This course was exceptional ,except that we could not use the driving range because it was closed.

M husband said is like gong hunting with no bullets...

We would have went some where else but we had already paid for online.

If you want an all-around wonderful golf experience... this is it! Combine a mild Florida summer day, 84 degrees, light wind, perfect fairways, pristine greens and snow-like sand bunkers, these were the conditions when I played. Completed the Choctaw and Seminole courses in under 4 hrs. so decided to extend the round and added Creek (the least favorite; close to the airport and not nearly as scenic). I would certainly play the first two again.

This was an outstanding course, staff was very friendly, met us at the car and loaded clubs, and after playing they cleaned them up and put them in the car. The course was GREAT! Greens, tee-boxes and fairways were all in great shape. They had to really challenging holes - a lot of fun!

We got rained out in the morning and came back. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The greens were absolutely perfect and the rest of the course was in excellent condition. After all the rain, a few holes were still very wet, but that was no one's fault. I would definitely play it again.

We purchased a hot deal for Indian Bayou, which took about 40% off the going rate. Despite a morning monsoon, the course ended up being in great shape.

No complaints whatsoever. Three of us played 18 holes for $44 + fees/tax ($50 total) using the daily promotional special with 8 am tee time. Added the third nine at the end for only $28. Greens, traps, fairways, staff-all perfect.

This was a great course except for all the pine trees that are usually lined up down each side of the fairways. Stay in the short grass and your fine. The greens were excellent but fast the day we played. I would play it again next time I'm in the Destin area.

I travel to Destin on annual basis and have played all of the other premier courses in the area for years. Reviews about Indian Bayou being close to the airport persuaded me in the past to steer clear but man have I been missing out. The staff was very friendly. The cart girl came around every few holes. The Marshall allowed us to go off earlier than our scheduled tee time. The layout was challenging but fair. The greens & bunkering were phenomenal. There is GPS on the carts which is helpful at times. Stopped in for a few drinks at the clubhouse and the lady at the bar was very friendly and the drinks were priced lower than I'm accustomed to. It was the best golf outing I've had in years! Thanks Indian Bayou!
