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.

Great update

The course was just renovated. Greens immaculate and course is in great shape. Golf now hot deal is where it’s at. Pace was slow due to the recent reopening. Tough course with small greens but nice challenging lay out.

So close...

The course is very fun to play and is challenging with unique hole layouts, immaculate fairways, many bunkers/water hazards, and TINY greens. This would be a top three course (in NOLA) easy if the greens weren't the shag carpet someone reclaimed from a 1970's house fire, and if the MANY bunkers around the course played consistently. You either got perfectly manicured white clouds, or a hole someone stole the sod out of then dusted it with brown sugar and cinnamon. For the weekday rate of $50, I can't say I would see myself going back until the greens were remedied, cause ideally the bunkers are something to be avoided anyway, but putting through a forest of a green that's been littered with napalm strikes really kills the enjoyment of what could be a spectacular place to play. Apparently they will be putting a large investment into the greens soon though, so fingers crossed.

Green needs a lot of work. Lots of burned out patches on the greens.

It’s the second time I’ve played at this course. The first time was good but this time it’s has gotten worst. The greens is worst then the local municipal course. The layout and fairways are good. The fairway bunkers need sand. It looks like hitting off of concrete , it needs sand to call it a fairway bunkers. The price is not worth it for the course. I was really disappointed when I saw the first green d it gotten worst afterwards.

Worst greens in Louisiana

The course is beautiful, great layout , fun holes but the greens are in the worst shape I’ve ever seen. We were told that they are gonna shut down in June to redo most greens and they need to do that badly. Some greens were unplayable. Wait til next year to go play

Sad to see this once great course in such squalid condition.

This used to be my favorite course to play....now it’s a shell of it’s former PGA tour stop condition. Greens and fairways are horrible.

Save your money and play elsewhere.

I wish I could answer this!

Never had a chance to play!! It was a total wash out day!! The folks were very nice and refunded our money thru golf now without any hassles! Thanks

I have one serious criticism of Golfnow, when you ate forced to cancel due to weather, it is way to hard to talk to a real person! It’s way to hard to find a phone number to call. Need to improve this.

English Turn has Turned!

I haven't played here in 30 years and I know I have changed, just hope not as much as this course has! It is in really poor shape. All traps are horrible and empty of sand and most greens are a disaster. This use to be the Crown Jewel in the big easy, not anymore. Rumor is that they plan to shut down and re-do the greens, it is needed!

Super slow play and no Marshall

Greens are in bad shape, trying to cover dead spots with sand, front 9 worse than back. Super slow pace of play and no marshals on the course, typical for weekend golfers that expect to play above their real skill.

Course conditions were below par. Some greens were in very rough shape. Others were in barely ok state. Course is challenging but reasonably fair if you can hit somewhat accurate shots. (Which I didn't!)
