About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 7078
Slope 132
Rating 74.6
Type Semi-Private
Indian Bayou Golf & Country Club is home to 27 holes of championship golf that are divided into three nines. These nines are played in three different 18-hole combinations and share a landscape of towering pines and blue lakes. The Seminole/Choctaw Course begins gently enough with wide, forgiving fairways but there are water hazards on four holes. The large, undulating greens on the Seminole nine also require careful strategy as well as accuracy. The lengthy Choctaw nine rewards distance and control. The hazard placement on its longer holes makes laying up a necessity. The back nine also features narrower fairways that are lined with trees. Included in the green fees are unlimited range balls to use on the driving range and practice putting greens, which are a great warm-up before hitting the golf course.

Great course

Best course I’ve been on in the gulf! Course was in great shape from tee box to green!Very fun to play and challenging!! Loved not hitting a driver off every hole. Best fairways I’ve ever played of off of. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Practice facilities were in great shape! Will definitely be back! Absolutely my favorite course on the gulf!

Fun course. Challenging but fair.

I really enjoyed Indian Bayou today. I have played this course several times in the past. Conditions were perfect. Fairways, greens and even bunkers were manicured. I will play this course again...by the way, we played in 3 1/2 hours!

One of the Best in Destin

The course was in fantastic shape. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were some of the best I've played in the Destin area (and I've played most all). I highly recommend Indian Bayou!
