Greens are good

Title says it all. Greens are in good shape but the rest of the course is trash. Lots of flood damage in what could be a fun course. Bunkers were also like playing off a parking lot.

Hello, Joe8012694. Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We with the recent rain we are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recover the fairways and greens from the water on the course. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Bayou Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

Great place, great staff.

We play this course a few times a year. They are very supportive of Junior players and we always have an enjoyable experience at Bayou. Good people here.

The greens are always in great shape year round. Lots of undulation and they run faster than most public courses.

Tough Track

Today’s winds were around 20-25 mph, there is so much water in the front 9 it’s pretty crazy!! Greens are in very good shape and very challenging!! I shot 86 today from the blues and hit the ball very well in today’s conditions!!
A very challenging GC!!

Nice greens

All the greens were extremely nice but some of the fairways were either wet and muddy or wet and swampy. Probably won't play this course again.

Don’t waste your money

Course was not in good condition, greens were inconsistent, bunkers and tee boxes were terrible. Plenty of other courses to play for the money, for example Bay Forest. Won’t return.

Feedback Suggestions

1. Distance to the holes needs better marking
2. Cart path project needs to be completed.
3. Need another 9 or 18 holes as high tide flooding issues obviously exist.
4. A little too pricey for those of us living on social security.

Overall a very well kept and operated golf course

Good public course

Course has water on a good portion of the holes and is windy from being close to the coast. Rough spots in parts of the fairways but nothing unfair. Greens rolled really well and down hill puts were very quick. I’d definitely recommend this course to any golfer. Good overall value.

Only glaring negative was a group of 6 that held up pace of play on the back 9. Not really on the fault of the course since they likely didn’t have a starter/marshalls out as a COVID-19 precaution.

Rutting of fairways

It is a decent course and a good value for the money. However, they allow too much Fairway driving after rains causing some significant rutting in various places.

Drove by forever finally stopped.

The front desk was very welcoming. He mentioned the fairways being touched up by high tides, but that factored in very little. The greens were excellent. Neat little course. We’ll be back.
