Oak trees and waterways shape the scenery at Indigo Creek Golf Club, which sculpts a 6,747 yard layout through the heart of Carolina Lowcountry—just a stone's throw south of Myrtle Beach. Pine trees also fleck the bermuda grass fairways, their spindly trunks impeding the passage of errant golf balls. Throughout the round, golfers should keep their eyes out for wildlife, so as not to miss a photo op or the territorial heron that mistake golf balls for lost eggs.

Whispering Pines Golf Course is set back just minutes from the beach and nestled among towering pines and mature hardwoods. From the first tee, golfers descend into the serene grounds as drives trace narrow fairways past tall stands of trees that give way to hidden rough, carefully placed lakes, and several feral golf carts that hurriedly scurry back under cover. Though the course is designed to be enjoyable for golfers of all abilities, a higher-than-average slope and handicap rating from the back tees signal a test for more-experienced players. Many holes place an added emphasis on short-game accuracy, as golfers must thread approach shots through an array of bunkers before sinking putts on undulated TifEagle Bermuda grass greens that serve as homage to the architect’s beloved bean-bag chairs. A certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, the course is flush with wildlife, from squirrels and foxes who bark out polite applause to indifferent heron, stirred only by a hole-in-one or a golf bag stuffed with anchovies.
