Holes 18
Type Public
Style Woodland
Par 72
Length 7014 yards
Slope 132
Rating 73.7

Jack Nicklaus designed the golf course at the Golden Bear Golf Club at Indigo Run. The 18-hole, public course is touted as having one of the best layouts in the area. The par-72 course offers 7,014 yards of challenging and fun golf. Golden Bear Golf Club at Indigo Run's design emphasizes strategy rather than power. Sand and water hazards add interest to the course. In addition to providing a great game of golf, the course also has picturesque scenery with the many oaks and pines that snake though the course. It has been named one of America's Top 100 Courses priced under $100.

Fun challenging course

Fairways, greens and traps were in very good condition. Lots of doglegs and occasional hidden water trouble near the greens, so with no GPS or maps to show the way, you can get surprised if it's your first time playing. Fortunately we were playing with a retired teaching pro who had played the course several times and could provide help. Nice Nicklaus design and a good value. We'll be back.

Conditions right off the fairway need work. Maybe the grass just hasn’t grown in yet.. greens were good not great. Some really nice holes. Great course for average weekend players, challenging yet fair. Staff was incredibly nice and welcoming.
