the round. The starter goes right to your trunk before you even have a chance to pop it open he is ready to pull your bag out and set you up. Very friendly, explains where you have to go to check in. By the time you come back he has your bag strapped in and ready to go.
Course in fair condition. Considering area just had a hurricane.
Have played this course before and has been in very good condition. Recently moved into this area and will continue to play here.

Challenging Day

We played on a day with intermittent thunderstorms, so we were drenched a few times, but an 80-plus degree day meant high humidity and few souls on the course. Even with rumbles of thunder the course stayed open, although a few times we wondered about our sanity.

It is an interesting layout and pretty well maintained, although with sudden downpours, lasting 5-10 minutes, there were puddles, etc. and traps were a mess. No GOS or other amenities, just simple golf spread through a housing development.

Disappointing there are no water stations on course, especially in August! Well marked course, just without the bells and whistles you might find at more expensive spots in Murrells Inlet area.

Not a great experience

Cart broke down in the middle of the round between 12 and 13 and took the staff 30min to get a replacement cart which was not fun. Also there was no water or drinks cart on the course for my round in the swelteringly August heat.

Nice course for the money

Nice. course for a vacation round of golf. Green were a tad slow and a couple had a couple of bad places but they rolled true. For the most part the fairways were good. One negative is the sand traps. They were hard and not raked. Improvement to traps would definitely add to the course

Worst in MB

I’m not a fussy golfer but this course was bone dry. I didn’t see much green. The greens were burned out. When I checked in in the pro shop I was told to grab a cart and head out to one when I was ready. Not likely to return.

Great staff & Great Course

My father in-law and I are in town for a family reunion and it's the first time we have golfed together. The staff was friendly and informative. The sweet tea was awesome and the course was great. It was challenging enough for him (scratch golfer), but not too tough for me (Newer golfer). Thank you for making this trip great for us.

Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recovery the fairways. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game. Thank you for playing Indigo Creek Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Best shape since in joined in 2015

Did a lot of work to improve the course recently including fertilizing the fairways, adding pine straw under trees and bushes and added sand to numerous bunkers. The poa annua problem is gone from the greens and almost all the fairways are in good shape. Great place to play especially if you can get a good rate online.

Indigo Creek Conditions

As a lot of you know, Indigo Creek GC is one of the nicest golf course layouts in the Murrells Inlet, SC area. In the past years our conditions have not been up to par. You will be pleased to know that there have been many improvements done in the last few months. Conditions have improved tremendously. I know you will be pleasantly surprised. Through hard work of the Indigo Creek GC management and staff, the course is in the best shape it has been in for many years. It's worth playing again!

This course could be better. Needs just a little improvements.

Older Course but worth the play

You could tell this was an older course but it was kept in pretty good shape. There are several holes with waste areas so playing the first time is tough if no one in your group has been there before. Greens were in good shape and you will probably use many clubs in your bag.

Indigo Creek

The tees, fairways and greens were in good condition but the greens played extremely slow. I think they must have put speed governors on all the golf carts - we could have finished a half-hour earlier if the carts went more than 8 mph. The sand traps were in poor condition - lots of weeds and some leftover fireworks from the 4th of July.
