The front nine is literally unplayable. Greens and fairways are in bad shape.. It is great lay out and it’s fun playing by the coast but it is in poor shape. The back nine is in great shape. It’s like 2 different courses.

Horrific greens and fairways

The fairways on some holes are unplayable unless you like playing on dirt and mud. The greens were made of sand,The vending lady wasn’t there all day there was no way to buy any drinks or food. The good thing was the ball cleaners that’s it.

Finally out

Course was in pretty good shape. We have had plenty of rain lately, but course was dry and able to drive on. There are plenty of spots that have no grass probably due to low area and tide.

Decent but not great.

Was wet. Fairways were beat up. Pace of play was poor, ranger was out but never moved the multiple ball hitting slower than molasses, poor playing twosome in front of us. I joined a threesome at 15.

I liked it!

I gave it a 4 star because it could use some work on the fairways. I think the salt water around the course makes it hard for them to maintain it but it does get kind of bare in places. The greens were fair and the layout was good. I would definitely go back. It’s worth the price for sure!

Nice day for golf!

The only reason I didn’t give all excellent is the condition of some of the fairways as they have no grass due to high tide situations. The greens roll very true and with some speed to them.

Windy weather
Used cart

Slow & Squishy

Course obviously has a drainage problem as we had to endure "cartpath only" throughout the entire 18 holes. And even then we had to be careful where we stepped as mindfields of squishy ground would block the pathway to our ball. All of this, along with strong winds, led to pace of play of over 5 hours.

One plus were the greens - most were in excellent shape except 18 which had numerous fungal patches near the fringes.

The reason I'm recommending this to friends is the GolfNow price and the hope that one day the course will dry out enough to encourage normal play and cart usage.

Sloooow

The reason for the bad rating is that the pace of play was very bad even for a Friday. The starter could of made a huge difference in the situation by grouping up twosomes to make foursomes. Having twosomes mixed with foursomes and add in a threesome or two for good luck, and you will have multiple groups waiting on the same tee box on almost all the holes. The fairways were really bad in some places but that’s Bayou! I like the greens and the majority of the fairways that don’t get nailed every high tide!

Fairways suck

Greens are pretty good , run about 11 or 12. The fairways on many holes are grassless in every place that the tide has covered them with brine water especially 1, 3, 6.
