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!

Played Creek/Choctaw with my son who is new to the game. During the week we had no issues with pace of play. Choctaw was aerated but the greens were actually ok to putt on. The carts had usb plugs, which was very handy. Also had rain covers on the back of the cart for clubs, which we used with scattered showers during the round. Overall great golf experience. I'll be back!

Creek #4 and #6 holes are very tough because waste areas dissect the fairways twice, making club selection tough on the first time player. Can't recall if the scorecard stated if drop areas exist on those holes, but they should. Course was in very good condition; are real value for the green fee.
