Indian Bayou Golf Club offers 27 holes of golf, three nines that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The courses provide plenty of variety, which makes them appealing to a range of different skill levels. The Choctaw/Creek Course combines two nines that require careful strategy. With only two par 3s, distance and control will be rewarded on the Choctaw nine. The tricky hazard placement on the lengthier holes makes laying up a necessity. The second hole on the Creek nine is one of the most difficult at the club. There is water along both sides of the fairway on this dogleg right par 4, which also plays to a long, double-tiered green backed by out-of-bounds. To make it even trickier, the hole plays directly into the prevailing wind.

Nice course-would definitely go back. A little pricey for only 9 holes. Not a difficult course. Mostly wide open-big fairways. Flat w lots of trees.

The course layout and condition is good not great. The greens were unbelievably good. Probably the truest rolling greens I have ever played on and I have played some top level courses. I played Regatta Bay a couple days later, that is a much better layout, but the greens do not even come close to how good the bayou’s are. Staff was also very nice and accommodating. For the cost compared to other courses for me this is a must play.

The course is a fun track, and it’s in great shape. The value is excellent; you can pay a lot more around Destin for a similar course. The staff was friendly and helpful. I’ll be back.

I prefer playing the Choctaw and Seminole courses but if your not a member you usually get put on Creek and Choctaw. Creek is ok but not the preferred of the 3 9 hole options. I’ve played this course 5 times in past few weeks and have been put on Creek every time.
