Had the opportunity to play the University Club, the private club that is the home of the LSU Tigers golf teams. Don't let private fool you - this isn't an uppity stuffy club. It's like the people around it - down to earth.

The course is quite long from the tips, but offers lots of options for tee boxes. The third hole is a 673 yard par 5 with an insane forced carry across the water. The bailout is a narrow fairway cut with high grass right. Not for the faint of heart.

Probably the neatest feature of the course is it's quartet of par 3 holes. All are tremendously challenging and picturesque.

We played on a Thursday. It was busy but not packed. The course itself is very nice, the shot values are good. The layout is nice. The grasses were a little thin, particularly in the chipping areas. Greens are slick but pretty true.

Overall I found the course to be a good test of a golfer's game. Novice golfers would be highly challenged here with the forced carries and OB on a few holes, but for intermediate to skilled golfers, it's a nice test.

Pace of Play: Excellent
