Golf has been played at City Park since 1902 when the nine-hole New Orleans Golf Club opened. At the time it was one of only 80 golf courses in the country. There were four 18-hole courses at the complex before it was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The North Course was rebuilt in 2009 and now there is also a 36-hole mini-golf complex. The course is just over 5,400 yards from the back tees and features water on eight holes. Proper club selection is the key to scoring well on this layout. The golf course is popular among both locals and visitors because it's not only player friendly enough to accommodate all skill levels but its location is also easily accessible from anywhere in New Orleans. The affordable rates make it even more appealing and there's also a 74-stall driving range.

Local weather had the course in pretty bad shape, but the greens were great. Good value for your money.

Only if you are desperate or a beginner..

It’s a shame they don’t keep this course up, because it’s actually a good fun layout. It’s a goat ranch and The greens are horrible.

If you are a beginner, go for it before playing a real course. Otherwise, save your money and play somewhere else.

Ehhhhh. You get what you pay for.

Greens are terrible on the front nine. They become below average on the back nine. Fairways can be un kempt. Tee boxes have potholes. But you can't hate on it too much because you get what you pay for...it's a classic spot. A good place to learn the game and not take it too seriously.

OK ..... but

An ok course sadly neglected since the high dollar beast across the street was built. Needs better drainage and some manicuring. Glad its there, but should be better cared for.

Thank you for playing the north course. Please understand that dormant grass is quite different from dead grass!
