Belle Terre Country Club in La Place was carefully carved from the beautiful swamps of southeast Louisiana. The name, translated from French, means "beautiful land," a title that the terrain certainly lives up to. Pete Dye designed the golf course, utilizing the existing water features and mature trees to craft a layout that is both challenging and scenic. The back tees stretch to 6,849 yards, which will challenge the seasoned player while the forward tees make the course accessible for beginners. Water comes into play on 10 holes and there are also several strategically placed bunkers. Belle Terre Country Club boasts a nice mix of holes that will test a variety of different skills, from long holes where you can grip it and rip it to short, tight holes that demand accuracy.

Improving

Looking forward to the new greens. Grass maintenance is getting better, but you will be able to find your ball. course was dry so hopefully fairways and roughs will be cut to size. Overall it was a good experience .

First Time Playing

This was my first time playing at Belle Terre. We have had lots of rain but the tee boxes, fairways and rough were ridiculously over grown. The course was dry enough to cut majority of the places, yet we only saw one person cutting grass all day. The pro shop had no water, only Powerade and beer. The water in the coolers were hot and seemed to not have been changed in days. On three holes, you could not see the markers on the tee boxes. I lost 4 balls hit in the middle of the fairways. I played another course just yesterday and the grass was no where near as bad, definitely not worth $40 and the price of lost balls.

Poorest conditions possible

It’s official, they’ve given up, course was mostly dry and they haven’t cut the grass in what looks like ages… Stay away from this place.

Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve and are working diligently to improve the course. Thank you for playing and we hope to see you again soon.

Com on man

We asked how the greens were before booking our round and were told "not to bad" LOL. There Bad and that's being nice.. Just be honest and up front with people. We know they will get better eventually. But blatantly lying is what makes people not want to return.

Do Not Play Here

DO NOT PLAY THIS GOLF COURSE.
Went to check in and we asked the kid in the pro shop how the course was and he told us it was good but they had just sanded the greens.
I have been playing golf over 50 years and have never played a course in such poor shape. This course should not even have been open.
the tee boxes were a joke and most of the fairways had not been cut in weeks. They should be charging half of the 40 dollars we paid.
Really to bad as this was once a very nice course.
when you lose balls that are in the middle of the fairway then you have a problem. will never go back and all of our foursome agree it was bad.

Wet

More of a heads up than a poor review. I've played this course many times, and while it's had it's ups and downs through the years, I still return to the swampy layout. Got to the course only to find out they'd sanded the greens. Through the sand you could see the greens were maybe a bit roasted. In the clubhouse, they were very apologetic, saying they were running a discounted rate because of the sand, which they in the clubhouse didn't know before they got to the course in the morning.
But the bigger issue was the wet. The course really does sit in a swamp and between an excess of rain and winds pushing water into the area of the course, it's been mostly underwater for days. They weren't even open for the majority of the week. They had tractors out trying to cut some areas, but the course was completely soaked and really should have remained closed between the sand and the wetness.
They were kind enough to give us a rain check - we only played 3 holes and gave up because it was rough - not so much the sand, but the fairways weren't cut and there was still standing water on the course. And it didn't rain all week.
Nice folks, still a good course. Just not right now.

Shane

Course was extremely wet from recent heavy rain and flooding. Because course has been wet, they haven’t been able to cut tee boxes or fairways. The course can’t control Mother Nature. Honestly, the course should have been closed.

On another note, recently I have booked tee times through a couple different sites. When a course sands or punches the greens, this should be noted on the site prior to booking reservation or arriving at course.
