The Golden Bear Club At Indigo Run
This course was great to play on.
The course was very dry compared to previous times.

This course is an excellent play on the island. We play it every year. This year (2014) the greens were great. Pace of play is good we played in 3 1/2 hours in the afternoon . Will be back next year.

It was our first time playing this course. Staff was very friendly, conditions were very good, pace of play was good, and difficulty of course was a very good challenge for average golfers. We had a great time.

Great course layout--- BEST deal on the ISland!
Best deal on the Island.
Greens rolled great. Completely healed from aerification.
Spoke with the superintendent july 8th and was told they would top dress on the 10th so it might take a few days to grow through.
I've always liked this layout!

Great Value for a beautiful course. Tucked in a nice community in the middle of HH island. Would definitely play there again

Nice course, slow play
Had an 8:24 tee time but got out 30 min late because an earlier group was running late?? Couse was in good condition but pace of play was way too slow for a Thursday morning. Great hot dog and saw the beverage cart several times. All in all not too bad, just wish the staff would have addressed the slow play issue they were made aware of.

It is a gem of a course
Great course, very friendly and courteous staff, and beautiful layout. Also plentiful shade provided by amazing tree lines. Plan to play this course when you come to Hilton head .

Really mixed feelings on this...
Was recommended this course by a friend. Have only positive things to say about the facilities. Grass on the range was a little sparse, but nothing uncommon for a resort course. Clubhouse was nice, people were great and friendly.
The course was in good shape in my opinion for the most part. Fairways and tee boxes were great. Greens were good for 95% of the course. Couple greens had some areas under repair and some spots where there were bare spots, but the pins weren't in those areas, so it wasn't an issue.
As others have commented recently, the greens were really slow though. The group I was paired with all commented how hard it was to get the ball to the hole and then when you would, all of a sudden you're going 5-6 ft past it. I guess the consistency of the greens seems to be lacking.
Now about the layout. I was not a big fan of it. It's like if you drive the ball 250+, the course is set up to hit woods or irons off the tees. I had 5-6 really good tee shots that were running through the fairway into a bunker at 260-275 that were struck down the middle. TONS of doglegs where you're penalized for being a good ball striker with the driver.
Also, someone else has commented on the greens and the putts. I couldn't believe how many STRAIGHT putts there were. I don't know if it was the pins today or what, but I have never had so many blah putts in my life. I literally was 8 for 10 from 5-12 ft.
Nice place, great service and staff. I paid $83 and I wouldn't do it again. If I were wanting to score well, I would probably hit my driver 5 times to make sure I wasn't penalized for drives. You literally could tee off with a 3 iron and shoot in the low 70's from the blue tees as a single digit handicap.
