English Turn Golf & Country Club is a Jack Nicklaus design that was crafted in 1988 to host the New Orleans PGA Tour event. Nicklaus designed the course to be enjoyed equally by spectators and golfers, incorporating gallery berms and spectator mounds throughout. This challenging design is known for its undulating greens that will test even the most seasoned players. Each hole has a unique design that combines strategically placed bunkers, including large waste bunkers, and sloping grass swales. There is also carefully sculpted mounding along the edges of the fairways. On top of that, water comes into play on nearly every hole. English Turn's signature hole, the 15th, is a tricky par 5 with an island green but it's the final hole, a par 4 with water all along the left side, that is rumored to be the golf course's toughest.

Outstanding Experience!

Cody (or Cory, can’t remember) pulled up to the car as soon as we pulled in and immediately got us loaded up. James (our starter) was amazing and full of helpful advice. Ebony took great care of us at the bar. Will definitely make a return trip to the Turn.

Narrow, well managed greens

I got rained out in the morning but was able to get on in the afternoon. James gave me the tips to avoid the unseen hazards from the teebox on a first play through. It was quiet and peaceful with a nice open feel. Water in play on every hole but never too daunting. I really enjoyed playing here. I hope to be back to NOLA to play again.

That’s what I’m talking about…

Great layout, challenging but not unfair. Lots of water that comes into play. A few greens in rough shape around the edges but otherwise in great conditions. Rolled a little slow but true. Excellent service and pace of play was perfect. Never waited on a single hole and we’re never crowded from behind despite a full tee sheet. James is a great ambassador for the course and made sure we knew we were playing someplace special.

Love this course and will come back again.

James is a really good starter. He always has a good energy and is kind. For first timers he always explains the course and important things about it which is really nice and helpful.

Awesome

I’ve played every course around the New Orleans area and English turn became my favorite today. We had James as the starter today, that guy is great. Challenging greens, challenging fairways. Highly recommend playing here. I know I’ll be back.

Course is in horrible condition

English Turn was PGA tour venue. That is history now. Course has lost its charm. Never played worse greens and they allow the members to play in 5-somes in front of twosomes. The greens are tiny, do not hold iron shots and most of them should be replaced they are so bad. Sad, because this course used to be a great golf course.

Awesome Course!

This was our first time playing English Turn and we weren't disappointed. This course has it all - gorgeous but challenging fairways, large but extremely tough greens and enough water to suck up a ton of balls. We played a day before a Tulane golf tournament, so everything was perfect. We would definitely recommend this course!

Fantastic

I am into the older courses. ProShop staff awesome. Head pro started a conversation. Advised of shop specials. Got there a bit early. They advised where I needed to go. Starter was very informative. Gave tips for certain holes. Greens were completely redone Nov 21. They were fantastic. Very fast & putted very true. Will definitely play again.
