Length 6747 yards
Slope 140
Rating 72.9

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.

Cross off your list

The course fairways need work. Same with the greens. Even for March, the course should have been in better condition. Bathroom located inconveniently at 8th hole and the normal placement of 13th hole. The 19th hole offered inexpensive drinks and good food. Friendly staff and 19th hole were the best of the course. Sorry to have this course crossed off my list because I like the layout.

Not great

Ok layout - Very wet, sloppy conditions - no grass to speak of in fairways. Greens ok, very slow and inconsistent. No pro shop in which to purchase accessories- no ball washers on course, which are necessary when you play 18 holes in muck.

Stay away!

I'm a mid handicap player who played this course 25 years ago. It was a terrific course then, but now....I'm not a person who normally 'flames' any kind of online product but, I have to say, this course is in awful shape. I know they replaced their greens last year and, supposedly, they're replacing their bunkers, but my complaints go 'way past that. This course should've been over-seeded years ago but, alas, they didn't. It's been well over a month since this area got significant rain, but every drive plugged in the fairway, and after cleaning my ball could not find any grass to hit off. I played with two members, and they told me that even in the summer the locals move their ball from the fairway to the rough so they have some grass to hit off.

I got a 'Hot Deal" from GolfNow for $37. and feel that if I'd paid $20. I still wouldn't have been very happy. The thing that kills me is that the place was packed today (which is great) but how much nicer would it have been if there were grass fairways, bunkers with sand instead of mud, and greens that were 'readable'. Tough to putt when they're beige.

I apologize for my honesty. I'm not proud of this review.

Average course,bunkers need serious attention

Average course needs little more TLC and bunkers need a good bit of help.$35 is a fair price but I wouldn't see fit paying more until everything is up to date

Fun to play

Played on Christmas Day and was a lot of fun. Course layout is good. There are some challenging holes and some good scenery. You can tell the greens were redone, but they did a nice job restoring them. I would definitely play here again

Indigo Creek

Had a great round at Indigo,staff very friendly and course has in pretty good shape for the season. The course is layed out nicely with a good mix of dog legs and water hazards and rolls in the fairways. We will most certainly be back.

Nice layout

This course is conveniently located to where I stay in Surfside Beach. The course layout is good and challenging enough for someone who only plays 20 rounds a year.
It is November golf where over seeding has occurred and there has been a fair bit of rain. A number of wet spots on the course. The greens were in great shape and ran true.

Tight but fair

Played Indigo Creek in a steady wind, which made the tight fairways tough to hit. The greens are on the smaller side, so that was tough also. Course is in good condition although the greens were a little slow. All in all, a good value and fun place to play.

Good value

Once we got onto the course it was a decent track and value for your money. However teeing off was delayed by 30 minutes due to no carts, but once we got out there pace of play was fine.

Tight but fair

Nice course since the greens have been replaced. Everyone was friendly and helpful. A little tight in areas so keep you shots on target. Greens tend to be a bit small from what I'm used to. Had the course to ourselves on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
