Lakewood Golf Club is one of the South's premier golf destinations. Opened in 1961, the course has hosted the New Orleans Open 26 times over the years. Beautiful cypress and oak trees frame the golf course, providing a beautiful backdrop throughout the round. When Ron Garl renovated the course in 2009 he managed to obtain its original character while modernizing the layout with new fairways, tee boxes, and greens. Strategically placed bunkers and fairway contouring were also added. Lakewood Golf Club is owned by the New Orleans Firefighters Pension Fund and as a tribute to New Orleans Firefighters, the final hole was redesigned and renamed "Fire in the Hole." Called so because the traps are arranged in a set of flames against a backdrop of red sand. You won't find anything like the bunkering on this par 4.

One of the best in the NOLA area

Always a great course to play. Never played a round here where the course was in bad shape. Some of the best greens in the New Orleans area, and that includes TPC in Avondale and English Turn. Very reasonable prices too for the quality of the course. Plus it's owned by the Firefighter's Pension which is great to support. If you're visiting NOLA and want to play this is the one I would recommend.

Great / Chilly Round

Course was in great shape. Greens seemed to have just been sanded which threw me off some but otherwise had a great round.

I was EXTREMELY disappointed with this course. The Tee Boxes were beyond HORRIBLE. I would really like my money back

Weedeater Please

The course has grass that is so high, it's a danger. I know the course is wet, but they could put some guys out there and get that rough down. Tee boxes are spotty. The greens are pretty good. Don't miss the fairway or you may never see your ball again. There is high grass on and around bunkers. Approaching the signature 17th green there is grass at waist level. I am hopeful the course gets back in shape. Until then I probably won't be playing there.

Lakewood

We had to wait an hour to play because of their lighting detection system. Not their fault, rules are rules. Greens were ok. They had been aerated and still a little sandy. The rough was too long. When you lose 3 balls 5 feet off the fairway, something isn't right. We played for $33 on the twilight rate. Absolutely worth that at that price. Get the mowers going and clean up that rough.

Not as represented

I booked the tee time through your sight and it was supposed to be $144.47 total for 4 golfers. When we got to the course they said that your website made a mistake and charged us $59 each which equals $236. I feel like you need to do something to make this right or I will not be using your site any longer

Fun course with fast greens

Fun little course that is well kept. Minimal hazards to worry about but small fairways. Greens played lightning fast but were a bit bumpy. Watch out for gators.
