At Indian Bayou Golf and Country Club, the Earl Stone-designed links are a challenging, yet playable, assortment of nines. The 3,541-yard (3,222m) Seminole and 3,417-yard (3,109m) Choctaw courses are woven with gracious fairways and long, wide holes, but punctuated with periodic "problems."
Both feature left and right doglegs and a combination of difficult par-3s, tough par-4s and moderate par-5s. The newest nine, the 3,475-yard (3,162m) Creek, applauds accuracy with all nine holes winding through natural swamp.
The showcase is the 514-yard (468m), par-5 fourth hole, requiring a tricky tee-shot over the marsh, a tight island landing, and a return drive over wetlands to the fairway -- just short of the green. The course is liquid-locked between the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay. Email for Info
