A great everyday play course with three nines. I prefer Choctaw and Seminole to the Creek nine. Challenging for all levels and fun for the guys that like to consume malted beverages during play. Go play!

Indian Bayou has remained one of the Best maintained Courses in Destin, having played there over fifty times on visits over the past 25 years. Beautiful course, fair to average golfer. Very friendly staff from bag drop, pro shop to course staff.

I went june 8 2016 and course met/exceeded all of my expectations. Great value for the money. Not too crowded and fairways and greens both in excellent shape on creek course. The greens on the seminole course were sandy but still rolled true. Would recommend for sure.

Played in early June. Greens were in magnificent condition! Staff were very friendly. Played all 27 holes in 6 hours. If you're playing in the Destin area, definitely recommend over most others!!

This is a nice inland course in the Destin area. The greens had just been aerated, but still rolled pretty true. We played the "Creek" course and the "Choctaw" course. The Creek had some challenging holes that required accurate yardage and ball placement or it would be lost to the "bayou". I would say most golfers would be able to... More

The course was in OK condition with a lot of very tight lies. The greens rolled straight and true and were of good speed. The GPS on the carts made the game more fun but at $83 per round dying the week it was pretty high-priced for its condition.

Just returned from the Destin Winter Golf Classic and play on three different courses. Played this club maybe 25 years ago and it was the best of the bunch in 2015. Greens were excellent, fairways even in Dec were solid. I could remember some of the holes from 25 years ago. . . .always a good sign of a good... More

Called for a tee time the day before we wanted to play. Pro shop informed me they had a member/ guest event that morning. I asked for an afternoon tee time, and the gentleman said to come out and they would try to get us on. I could not tell whether he did not want to be there, or he... More

While staying at Destin had opportunity to play Indian Bayou. What a wonderful course and in great shape. When you arrive you are greeted by very friendly staff who load your bags to carts and clean your clubs and unload them when done. While its near the airport, I barely noticed. In Destin you always hear planes. The course is... More
