Indian Wells Golf Club near Myrtle Beach, S.C. serves up heaping helpings of thought-provoking holes
SURFSIDE BEACH, S.C. -- Indian Wells Golf Club has been egging on golfers since 1984, serving up heaping helpings of thought-provoking holes.
Designed by Gene Hamm, water is a frequent nemesis, with some huge trees showing up in a few places. The creativity is breathtaking, evoking grins on a few tee boxes. That's the case on no. 1, with a fairway that ends abruptly at water then sidles over to the right. Closer to the green, there is a huge tree obnoxiously planted in the middle of the fairway.
There are several more similar predicaments, including a ribbon of water that splits the 18th fairway down the middle, creating a conundrum for plotting a path to the green.
From start to finish, Indian Wells doesn't let up.
