Course was nice but ver confusing. No signs to where each hole was or even how to get to the first hole and took me and my girlfriend to figure it out

Home Course

Greens are always excellent and fast. Course is taken care of well, bot high time tends to wash over about 4 fairways at times.
Best bang for the buck, by far!

The first few holes had very narrow fairways because of water poodles. There is need to improve drainage and several areas of fairways need to be regrassed. Sand in bunkers need to be replaced..Hole 9 was the most terrible. The back nine holes were better. The greens were well maintained. The restrooms on the course were awful.

Cart path & fairways

The Course needs some major upgrades. The cart paths were in terrible condition actually tearing up the golf carts and the fairways are almost bare. Really needs attention.

Nice Day

Course was in good shape for the time of year. Some fairways are bare from the tides. Not much you can do about that if you want to play Bayou! I play there often and just expect it. Some holes (like hole 6) the area across the water is literally unplayable. Something needs to be done on that hole. Number 1 and 3 have serious tidal issues and the fairways need to be raised.

fastest round ever

played in less than 3 hours by myself. Front nine fairways a mess on holes by the water. Flooded too many times. Front nine very challenging by the water, especially with the prevailing wind. Greens in good shape. Rebuilt in last couple years I believe. Easy going staff. Back nine very nice. Sand traps recently washed out apparently. Play them like ground under repair.

They have a new practice green by the back nine that is the largest I have ever seen. Might be part of the separate short course practice area, which I think you pay extra for?.

Good day

The greens were absolutely fantastic. There are some fairways that are dead and all dirt but did not affect too much play. That is pretty normal it seems for this course.
