Although I have lived in the area for years I never seriously played golf until the summer of 2022.. This is a very nice course with enough challenges to hold my attention. The greens and fairways were in very good condition. The staff in the Pro Shop was very friendly and helpful. The deer were nice to see although Jekyll Island has lots of them. Six point buck and two doe! I would definitely play this one again!
I've played here many times. Overall, it's a great place to play. No rush this afternoon as it was fairly open. Course conditions were as expected. Mostly pretty good with some rough areas. Greens were okay to putt if the guy putting was a little better. 😂😂 Wish they could cut some of the dense underbrush and get some airflow on the holes. That would help with conditions and pace of play on busier days. Come down and play Jekyll Island!! You'll enjoy the experience!
pine lakes was cart path only due to 2 inches of rain that night. Couse was still very playable and in great shape.People are great they do not hit up on you and we always see deer. Staff was accomadating they had a huge group ahead of us and let us go first so we would not be behind them.great caring people.
Great course and practice areas. Course was very well maintained. Proshop stagg was very nice and helpful. If you are in the area and looking to play a round or two, don't pass this one up.
An all-time favorite! (Not maintaining Bunkers however)
Have traveled to play on Jekyll for the past 30 years! Indian Mound is my favorite of the 3 courses. You can’t beat the peacefulness of playing on Indian Mound… no houses and surrounded by wildlife! I do however have one major grip from my recent visit….THEY ARE NOT Maintaining the Sand Traps as they once did! Lots of Grass growing in many of them. Clubhouse staff used lack of help and wet weather as the excuse however much of theses grasses were at least 2 months old so rain is no excuse! Disappointing that nobody there seems to care enough to solve this issue!
If Only The Back Nine Rivaled the Front
The layout of the entire course was outstanding with generous landing areas and fair sized greens. Unlike the front nine which was in near perfect conditions despite the rain shower prior to our round, the back nine was a tad unkempt. Noticeably more weeds, worn and unmowed greens on the back made it difficult to make putts.
Indian mound at Jekyll island
Biggest complaint is the layout. Almost every hole is the same typical thing you’d expect. Not a lot of uniqueness to this course. Lots of straight away par 4’s. There’s one unique par 4 that introduces a short lay up or long water carry. But other than that the holes are very straight forward. Well worth the hot deal though. Only had to pay $35 and there was no one in front or me. Was able to play however I wanted.
The staff, course layout, & surroundings were Amazing! But the course conditions for a property maintained by the state was not up to par. This could be an amazing golf destination, but it needs closer attention to the grounds!
Good for the money
Played one the other courses on this complex last year and enjoyed it. This course got good reviews and seemed to have more history behind it. We liked the layout and with the GolfNow discount it was a good choice for our group. Generous fairways, fair distance from the white tees, greens in good shape.
Beautiful course, excellent layout
My wife and I enjoyed play at Indian Mounds. It is a beautiful, manicured course with gentle rolling fairways surrounded by forested areas. Some work is needed on tee boxes. Hoping to play again on our next visit.
Great course, great value, just slow pace of play
We were very happy about the quality of the course and the layout. The only problem, was that there were two large parties in front of us. A group of six, and a group of five, and a group of four. The large groups played very slowly and consequently there were at least six groups behind them they had to constantly wait for them to progress. We never saw a course Marshall during our 18 holes and if there had been one driving about, they could’ve speeded up the groups. I would still return for another round, but if this was a recurring theme, then I would not waste my time and money.
Wow was that disappointing.
Other reviews talked about how much progress the course had made. Must have been a goat pasture once upon a time because it was only missing the four legged friends. From tee to green as much weeds and bare spots as grass. The bunkers were filled with shell fragments. May be quaint to use the sand directly from the local beaches, but sifting it first would save the scratches from the clubs. Clubhouse guys were straight forward but could have used some Southern charm. Starter seemed worried about getting folks out fast and it showed as we waited 3 pairings deep on most holes and at least 2 on every hole. Never saw a ranger once. Beverage cart came by once. Grueling 5 hour round, that didn’t have to be that way. The difficulty of the course should allow for an easy 3 1/2 to 4 hour pace. Usually don’t mind waiting for golf, but this course wasn’t worth it.
Course is pretty. However not particularly challenging. Fairways in poor shape and greens not great.
