The Bayou Club, opened for play since 1990, has quickly emerged as one of Western Florida's premier private country clubs. Many are drawn to Bayou Club's extraordinary golf course thanks in part to its unique design created by renowned architect Tom Fazio. The layout of the championship 18-hole course is relaxing yet challenging, beautiful yet competitive. The luxurious centerpiece of an exclusive community, Bayou Club's golf course gently weaves its way through oaks and pines, marshes and bayous. The sights and sounds of nature abound here: great blue herons, playful otters, jumping fish, and bald eagle sightings all enrich the golfer's experience.
