Indian Wells Golf Club is one of the Myrtle Beach area’s hidden gems, located on the southern half of the Grand Strand. Amidst a number of modern layouts, it is something of an old soul, featuring an old-school, classic-looking course that places a premium on shot making over brute force.
Originally designed by renowned architect Gene Hamm, Indian Wells has caught the eye of the Myrtle Beach golf community, earning the 2004 Golf Course of the Year award and the Customer Service and Hospitality honor by local golf organizations.
Both the appearance and layout of Indian Wells Golf Club have made a lasting impression on golfers, whose shot-making skills are put to the test by this 18-hole layout that offers plenty of high risk-reward opportunities.
Built in the tradition of U.S. Open-style courses, Indian Wells provides some of the toughest holes in the Grand Strand, including the No. 18 finishing hole, which appears on the Myrtle Beach “Dream 18” as one of the most scenic and difficult in the area.
“A nice setup at an affordable price, easy to find…what more can a vacation traveler want? Course was in good shape, some challenging holes, with some pretty scenery too.” – Dave Kentucky
My son and I played a round here during our vacation in Myrtle Beach. We’ll be back. Staff was very friendly. Course was in great shape and it’s a challenge, but not an overwhelming challenge. It felt like I was at my hometown course because everyone was friendly.” – Bud Maryland
