Indian Bayou is a fun course. It was in great condition, especially the greens. However, the Creek course is a joke. The landing zone layout of several holes call for ridiculous tee shots on par 4 holes. I will not go back to play if the Creek course is included.

First time, really enjoyed it. Friendly staff, good service, excellent conditions, somewhat challenging but fair layout. Just about right. Will play again. Now that I've seen the course, hope to do a bit better. Some fairways are tight enough to suggest less than driver, and some doglegs need to be seen to understand shot placement. Greens are small, which is fine, and were in superb shape, but some foreknowledge of the greens complexes will be very helpful next time. A very nice course, and at the GN rate, a good value. See you next time.Thanks.

Course is in great condition, bunkers are excellent, lots of water to play away from but the greens are the very best around in the Destin area. I have played this course about 4 times now and compared to others it stands out as a cut above. Great practice facility and practice greens to help you prepare for round. Staff are excellent and friendly. You are made to feel welcome at Indian Bayou.

Enjoyed a very nice round at Indian Bayou. Paired with 2 great guys from Kentucky. Course in great shape. Very consistent challenging greens. Enjoyed the wooded Choctaw 9. Could have been more varied - many doglegs. The Creek 9 more open with some challenging approaches and a bit more variety of design. Great first day overall !
