Very Slow pace of play

This course has been a go to for me for about a decade or so. Considering other local options as the pace of play has got ridiculous to say the least. Five or even six different groups all waiting to tee off at the same time, with three groups coming off number nine to finish their round. This is absurd. Our group wound up having to skip ahead several holes on multiple occasions to keep pace of play. I understand there may be a lot of new comers to the sport and that is encouraging. However, don’t book tee times and allow everyone walking up to start play immediately and cause the fiasco I witnessed at hole number one. A little attention to detail could really alleviate this, and make this place a lot more enjoyable for everyone.

Embarrassing for the city

Needs MAJOR renovation, seams like money hasn’t been spent on the course since it was open in 1920

Good Value But Play is Often Slow

I like the course and have played there a lot. The course is much better in terms of maintenance than in previous years. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and it’s nice to be able to practice chipping and putting on the practice green. The problem is there are too many people walking and it slows down the pace since most people are riding. You just can’t spread out enough with only 9 holes and limited space.

Better than ever

Fairways have nice fluff grass to them, greens look GREAT. Fast and rolls smooth. I think the amount of rain has really helped this course in the last month. Take advantage while you can lol

Great Course

I recommend this course because it’s the best price around for 18 holes of golf and the course is wonderful. Also the staff is well mannered and the equipment is always clean and ready to go. Thanks for a great experience.

New go to!

This was my 4th time playing this course since October 26. It is my new go to course. Pace of play has been great. I’m 30 and like that there is never any “youngins makin a ruckus”. Nice easy day on the course everytime ive been. Greens were in really good shape as they have been the past few times.

Really good course in Baton Rouge. Especially for the money. I’ve sworn off LSU and was looking for something new and every time I have gone there it’s been really nice.

Great value

People dont give this place enough credit. Great for beginners. Walking price of 10 dollars when you pay ahead cant't be beat. Greens are in beeter shape right now than at private courses in the area with 50 dollar tee times.

Fairways were nice, but the greens could have been better. A really beautiful old course to play.

Course Was in Great Shape

I've played CP for a couple of years and today the course was in the best shape it's ever been in. The fairways and greens were very well maintained. For a nine-hole course, it's a very nice experience and a quick play if you don't have much time or the weather is hot and you don't want to play 18.
