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.

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!

Love the course for the hot deal rate.

It’s near an airport so planes are coming and going. But, very few houses on the course and feels like an escape from the city, while being in the city. Very open and spacious course. Greens are in good condition. Fun to play and not too challenging. It’s a long course with long par 3’s.

I played my first round at Indian Bayou while on vacation in the Destin area. The condition of the tee boxes, fairways and greens were excellent! The course is a little shorter than what I normally play, so long hitters won't hit many drivers here. The course is well maintained and rarely did I have a bad lie. The greens were excellent, fairly fast and rolled true. The staff was friendly and helpful. The course starter gave detailed instructions on how to play the first hole, which helped start my round off on a positive note (par). I will definitely play this course again!

From showing up 45 minutes before they opened we were welcomed with a cart a smile. Upon finishing we were met in the parking lot or bags were taking off the cart cleaned out for us and placed in a vehicle I could not ask for more. This course was fantastic if I live there it would be my regular course especially for $2,500 a year. Do yourself a favor book it now
