Course is in Great Shape!!

I’ve been playing this course for over 25 years, give or take. This past Sunday was the best shape I’ve ever seen it in. The greens were fantastic and you can tell they have put a lot of work into fixing it up nice. Keep up the good work!

Great course conditions.

Fairways have some wear, maybe rope off some areas for growth to fill in. #9 fairway has some tall patches of weeds, not a deal breaker. Greens are great condition!

First visit...ok..will give it another shot...

It was the first visit to Bayou Golf Course for everyone in our foursome.

The course had a decent layout. It was very flat, and mostly open, with water coming into play often. It's not too far from the coast. So, there is likely to be a breeze on most days. This is nice in providing a little relief from the heat, and it gives the course an additional bit of protection from a mostly straightforward layout.

This rating should be a 3.5. Unfortunately, that is not an option. The conditions on the day of play prevent me from going to a 4, so 3 is what it gets.

It appears to be a course of moderate means. So, budget constraints may play a role. There was crab grass throughout the fairways and the greens were not very good. It appeared to mostly be that the winter grass was still there and dry, and the summer grass was dormant and had not come in yet, and there were some bare spots. Whatever the reason, they just were not that good overall.

The clubhouse is very modest, as was the grill/lounge area.

Staff in both the pro shop and the grill were friendly.

This review is based solely on today's visit. That being said, we will give it another try. If the greens have come in, it will be worth it--provided it's at a reasonable price.

Beautiful Day but Wet Course

Good course, Friendly staff but wet course. Front 9 was cart path only but back 9 was 90 degree. Too much Poa Annua on the greens.

Early season Golf

Fairways have not wintered well or have been neglected. Lots of dead area,grass less area. Bunkers were good good sand, greens were fast and undulating, actual holes are interesting ie not boring back and forth some challenges and club selection with the wind makes a big difference. had i not gotten senior rate (29 nice that course offers senior rates on weekend as most don't) Wife played with us and from forward tees she enjoyed herself with out having to lose a few sleeves of balls. Tee boxes were not great (long crass and fairway dead spots but other than that enjoyed the round. Just play winter rules and lift and place ball on grass if you can find some . Will return but will give it some time to grow in. . .

Solid Muni Course

Cost of a round is very fair for what the course is. It’s a very playable municipal course with a few fun/hard holes.

Greens rolled fairly well. They all had some little weed things popping up but nothing ridiculous that dramatically affected putts. Less than $35 for 18 with a cart on a Sunday morning is a good value for this course. If you want to knock the rock around for a quick 18 on a budget, I definitely recommend.

A bit Breezy

The course was in good shape and the greens are rolling well. The wind is always a factor there, so the course plays sneaky long.
A group playing from the tips, had the place backed up. They really needed to play from the forward tees and the “marshal” missed the mark on asking them to do so. It’s a Saturday, so I suppose it’s to be expected.

The course was cart path only. Very wet is an understatement, but we played anyway.

Very solid option

This course was great to play. Lots of different hole designs and lengths. Tee boxes and fairways are in great shape for the most part. Greens are a little bumpy but that’s abiut it. I’ll defi come back to play again.

Great layout.

In my opinion, this course is very underrated. Conditions aren’t wonderful, as is to be expected, but the layout is great. Lot of wind and a lot of water. Lot of cheap muni’s out there, but not too many designed this good (Joe Finger design, seriously, look up what other courses he did...). Also, greens were redone a couple years back and they are the hardest greens you will ever putt. A lot of undulations and I don’t mean subtle. Pace of play can be slow, but wasn’t yesterday. Driving range is good, especially if you want to practice with wind. Make time for a sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast burrito from the grill..

Love this course

Considering all of the rain, cold and wind... I still had. Great time playing this course. It had been 36 years since I played here and the course has withstood the time. The clubhouse is much better than the old one and I was made to feel right at home by the staff.

Fun and Fast

Betty and I have played here twice now, once in the big wind and once in under 10 mph. Course played tough both times due to wetness but greens were great!
Super friendly place. Everyone tries real hardto keep conditions up to par.

Course in Good Shape

The course is looking good, Bayou tends to hold water longer than area courses, but everything had dried out. Pace of play is an issue. I was a single in a cart and couldn’t get through a two-some. At least two open holes ahead of them all day and they were hitting extra shots while people were waiting on them.
