While the course was wet, a week of dry weather and it will be perfect. Was kind of crowded leading to may foursomes playing slow, but overall a good experiance.

Course just can’t dry out. Mud in middle of almost all fairways last few months. Hopefully gets some dry weather, but needs drainage work badly. Greens and sand bunkers are in four star shape, but the wet fairways just made it unenjoyable to play.

Awesome course. Great for any skill level. My 11 year old son and I both shot a good round. The majority of the holes have water hazards but the fairways are wide and forgiving. The staff were phenomenal! Highly recommend.... A+

Normally this one of my favorite courses in the Baton Rouge area, and it is typically in tip-top shape. But today we were surprised with nearly week old aerated greens and fairways. Lots of sand had been laid down. The green were very bumpy, slow and very inconsistent. Tough outing all together but the coirse was wide open. Give it some time and this course will come back around to its quality condition.

Nice layout, helpful and courteous staff. Course conditions are spotty. Lots of tight lines and rough patches. Bunkers not well maintained and bumpy greens. This could be a great course with proper maintenance.

First time playing Used cart Hot weather Verified Purchaser

Reviewed on

This is a great golf course. Picked it up on a Hot Deal which just added to the value. I was told that it used to be a country club that went under and was bought by the BR parks department to operate - You can tell that it was once a true gem, kept at the highest standards. It is still an awesome golf course with really good conditions. Lots of options off the tee and hitting into greens in the risk v. reward department, a fair amount of water that sneaks into play (use an app to see what danger lies out there). It has a good routing through a nice neighborhood that only gets cramped in a small section of the course where 4-5 holes play near each other. The only thing I thought was "off" with the course was the amount/type of sand that is used in the bunkers - have played in a lot of places, but this is the first course where I stepped in a bunker and immediately sank 8-10 inches into the sand (note for next time - don't come up short on a front pin tucked behind a bunker). While I didn't use it, the practice area of this course looked top notch with both putting and pitching/chipping greens and an expansive range.
