Florida golf doesn't get any better than Bayou

Founded in 1991, the Bayou Club was designed by legendary golf course architect Tom Fazio. Located in the heart of Pinellas County, the award-winning private championship course is the luxurious centerpiece of the exclusive Bayou community. The Bayou Club was the host site of the Eckerd Pro-Am with 20 PGA Tour professionals including Gary Player, Ian Baker-Finch and Jeff Maggert paired with local club professionals. The outstanding course layout gently weaves its way through oaks, pines, marshes and bayous. Water comes into play on 16 holes. The sights and sounds of nature abound. Great blue herons, playful otters, manatees, jumping fish and bald eagle sightings enrich your golf experience. Throughout the year, golfers of all calibers enjoy outstanding playing conditions on lush Bermuda fairways and new CHAMPION Dwarf Bermudagrass greens ~ the same putting surface found on 12 PGA Tour venues, including Pinehurst No. 2. In the National Turfgrass Evaluation, CHAMPION had STIMPmeter speeds at nearly 2 feet faster than other ultradwarf grasses.
