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.

Old course

The course is a dinosaur. Not much effort if any to make it a nice course. The only thing going for the course it is cheap. Whispering Pines Same cost and is like a country club.

Don't Play now.

We liked the course layout but it eas in bad shape when we played in early May of 2022. Bare spots even in the fairways and some on the greens. Grass in the fairways was almost like hitting off concrete. If the course gets some water and the grass grows it would be a nice course to play.

Grass on the greens and fairways was just starting to come in so there were areas where the grass was thin.

The greens did run true .

Will play again next visit!

This was a quick unplanned business trip to Myrtle Beach so there was little time to book a couple of rounds. Luckily, we found an early tee time at Indigo one day.

We were paired with a couple of younger local players that were similar to my skill level and it was a pleasure playing with them (as you all know, the unknown pairings don't work out sometimes). They gave invaluable local based information about good places to eat near Murrells Inlet!

Additionally, they shared lots of information about the course and gave insight regarding its condition and history. The sand traps had not been raked (some in a while) but the sand was very playable the couple of times I found one. The tee boxes, fairways and greens we all in good shape and despite the dense housing in some spots, it felt like we were on a much more remote course. In the Charlotte, NC area, many courses seem to have developed a fear of trees (and miscellaneous shrubbery) and they are removing far too much greenery in the interest in speeding up play. Indigo has just the right amount of trees and the surrounding homes have very well maintained yards filled with growth so it felt much more comfortable than might be expected.

Upon our arrival, the golf attendant was very helpful, courteous, professional and seemed genuinely grateful for the couple of dollars we gave him for his assistance. The clubhouse had all the necessary libations and also had real sugar Sundrop and Cheerwine in the bottle for just two bucks. Get one or the other (or both!) if you have never had one.

Obviously it is not like some of the courses for $85 or more that can be found in the Myrtle Beach area but it was priced just right. So if you love the game and playing some interesting holes (and you are not a golf snob), this is certainly a course worthy of a try.

Nice and getting better

The course has improved since last year. I could tell they were working hard to improve the fairways and especially the greens. I enjoyed the layout, challenging and reachable for a senior.
