Best value in NOLA

For the price, you won't beat this course. At about half the cost of other comparable courses (city park - south, lakewood, etc.) it is every bit as nice in all ways.

Pace of Play

Overbooked the course. Took 2 hours to play 9 holes (including skipping 2 holes to play through, so really 7 holes). The Marshall was great and let us play the front 9 a second time to get away from the crowd. Ended up having a group park on the street and yellow at us from behind. Overall bad experience due to the other golfers on the course.

GHD review

Absolute gem of a course! Did not have high expectations given the price for a Sunday round but I was overwhelmed by the outstanding, fair but challenging layout. I preferred this course over much higher cost New Orleans courses. Again, this course is an absolute gem.

No Carts; kicked off on 13

First of all, I love this course. Always well maintained and usually go during the week.

When we arrived it was a beautiful day. There were no carts available. This would’ve been fine. However, they were letting groups finishing up REPLAY the course and keep the carts. This is unacceptable.

We started an hour late (after tee time). Then, on hole 13, someone from the clubhouse whipped up in a cart and blocked our path saying we needed to return the carts. We then expressed the fact that we didn’t finish and the insinuated that they were give us a rain check. When we got back no one was around and no rain check given. They were extremely rude throughout.

Really like the course. Always get along with other players. Usually have a good time. Won’t be going back thanks to the rude staff.
