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.

Good course for the money. Bunkers were a little rough and the greens needed some cosmetic work but they played fine. The fairways were really good and the course was just the right amount of challenging. The staff was very very friendly and interactive. Any issue I had could easily be explained by the fact that they were short staffed due to Covid such as no beverage cart or marshal, which is out of their control. Would definitely return next time I'm in town.

Did you fire the maintenance staff?

First things first; staff was cordial and got us on the course ahead of our tee time. There was no cart/bag staff, starter or marshals on the course. No beverage cart either.

Now for the rest: Course is not in great shape. Greens had not been cut in a while and were comparable to worn out shag carpet with bare spots, diseased areas and no apparent maintenance or upkeep. Bunkers had limited sand and grass was growing more than on the greens and in the fairways!

Fairways were thin with lots of weed issues. Course was very wet and is not draining well. Lots of puddling and casual water for a sand based course.

With all the choices in Myrtle Beach, I'll be skipping this one until the course conditions improve.

JUST TERRIBLE

Where to begin- we came down for the long weekend and our favorite course Indian Wells is closed permanently. So we went across the street to Indigo. We hadn't played there in about 10 years. No Pro Shop-just a counter to check in. Barely a menu for food? Course is awful. Greens are completely ruined. The group ahead of us told me they replaced the greens less than 2 years ago. Either a mgt and money issue or both? Course dry and brown. No beverage cart. So many other choices in this town to play. This place may go under soon from the looks of it.

Once a gem....now horrible

We played and were very disappointed in the condition. The course is in horrible shape and greens are almost unplayable. We played because they closed it down to repair the greens after the freeze of 2019. The course management has let this once well maintained course slip to one of the worst in the area. What a shame....we will not be back here unless it improves dramatically.

Course is absolutely fantastic. Pace was awesome. Only down thing was the lady running the food/booze counter was not friendly. That section was closed but I just wanted to use the washroom. I paid for my golf so I figured I could use the washroom.

Enjoyable Golf!

For HALF the price of a course we played yesterday, we played a more enjoyable round of golf today at Indigo Creek! Fairways were in great shape. Greens, not so much, but they are working on them. Layout is terrific!

Just Average

Unfortunately cart path only, but to be expected with the recent weather. Course conditions overall were average.Tees were okay, some greens were in bad shape with some type of seed/fertilizer mix piled in spots. Fairways and rough I suppose are still dormant so not much to expect there.Hopefully conditions improve when heat arrives. GolfNow deal was very good.

Golf Outing

We played the first nine with a little waiting. It had rained heavy the night before, so it was cart path only. It rained is out on the last nine. Got rain check.
