Indian bayou golf review

Course was in great shape. Never had a bad lie in fairway and greens were in excellent condition. Most par 4s had a dog leg one way or the other but a straight drive was good in most cases. Course was fun to play and I would recommend to all level of golfers

Very Nice and challenging

We enjoyed our round. Course is in very good shape compared to some of the others in the area that are not in very good shape. A lot of holes with different character and it’s a good piece of property closer to Destin.

Wonderful course

Really enjoyed the course; fairways were excellent ball sets up nice for your next shot. Greens were in great shape, not to fast or slow. When putting you always got a true and smooth roll to the cup. Look forward to play it again when I’m in town.

June golf outing

Pace of play was a little slow but I did not mind since I had my wife riding along. Greens and fairways were in great shape and cart girl was very sweet.
