Home of the LSU Tigers

Had the opportunity to play the University Club, the private club that is the home of the LSU Tigers golf teams. Don't let private fool you - this isn't an uppity stuffy club. It's like the people around it - down to earth.

The course is quite long from the tips, but offers lots of options for tee boxes. The third hole is a 673 yard par 5 with an insane forced carry across the water. The bailout is a narrow fairway cut with high grass right. Not for the faint of heart.

Probably the neatest feature of the course is it's quartet of par 3 holes. All are tremendously challenging and picturesque.

We played on a Thursday. It was busy but not packed. The course itself is very nice, the shot values are good. The layout is nice. The grasses were a little thin, particularly in the chipping areas. Greens are slick but pretty true.

Overall I found the course to be a good test of a golfer's game. Novice golfers would be highly challenged here with the forced carries and OB on a few holes, but for intermediate to skilled golfers, it's a nice test.
