Golden Bear Golf Club at Indigo Run

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1992

Golden Bear Golf Club at Indigo Run: Neither spectacular nor overly plain, this is a very pleasant and well laid out course that epitomises much of Hilton Head golf. Nicklaus's design is both fair and challenging, depending on which tees you select. Tall pines and sturdy oaks line the fairways (along with much housing, which is kept at a discrete distance). There are plenty of water hazards along the way, good bunkering and even-paced greens that are appropriately sized for the hole in question. The two clockwise nine-hole loops are evenly balanced with no weak holes on either.
