The pro shop with limited stock is a separate building from the clubhouse. We particularly enjoyed the course layout with elevation changes, water hazards and true rolling greens. Pace of play was outstanding. A group of ladies ahead of our twosome willingly let us play through. Felt alone on the course afterwards. Well worth the trip over the causeway to the Niceville area.

Great value through GolfNow.

A great course for the money. First time to play here. Played by myself, by choice (I do have friends), to practice and work on short game. This course surprised me pleasantly with the layout and elevation changes for a Florida course. The members have something to be proud of. Not many courses last this long. Only downside is having to pay the toll fees for FL 293.

What a beautiful course to play. Starting with the Par 3 4th hole, you better be accurate with your yardage and carry the water, or you may just roll one into the drink. It helps to have a laser range finder since the Club has now put in new flag sticks with the mirror prisms built into the flag sticks. Makes for a much more accurate yardage. A really fun course to play!!

Just sanded the greens, would've been nice for the heads up on that prior to booking a tee time. But other than that, all is great at this course.

Rocky Bayou has an excellent practice area for full shots, practice area for chipping and bunker play plus a challenging putting area. Greens were true and fast. For winter conditions no complaints and you can see the grounds staff are doing a good job at maintaining the tee blocks, fairways and greens. This course meanders through the community of houses but not in the way of the fairways, divided by the waterways to separate the course in an almost cottage country setting. Again liked it a lot.
