The National Golf Club of Louisiana
The National Golf Club of Louisiana is the cornerstone of the Westlake community. The course wanders through towering stands of beautiful Louisiana soft pines that provide an idyllic setting. The layout measures more than 7,000 yards from the back tees, offering plenty of holes that will please long hitters. The challenging greens are known to be some of the largest of any golf course in the area. The size of the greens can accommodate a variety of hole locations, allowing the course to play differently each time. You'll be tested with 80 strategically placed bunkers and 14 different lakes that come into play throughout. The generously wide fairways are seemingly docile but the subtle slopes and rolling terrain can be unforgiving. Accuracy and proper club selection are the keys to scoring well at The National Golf Club of Louisiana.

Course is great. Pace is SLOW
Had a 9:40 Tee time on Saturday morning. The range is in good shape. Practice putting and chipping greens are not reflective of the green conditions on the course (Greens on the course are much faster). We teed off 15 minutes after our scheduled tee time due to the course backing up already. GPS cart had us at 10 minutes behind pace after just 3 holes and we finished our round in just over 5 hours and not once did any marshall come out and ask anyone to pick up the pace of play. Makes for a long frustrating round when you are waiting that long between shots. The course is in great shape all around but if they don't enforce the pace of play as they track on the carts then you might as well find somewhere else during these hot summer days.
Best All Around Course
This course is one of the best for the price in the area. Great staff and restaurant. As of late, the fairways are 8/10, Greens 7/10, and outside cuts & bunkers 8/10.
Nice course for the money !
Great course but they had just aerated the greens and only had 9 holes open.
Would have been nice if there was a notice posted.
Only complaint is there are a lot
of fivesomes playing during the week.
Highly recommend. Fairways were in good shape. The greens were in great shape and true. The pins placements were tough on some holes so you had to decide to play to wide open space or challenge your game. No Marshall on the course but pace of play for our threesome was good. Plenty of water but only in play if you missed badly. Great service on the course.
Great course, but pace of play can be a little slow. We had a tee time a little after 11:00am and there were many groups of 5 in front of us which can really slow things down.
