Oak Harbor Golf Club
Situated just 25 minutes outside of New Orleans, Oak Harbor Golf Club is one of the area's most popular courses. The course is a challenging test without being too intimidating for beginners. It offers risk-reward holes that will appeal to low and high handicappers alike. Lee Schmidt, who worked closely with Pete Dye, designed the golf course, and incorporated many of Dye's signature features into the design. Sculpted mounding and native grasses frame the generous landing areas and you'll even find Dye's trademark railroad ties framing the greens. There are also several lakes that come into play throughout. Oak Harbor Golf Club's seventh and 15th holes are particularly notable for their intimidating tee shots over water. If you strategize carefully, the four par 5s provide some birdie opportunities but you'll have to carefully navigate through a combination of water, traps, and undulations.

If you need to play, this is only choice.
Greens and fairways were good to fair. Rough and tee boxes weren’t. But must take with grain of salt due to Ida. All in all was a good course especially since it’s the only one open!!
I first played Oak Harbor about 5 years ago and really liked it. Great layout, good conditions and decent facility in a nice residential area. Since then, it has gone steadily downhill. Still a nice layout but course condition is in serious need of some updating and repair. In fairness, greens are in great shape, but we’re painfully slow today. I doubt I will be back any time soon unless some serious investment is made to update course conditions. Worth paying more for if it’s repaired and renovated.
Greens in perfect shape, played in the rain but the course drained well. Cart paths and golf carts could use a little work, but the course was great where it counted. Excellent value.
Great course only downfall was the pace of play. I played on consecutive days and on both days there were groups in front of us dropping multiple balls with no consideration for my son and I waiting on the tee box.
I played the course on Thursday July 8th. enjoyed the course. Played again this past Tuesday July 12th with my 2 son in-laws. The course was wet and cart path only which we new in advance. However, both of our carts broke down on hole number 11. I called the pro shop and it took them 45 minutes to bring one cart even though they new we needed 2. After another 45 minutes we went to the pro shop and asked where the other cart was. The person on staff did not seem to care we had been delayed 1 and a half hour in the rain on number 11. I was very disappointed. I expected a rain delay which we had for about 30 minutes. BUT to WAIT over and hour and a half to get the carts out to us was total unacceptable. I question I would play here again or even recommend this course based on the service we received. After 7 hours of being on the course 30 minute rain delay, 1 and a half hours for waiting for replacement carts it was RIDICULAS!! Dean Van Riesen
Pace of play
We played on Saturday. I expect it not to be quick. But you should never let a group of 5 out on a weekend. We were behind them waiting 10 minutes on average on each tee. Finally got frustrated and quit. Told your personnel in the pro shop and they said "Sorry". Spoiled the entire round.
I was expecting the course to be in better conditions. Tee boxes were not good and fairways had weeds. Starter let off 3 singles in a row after our tee time and had to let each one go through seemingly every 3 holes.
Fairways were hard as the concrete cart path. Greens were aerated and was not told anything till we practiced on the putting greens. Overgrown grass everywhere. St. Augustine grass in spots off the fairways.
Pace of play.
Course was in great shape. Unfortunately two groups slowed down the entire field. No one making sure everyone kept up a decent pace of play. Left after thirteenth hole due to waiting over an hour to play 10-12.
Needs lots of work
Oak Harbor I can be a beautiful course. It just needs lots of love. But trust me I’ve also played worse courses.
Course was awesome
As a first time player of this course, it was a very nice layout to the course, and the greens were in great shape. Would definitely play again, and soon!
