Indian Wells Golf Club near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Indian Wells Golf Club is located right off Highway 17 in Surfside Beach, S.C. about five miles south of Myrtle Beach. It's a Gene Hamm design from 1984 that, while short for today's standards at 6,624 yards from the championship tees, guards itself with plenty of trickery, and the par 3s are all pretty long from the tips, with two over 190 yards.

Trees are well-placed and often a force to be reckoned with, especially on the golf course's four par-5 holes. The par-4 18th requires deft tee shot placement and an approach shot that must maneuver past a tall Carolina pine tree. Water is also in play on 14 holes. It can be partially blind from the tee box, so consult the course GPS in your golf cart.

Brandon Tucker is the Sr. Managing Editor for GolfPass and was the founding editor of Golf Advisor in 2014, he was the managing editor for Golf Channel Digital's Courses & Travel. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and nearly 600 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.
