Top 10 golf courses in Louisiana in 2016

From New Orleans to Lake Charles and upstate, golfers at Golf Advisor rated and reviewed the best courses in Louisiana for 2016. The results feature the current and former PGA Tour venues, plus a handful of other courses you may not know but have left a lasting impression.

To compile our state lists, we used a similar method to that of our our national Top 50 ranking . A course's score is based on their overall (50%) rating and subcategory average (50%). Reviews are weighted based on how prolific that reviewer is on Golf Advisor, and a course receives a bump in their rating if their score is better than that reviewer's average score.
