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.

Father's Day Trip at English Turn

I took my dad here for a Father's Day trip. We definitely had fun playing another Jack Nicklaus course. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, from the guy who was ready to setup a cart for us, to the pro shop attendee and the starter. It was a pretty hot day, but there's plenty of drinking water, the cart girl came by several times and there's a little canteen (for lack of a better word) at the turn if you're looking for sandwiches and whatnot. So overall, the service and amenities were great.

The driving range wasn't really setup specifically for different ball play, so you're mostly hitting out of pretty thick grass instead of a mat or short grass. Tee boxes were in good condition, no complaints there, really. The fairways were pretty thick, but what was disappointing were all the groundskeepers working on them in the middle of the day. We even had a guy just cutting the grass right in front of us on one hole, wouldn't wait for us to play through. The greens played ok, but could use some work too.

Overall, I just felt like the condition of the course didn't really meet what you pay for. I'm no scratch golfer, but I've played plenty over the years and felt like we were paying a premium simply for it being a Nicklaus course. I'm glad we played, but would probably only consider doing it again at a discount rate or some kind of specialty rate.

Great Layout

Course layout was very fun to play. We played in the middle of summer so it was very hot. Other than it being 100 degrees we had a great time. Some bunkers could use some new sand and the fringe on a few of the greens was a little rough. The greens were in great shape, and the fairways were super nice! Overall good experience at English Turn.

Wonderful course

I played TPC Louisiana the day before and enjoyed English Turn more. The variety of strategic, penal, and heroic holes, and the balanced order in which they’re placed, make this course a joy to play. The conditioning is decent - nothing to boast about, but certainly good enough. But the star of the show is the design by Nicklaus. Very fun course that requires careful consideration to score well and extremely playable, for all levels of golfer. Highly recommended.

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.
