Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Florida
Enjoyed the entire experience. Has to be one of the top three in NWF.
Course was in great shape and the staff was very friendly. It is a great layout and is pretty forgiving. Greens were in excellent shape and rolled very nicely. Greens were quick but not too fast. Very enjoyable.
On vacation, great place to play
First time player on this course and had a great experience. Beautiful course, well designed. Fairways were a little thin but greens played perfectly. They just a lot of rain so course was pretty wet and soft but I will definitely play it again soon.
Love this place.
Every time I’ve played here, the course conditions were great. Greens are some of the best in Destin. Fairways were aerified and still great conditions. This super knows his business. Definitely worth the price!
Good deal fir the money. Greens are great. Fairways little thin now.
Aerating Back 9 Front Fine
Indian Bayou is a nice upscale semi-private course. We can attest that the from nine holes (Seminole) are in great shape And not aerated yet. Wefound out when we arrived our 18 holes would be same nine twice since back nine being punched. Desk person explained Golfnow has the aerification symbol for a week. My buddy and both booked 10-15 days ago, before they did aerification but we paid full price for 18 holes not punched. Explaining timeline, there didn’t seem to be concern or consideration. I’ll take that part up with Golfnow. My buddy was visiting and we certainly wouldn’t have chosen to play here with just nine holes played twice. The front 9 is in good shape but when j yuk ou want 18 different holes, this was a huge disappointment.
I don’t think staff understood what happened or they don’t care as many tourists play here. I’m local and try to play IB quite often in cooler weather as here year around. I don’t know what if anything course could have done but being sympathetic might have helped, there was none of that vibe. Between course and Golfnow, all people with existing reservations should be notified and be able to canx without penalty, or rebook at a lower ‘sorry we punched, only 9 holes open notification. Would you pay premium price to play 1/2 course twice as a not so good surprise? Me neither.
Stil a great open course but value was to near ripoff levels because we made reservations early. Golfers don’t like surprises, an avoidable situation.
There was no cart service, water fountain only on 2 holes. Single carts unless came together.
The course was being aerated. The available course was an average challenge and well maintained.
Great course bad timing
Ratings would have been higher but the greens had just been aerated. By the look of the practice green which had not been punched yet, the greens would have been exceptional if we were a week earlier. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. As an example, a staff member drove up to us on hole 14. He said our cart battery was running low. He brought a replacement cart proactively. I have dealt with dead carts a lot and this was the first time I have ever seen this happen. The rest of the staff was just as friendly and helpful.
Best conditioned course I have played in Destin area. Top drawer golf carts. Outstanding practice area.
