Great Course!

Tee time availability and relative value for the price is what keeps us coming back to Indian Bayou. Conditions were very good even when they had been getting a ton of rain the days and weeks before. Staff is very welcoming and friendly. Consistently great experience.

Great Condition

My brother-in-law and I got a tee time around noon. We were able to play in just under 3 hours. The course is in great condition. The greens roll very true - not too fast and not too slow. The staff is very friendly and we had a great time.

We will definitely be back!

Indian Bayou Golf Club

There were thunderstorms the night before so most of the holes were cart path only. I was disappointed that the practice range was closed. But what do you expect after the rain we got. Not your fault.

The landing areas for drives were ok and except for a few holes, there was some roll. The greens were a little slow but were true.

I would like to play again when the fairways are drier.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Although the course was saturated from a lot of rain, and it was cart path only, the pace of play was fine. I thought the course was in very good shape. Course and pro shop staff were very personable and helpful. The next time I'm in Destin, I will definitely be playing this course again.
