The views from this course are wonderful and the course itself is well maintained. The greens especially are smooth, subtlety contoured, and run true. The live oaks surrounding the course are very nice and the course has many holes where water comes into play. I intend to play this course many times in the future.

Nabbed a tee time after landing at MSY. Great little executive course for me. If you hit driver over 250, you won't use it on but 2 holes. Lots of cool par 3s. Tons of nice scenery on the running trail that is around the park.

I played this course based from great reviews at this site. I had a great time here and the course was alot better than I thought considering it's a shorter course.

If this course was regulation size, it can easily host Professional tournaments since this course is very well maintained and manicured. The Greenskeepers are doing a great job with that place. All holes were designed beautifully, especially the two Par 5s....wow!

Definitely a must-play for all players. It also helps that Golfnow has daily specials at $20/round, so, it's the best Value in the whole New Orleans area.

A lot of my game comes from big drives off the tee box. This course has helped me tremendously on my short game. Great deal for a quick round of golf. I've walked it in under 2 hours (in a hurry) but normally ride for about 3 hours. Greens are so so but the tee boxes and fairways are kept up well. I'm a 16 hcp but at Audubon, I typically shoot between +8 to +14. Probably my most played course in the area because of price. I enjoy most holes but a few of them are average at best. If you are a below a 15 hcp then play from the back tees it will give you a challenge with a few long par 3s

Short course, 31-31. Fairways and greens in good shape. Several tee boxes slightly uneven. Bunkers in bad shape - unplayable. Still recommend playing if good deal is available though.

We sincerely appreciate your review! Here at The Golf Club at Audubon Park we pride ourselves in providing a first class experience in every part of our operation. I understand your concern with the bunkers, but do to the large amount of rain we had in the days leading to your round, we had a significant amount of washout in all of our bunkers. The Grounds Crew worked very hard to get the bunkers back to top notch condition. We hope that we see you again soon, and if you have any questions feel free to contact Paul or Allan at 504-212-5292

I play this course 3 or 4 times a month. I absolutely love the layout and how this course keeps calling you back out to try to beat it. Today was a most unfortunate day and I had the most unsatisfying round here. I always play as a single and have no problems joining another group. Today I started out by myself and caught up to the twosome ahead of me. They nicely waived me through so that I could keep my own pace and rhythm. The front nine was nice and easy at a staggering fast pace. Upon getting to the 10th tee I encountered a foursome that were just getting to the green. As my play caught up to them I discovered that over the next 7 holes I had to wait nearly 10-12 minutes for every shot. These guys were lining up each other's putts and rather than putting out and one guy in particular stood over each putt for 2-3 minutes before he hit and missed badly. They knew I was behind them and never once waived me through. It was even so bad that on 18 they were lining up each other's 7 and 8 shots. Again the guy stayed over his ball for 2-3 minutes before he made his 9th or 10th shot into the hole. My game was done after 10 with having to wait so long for every shot. They even had other 4somes catch up to me who were not even in the parking lot when I teed off at 1. I want a refund or a comp round. This was more than pathetic. They need a Marshall to run the course and speed up slow players with no etiquette. I love this course and it's staff but today was a day to forget. Very very dissatisfied. Do play here. You won't be disappointed. Par 62 executive course with plenty of par 3 length from the tips and great conditions. Beautiful scenery and top notch staff.
