I have played this course several times over the last 15 years. I look forward each time I’m in the area that I get to play this course. It was in great condition and the staff was very helpful in every way that was possible.

Looking forward to next year!

Played here because I was able to be added to a group instead of playing alone, the greens were as good as I played all week, the problem was even with a group that played slow we waited on every hole due to no Marshall on the course, also there are a few holes on the back that I didn't like, a par 5 that you had to hit 7 iron off the tee, and a par 4 that you had to hit s 7 iron, I don't mind laying up but not with a short iron, personal I wouldn't play it again

My family and I come down twice a year and this is the first time I have played Indian Bayou. I normally just run through "golf now" to try and find a great deal, but this course was great. I played Chactaw/Creek on the hybrid(blue/white) tee loop. Sometimes the holes were short, but challenging! Great course! It is the best kept secret of the Destin golfing!

Very nice tract in excellent condition. Friendly & helpful staff. Carts with GPS and usb. Rage balls included in round. Pace of play was great. Only critique is a sulfur smell around the clubhouse but I’m assuming it was one of the ponds as it wasn’t noticeable after tee off. We played the whites and it was slightly shorter than would’ve preferred but there are a couple more tees back for longer hitters that we’ll use next time. The greens were perfect and all putts had a chance. Being prompted on gps to order lunch was nice. Bacon cheeseburger was ready at the turn as advertised. Unlike a lot of courses, we saw the cart girl 5-6 times so never got parched. Enjoyed our experience.

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.
